Anybody have a little advise. The gen. compartment wont go out. I checked the pump and it was out of fluid. Filled it up and it still does not work. Do you have to bleed the air out of the system? It sounds like the pump is running. Thanks Joe and Pam

My guess is you have a serious leak to loose all the fluid. Have you found the leak?

Try running it in the retract mode to prime and bleed the air out. Where is it leaking at? If it is a hose you will have to have it fixed before it will move the slide.

Well I can't find any major leak but there wea a lot of oil around the fill cap. Maybe it leaked out there. I guess I will try to bleed it and see what happens.

Whenever checking the fluid level of a hydraulic system be sure all jacks, slide rooms step covers and generators slides are retracted first; otherwise the level will be low and if the reservoir is filled, it will over flow when the fluid in the pistons returns.

That was a good idea about everything being in but the only thing this pump does is the gen slide. I guess I will get under there today and bleed it. Thanks for the help.
