Ran it out and did the same. Repeated it again to purge air. It is still creeping out 3/4 of inch in several hours. Can't afford to replace the other solenoid now on this trip. Any suggestions?
you need to tell us more about your rv. you can do this by adding info in the signature area of your profile.
if you have hwh solenoids, loosen the manual release valve about 1 to 2 turns.
i have to do that to keep my rear slide from creeping out while we are driving.
after replacing the solenoid valve 3 times,
i developed this system:
i leave the extend solenoid release fitting loose all the time. i installed fittings on the floor so that i can install a tie down strap.
i use 2x4 lengths of lumber in the overheads of both slides to make sure that they do not auto extend.
if i ever get to the hwh factory in iowa, they say that they can fix my problem.
