Hydraulic generator slide

My gen slide is powered by HWH. The problem is that the HWH system is not operational, but is on the slide. How do I get to the slide to work on it?

Is there a manual release mechanism?

Any help?

2008 Mountain Aire, 4528

Any help here?

I got the hydraulics working, and now the generator is accessible, but I still want to know how to get to the thing when the system doesn't work. There should be a workaround.

You could unbolt the cylinder ram end and try to force it out from underneath. Or tie rope or strap to sliding frame. You would have pull it down on an angle as not to put stress on fiberglass cover. But that also means jacks are NA in this scenario , not that you should be crawling under that way, so might need to drive up on blocks/ramps/lumber.

Thanks, 153.

Yeah, I finally figured out that there was a cylinder under the center of the slide. I'm really glad that I didn't have to do all that. The problem we had was that the jacks were down, but too close to the ground to get under. I couldn't drive the coach to put it on blocks. I couldn't reach the valves to manually release them. Basically I was stuck.

I had a bad solenoid switch to replace. It was almost possible to get it exchanged out, but I left it hanging on the wires. The fix worked, and I could run the slide out to work on it to get the thing remounted.

In my opinion, it is simply a case of bad design. The solenoid failed with no warning (whoever heard of a warning on a solenoid?) so there is no fix and no help except to call for expensive service.

I got lucky, but quite a lot of people would be up the creek without a paddle.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Tom
