If it is a HWH control box problem, not turning on the pump like I just experienced, there are a couple of procedures I have found on this forum in the past. These will bypass the control box, allowing the pump to run. You can then use the slide retract button.

Years ago a member named Wayne R wrote about how to build a bypass box to operate the jacks and slides in the event the control box fails. But that doesn't do you any good at the immediate moment. But the above procedures might help.

If not electrical, there is manual procedure involving releasing the pressure on the slide solenoids and using brute force to push it in. Not fun. But bedroom slides are easier to push in manually than the living room slide. The jack solenoids have a Tee handle, the slide solenoids have a hex nut to loosen. Beyond that I can't help you identify which solenoids for which slide.

The bypass box that Wayne R wrote about does work as described, assuming you get the correct connector to mate with the connector plug on the coach. I built one years ago, and got it working properly last week after my recent control box failure.

The rear slide can be manually pushed in. Go to the HWH manifold, go to lower manifold that has electric valves on both sides. Since it’s a little tricky to figure out which valves to open. I just open all of them. Then just have a friend help you push it in. After it’s pushed in close all valves on the lower manifold.

I got my right rear slide to be able to push in. In the battery on the fwd bulkhead above the light panel the is a cylinder. That cylinder operates the hydraulics of the slide. Each slide has one of these equalizers and they are hooked up in series with all the slides. I unhooked the supply hose and the output side joined them with a union. That took all the pressure off the slide and was able to push it in and lock it in place. I drove up to lake Marion today (120 miles) and the slide did not move. The small actuator on the aft side of the slide leaks there is no tomorrow. This is what caused the problem in the first place. Thatís not going to be easy to replace. Hope this info will help someone in the future. Remember each slide has an equalizer.
