Nice work Dennis.

I had to rebuild a slide room cylinder about 10 years ago on our 2003 Dynasty as the rear would creep out over a few days. Mine was leaking internally past the packing though and not leaking externally. Rebuilding was the easy part, getting the thing out the driver's side was the most difficult as I had to disassemble the entire electrical bay by removing the power cord reel, surge protector inner facia of the compartment just to get to the end of the ram with the hose connectors and mounting fasteners.

Then two years ago I replaced the hoses for the equalizer cylinders for the front two rooms as they were leaking. Those weren't too bad other than a couple of zip-ties that they had installed while the chassis was on the assembly line and before the floor went down were very difficult to gain access to in order to cut.

Enjoying following along on your work Dennis. You're doing a great job.

I thought the hoses had to be a specific length (maybe equal length) - did HWH say it is okay to make some of the hoses shorter?

Thanks Mike. I've had a couple bad experiences where I didn't totally rebuild something and had to tear into it again to replace something I'd left because it wasn't an issue at the time. I have a 1975 Honda XL 350 that still has about 200 miles on a top end rebuild because the clutch seal started leaking oil within months of the rebuild. I drained the fuel and haven't ridden it since.

I don't have curb side slides so removing the cylinders has been a piece of cake.

There are two pairs of hoses that have to be the same length, but the length itself isn't specific. The pair that goes from the tee junction to the room slides has to be the same length, mine are 132". The pair that goes from the synchronizer cylinder to the room slides also has to be the same length, mine are 144". The other two, one from the hydraulic pump to the tee, and the other from the hydraulic pump to the synchronizer cylinder can be any length.

The slide cylinders are finished, $494 for the pair. I’m waiting for HWH parts to call me back so I can order the hoses. No one in my area makes 3/16” hoses. HWH parts is two weeks behind so hopefully they’ll call next week

While those rams are out is the time to replace the polycarbonate bearing pads while everything is loose. Lots easier than doing with pressureized system.

You’re talking about the pads between the inner and outer square tubes? How do you replace them?

Nice work!

How much pressure does the system work under?

HWH says they use 2100 lbs. of pressure.

Specs here: http://www.hwhcorp.com/ml23567.pdf

I found that. I have the hydraulic cylinder out, but I don't have the rails disconnected and I'm not going to do that.

I read that and it looks like it makes 2100 lbs of force if I’m not mistaken…..

Doesn’t mention anything about Hydralic pressure on the system.

Seems like you will have to back calculate the pump pressure. Determine the diameter of the piston, calculate areas (A=r^2*Pi). 2100/Area should give you the pressure.



Still seems like a lot, no wonder when something isn't working right there is damage.
