2011 Monaco Knight hydraulic slide out problem.

Reciently the big living room slide out started coming in at a "crooked" angle. The aft end of the slide molding, inside, would begin to hit the adjacent cabinets while retracting. The forward end would be much closer when measuring, almost 5 inch difference.

I am not able to find any adjustments other than the three nuts on the two hydraulic ram shafts. I have had the aft ram rebuilt although there were no leaks. I have also replaced the hydraulic valve on the pump manifold.

Are there other adjustments I am not seeing? Is there a procedure for getting this much adjustment just using the exposed bolts?

I am able to push the aft part of the slide and influence it to come in as someone monitors the clearence from the inside. And, I can bring the slide in by myself by jostling the foreward portion and repeatedly working the switch; do this three times until the slide completely comes in straight. It is perplexing process.

Thank you. For any suggestions. I am surely not the first to have this problem.

Ok, we ran the cylinders in and out ant the motor stopped, will not come on.
Checked fuses and relays, all ok.
Tested the silenoid and found weak voltage...replaced the silenoid.
Still on action from the pump.

Anybody know if the hydraulic pump motor can be jumped straight from a 12 volt power source?
