Can you manually slide out hydraulic slides

We just pulled in for Easter weekend and the two front hydraulic slides on our 2009 Monaco Camelot wonít slide out. I know I can do a manual slide in. That said can I manually slide them out now and manually slide them in when we leave and then get it fixed at home?

Thanks in advance!

Can you manually slide out hydraulic slides

There is a relay that can pop up (disengage) in the driver side front electronics bay. It is for the 2 hydraulic slides. Push it back down.
Donít run both slides at the same time.

Also check your bay doors are all closed.

Also check the pump itself. The seals are known for leaking. The oil then enters the electric motor. If there is oil dripping at the motor to pump connection, you will need both. $$$
No way to manually extend. The process to pull them in has never worked for me either .
Just did this a couple years ago.

If your cargo bay doors open upward there will probably be interlock switches on each door that prevents the slideouts from moving with the door open. Those switches can go bad or get out of adjustment. I would manually bypass them, one at a time, to see it that's the problem!

The motor/pump is located in generator compartment to the driver's side, down low behind the headlight.

With someone inside working either front slide switch, see if you can hear the faint clicking of the solenoids. Touching them might be a better way. If they are working, but motor isnít turning, spin the motor with an electric drill motor.

After removing sticker covering end of motor, if it is still there, insert a thin wall 13mm socket on the nut and spin with drill motor. A 1/4" drive socket and extension work well in this situation. At same time, time have the other person work the inside switch to retract the slide.

Thanks for all the tips. As far as trouble shooting, I did do everything mentioned above prior to to posting, I should have clarified that. I checked bay doors, checked the 15amp fuse in the bathroom, checked the fuse and breaker in the electric panel in the compartment below the driver's seat. Still nothing. So, I called a mobile repair guy and his thought was/is, the pump is on it's way out but giving it the big hammer treatment would be worth a shot. Sure enough, it works for now. It is evident that there is a leak so I will tend to that when I get home but at least it works for now. It was an expensive tab for a guy to hit it with a hammer but worth it I suppose for the education and getting our coach so it can get us through the weekend. Live an learn...

Those pump motor units are spendy. I kept my old ones and rebuilt both for spares.
The new pumps come with a secondary seal on the shaft between the motor and pump now.

I carry a rebuild one as a spare as well. Last motor company covered under warrantee and the new one was an improvement in design over the previous two and it's been in now about 7 years.
