Question Small hyd. cylinder above propane tank

we have a 99 Monaco Windsor which has a access door on the right side in front of the fuel door. this door I assume is for access to the forward slide cylinder. I am curios as to what the small hyd. cylinder parallel to the front bulkhead is for, it is hooked into the hyd. system but is not attached to anything, curios as to what its purpose is.
any information is appreciated thanks Bill

I think they call it a balancing cylinder. It's not hooked to anything, but reacts to the fluid pressure coming off the cylinders that are doing the work of moving your slides. Kinda like, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction theory. Just what I have been told on mine.

What Randy said... You have one in the rear somewhere too if your bedroom slides are hyd.
