Slide out /hydraulic jacks intermittent problem....

Okay so I have a 1997 Thor pinnacle... Pretty much impossible to find any wiring schematics. Little bit of bad ground how the problem started. I'm new to the whole RV living. So it's been sitting in an RV park for 7 months tried to start it and it wouldn't start. I thought maybe it was because the jacks were down and slide was out. So I operated them without it running. Burned up my converter due to bad batteries. Replace batteries, starter, starter solenoid, converter. Now the jacks and slide out don't work. So I tried the hydraulic solenoid... I get a clicking noise at the pump and at the control panel for hydraulics. Solenoid was not exact match so I thought maybe I hooked it up wrong. just to make sure I took it off and hooked up the old one again. Started the RV made sure coach and chassis buttons were lit. Turn slide out key. Hit retract. It works I brought slide in and jacks up. Thought I was good to go so I went to put Jack's back down one at a time only got through one and it's not working again.... I tried to repeat process... Worked and then stopped working again still have one Jack down. Any thoughts would be appreciated

I feel your pain. We have had a slide out issue since we bought our coach last year brand new. Thor keeps saying its fixed but about every 10th time it will just just do nothing but a little clicking sound. Our hydraulics are by Lippert and they have a fabulous customer service support. IF yours are also LCI, give them a call at 574-537-8900. They will spend time on the phone with you walking you thru what needs to be done. As for ours, we need something to finally fail consistently so Thor will replace it. Lippert believes our is related to our Firefly control panel.
