Have read many posts regarding the inadequacies of HWH pressure lines as mine had a leak at the crimp on the LR slide. I removed the hose and replaced it with a better quality one. However, I had great difficulty as there doesn't seem to be any way to bleed the air out. As a result, the slide got jammed with one side stuck out and the other side in a bit.
We had to do several things you are not supposed to do involving chains, a tractor and push bars but the slide is now going in and out and seems to have synchronized itself.
Immediately following this repair, I stopped for fuel 200 miles down the road to discover that the rear BR slide was kicked out about 2 inches at the bottom. I attempted to run it back in and discovered that a rear line had now failed and I had a gusher of hydraulic fluid puddling under the coach.
The rear slide only has one cylinder so I don't need to worry about have the slide cocking itself sideways as before ( I think). The problem I am worried about is that there will still be the problem of bleeding off the air in the replacement line. I have read my manual and there doesn't seem to be any info on removing air from the system.
Does anyone have any information that might help me complete this line replacement without the agony I went through on the other slide? And is there any way to change out a hose on a two cylinder slide and remove the air?
And of course, none of this would be necessary if HWH actually provided reasonable quality fittings and hydraulic lines in the first place.
Thanks to any and all that can help,
