Hydraulic Slide Issue
Here’s a question for you hydraulic experts.
2018 BerkshireXL 40C, with 2 Equalizer hydraulic slides and jacks.
Kitchen slide is slide #1
Bunk / wardrobe is slide #3
If I am operating slide room #3, with the cylinder removed from slide room #1, should there by any fluid coming out of the either of the open lines for slide #1 ?
My kitchen slide was drifting. I removed the cylinder on slide #1. Mean while as I was waiting for eq to send a replacement cylinder I opened slide #3 and tried to close it. It won’t close but there was a lot of fluid lost through the green striped hose (slide #1 retract) and none had come out of slide #1 (extend)
I was surprised that there would be fluid coming out of the one of the open lines for slide #1. It has me thinking that there might be a problem with the seals on the pump and this could by why the slide was drifting in the first place
Anyone got any thoughts ? I do not know if the fluid was coming out when I extended or retracted (or both) slide #3. Unfortunately I only checked the bucket after I tried to bring it in.
I really appreciate any information you can share.
My question is: should the systems i.e. slide 1, slide 2,front right jack, front left jack, etc, etc be completely isolated from each other ? I was fairly surprised to see fluid coming out from one of slide 1's hoses, when I was operating slide 3. It could be a coincidence, but I find it strange that the only side of the slide 1 that had fluid coming out of the open hose was the side for retracting slide 1, which is the issue I am having (keeping slide # 1 closed).
