Hmm...I had never heard of selector valves before, but looking them up, I wonder if that's it. This would mean that whatever is supposed to make it operate when the switch is toggled in either position isn't doing its job. Thanks for the pointer!
Thanks for the idea, but I did check that out. All parts of the entire mechanism are completely whole. Also, if the ends of the cylinder heads had separated like you suggest, then the plungers in the cylinders would still operate, and they aren't.
I have a FunMover with an HWH hydraulic slide-out mechanism. The slide-out has stopped working, in that it won't move any more. The pump does spin with the normal sounds that it made when it did work. It refuses to move when I hit either the extend or the retract position on the rocker switch.
I've checked to make sure that the reservoir has plenty of oil in it, and it does. There is some sort of cylinder under the rv mounted to the frame, that I have previously seen move when the slideout has reached the end of its travel and the switch isn't released immediately. That is not moving now.
Any idea what might be wrong?
My thought at this point, is that since the motor is spinning, there's something wrong with the impeller. I question that though, since I've never heard of a hydraulic pump's impeller failing.
Also, when we first bought the unit, the slideout didn't operate and the dealer replaced a solenoid and that fixed it. When the bad solenoid was in, the pump motor would not operate at all, so this isn't that problem.
Thanks for all the input!! I don't know why contacting Thor didn't occur to me. And, thanks for the link to Hehr, based on what I can see from the website (and the detailed PDF), it looks like that is in fact the door I have.
I don't have any pics of the actual problem right now, I'll see if I can get some tomorrow after work.
The door RV door has been sagging for quite a while, and only recently realized that it's because the top hinge his bent. Because of this bend, the door latch barely works and the door hits at top edge and bottom below the latch.
I searched and haven't found any mention of this kind of problem before, but probably missed it.
Any suggestions? I think the previous owner had a run-in with a tree long ago, which I think explains the some of the problem, and I think the trip to Burning Man explains the majority. (Many very drunk people going in and out and hanging on the door.)
Anybody done anything like this? I'm not even sure where to find replacement doors. Are they somewhat standardized?
