RE: PUZZLER: Slides & jacks are dead

It would help if you knew your RV and what it does or doesn’t have for slide motion and leveling motion.. this way I could precisely tell you where to look and what to check.. If hydrauilc slide out the THUNK noisier you are hearing is the dual polarity solenoid mo7nted on the hyd pump motor. That indicates you are getting power to solenoid but not enough to run the pump motor.. Here is a l8nk to tell you how to test the solenoid and pump motor. These should be located inside an access door on one of the sides and you would,not be trying to gain access via underneath https://lci-support-doc.s3.amazonaws.com/technical-information-sheets/slideouts/ccd_0001894.pdf There is also,a manual,override for the slide and leveling system if this is hydraulic Need specifics as to what your systems are or aren’t to accurately help you an6 further

RE: hydro or electric leveling

Lippert Six POint Hydraulic and only Hyd slide outs... The In Wall electric slides are a finicky pain... And for those that DONT know the hyd system .. IF THE HYD pump motor fails then the entire system is easily manually overridden with a simple cordless drill, 1/4 inch allen bit for pump motor end and 5/32 allen wrench... If a Schwintek IN Wall slide out fails due to a motor then you have to lift both motors up out of the tracks and manually try and push the slide in My current fifth wheel is 3 slides, all hydraulic and six point hyd level up system.. 8 years of use.. no issues with anything

RE: Tire Failure

going up a size to 10 ply E rated was a good move.. Where the tires are made is a mute point... Sailun S637 series are made in Vietnam and China and are some of the best RV tires on the road... I am running a set of Les Schwab Geo Star 14 ply on my fifth wheel...on my sixth year with them... Made in China...

RE: Timken Bearings

Timken bearings are NO better than OEM bearings anymore.. I have my OEM Dexter axle bearings in my 8 year old fifth wheel and see zero reason to spend money for Timkens...

RE: RV Refrigerators Cooling Issues

If you gave some specifics you will have better luck at getting some info to help.. Such as ... year/make/model of RV Fridge info... Norcold what? perhaps a 2118, etc The fridge will cool just fine full if it works right Door seal gap would be first thing to check with a dollar bill.. With door closed and a dollar bill in between door seal if it pulls out easily when checked at various locations on the seal you need to adress that issue first

RE: Question on Hydraulic Fluid

If the fluid in the Lippert level up is clear it is NOT transmission fluid… It is AW32 hydraulic oil.. nit all Lippert level up systems come from factory with Red ATF.. it depends on the builder and what they use.. My 2014 Keystone Alpine has clear fluid and is most certainly AW32..

RE: Slide out drifts open

Page 6 of this manual from Lippert will help your further. https://lci-support-doc.s3.amazonaws.com/manuals/slideouts/ccd_0001617.pdf

RE: Slide out drifts open

Hyd slide out creeping out when closed is caused by 1. Air in system. Cycle slides in and out 3 to 5 times to purge air 2. Internal or external leak on slide actuator 3. Hydac solenoid valve .. only one for hyd slides nit fully closed in manual override mode CW) or sticking valve DO NOT use a bar or anything else to keep hyd slides closed .. 2000 psi is used to keep slides closed or open and if leak is internal on actuator your can tear up your slide by locking in place
