Default 2004 Endura how to operate slides manually?

Just taking a shot in the dark here. I have definite slide issues as they are blowing the fuse at the hydraulic pump motor. We were almost stranded with them open this past weekend. I know I need an expert to diagnose the issue, but nobody can even look at it until August.. Haha, one place told me to check back in December. I bought this unit preowned and really have no documentation on the manual operation of the slides. We are normally 3 or 4 day weekenders, but have a full week scheduled at the end of July. We've never done a full week and the Family was sooooo looking forward to it. I was going to cancel, but if I can open and close the slides manually, we'll do it. Maybe someone has info on manual operation of the hydraulic pump slide system??? I know there are different brands but perhaps, someone with an Endura from 04 to 07 or so , maybe there is documentation that would be helpful. Please help if you can !!!

I own a 2006 Gulfstream Endura 6340. I’ve never had to manually operate the slides (and hope that I never do). I checked my copy of the owner’s manual, which is marginally helpful. It says “If the hydraulic slide has to be manually moved in or out, refer to the instructions listed on the hydraulic reservoir for proper operation. If the instructions are not listed, contact the hydraulic system manufacturer or your nearest Gulfstream dealer for assistance.”

Not much help from the manual. I wish you luck in solving the problem and sorry that I could not be more helpful.

I have an 05 Ultrasupreme gasser with an Equilazier system, 4 jacks and 2 slides. Attached is the service info, piping and electrical drawings of the system, and trouble shooting chart. I have never had to manually bring my slides in but this explains how to do it.

Good luck

Something that is not shown is the plumbing to & from the reservoir. When I bought my MH there was only 1 of the jacks had a proximity switch and i didn't want to add any. So through dealing with Equilaizer Tech Support and reading the literature, I finally figured out the pump has a 90 sec timer on it. So when I push the button to raise the jacks the pump runs for 90 sec and the jacks come up, unless I have parked on a hill and some of the jacks are extended a long way. They may retract about 90%, then I have to bring the offending jacks up individually the rest of the way.

For the system to run for 90 secs there has to be a bypass valve in the system controlled by an electronic device. I would assume the device detects the pressure in the line and if it gets too high the bypass opens and dumps the fluid into the reservoir.

Just spitballing here, but if the electronic device fails, that may cause the pump fuse to blow. The bypass does not show up in the electrical or plumbing drawings so it maybe internal to the pump itself.

Also there is a check valve in the line to keep pressure in the hoses. My check valve leaks and I have never had it fixed. So, over time, like a week, one or 2 of the jacks will rise slightly and I have to lower them again. When I bring in the slides, I may have to bump them to get the lines full of fluid again before they will come in.

It's always something.

1) You can manually operate hydraulics tp retract (NOT sure about Extend?); need a handle for the built-in hand-pump (conduit/ pipe/ rod/ maybe big screw driver can work?); Little RED handles/ Knobs on valves to BYPASS HYDRAULIC SOLENDOIDS; 2) You can download PDF manuals from LCI/ Lippert/ website, they took over DEWALD; if blowing fuses; 3) Blowing fuses/ tripping breakers OFTEN caused by electric solenoids sticking engaged; 4) I replaced electric solenoids on mine and cured my breaker tripping issues after 2nd trip: You can buy OEM for $40-$75/each, but I used these just fine: https://www.amazon.com/Stens-435-435...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

Best practiced in the driveway and BEST to have "Circuit Breakers vs fuses" (My BREAKERS under step next to battery on my Class-C; but also now carry spare 12VDC breaker; found some bad when removing to replace CHARGE SOLENOID earlier this year.
