Keep in mind that this is my guess as to what is happening. These are the lower locks. I believe that there are similar locks on the top, but I have not verified that. I believe that oil pressure is supplied to two of the ports (to extend or retract the pins). I believe that the upper locks are supplied from the other ports (the lower blocks just acting as T’s). The electrical plug wires are marked extend and retract and must act like solenoids to apply pressure to extend or retract the locking pins. Mine have not been operational since I have had this LXI and I have not seen the slide move during over 40,000 miles, air pressure on the seal and hydraulic pressure on the cylinders seem to be adequate to hold it in place.

I had mine rebuilt on my 2003 LXi front slide with my in house mechanic. Parts consisting of o-rings were under $10 & bench time was 30 minutes.

Way to go Casey it took longer to clean up the fluid from the leak than remove the locks & do the repair.

still learning about the slide ... I'm assuming this is the lock we're talking about?



Here's a wide angle that shows the slide piston housing (I think)? ... what's the sensor thingy at the end with an electrical connection? Does that tell the slide controller that it's all the way in and to turn the pump off and extend the locking pin?

From what I have found examining my coach, I think you are right. It is the sensor that tells the controller that the slide is in position. There are physical stops that locate the slide, but it appears that the sensor is what tells the locks to actuate.

Yes, your picture shows the block that contains the locking pin.
