HWH slide blew hose- one side stuck

I have a 2007 Adventurer 35L that has has no problems to date. Recently, when extending the front slide (couch, dinette), only the front edge moved, and before I noticed it the front was 1/2 way out and the rear edge was still in. I found a hose had blown off its fitting, so I assume the rear cylinder did not move due to lack of pressure. I have a replacement hose coming from HWH, but have been waiting for 10 days for a technical support call back. Winnebago tells me I should be able to manually extend the slide once the solenoid bypass is opened; the front of the slide and the top of the rear edge will move, but the bottom of the rear edge appears to be stuck and in a bit further than flush due to binding when the front of the slide extended. I attached a come along and exerted a significant amount of tension to the rear of the slide, but no movement. When I receive the hose, should I run the pump to see if the slide might rectify itself when pressure is present in both cylinders, or am I stuck with taking it to a dealership?
Thanks,
Moseley

You are so crooked that the in side is jammed. I would NOT try going out further. I would bring the side that is further out in until they are even. then run them out. You may have to plug the bad side hose to do this.

HWH slide blew hose- one side stuck

Ok. This has happen to me, while moving on the Highway! Was able pull off the road, saw the blown hose, called the nearest RV repair place. They were able to have a new hose the very next day. Upon replacement AND adding more fluid to the system everything worked again. Add fluid before to try moving a thing!
Doing this yourself, bring the slide IN all the way, before you try much!

I second this suggestion. I had a recent slide HWH problem and Paul spent a lot of time on the phone with me helping me out. Price charged for his time and advice was extremely reasonable.

Thanks to all!
Replaced hose, ran pump until fluid emerged, tightend fittings, and slide moves as it should with one eception; it will not extend all the way to seal the bottom corners. I am hoping that is air in the system that hopefully will self bleed after multiple cycles?
Thoughts?

Again, thanks to all...

it seems to always be something simple. The manual retract screw jack on one side still had some threads engaged, and would not allow the room to move the last few inches. I noticed the bind when crawling around trying to figure out how to bleed the rams. I loosened the screw jack and now the room extends properly.
Thanks to all for your help!

Thanks for posting your progress and success. You are right, the hyd system will self-purge over time, just monitor oil level closely until it always checks full. I don't know what your system contains, but mine takes HWH, or Type A transmission fluid.
