Hydraulic slide issue 2007 Journey

I have a 2007 Winnebago Journey with hydraulic slides. The issue is I need to toggle the extend/retract switch numerous times to get the slide to move. Does this sound like a solenoid issue?

Without the info on which of the 2007 Journey you have we can't do much looking to see what you have, but some general ideas may fit?
One is that there are several things in the slide operation and the solenoids are kind of the last step when they open and close.
To make that happens the first step is the power and wiring to get the signal to the solenoids.
Perhaps it is just that I understand the switch and wiring better but I would much prefer to look at making sure the signal was getting to the solenoid before I went into the underneath part to sort trouble with the solenoid!
First thought for me would be that I don't know WHICH solenoid while I do know where the switch is and that makes me go there first to test the switch and make sure it is not just something as simple as the wire on the back has broken loose?

Many of us can spot if a switch is working but I would feel less sure if I could spot a bad solenoid!
Both could wear out or break, so I go for the one that fits me better and save the worst for last! But that is based on what I know and my experience and yours may be different. Do you have hydraulic experience to work on that end?

Thanks for the reply. The Journey is a 36G with two driver side slides. I do have a pretty high mechanical aptitude but 12 volt kind of makes me crazy. I will call HWH tomorrow for their input.

I have replaced my Bedroom slide switch twice so far on my 2005 36G. I purchased this switch from graingerRocker Switch: Rocker Switch, DPDT, Momentary On/Off/Momentary On, 6 Connections, Black, Black
Item 10C583Mfr. Model VLD1S00B-AZC00-000 $7.32 each
My symptoms were the same as you are having. I also read in other threads that the switch was a common problem. I have 2 spares.
The bedroom slide switch is a pane to get to. I had to go from the bathroom and move the plumbing aside to get at the backside of the bedroom switch to replace.
