It’s important to regularly inspect RV leveling jacks to ensure your Lippert slide room is in proper condition for use on any kind of roadtrip, whether you’ll be drydocking for days at a time or making a quick pit stop for the night. If you know all the components of your hydraulic slide room system are fully functional and well maintained, you can rest easier and get more bang for your buck.

While there’s not much to do in the way of maintenance (Lippert sliders are less stressful to care for than most), there are certainly things you can look for prior to hitting the road. To help you complete a thorough inspection, expert Dave Solberg walks you through his checklist for a hydraulic slide room system. He explains why each item is essential, and tells you what you should do if you find an issue with any of the components. As always, know before you go; save yourself the headache!

    My neighbor has a travel trailer and the leveling jacks on one side continues to shorten with time. Also the controls often don’t do anything when buttons are pushed. Power is there to the controls. Video doesnt play but a few seconds at a time with a minute break between the few seconds.

      Hello Robert,

      To provide more specific troubleshooting information we need the make, model, and year of your rig as well as the jacks. If you added fluid then I believe they are hydraulic. Do you get any noise from the motor trying to work? The most common hydraulic jacks are HWH and Power Gear unless it’s newer and could be a Lippert Components Inc (LCI) system?
