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!
1 of my leveling jacks makes a pinging noise when extended. Why is this happening and what does it mean?
I would like to help but need more information on the system. Is it electric or hydraulic? Do you know the manufacturer and model of the leveling system? Does it happen only when it first moves or does it repeatedly make the sound as it’s moving? I would like to further assist if I could get some more information please.
