OK... This is real crazy and does point to hydraulics.

I was using the automatic levelers and as it was leveling itself, the main slide started moving out from closed position.
Does an RV guy fix this hydraulic problem or go to a truck repair shop?

A good RV technician can repair your problem or a hydraulic repair shop. Not many truck shops would want to tackle slide issues

Jack and Slide systems are NOT worked on by Truck shops. You need to find a qualified RV service center. Call them and state your Year/Model and type slide/jack system and ask if they have worked on that type system before. Only go to a shop that has knowledge of your system. Since the Jacks operation causes the slide room to move, that points to a pump area solenoid. BUT, some LCI slide systems did have a hose connected to the rear jacks. That would point to a slide ram internal leak. Go to LCI1.com and find your manual for your system. Doug
