Hyd slide out creeping out when closed is caused by

1. Air in system. Cycle slides in and out 3 to 5 times to purge air
2. Internal or external leak on slide actuator
3. Hydac solenoid valve .. only one for hyd slides nit fully closed in manual override mode CW) or sticking valve

DO NOT use a bar or anything else to keep hyd slides closed .. 2000 psi is used to keep slides closed or open and if leak is internal on actuator your can tear up your slide by locking in place



Thanks for your reply. I'll try purging air out this weekend. I know it's not an external leak on cylinder because no sign of fluid anywhere. Could be an internal leak. I'll see what happens after I cycle the slides in and out a few times.

My trailer has coroplast closing off the undercarriage. If you are insulated, any fluid leak could be masked or absorbed by the insulation batting. There is a feed and return line for each cylinder with 3 threaded fittings for each. So that is 6 per cylinder. If only 1 slide is slipping, then that is a starting point. Also, in a sealed system, if you are low on fluid, it is going someplace, indicating a certain leak. Remember to check the level with everything retracted, including your hydraulic landing gear. Shouldn’t be any air in an already operating system unless it was opened, or a worn part/seal. Good luck!

It’s not what you’ve done that commands respect, it’s what you do.
