I am getting back into camping and travelling and have acquired a 2008 SilverBack. I have a couple of questions that I am hoping you more experienced individuals might have answers for. First, the trailer uses a hydraulic fluid system to put slides in and out. In the event of an emergency and the fluid line would burst while camping is there a manual way to put slides in? Second, a couple of the decals are in bad shape. I found a source for new ones and would like to replace them. What is the easiest was to remove old decals?

I thank you in advance for any help you might provide.

A friend told me he watched a guy in Yuma use some kind of spray on his decals and it loosened them so they would scrape off easily. That’s all I know about it… Tried doing a search. I had one RV with hydraulics and all I ever had to do was re-tighten a couple of leaky fittings. No other problems. I kind of remember seeing an auxiliary jack handle on the pump in case the motor died but I don’t think that would do you any good if you blew a line and lost the fluid. Hopefully there’s another way to operate the slides if that happens besides sheer manpower. Craig
