Leaking hydralic fluid from slide pin lock

Well.. been here twice, once in mexico and once in utah... messy to say the least.. after the repair I had oil seep from the bladder lower right side of the slide as you are outside looking at the coach. Leaked for a few days after the fix.

Thanks for the links to posts.  In your post there is a picture of the slide lock, on the right side of your slide lock picture you can see three wires going into a sensor that I assume tells the computer whether the slide lock is engaged or...

I'm a little confused.  I don't think there is a pressure sensor at the lock mechanism.  There is a magnetic switch that looks a little bit like a toy pistol made out of brown plastic resin (about 3" long) that has the electrical wires you are...

Here are a couple pics I took when mine leaked.. pic 1 you can see the flat looking part on the lower right corner (sensor).  It slides out and the only place for liquid to leak is from the fittings or the top nut. I am going to guess its your...

I have included a picture of my slide lock mechanism.  In the upper right hand corner of the block you can see where wires go into the block, this is were I thought my leak was coming from.  It looks like it is screwed into the block from the...

 I believe that goes to the sensor not that block . Get some rags cover everything up real good and remove it. Only lWay to tell

Finally had time to take block down, and it seems to be leaking from the hole that the sensor sits in (see photo).  Would this leak be coming from a bad seal at the big nut on bottom of slide lock block and migrating up the sensor tube (Does it...

Found this interesting video on HWH site (need to start slide show in powerpoint to see).   Based on the video it doesn't look like fluid should get into the hole for the sensor.  Just trying to figure this out before I tear apart something that...

Only places it can leak besides a crack... The big nut or the hose connectors

David, when you took yours apart did the hole for the sensor go from top to bottom and come out near the big nut and did you just replace o'rings at the bottom or did it need something else?  I seem to remember from your post that you tried to...
