I looked through the rest of the pictures for the 'used' unit and they show a switch panel w/switch so maybe the other pair go there.
One of the pictures has a contact phone number so maybe they can give you some support. I'd take a few pictures of your pump that you might be able to post here and send to them if they seem helpful.
Build sheets on RVs? Read through this forum and you'll find that the dealers don't even know what's in a rig.
Good luck but don't give up on us, someone will help you get it figured out.
Thanks again for the information. I really am surprised there are no build sheets. Don't you get an order form or something if you spec out a new travel trailer?
I didn't have anything better to do today except get greasy so took the pump out. Hardest part was disconnecting the two hydraulic lines. Now it has to be whatever is in that little aluminum box that I can't figure out how to get into it without destroying the kitchen floor under the sink.
The old pump works fine (motor runs at least) when hooked directly to the pickup battery. And the hydraulics must work or we would not have been able to manually jack it in.
Does anyone know what that aluminum box is? Can I just hook the pump back up directly to the battery without whatever that aluminum box is and then disconnect the pump when I get the slide in or out? I can just put new wires and connectors direct to the battery out the side of the compartment (or even leave it on the ground-have enough hydraulic line to hook it up on the ground). OR is there something special in that little aluminum box?
I REALLY don't want to have to call the RV guy. Last time, his call out charge was $200 JUST TO LOOK. Then $145.00 per hour. That is more than it costs to work on my semis at Peterbilt or Kenworth. I am almost 80 miles from the closest RV repair shop, so dragging the trailer into the shop, leaving it for a few days and going back to get it would be almost 320 miles and is almost as expensive as calling the guy out. This should not be as complicated a problem as it is turning into.
