Silly newbie question

I have a new 32bhds with electric stabilizer jacks.

Should I extend the slideouts before lowering the stabilizer jacks, or vice versa.

I know, I'm a newbie, but thanks for all advice.

Ensign.

I stabilize first then put the slides out.

What we have found is that when we level our trailer and chock the wheels and run out the stabalizers then run out the slides our trailer will be low on the side with the slides. We now have it truely level with all the slides out and have leveling bubbles set for that. We have to set the side with the two slides an inch and a half higher than the other side. I guess the pantry, refrigerator, and under bed storage is kind of heavy.

We have to do our 32BHDS the same way.

We do our 36BHDS the same way, level side to side, level front to back, jacks down and then slides out.
