Level L to R before anything else. Then chock and disconnect TV. Level F to R and extend corner supports. If on firm site, I've never noticed any sag from the slides when extended. Maybe need to check it out next time I set up. Any way never heard an RV dealer say to extend and then level. With my ability to forget my name, I'd end up trying to move to a different site and rip the slide off hitting a tree.

Side Note: Pulled into CG office parking lot to return a bathroom key and a fellow pointed out that I had left the TV ant up. Thanked him and went inside the TT and lowered the ant. Upon returning to my TV, was again flagged down by a passerby who pointed to my extended slide, which I had partially opened so I could get back to the rear for the TV Ant. Get my point.

My current rig has two slides on the same side. I learned to compensate for the expected sag using a level. I put slides out last othewise I have to crawl under one of them to hook stuff up.

I always level with the side with two slides just a little bit higher than level. Then when the slides are extended everything is level. I check for level side to side and then add a 2X8 on the side with slides. If you end up being low on the slide side you can't raise it enough with the stabilizer jacks. Wow, to many slides and sides.

Agree with Clutch. I put 1/2 in. padboards under the slide side wheels. That usually levels out the trailer because my Eagle 320 RLDS has 2 big slides.

My Jayco manual says to have the trailer level before moving the slides.
