I agree. But you see it all the time. I have seen big DP's with the rear's 6 inches off the ground.

Also saw a huge TT, 35 feet maybe, that had one side lifting the tires off the ground by at least 8-10 inches

I wouldn't think that is good for anything but maybe no harm is being done.

In 2001 I went to Big Foot's factory in White Pigeon to have them installed on our 32' DESIGNER "C" (JAYCO wasn't using the system then) and when the rep did the demo we where parked in an area where it lifted the front tires, He said no problem also.

It doesn't hurt the jack system therefore bigfoot has no problem but the coach builder(Jayco) does

Spoke with rick at Bigfoot this morning told him what I did and he said sounds good to him..ie level first before deploying slider and retract slider while level...he did indicate front wheels up not ideal but not harmful just not stored that way...no hybrid makes a good point though that Jayco may advise differently regarding coach needs..also perhaps I could have done better manually leveling but can't imagine avoiding no wheels up at this site which we really liked..when I go there again I will bring chocks and blocks and play with more..and hopefully catholic some bass!
