Short answer- yes.
You will have to lower the front jacks before the rears will move though. I usually raise the front end just a little to take some weight off of the truck and then raise to rear to level. You will want it as level as possible before putting out any slides

You will not be able to use auto level with it attached to the truck. Manually lower the front landing gear until you see the front rise an inch or so then lower the rear jacks. I do the second part inside on the control panel with a 2' level on the floor so I can get it pretty close to level most of the time

I wouldn't as it may not do what you want it to do. The truck is artificially keeping the front end of the camper at a certain height. Auto level does not know this so when it lowers the front to level fore and aft, the front legs may come up off the ground. I would do as stated above, raise the front to take weight off the truck then raise the rears to level.

The issue will be if you are parked facing downhill. You may not be able to do this as the front legs may have to raise the front higher than the truck will allow to achieve level and you'll end up trying to raise the truck off the ground. Not sure the front legs are designed to lift that much weight.
