Full Wall Slide

I have a 2016 ace 30.2 with a full wall slide.

Q. 1) Should I always use my auto levelers and level the coach before putting out the wall slide ?

Q. 2) When in rocks or a little soft area it seems that when I level the coach first and then extend the wall slide, sometimes it appears to lean towards the slide side. Is it recommended to level again after i put out the slide ?

Yes, I always level first. That slide is big and needs support and stabilization. You may want to adjust level from side to side a little high on the slide side. Might have to Manuel level some to accomplish the right level.

Thanks for the suggestion. I normally turn off the engine before i extend the slide, but i guess i could turn the leveler panel back on after i slide out.

Not sure, but I don't think you can extend the slide with the engine running. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

I think the suggestion was to manually level a little high on the slide side BEFORE extending the slide... so the end result is level...
I would hesitate to twist the frame by moving jacks with that long a slide deployed trying to level after..

I agree. I'm just going to level a little high on the slide side
