You can also try to ground the jacks manually and level manually instead of just pushing "auto level". Sometimes this will let you raise the front just enough to get level but keep the front wheels on the ground. Usually in these circumstances you will be resting just on your rear suspension and the rear jacks really won't be supporting much so you may feel a little more movement back there.

I know it probably won't hurt the system to raise the front wheels off the ground with the leveling jacks, but IMHO is certainly puts a lot of stress on it when with a few easy steps can be avoided.
I haven't checked with lippert, but when I was considering big foot and HWH, and both of them said that you could store your RV completely raised up if you wanted your tires off the ground for long term storage. The only thing they said is that if you did this, you should periodically wipe down and lubricate the jacks during long term storage.
