Smile Hi.

My name is Vinnie. I have been enjoying reading all the posts, but havenít come across my problem.
We purchased a Thor freedom elite with a full slide. When i level the coach and put the stabilizers down and extend the slide when I do this the stabilizer on the opposite side of the slide lifts up about 2 inches.
Anyone have the same problem or know a fix? I am thinking of putting a jack stand under the frame.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

I believe that there are some members that have experienced the RV leaning slightly after extending the slide (especially smaller units with a full wall slide). The solution has been to level it with the slide side slightly up (by about the same amount that it drops when extended). Thus after "leveling" with the slide side up and extending the slide you're back to level.

I had that problem. I ended up installing Bigfoot Hydraulic Levelup system

We're glad that you've joined in on all of the fun...
Jamie is right: set yourself up so that when you extend the slide: everything sort of levels itself out. It might be a bit of a "trial & error" game for the first try or so, but you'll quickly figure out just how much "lean" you need.

Agree with above suggestions but whatever you do during your experimentation...don't operate the levelers with the slides out. If you have to readdress the issue once the slides are out...retract them, re-level and fully extend them again.
