Levelers as jacks

I need to change the valve stem extensions on my 2017 Windsport 29M. Is it ok to use the leveling system in manual to jack up the rv to take the outside tire off?

Iíve done it many times
That said, I usually add jack stands under the elevated frame as a safety precaution.

I use a bottle jack that is capable of holding the weight besides the levelers for safety.
