Joe I don't remember reading about the starting sequence. It's not that difficult. Once you do it a few times it becomes second nature.
If your jacks are deployed along with the slides.
Bring in slides while still connected to shore power.
Crank engine. Give it time to air up. I usually go unplug shore power while this is going on.
Once you hear the relief valve discharge, you can retract jacks and let the air bags fill. I usually walk around the coach making sure the jacks are retracting. Once the air bags are filled the relief valve will discharge again.
Now you are ready to roll out.
Seems like a lot to do but it's really not. DW sits in the drivers seat and handles the ignition and jack control pad. I do the outside stuff.
