leveling my 30 ft Camper

Do you stay hooked up while leveling and.do you put slides out before unhooking?

I get the camper level side to side using lego blocks or boards, unhook, get it level front to back, drop the rear stabs then put the slides out. Just my method...

I have a 5er but I stay hooked up until I get side to side level. I would do the same if Ihad a TT. Then the jacks go down at the front and I unhook. Front to back leveling then takes place. Then the rear jacks go down. After the 5er is level, the slides go out.

Same as what they said:
My leveling process

Just be aware, and you've given no indication otherwise, but your stabilizers aren't levelers!

Don't forget to chock the wheels. Don't forget to chock the wheels. Don't forget to chock the wheels. Am I repeating myself. I wonder why?
