howdy: if you are on un level ground I would bring slides in first, then jacks. But remember motor running for jacks. And then generator for all slides. We do a lot of dry camping so when I find a spot I like it pretty level from the word go. This makes it a lot easier. Hope this helps. There is a lot of good info on this sight. Pete

You should be as level as possible anytime operating the slides. They, like the fridge can be a little off but needs as much level as you can get to operate smoothly. I always use either shore power or gen, bring in slides and then retract all on jacks. Just my way but my unit is 2011 and has 25,000 on her and still going strong.

That is usually the procedure I follow. Don't get me started on the fridge. I can hardly wait for our next trip to FL and have to toss another $100 worth of food due to extreme temp swings in the fridge.

howdy: on your refer remember to use inside thermometer for accurate reading. the digital one on upper right outside is junk. you can buy these at camping world for about 5 bucks, they work. Pete

I agree about the digital. However the food was barely cool so we did not want to chance it. Our next step will be to install a fan on the inside.
