4. I go outside and plug in shore power and visually check my power monitor box to insure proper volts etc. I also check to see if slides will hit anything when they go out.
5. I go back inside and start engine.
6. I turn on my leveller system and hit auto and no one is moving inside the motorhome.
7. When level I shut off engine and leveller cvontrol panel.
8. I go back and take out one slide at a time. I may even wait a few seconds between so not to over heat the pump motor.
9. After all slide are out I verify my frig is on AC power.
10. I go back outside and hookup water, sewer lines, Cable TV etc.
11. MY DW now takes care of all the arrangements inside and I stay outside.

When leaving I just reverse my steps.

thanks, thats how we will do it!

Delete # 11

Change # 8 I go back outside and DW takes out one slide at a time. While I watch from the outside, she may even wait a few seconds between so not to over heat the pump motor.

In that very generic motorhome manual that FR supplies there is a paragraph that tells you to level then run slides out. There is a concern about twisting the chassis/frame.

However, I believe some diesel pusher manuals are the opposite. Go figure!
