Yes it is. The problem with just using the jacks is some air stays in the cylinder. I was told to extend the jacks all the way, on one side, in manual mode. Then, continue to deadhead the pump to compress the air in the cylinder (about 10 seconds). Then bring the jacks all the way up and deadhead the pump again. Check the tank for air/foam in the hydraulic fluid. No air = ok. Air in fluid = do it again AFTER PUMP COOLS DOWN. (This causes the fluid to heat up and the motor to work hard.) You'll need the tv to bleed the front landing jacks. Do NOT pick up the tv with the coach landing jacks.
