Welcome to the forum. I have developed this method to set the front jacks. After locating the trailer on the campsite and leveling it side to side with your wheel blocks, I drop both legs to the ground. Previously I have numbered the snap pin holes with a black marker starting with one at the bottom. I then look at the last number hole visible at the top. One side may be 9 and the other 10, meaning the ground is not level where the jacks touch the ground. Then I determine if the front of the trailer will need to be lowered or raised after unhitching to level it front to back. If it needs to be dropped the legs need to be lifted enough to allow the trailer to drop in the front to level. In the example above I would raise one to hole position 4 and the other to hole position 5 and run the jacks to the ground to unhitch and lower them to level. If the front needs to be raised then you only need to set them at 8 and 9 to get enough of lift.
I never retract the legs completely, in fact I usually let the upper tubes extended so the ground pad is about 12inches off the ground when the lower extension tube is pushed completely up into the assembly. Just make sure the ground pads are slightly higher then the rear axle on your tow vehicle.
Hope this helps.
