Make sure you allow enough adjustability (sp?) for the front landing gear. If you don't run them down a few inches before dropping the legs, the system will force itself to raise the rear to match for level. I've done this since with better results.
Do you think I could/should do it now?

It won't help unless you hook back up to your TV and get the landing gear corrected

Only if you're prone to nose bleeds from the high altitude!

When the tires come off the ground make sure where the spring attaches to the end of the equalizer (that triangle between the tires) has not flipped. If it has you need to get it corrected or you will break up the rubber in the equalizer. For more info visit the Dexter Axle video on their web site titled E-Z Flex suspension to see how it should look in the correct position.

This morning while getting ready to leave the campground I had fun, had problems getting the manual function to work on the front jacks. Ended up doing a retract all then a panic stop once they were below my hitch height and then extended them to the hook up height. I tried to lower rears a little then the fronts a little to get tires back on the ground using the manual setting maybe that's what caused it. I didn't want to lower the rears all the way because of the tires being off the ground.

Got a few questions for any of you 325res owners. First I plan to install a Progressive Industries Hardwired EMS-LCHW50 Surge Guard has anyone done this and if so where did you place it? Second our 325res did not come with slideout covers and it is getting to be pain cleaning the tops of the slides before closing them each time we go camping. Has anyone had them added and what was the cost?

We had three toppers and three Maxx Air II vent covers added by dealer at a cost of $2800 - worth every penny - it was all done before we took delivery
