Page 56 of the manual says to put the stabilisers down before unlatching the roof. I've not done it this way because on my Fleetwood/Coleman popup the order was raise roof then stabilize. I sometimes don't even put the stabilisers down at all just so there is less to do on mornings when we have an early departure.

I have noticed that the latches sometimes align a little better than other times. But I've never had a situation where I couldn't latch.

We use the Levelr orange Lego blocks for leveling left to right. Have a bubble level calibrated in inches just above the frame front cross piece. 1" = 1 Lego block. Check level before unhitching, place Legos, back on.

I follow the manual-Level left to right first, front to back, then put the stabilizers down. I'm hitch re level front to back & raise the roof sections. That way the roof section fit together squarely

We found that sometimes, when we stabilized first, the right-hand wall did not align with a "tab" in the roof - so, we erect the walls, then stabilize.
