If your not level you are going to put strain on the system, do it enough times and you will have a very big bill. Don't quite understand that he said it less strain then being level. Try it, then you will see which way you want to do it. Thats a lot of hanging weight even for a level up system. When the slides are in your just leveling a box, with the slides open your leveling a box with the flaps open. If anything would twist your frame it would be leveling with them extended.

I've always leveled then put the slides out. I've never had a hydraulic leveling system though

My Monaco said to extend the main slide and level. But it made sense to me being it use air bags and jacks to level. My primetime it says to level before extending the slides, and I do just that.
