And, is there any risk of damaging my slides if I add stabilizers and my main stabilizers relax after the fact?
Yes, your trailer will lean somewhat, when the slides are extended. You will read where a lot of people (moi included), counteract this by placing a small board or linx leveler blocks underneath the tires on the slide-out side when backing the trailer into the spot. I usually raise my slide-out slide a half-inch higher than the opposite side. Then when you extend the slides, it is usually level.
I'm sure each trailer is a little different, and depends on the weight of the slides, including how many there are. You may have to experiment a little to get yours figured out.
