Jacks under the slideout are NOT recommended by the manufacturers and WILL void any slideout warranty issues.
Modern slideouts are designed not to need supporting jacks.

I have read the "dont put jacks under a slide" more than a few times on these forums and many others as well so I never bought them for our rig. I do as "rbq" is my process upon arrival at site once I disconnect tow vehicle...
I leave the slides and bunks all in tow mode (fully retracted) until I have rig level and all four stabilizer scissor jacks extended. When I do this I leave the road side (drivers side/slide and bed side) just a smidge prouder so i'm not completely razor/laser eyed level. With that setup in place I double check all the 4 corner stabilizers to make sure they are snug to the pads on the ground and when the slide extends and the beds are dropped, the left-right level bubble always ends up pretty much dead on.

No matter what you choose, the level doesn't have to be perfect just reasonably close, or at least close enough that the drink/beer glass won't spill when set on the table!

Congrats on your new home away from home! We narrowed our choice down to the 233S and the 23SS. We decided on the 23SS as we were concerned over most of the weight being on one side of the camper. Also decided the table was on the wrong side of the camper as wanted to see our own site when sitting there, instead of the neighbors. Did a similar thing first time out. Forgot to put down the table. Now have a wide scratch across the front of the cabinets where it "walked" itself over and rubbed. Adds characture.

Yes! Indeed, prioritized leveling. So nice to see...
