Once they reach the ground I tap the button a couple times (rear first) and watch them lift the trailer a tiny bit.

If i just hold the button, my fuse blows before any damage is done (ask how I know)

Trailer still moves a bit. I'm thinking an x-chock or jacks near the tires are in my future.

Only for stabilizing

The Lippert Stabilizing jacks are ONLY for stabilizing the camper. the instruction manual tells you to only run the motor for no more than two seconds after both sides make contact with the ground.

The instructions also say they will be damaged if you try and lift the back end with them.

Level the camper buy whatever method you choose and then put them down to stabilize.
