Slideout dinette support

While I was lying on the floor looking at my fuses and breakers, I glanced at the dinette where it meets the sidewall. I noticed that when I pushed in the bottom, it moved outward to contact the sidewall - meaning that it was tilting in slightly.

Q1: Is this normal? It wasn't a lot of movement, but some.

Q2: Does anyone use jacks or supports under their dinette on a popup?

Flagstaff HW25S-C if that makes a difference.

I've always been told it's a bad idea to put any kind of support under your slide out. If the trailer settles at all, it could put the slide out of alignment.

A slight downward angle is normal and do not put jacks underneath to support. When we bought our new one, I asked about why it would do that and the technician showing us how to use the camper said that is how they are designed and they are all like that. Even confirmed by showing us several others on the lot. I asked about putting a support underneath and he said to not do that because the shifting of the camper and such will mess up the slide and the track. Its all good.
