Slide Out / Stabilizer Sequence

We picked up our 31BHSC earlier in the week and it's our first TT with slide outs. What's the correct sequence for putting the slides out?

Is it level, stabilizers, slides or level, slides, stabilizers?

I’ve always done, level, stabilizers, slides.

I don’t think it matters on a TT or FW.

Perfect, but I might add in case(and assuming non boondocking) plug up first.

My 2018 Freedom Express 281 RLDS specifically states on the electric panel to be sure that the stabilizers are down before opening the slideout. Thus: Level, Stabilize and then open the slideout,

I admit, I have got all set up before I realized the power post was a couple feet further away than I thought!

I misspoke when I said power panel. I meant the panel in the camper where the switch is located to open the slide-out and awning, not the campground power supply post.

Sorry about that.

I would say that it depends on how many slides you have and on what sider they are.
