Rear Stablizers

I have a Salem Hemisphere and the rear stablizers are not working as I would expect. Since this is our 1st RV I'm not certain about how they should operate. Anyway, when I put them down they do not go down together all the time. Sometimes one starts down and moves 2-3 inches before the other starts. Of course we are not always on level ground and sometimes one goes down further than the other ( I do try to block to the same height for each). How are these things suppose to work??? When I retract them, 1 almost always get one that's up before the other; is this normal?
Thanks!

Yes that is normal for the electric stabilizers as they are self leveling but don't try to level with them as they are not levelers and should only brought down till snug against the ground. i also check mine daily as they tend to loosen up with movement.

totally normal and working like it is supposed to. my heritage glen does the exact same thing. just hold the button and let them work. I put chunks of 6x6 treated under mine because they have more support when not fully extended.
