After re-reading it doesn't really say, therefore the point goes to the other manual which is more specific.

It does specifically say to start the engine and build air before retracting the levelers.

Page 6....

Called FR today regarding levelers vs slides......

Quote: "There is no right or wrong way. Yes, if you're seriously not level it's probably harder on the slides. But anything close either way it's fine."

When I stated that my port slides seem to move easier when on the bags they said...."Go with what works for you".

My personal note there..... If you're THAT far out of level that the slides are having trouble the levelers aren't going to help you and you'll get an "excessive slope" error. Time to get the 2x10's out.

I am satisfied with what I know and am disengaging from this subject for now.

So did you figure out how to bypass the slide and Awning lockouts?

No not yet. Just got home today after 1130 miles in 30 hours.....

Clean up then there is that "work" thing.....

And then there is a list..... starting with my water heater mod as "she" has stated the current situation is unsat. (I agree).

Then there is the balancing of the steer wheels.....Getting the Sat antenna to cooperate......TPMS.....

So somewhere down the list there are some other goofy mods, including the slide lockout bypass......

procedure is different from when we owned our Thor MH. Back then we had to say a prayer before extending or retracting the slide! (5 slide failures during 18 months of ownership!) A LOT of praying back then............
Glad we now own a Berkshire!! Slide structure and quality is MUCH BETTER in our Berkshire!
