Since you have posted this in a Cedar Creek thread I will try to answer you on how my wife and I do this does this .
We first position the trailer where we want it. We will next throw down some 2X8-8" long boards with 2-4X4-8" long wood blocks under the front legs. This is to keep the front legs as short as possible. More stability this way and less movement when walking around in the trailer.
The tail gate is drop and the umbilical cord (power wire to trailer) is unplugged. The safety cable is unhitched also, wheel chocks are placed behind front and rear tires on both sides. The front legs are than extend to take the load off of the hitch. The hitch jaws are opened and the legs are extended a little more. I will than pull the truck out from under the king pin and clearing the nose of the trailer.
We than will place three or four stackable "Lego" type pads under the other four legs and hit auto level. More and more campgrounds are requiring blocks or pads under the legs of trailers now.
To hook-up the reverse is done. We just retract the rear legs first and put away the "Lego" style blocks for backing under the trailer.
I would also fill out your signature as to what style and make of trailer you have as this will help us in the future answering your questions.
