Stabilizer jacks

Quick question before I head out tomorrow. Is it best to extend your slide outs after leveling prior to deploy the stabilizer jacks?

Thank you in advance for your input.

Level and stabilize prior to putting out your slides.

I bring in my slides prior to undoing stabilizers and levelers.

Personally the stabilizers are the last thing I do.

That thread was real good thanks. I leveled here at home when we pulled in, but it felt kinda leaning towards the slide side when we are cleaning and getting it ready. Checked my level and it was half a bubble low on slide side...

Level the trailer 1/2 bubble high on slide side. Lower the stabilizers and deploy the slides. The weight of the slides on the suspension should bring it to level.

Mine is about the same. I put a thin board under that side.
