Slide Deployment

I've got a 2005 DS with 2 slides. I'm a little confused on proper slide deployment procedure after reading the procedure for full width slide models i.e. deploy slides first then air down and level. I've always aired down, leveled and then deployed the slides. Anyone have the proper procedure for a 2 slide unit?

I have added this to that thread your talking about in how to level your coach manually if you do not have a level pad to use AUTO LEVEL.
You should be OK with only two slides for manual leveling.
You will not twist chassis by the procedure.
If you need a Brochure or Owners Guide just say the word or you can follow
these instructions and do yourself.

Hi GScherrer,
For your coach, you are following the correct procedure. Air down, level the coach and then deploy the slides.

COM_NET is closed but I will get you manual info when their is access.
Mean while in my signature below are links to many others with info for your Newmar.

Here is your Brochure and Owners Guide for your coach.
If you follow directions in this link you can look up other items for your coach.
Enjoy the forum and safe travels.

There is some conflict between what Newmar is now telling owners versus what the manuals say.
The manual says to ...park, level with your jacks, then deploy slides.

I've recently heard, and called Newmar Customer Service and specifically asked, and they said that you could do either. Either park, deploy slides then lower jacks, or do what the manual says.

I think if you deploy slides before lowering your jacks (auto leveling), you have to ensure you are almost level to begin with by using pads under your wheels to achieve a level starting point. In my mind, at this point, the only things the jacks are doing is stabilizing the coach, as you are already level.

I find this a bit confusing and am a bit surprised at Newmar for not being clear on this issue.

There seems to be a lot of confusion on the new procedure, so lets break it down like this:


1: Do you have a full wall slide? This is the big changer, so do you have a full wall slide?

If the answer is yes; then the new procedure is for you. Deploy slide then level. If you level first; go outside and look at all the gaps around the full wall slide. If there is space all around the slide to main body, then deploy slides. If not you need to move the coach and re-level till there is a gap all the way around.

If the answer is no: Continue as you always have done. The change does not apply to you.

LOL! instead of calling them AUTO leveling jacks they should be called stabilizing jacks because you need a level ground to use them on AUTO mode.

PDR, The proper procedure is to level first then deploy slides, that way there is no twisting of room.

I did it that way with my '04 and am doing it that way with my '14

The manufacturer of the slide and the rv said to do it that way.

Tom-NC you own a WINNEBAGO do not confuse your slide operation with the Newmars operation, you do it your way as Winnebago instructed you and you will stay out of trouble.

It doesn't help to make joke's about moving these FWS's the cost of the coach's they are on can cause much aggravation and money if the correct procedures are not followed.

As to AUTO LEVEL you do not need a FWS to get into trouble, if your fool enough not to lower jacks manually, as the system will tell you are out of level.

For and only for Newmar owners this is the proper way of leveling your coach.
