I was told with my first Alpine and then with this one that you must level the coach with the jacks before extending the slides. Was just walking past a relatively new Country Coach here in the park and from the side noticed that his jacks were not down. And from the rear I could see the coach leaning towards the 2 extended streetside slides.
Is there a different "rule" for CC's? I have never even tried to extend the slides without putting down the jacks.

Some coach's use air leveling. Early Alpine's look like that was standard and hydraulic leveling was optional.

IIRC early ACoaches req'd jacks down to extend slides, had some kind of lockout.
Most CC rigs come only w/air leveling unless jacks were added as an option.

Maybe that's why CC is talking bankruptcy- owners are fed up w/wobbly air leveling & are trading in for Alpines?
