For what it's worth, our 2000 mid-door jacks were not powerful enough to lift any of our wheels off the ground. In fact, we've had a hard time leveling a lot places we've camped (we don't go to all that many 'groomed' RV parks.)

I say 'were not' as I had the jacks upgraded to the next size last year to help us level. I've always carried a couple sets of the stackable blocks to use under the wheels and don't intend to lift the wheels off the ground wherever I am.

Oh, and I'm in the 'jacks-down-first-slide-out-second' camp and it's worked well for us for the thirteen years we've had our Alpine.

Thanks everyone, This helps me be safe and doing the right thing. I talked to a guy about air bags. The first thing he said be safe and he sent me more info on being safe. I had a friend with and older Coach, He pulled in a camp ground and a old fellow watch him go through his deal and when he was done. He told him all things he did wrong. The old fellow was right on everything he said. Sometimes when you pull in it makes you wonder what's this dang guy want. I always ask them, you need a drink? My wife thinks, all dang he's found a friend.
Again Thanks everyone
