If I am on hard surface for more than a night I typically use hyd jacks. If the ground is soft, or if only stopped for the night in a parking lot, truckstop, rest area...etc I use air.

I have both air and jacks also...kind of. My jacks stopped working after I had a hose replaced two seasons ago. We got used to using the air and have done so for the past 2 seasons. I have to get the pump replaced eventually but air is working fine in the meantime. You also have less to worry about frame flex and twist when you level with air vs. jacks. Most coaches with this option are heavy enough that you don't get movement in either mode.
