re OP's original question. When not camping I just park and walk away. Bags will eventually deflate, but I do not do it manually.

On my Monaco Knight, I have to go to manual mode, and then hold down the "air dump" button until I reach the desired height for the front step. Once I get there, press the "auto" button and it levels from there.

We have kick jacks so we drop the jacks and place a piece of 2x under each.

After a few days it squats doen on the jacks and tires only loaded hy axle weight so they are nice and round.

Great for storage.

When in use we just hit the level button and let it go.

Air leveling? The leveling logic assumes a start from ride height. If you dump first you may be limiting its ability to level. I use it even when storing. There will be an aux air compressor to add air as it leaks out. That system needs exercise too. If hydraulic be careful about leaving jacks extended. They should be lubricated regularly if extended.

Understood the leveling logic assumes a start from ride height but wondering if there is any problem using the auto level after dumping air? I only do this when on an almost level site but welcome any thoughts on this as it seems to work without any issues. We like having the step closer to the ground for easy access and auto level from ride height seems to always leave it too high.

We dump the air when parking to put the door entry step close to the ground, thus not requiring a stepstool.

Several folks have reported using the air level as you mention with good results. We are currently parked in a spot that needs the rear bags full down and the front bags full up. My one piece windshield will shift if I hit a rear bump stop, so that would be my concern. I carry a small step to help if we have a high step.
