It is my understanding that the refer needs to be level for proper operation.

Wow, you sure got a lot of advice!! Just a bit of common sense. (I think) If you are parked close to level, with no twist to the frame, (i.e. one corner is not higher or lower than the other three) I think you can safely put your slide in or out. Leveling will not align the frame any different than sitting on the tires level, so I can't see the harm.

Go enjoy your new RV and the memories you build with your family.

What kind of my do you have? If Monaco, you put th slides out before level the coach. Air is up, slides out, lower coach and then use the jacks.

She's still new and probably feels like she is drinking from a firehouse with all the questions and answers.

The first RV is intimidating enough when things work, in her case she's had a few struggles, making the whole process much worse.

I assume finishing her profile is probably low on the priority list.

Fortunately several of the forum members have jumped in to help, wouldn't expect any less of these guys and gals.

Too bad none of us live closer to her.

Leveling jacks are not a high maintainance system that causes constant trouble for the great majority of RV's that have them. Whatever is causing your problems with yours cannot be a drastic issue and a qualified RV repair facility should be able to fix them so they work like everyone elses do. They should be made to work.
