I may be mistaking about having hydraulic jacks. We were told by the previous owner that the original electric ones had been replaced and we were fairly sure a technician had told us they were hydraulic, at one point. Can someone tell from these pictures? A guy at a local shop said that usually square jacks are electric ones. Is that true?

They are electric you see motor in second picture.
You need fully charged batteries or have shore line plugged for best operation.
All battery connections need to be good and clean and tight for connections what ever they used. The ground connections are just as important as the battery side.
Can you find any indication of who made them, the company name.

They are Power Gear. Would bad connections lead to the problem I'm having: Level for a few minutes, then not?

You should actually go out and see if that jack touches the ground when you level before you extend the slide. If it doesnt extend all the way to the ground, as you extend the slide the weight would cause that corner to go out of level as the weight shifts to that side.

As you can see at the end of this link pictures of plugs and wiring that with over time and exposure to wet roads and dirt requires some maintenance for sensors to control the jacks to stay down when your level.
I would find the correct PDF for your system and trouble shoot from there.

If electric jacks are not holding the motor brake is bad and not locking when power is removed from the controller. This has been a common issue on the early models and a recall was issued to change the rubber boot on them.
