leveling

We have 04 Allegro 31 ft motorhome with 2 slides, a bedroom slide and slide on driver side that contains dinette, stove and sink area. When I park unit and check level we are ok and I put down the jacks and check level again (ok), but my wife notice that when we run out the front slide, the stove isn't level anymore. It appear that the stuff in the pan run to the back just like the slide drops. I this right? or do I need to adjust for this?

It would be helpful to know the make and model of your motorhome. Most motorhomes are leveled, then the slides extended but this is not always the case. Certainly the slide should not be slanted when extended, so you either have a leveling issue or your slide needs an adjustment.

If your system is hydraulic , you may be down a little fluid causing the jacks to loosen their hold. Just a guess. I have electric jacks .

Hi jastinjr,
My kitchen slide does the same thing. It becomes a bit out of level when extended. Is it just irritating or serious enough one needs to have it fixed? For me, the out of level condition changes each time the slide is extended. It is not bad enough for me to have the slide readjusted just so it can become out of level again after traveling over hill and dale with the coach.

I'd leave it the way it is unless it is a danger or it is so bad that the slide is not sealed to the outside.

I don't know anything about the Allegro, but it seems to me that any MH should have the slides out BEFORE leveling. Those slides are heavy and I don't see how they would not change the leveling. JMHO

It's actually the other way in reality. Most mfg advise jacks down first. Your mfg ( Monaco ) is one that doesn't. There are a few others as well.

The slide may slope for a reason so water will run off the slide, if no awning out and not into coach on to floor.

My Winnebago manual states the coach should be level before the slide is moved. (HWH hyd slide and jacks_one system)
