Question Leveling

This is probably a no brainer, but it has become a point of contention between the DW and I. She does the parking, hence is also in charge of getting the coach level. To do this, she dumps the air, then lowers the jacks. I feel, dumping the air first is not needed. After the coach has been leveled, dumping the air will not affect it, DW states it does.
Any comments/suggestions
Nothing major riding on this other than pride
Bob

I think the answer to your question was in your post!

>>She does the parking, hence is also in charge...

Dump the air first.

That results in greater jack range for those sites that are a bit too far off level.

It also may make the first step lower to the ground.

My new coach auto levels. The first thing it does is dump the air.

My auto-leveling dumps the air first, then lowers the jacks. The reason is as Dirk explained.

Leveling

My leveling process is:
1. Yes dear
2. Yes dear
3. You're right dear
4. Thanks dear

Works every time!

Like Dirk said, dump first and get those steps as close to the ground as possible. Then level.
