Actually it depends on what you're RV manufacturer says. Newmar says level first, others say extend slides first.
So, read the owners manual, if you don't have one call the manufacturer.

I never open mine unless the MH is level.

Why take the chance? I admit I have done this on "level" concrete but I always worried. I would think sliding one box into another box is hard enough without trying to do it when one is not square.

I guess nobody reads the OP. This is pertaining to a H R which is built by Monaco. Manufacture and owners manual and senior tech ALL say slides first other manufactures are different. Winnebago ot Thor or etc. is not a Monaco so opinion does not even figure into the answer to this question. Give Monaco a call and the true answer is there.

Rusty,

OP did not mention a manufacturer and has never commented since his/her initial post. I looked at their profile and they have a Itasca Meridian (Winnebago) however I do agree with you that the OP should consult his manual or call the manufacturer.

Thanks!
Jack

My mistake and I do appoligize if I came off wrong...not my intention at all.
Just trying to stress the point that common sense would dictate jacks first, but Major damage could occure if done wrong and especially to Monaco built coaches.
This being told to me by Monaco tech, not a salesman or such.
Well meant intentions and did not mean to offend.
Rusty
