Will use a checklist system which includes putting the levelers down, making water/electric connection and basement actives before deploying the slide outs.

For one or two sites like a Walmart, we don't use jacks.

For storage, you should put jacks down and then dump the air bags, that way you are taking the load off your tires. Storage with weight on you tires, may be worse for your tires than exposure to UV.

In that situation we only put out our bedroom slide which is our smallest slide.

Same here.

Monaco tells us to extend the slides first then put the jacks down because they want the slides out with full air in the bags

We've overnighted many times without leveling. Every time we were parked on a level parking lot though.
Ever see a new MH-any brand, on a dealers lot with jacks down? Every one has slides extended.
