Full length slide leveling issues

2020 Thor Freedom Elite 24FE. It has a full slide out on drivers side and I can never keep it level once the slide is full out. My local RV buds suggest a slide jack, frame jacks and even putting a jack under the driver rear bumper. It has electric stabilizers but it maxes out before level so heads are below feet unless I park it way up hill or on a few leveling bricks. This canít be good for the rear suspension too. Wondering what sort of suggestions the team here might have? Iím afraid to Jack the bump out in any way. This is a sprinter based class C 25í cutaway so MB didnít leave me much to work with.

We have the 24F on an E450 chassis. We have learned to "level" the chassis about half a bubble off (driver side high). Then extend your slide, followed by the stabilizers. We did trial and error for a period. Now we have the Levelmate Pro which tells us how to "level" the chassis and once slide is extended the true level is right on.

Thanks gents! I have compensated in a similar manner with some success. I do have the level pro gadget mounted but not fully operational yet. I was hoping to get something electronic that I could mount. Keep it simple I suspect is the best move.

If you have Equalizer System stabilizers there is a control module you can adjust each side differently. I searched for two days to find mine under the false floor below the sink area. Have mind adjusted at 9 on drivers side and 4 on passengers side. You can find instructions on their website. I deploy the stabilizers before extending the slide. Wish I had hydraulic jacks like our 38' DP had , but you deal with what you have.
Another thing that seemed to help some is installing Sumo Springs at all four corners. Stopped most of the rocking when parked.
Hope this helps some.
