For my Greyhawk the book says level first then deploy slide -- reverse when leaving retract slide release levelers.

I agree level first. I'm thinking Jayco says let slides out first then level. I just don't agree with them.
Another question, do you build up your air and then let jacks up?

I added big Foot jacks to my 93 class A. Worked real well.
This class C came with HWH jacks.
Which I had on my last class A also.

I added the Quadra Bigfoot system to our 2013 Sunseeker 3100.

Both Forest River and Quadra say jacks then slide.

Makes sense that the slide would operate better if the unit is level. Less chance for something in the slide to bind, get messed up, etc.

I think the other point of view is the slide throws off the balance so level after the slide.

As for me, I'd rather be slightly unlevel but maintain the proper working order of the slide.

Majority mfg recommend to level first. After leveling you can adjust a little if needed. With power down jacks. One must be careful not to twist the MH frame.

Setup check off list!

There is a procedure that I follow and for good reasons. Park the coach and get out to determine if you are close enough to outlets and hookups. It really sucks if you park and get fully set up to discover that a cable or hose is a foot too short... For the love of your RV PLEASE make sure that you have room to extend your slides and awning before leveling a tree can hurt the finish on your coaches slide if extended into it. Once you have the RV where you want it put the jacks down. Level it first even if it is driving it onto some blocks. When you level your coach it will torque a little and can cause things to shift you don't want it shifting with the slides out.

Once it is level get your gear out that you will need and hook the coach up to power, water and sewer. Make sure you have all you need out of the storage beneath the slides because it isn't fun diving under a slide to get a hose out. Once you are all hooked up put the slides out and extend your awning and camp. Hope this helps.
