08 Excursion Drops after leveling. Also Slide issue

After emptying airbags, I level the coach and all is fine - not perfect, but close to . By the next morning it is out of level - leaning to the left rear.
This is NOT hydraulic, but electric worm gear Lippert jacks.
I have wood ramps that I placed under the left rear and then re-leveled. That held. Any ideas?

Slide issue. When I pulled in my left slide it seemed to be slower than the norm. We got to the next location, set it out and it is slightly cocked. Meaning that the part at the front of the coach is tight, and the rear is not by about 1/2", yet when I measured on the outside, it seems to be out evenly.
We are full time and on our way to Escapees Boot Camp in Livingston, so if I need to get it repaired, any ideas of a shop to go to?

I have the same leveling system, owned since 2009. The only time I became out of level is when the levelers sink into the millings or whatever base. If I anticipate a problem I throw down 4 multi-layered blocks 12"x12". This has resolved my issues.

I don't believe the electric jacks can move once power is off.

I have not had any problems with my slides so can't help you there.

I place 16"x16"x1" plywood under all jacks (Learned the hard way first trip out)
We are parked on asphalt this time cement the last. I know that the jacks are screw drive and it makes no sense that they would drop like bad hydraulics, so I am at a loss.
More concerned about being level for the fridge, Only about half bubble out of level, but still...
Thanks for the reply

So, they have electric brakes located at the bottom of each jack, power will release them when control panel is turned on. Maybe (Have never experienced this) vibration while moving around coach allows jack to move. Just a guess, bad break?

The problem I have had with the magnetic brake is corrosion, this will lock the whole leg up and removal and cleanup is required to get it back running again.

I agree the screw should not move once powered off.
