Putting jacks under a slide is not recommended. If the RV settles any the jack can stress the slide or poke a hole in the bottom of it. If the slide is not setting correctly then it needs to be repaired or adjusted.

X 3, I had a tire go flat once while camping and didnít notice it until the day we left. A jack under the slide would have seriously damaged the rig. My manual is clear about thisóno additional support is required.
