Leveling with slides out

Question, has anyone ever operated the hydraulic leveling jacks after the slides have been deployed? I need to adjust the leveling, it rained here last weekend, slightly off now, would like to adjust it it as we do not leave for another month....

Never tried it. Can't see a reason why it would matter though.

Just did it myself. With all the rain here in Okie land I usually level once a month or when I think about it.
Doesn't appear to cause a problem as I've been doing this since November.

I do it manually rather than let the level up system go through its cycle. In my unit the system drops the front all the way down before levelling the coach and I worry it could stress the slides somewhat but I may be wrong about that. Usually the unit only needs a slight adjustment front to back or side to side and I move the jacks until the green light in the middle shows.I also have level indicators on the back and side of the coach just to make sure things are level.

Not all systems drop the front down, might be specific to the hydraulic systems as it doesn't do it on my electric system. If it did drop the fronts I sure wouldn't do it.
