The instruction manual on our 1997 Monaco Dynasty with three point levelers is: slides out at full ride height, dump air bags, deploy levelers. When breaking camp it's air up to full ride height, retract levelers, retract slides. Been doing it this way for 17 years with no issues.

So we just brought home our new MH and my perspective has changed a bit. The new one the MBS chassis requires the engine to be running to put the slides out, but requires the engine to be off to put down the jacks. This literally forces me to put the slides out first - something I have never done on any RV I have owned. granted this is a C but wanted to note that the process really is unique to the unit.

An interesting question asked often on this and other forums. My rig is on a Freightliner XC chassis. I always dump my air first as I was told I could damage my airbags leveling aired up, then deploy the slides. Reverse, slides in, jacks up, air up.
