Have been using/storing TC’s on jacks for only twenty years. Have never had any issue. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but this is how the Mfrs and dealers store campers also.

You should be reasonably level (within ~2’) before deploying slide. I understand Lance is finicky about this. If door opens/closes you should be fine.

Your replay has no value without saying what size/weight camper you have.
There is going to be different story with 2000 lb TC having 15 gallons fresh water tank and 4500 lb TC with 35 gallons of fresh water pushing the floor down.

For those with reading comprehension beyond kindergarten, See camper in my sig.
The majority of TC’s are built to used on/off the truck.
We carry 55 gals total H2O. Typically leave home full as we don’t know where we will camp. That is almost 500lbs of water. Load/unload, leave it on jacks, leave it on truck, doesn’t matter. Only thing I pay attention to is try to get level with ~ 2”. Sometimes that doesn’t happen no matter how much shoveling I do.
Most important-get out and use your TC, you’ll figure it out as you go. Life is short.
