OP originally mentioned having to open his slides. Hence, a couple of us mentioned we didn't have to and he was responding.

No, I'm not kidding, and nobody's answered. What does unhitching have to do with opening slides? If I get lucky maybe the poster will actually answer.

Yes I was responding the the previous poster. And the reason I mentioned about opening slides, especially a large slide. Is it May require the jacks extended to keep level and not put pressure on the frame.

I ain't got a dog in this fight, but I assume the trailer needs to be pretty level to work slide without damage. I know most parking lots have some slope, or they would be called pools. Leveling front/back while hooked up likely a challenge.

I am sure Barney has something he is thinking about but I would also like to know what unhooking has to do with operating the slides?????

Tires are even off the ground. MC trailer is still hooked up.

Hey Cummins12V98, nice paint job on your coach. I ordered my coach with full body paint. Anything as purdy as a fifth wheel needs to show out! I was looking at Alliance and decided against it because they didn’t offer it. I understand they do now. Thanks for joining in.

Yah Cummins12V98, Why make us look bad parking like that? Thanks for pointing that out Jerry, kind of mean spirited of him! [emoticon]
