I've found that I must dump before I try to level, especially if the ground is sloped. The leveling system will extend the jack on the highest corner until it touches the ground and then put the others down to try to bring the coach level. If my suspension is up there may not be enough travel to get fully level. In such cases retracting the levelers, dumping the suspension, and trying again will do better.

Dump air. Then level.

I always dump first, because what would happen if something happened to the levellers & they wouldn't retract when you're ready to leave? Never happened & probably never will, but with all else being equal, I go for the safer alternative!

The instructions for my old PT say to deploy the jacks first, then dump the suspension. I think it's because the fronts usually need a little extra height to swing down.

Yep the front kick down needs to be deployed first on some Birds.
Just look out for sloped non level sites, and never expose those shiney jacks cylinders for extended long stays, Moisture is not good, spray with tranny fluid or exercise & recycle.
