Raising one side of the Redwood

Ok, I know several people on this forum have done this so I could use some guidance. I have raised the Redwood using the leveling legs to change a tire but at the time it was hitched to the tow vehicle. To raise it I went to manual mode and extended one side of the rear legs. If I want to raise it when it is unhitched and leveled, how do I do it since the front legs are also extended?

You do it the same way. However the front jack on that side will likely come off the ground. You need to then extend that front to the ground. If you try and only re lower the rear it will come down hard on the front one.
You will have to re level then.

I wasn't aware that you could operate the front jacks left and right individually. For some reason I'm thinking the two front jacks work at the same time. So, once I extend the front jack to equal the rear jacks do you then just hit the auto-level to re-level?

They don't but the raised one will go down until they equalize then both will continue.

Once unhitched the front legs operate with right/left from the manual mode.

Sorry hit post too quick!
Go to manual & use right/left or extend/retract & front legs work with the rears. You can also raise/lower front to rear the same way.

I was watching a gentleman getting ready leave our campground this morning. He has a Mobile Suite 5er with hydraulic slides and leveling system similar to ours. As he was raising the nose, a hose blew out and down came the nose and rear jacks. Fortunately he found it was a hose that had been rubbing under the bedroom slide for some time and finally yielded. A new custom made hose from an auto parts store and back on the road again. I do not see where any of my hoses are near any of the slides, but you can bet I checked.
