Personally I don't think the slides are as delicate as some dealers would try to scare you about! We have, with our RW & other rvs, always extended the slides while stopping at rest areas for lunch without leveling & so far in 10 years of fulltiming have had NO slide issues.

Here's some food for thought:
When you level your unit, the old way with blocks under the tires and jacks for and aft or by using the Level-up system. You're putting pressure on the frame, should be equal, but who knows for sure.
But if you're just in a Rest Area sitting on just the wheels and king pin, not to much extra pressure on the frame.
So which is better for moving the slides??
Now the disclaimer would be if you were on a side hill with an excess lean to one side, then it might cause an issue.

Does yours have the power cord on a reel....ours does but only has retract switch position have to pull out cord manually....spent 4 hours at dealer to day going over everything..the tech was great....they had it hooked up and on line everything worked ran slide in and out 5 cycles floor vents were not an issue...power cord reel kinda surprised me but no biggy...also had big direct tv sat installed on roof it even far so good...guess only dislike is lights that are controlled by incommand system....prefer old way with switches....

Our 2018 34RL has the same power reel for the shore power line with a two way toggle switch. Press up the line powers in and down the reel reverses and out it goes. Maybe the switch on your unit is not functioning correctly.

on my "16", I only have a one way switch.. I manually pull out the cable, and use the motor to pull it back in.

Seems like a power out switch could make a "reel" mess, pardon the pun
