If you are aware of this potential issue, having the wheels off the ground should NOT be an issue as long as you ensure the shackles don't flip.
They'll flip back on their own, with a very loud bang, you wouldn't need to remove them. You can also flip them by just raising to change a flat, so not uncommon.
We discovered with ours that once unhitched & hit auto it leveled from that nose position, yes it dropped the nose then started leveling, but if once unhitched if we lowered the front 6-8" then started the auto it tended to level at a lower position. You'll lose the hitch memory, but it never was real accurate on ours any way.
