No, but that sounds like you may have a check valve malfunctioning. I don't understand why it would be affecting just those two, however. I'd call Lippert Customer Service. They are easy to work with and very helpful.

Curious if this is a six point hydraulic level up? Also are the slide outs hydraulic?

The selector solenoid valves for the jacks are separate from the slide outs..

There is one solenoid located on the passenger side Frt LG for those two jacks and the passenger and curbside leveling jacks each also have their own selector valve and separate wire going to each of those solenoids...

The odds of all 3 LG valves being stuck open seem unlikely.. however, if the system is new and someone manually over rode the selector valves for those hyd gear and didnít close the valves then the LG would want to extend when you started to extend the slides..
Assuming the slides are also hydraulic

I donít think I have ever been level enough while hooked to the pickup to feel good about having the slides out except once.. ? Good thing you WERE hooked up I guess!

While towing level on reasonably level ground there should be no problem putting the slides out. I have done that many times. As to why the landing gear is also moving I have no idea, but I suspect a faulty valve as previously stated. Fortunately my unit has aftermarket 6 point level up and it is totally separate from the slide system with its own pump/tank and lines etc.

Maybe too simple but with all slides closed and jacks up did you check the lave of hydraulic fluid? Maybe a bubble in the system because of low fluid. With all slides out you are using the maximum amount of fluid in the system. I had this happen once and the front jacks started to come down slowly almost like by gravity. i closed all slides and raised all jacks and filled the fluid to the max. When the unit was new I had had a fluid leak on my maiden voyage in one of the lines to the rear jack and warranty repair neglected to refill the fluid! Int only takes a relatively small amount of fluid to be low when everything is extended. As an aside they also didn't clean up the leaked fluid

RVs sit on dealers lot all the time with slides out without the unit being leveled.

Well there’s a good example to follow, no wonder we hear about brand new rigs needing the slides adjusted. LOL
