Lowering front landing gear all the way

Good morning,

This weekend I want to swap out 2 quarts of the hydraulic fluid to reduce stiction pops at night. My question is this: can I raise the front landing gear all the way up with out being hooked to my truck, effectively lowering the front all the way down? Never did that on any of my fifth wheels. I have to cycle the new fluid through the system.

Yes, but your front end will go down. The back end won't balance it to keep it up.

It won't hurt anything to let the front down all the way. The angle of the dangle by the coach will make it more difficult to access the hydraulic reservoir through the garage door.
