First of all clean the jacks very thoroughly. If they are really dirty, tap gently with a hammer to release sand and dirt, hose thoroughly, repeat. Lubricate every part of the jack with lots of wd40. Check that the part of the jack that extends down has been fully released and pushed up into the upper portion of the jack. Then grasp the jack with both hands and tug it down. While the jack is pulled down, swing it up under the trailer until it clicks into place.

Trigano cheverny tent

Untie the cover and pull it back. Then unfold the camper trailer either sideways or backwards. Anchor with pegs, add poles and ropes as necessary. If you have specific models in mind, there is often a youtube video on the model that you're working with.

Bent tent trailer rails for pop out beds, how do we fix

Try bending rails back into shape or make new (stronger) ones. I have shared your experience. Set up trailer in rain, jumped into bed, and supports fell out! Also set up tent in the dark in the rain after one quick lesson and no instructions.

We have a Rockwood Signature ultralite travel trailer 8315bss and we would like to know why it is that we cant level the back of the trailer with the power jacks it seems like the left side is down and...

There is a certain amount of flex in the frame, but it is also possible you using the levels wrong. Are they built in, or are you attaching them as needed?
I would get a 4' level and put it in the middle of the floor.
Built in levels bubbles rarely work well because they are not long enough.
Level front to back first, and then side to side.
