On my '75, with the Power Level system, I run down the highway with the valves set to the "travel" position.  I generally put them in "raise" whenever
I travel on surface streets at lower than freeway speeds.  This accomplishes two things; it decreases the caster on the front end, making steering
easier, and it keeps the rear end from dragging when going in and out of driveways.

On an Electrolevel equipped coach, I would do the same thing only with the switches instead of the rotary valves.
