I placed one on the front passenger side near the edge to level left/right and one on the other side of the edge of the trailer to level front/rear. They work well for me. I've gotten to where I can use them to tell me how many Lynx levelers to use.
That's what I have and really like them. They work really well when trying to figure how many pads to put under the tires to level the TT.

Have you tried putting a fan in the refrigerator to help with circulation?

I did the same when we got our MH. I put a 12" torpedo level in the bottom of the fridge and fiddled with the levelling jacks until it was spot-on in both axes. I then attached two stick-on bubble levels, set to show level in each axis, near the driver's seat, where the leveller controls are.

Our leveller system has an auto function, but it really gets carried away and raises the rig to a ridiculous height. My procedure, with DW's help, is to lower the jacks until the pads just touch the ground. I then raise each pair as little as needed to get the rig level with the minimum of jack extension.

If I can't achieve level within my confort zone, I ask for another site or get a refund and go elsewhere. It has only happend once in three seasons and we got a better site.

Good point, Frank. Its imperative to get it spot on before attaching the bubble levels. I also used your method and spent a lot of time getting the camper level the first time before I stuck on those Hoppy levels. I used a 4' level, checking several places in the camper until just right. Then attached the Hoppys.

yes...the actual cooling coils are located directly in the freezer...the fridge portion is cooled by a type of "heatsink" fin that get cold from the freezer coils. using a fan on them will help the process.

almost all refrigerators work off of one compressor with cooling coils on the freezer side, and then a fan or other method to transfer cold to the fridge side. Although we did jut get a new fridge for the house that is a dual compressor cooling setup....i cant tell much difference.....they said it would keep the freezer from getting contaminated with smells from the fridge (onion etc)...i suppose it
