quick leveling question

got a pad built for trailer, down to the rock, the gravel, then fine gravel.
trailer not perfectly level on it, still need 1 lego block under tires on door side. Need to adjust the pad next spring. In the meantime, question is, how level should level be? I'm off maybe 1/3 on level. (lift level 1/3 inch for bubble to be centered)

If you can walk around inside your trailer and not feel like you've drained the beer keg, you are level enough.

I like to be really level. I use one of these round levels and so long as the bubble is inside the ring, I'm good enough.

The bubble does not have to be exactly perfectly in the middle.
I place it on the center of the range top, and then I double check it by placing it inside the freezer. The stove and the freezer are two spots that should be plumb to the chassis (or so I have always believed).

Like Boyd said, it really isn't critical. Besides feeling awkward or intoxicated, being too far off level will affect slide operation, and force the fridge to work a bit harder. A single lego needed is only a one inch variance, over an almost 8' wide span, slightly more than a 1% variance. I've been forced to camp for a week at a time worse than that!!
