We are replacing the TT with a Solera 24R.

What I do (did) with the TT was to level the stove so that I could fry an egg in the middle of a pan. The side effect was that any water that got on the counter while washing dishes would flow backwards to the back splash and then flow to the left into the sink. If it had flowed to the right it would have dripped onto the dinette seat. If it had flowed forward it would have gone onto the floor.

The fridge was well within specification.

The bed was level.

Until I take delivery of our new Solera 24R I do not know what I will choose as my desired result.

btw, since March 2005 I have never fried an egg. Must be the OCD my doctor claims I have.

I use the small ones on the rear to tell me if the spot is level when I back in, use them before I unhook. If they are in the ballpark, I don't worry. I use the others after I unhook to give me my fore and aft. I have camped over thirty plus days this year at several different campsites. I am prepared if I need too make a minor adjustment.

We have the arched bubble level on the front and side. I usually can get it to within a half bubble side to side. Front to back of course is dead on with the tongue jack.

I have a small one also on my tongue jack that I use also. The one on my Iphone app is a good one, just have to keep going inside to check it. Last camping trip was the first time I had used it, was starting to say a few words because it kept telling me I needed to make some minor adjustments. Oh, well, have to wait a few months to check it out again.

Watched a person this summer trying to level his TT. End up using 1/4" ply under one side. My DW laughed when she saw him using the ply. She asked if the leveling of the TT was that precise. She said that she was never that fussy when she was camping on her own.

I also use a small level to check things inside. I downloaded a phone app that has a level on it, tells me which corner to raise, front or back. RV companion, free.
What app was that? Is it for IPhone or other smartphones?

I get pretty close with using a bull eye level without any problems but it would be helpful to know if adjustments are needed side to side.

Wow, that is very precise. I do have some boards that are about 1/2 inch but that is my limit. I would only do this if it was on asphalt or concrete though.

I use one called Bubble Level. It's a level only so I don't have to work through a bunch of menus

Both work fine.
