Only had one problem with leveling the camper. Had to use my cars scissors jack to jack up the camper and put blocks under the low side. After I let it down, I had it too high. Had to jack it up again and remove one block. Took me over an hour. That convinced me to buy the Lynx leveling system, including the chock and caps so I don't have to go through that ordeal again.
Made one mistake. I opened the bed with the coffee pot plugged in and nearly destroyed the plug. That mattress is very close to the wall socket and care must be taken to make sure the socket is clear before lifting up the bed. Now I know! We live and learn!
Had a great time. 5 days of nice weather and 5 days of not so nice weather, but it sure felt good to be camping again!
I found a power strip with a flat plug which I can plug into the outlet and not interfere with the bed. Then the pot (or anything else) plugs into the strip.
I like the Bal leveler for its ease of operation. I use it even on level ground to chock a wheel which helps keep the trailer from moving.
