I used the BAL Leveler on our Casita and liked it so much that when we got a Micro Lite 21DS I bought two for the dual axles, they worked ok, but when we replaced that with the Micro Lite 25KS the extra weight was too much strain on the cordless drill I used to raise the levelers,...... but it is a great product ........

How many inches will a BAL Leveler raise one side of a trailer?

Screw length allows 5-6 inches of vertical lift

I've used one since I got my first popup. It is the easiest way I know of to level a camper if you use a power drill. I've never run into a situation where it would not raise the low side tire enough to lever the camper. If you don't use a drill it is a bit of effort but gets done quickly.

Battery Disconnect Switch!!!!

Jack Wheel if you are storing in a garage so you can move it around

Fun lights!
---I got mine at Ikea, put velcro at the peak and and the bottom of both sides. I stick it before raising the roof. You can also fish it through the handles on the roof if needed.

Costco has some flat LED stick on type, but I didn't investigate yet if they would work outside and be able to stay permanently. Not sure they'd clear everything when it closes. Maybe around the base of the trailer though....might be fun.

We also reinforced the ledge the dinette sits on when using it for a bed as it fell though on us. My husband put a strip of wood down to the floor to gain full support. I think I posted the pics in another post, but will try to get them to my album.

Happy Camping!

We replaced our mattress with a Casper Queen. It weighs in around 83 pounds and I'd guess the factory mattress weighed around 20 pounds. After 5 nights it's been worth every pound.

The expandable poles are from Amazon and 4 foot shelves fit across thrm perfect. We put supports from a closet rod on the ends so the rods don't slip down.
