To make sure your RV is level prior to attaching the levels, I suggest a carpenter's level. Lay it across the floor or frame rails. Once you have it level, slap these on:
RV Levels, Set of 2 - Rv Designer Collection E401 - Levels - Camping World

No need to spend more. The pair we stuck on our TT have stayed on for over 6 years. The liquid in one did turn from green to clear a couple of years ago. It still works just fine.

RV Levels, Set of 2 - Rv Designer Collection E401 - Levels - Camping World

I have a 5th wheel so I use one of the big mounted levels on the pin box and found the best ones for front to back are the ones above. They are the most accurate tried the ones with the balls-don't work and the little ones are not accurate. I used a 4 foot carpenters level on the floor inside to initally get the camper level before installing

We use a carpenters level on back bumper, steps and inside on floor and counter. All's good if you don't feel like your sleeping head down hill or feel like your gonna roll off the bed.

Ditto. The self-slamming bathroom door is also a clue that the TT may not be so level.

I gave up on using a level. Could never find a good one. Everyone I used so far was broken. Damn things leak and air gets in it.

Thats pretty much how I back up, too.

I put stick on levels on the top of the tongue, near the tongue jack. One oriented front to back, and the other left to right.

I tried sticking them on the side of the tongue, but could never get them perfectly level. They get me close without having to climb in and out 20 times to check a level inside, well close enough I only need to go in and out 3 or 4 times.

I use those also. They're much better then the ones that don't have the inch graduated markings.

I used a round bull eye level inside the trailer checking different countertops. As long as the ball is ipretty much inside the small circle it's good enough for me.

You can always try the iphone plumb bob app for infinite leveling angles...
