Stick on level

Looking for a good stick on level. One that can tell me how many inches to raise up to level .Also the best way to make sure TT is perfectly level before I apply them? Also where the best place to put them. I realize This is by no means a hi- teck ? But I'am sure you guys will have a lot better ideas then I would Thanks any input would be great

Best way is to check using a hand held level. I used the bubble in the stick-on level guide but got a false reading. Later when I moved my TT to a new spot I found out that the first spot was not as level as I thought.

If you have an android smart phone there are a couple of level apps for them.

Put a hand held level on the floor of your TT to get it perfectly level. We bought our stick on levels at Wally world. But instead of just sticking them on, we used screws to attach them. Way too easy for them to fall off or get bumped and then they're not level anymore.

I've found leveling off the floor is not very reliable, moving the level to different places with in the trailer it will show's different readings all the time. I go off the frame up front and the rear bumper, then check the counter close to the fridge because ultimately it's the fridge that needs to be level for proper function.

I also used a level on the floor then stuck them on the street side front corner. That way you can easily see them when you hop out of your truck and while working the tongue jack.

LOL! Too funny!

I've had the sticky levels on our previous TT, and DW now uses the hand-held level inside on the floor and fridge, while I adjust up or down. Then, I go inside and lay down on the bed. If I don't feel like I'm rolling downhill when I turn over, then it's close enough for me.

I have found the cheap stick on levels get me darn near enough to be good enough. ITheyt also give the DW something to reference, regardless of how true to level they are.
