I think any of us would be hard pressed to find all stations on our units be the same state of level ... RV's are just not made that precise. Pick a spot that attracts the most of your attention and constantly level to it ... forget about the rest. Like mentioned earlier ... many people level to their refrigerators.

X2 MtnGuy & lswartz,
If you are running your fridge on LP for it to work at 100% the freezer needs to be dead level front to back and side to side if it isn't your ice cream will not stay frozen and you will use more gas. We use a 4' level at the main entry door in front of the fridge on the floor..making sure this part of the TT is level both ways....the rest will take care of itself...water will drain to the black tank and the BT will drain to the sewer. We've always had frozen ice cream and cold beer. This works for us.

Merry Christmas
Happy Trails

HaHa! A 4 foot level is just a bit too big for my refrigerator. I use a much smaller one on the refrigerator itself for levelling as the floor is not perfectly level. I then found out that my shower base is level with the refrigerator & much easier to check. I never had melted ice cream or god forbid warm beer.

Before I got my levelers, I used a plastic cup with ridges, put water in to one of the ridges and sat in on the counter. When it was even all the way around, good enough. Used it to check the levelers, perfect!

You need a 4' fridge to hide the Christmas goodies....
Merry Christmas

As other has stated do not use the stabilizing jacks, they will bend
that will cost you dollars $$$ and make you mad right in your back
pocket.

I have wooden ramps I built, I can use them for fixing a tire or
leveling the 5th wheel with little effort

Also you can buy little plastic or even metal levels about 5" or 6"
long, we have one over the stove cover, one on each side of out
5th wheel and at each end of the 5'er.

Just note. The fridge has to be level period. No matter what you run on it needs to be level for the chemical reaction to work properly. That is from the who manufactures them.
