Good 3M tape will work.

Front-to-back level, front right side of frame; attached with 3M industrial tape since October 2012....(only problem is the white lines have faded, but can still determine level)


Side-to-side level, front right of frame; attached with 3M industrial tape since October 2012 (also lines are faded)


Side-to-side level, attached to the top of the roof assembly. Two holes, plenty of sealant added to each screw hold and screw, as well as dicor around the outer edge to keep it waterproof.


(Need to paint the front frame with some POR; appears to be a little rust.)

Never had long lasting luck with the tape and little people moving them. That's why I use screws.

I've had great luck with the industrial strength 3M stuff, I just make sure to clean it well. As for little people...not a problem around here.

Ive actually tweeked these levels to see how they return. they seem to rapidly return at first and then slow right at the end, taking quite a while to return fully. Of course Im here in nor cal. we have very hot summers and very strong tenacious little people...

Well, mine lasted two years in the Moab desert. Just don't use the tape that comes on the levels. That's stuff is usually worthless....

I really like this f5! I've been using a t-level on the tongue and has done a pretty good job so far. It's so small though and may not be the most accurate but appears to be good enough.
Your solution is better and will look into this

Cheers
Dan
