Lightbulb Levelers, Always seems to be needed on driver side

Whenever I need to use levelers on my TT, It always seems to be needed on the driver's side.

What's up with that?

how are you checking for level? Do you have a level gauge mounted on trailer? Maybe it's not correct

I leveled the TT and I leveled very carefully prior to adding the outside levels on.

It seems to me that it is fairly common.

I greatly prefer needing to raise the driver's side vs. the passenger side. I give a campground negative marks in my mental notes about a place if the passenger side is the low side.

Do you have a slide on the driver side?

Turn around and go in the other way.

Seriously though, I suspect you're dealing with that folly of coincidence. Point in case: Picked up some Andersen Levelers last year and spent a couple of hrs trimming them up to fit the narrow spacing of our TT's tires. Now we can get rid of all those boards we've been packing to make things level. We're all set, or so I thought. Every one of the dozen or so sites we've been to since getting the levelers tuned up has been... perfectly level. Go figure!

Wow! They work so good that they level the site before you even get there.

No slides. I do however outweigh DW x 2. I offset that by putting all of the beer on her side.
