I have an app for my phone called Clinometer. I place my phone on the bumper and I can tell to the inch which side needs raising and how far.

So does this because I can't even see the rear bumper from the cab of the truck.

This google app is simply called "level." Works great just laying it on frame or floor.

This level is a nice one to have. I can tell from the drivers seat if the RV is level or how much to add to what side. Simple and quick.

"Bubble" is another good app similar to "level"

Now the bigger question is where do you use all the fancy levels? Frame, bumper, floor, counter,...... They are all different in every rig we have had, even the floor is different from itself at other spots. So we guesstimate between all of them until it 'feels' right and all the doors swing/shut correctly. Then zero set the auto level. Best option ever.

This particular park doesn't allow internal combustion engines on its lakes. This couple was traveling across the Canada sleeping in campgrounds when they weren't on a lake. Slept on the boat a total of 150 nights that year so far.

We had a 32' Regal cabin cruiser that was every bit as nice as our current 5er. The only downfall that I see with the boat on the trailer is the onboard air/heat is water cooled and, therefore, could not be used.

Truck more than capable for the trailer he had. And even with his trailer attached I wouldn't want to challenge him to a drag race....trust me.

If you want to level what counts, use a small torpedo level inside the freezer compartment of the fridge.

So simple that I never thought of that. Lol I will give that method a go.

I worry more about the floor being level. I can't stand walking around and 'feeling" a slight tilt. But thanks for the tip! 🍻

determining that the fridge is level with the floor/trailer body/bumper was the very first thing I did when we got our 25KS,.... so knowing that, leveling off the 8' bumper w/2' level and 1/4" blocks works best for me,..... one 1/4" block equals 1", so if two blocks shows level, then it takes two inches of height to level(of whatever you use, lego pads, boards, Andersen level, Popsicle sticks, bottle caps,..... just whatever you use, its going to take two inches height of it or them to level the low side),..... no guessing, no trial and error, works first time every time,...... I always like to use the K.I.S.S. method if at all possible...........
