With the Clinometer app I mentioned earlier, it will tell me how many degrees my bumper is tilted. Simple math tells me that every 0.6 degrees of tilt requires one inch under the tire to make level.

Back in 2008, we were cruising around Fort Wilderness in the golf cart checking out all the different set-ups. At Disneyworld, you see everything from Rockstar motorhomes to tents.

One day, we were riding around and saw a family in their houseboat. Not in the lake. In their houseboat on its trailer backed into a spot in the 400 loop. It was one of those houseboats on pontoons. But that was their travel trailer for that week at the Fort.

Run what you brung.

That's true Fella10. I guess I should have said, "the freezer is where I leveled to find level for my 5th wheel. Then I mounted the levels on the trailer to show level. Hope this makes it a little clearer. I don't remove all the frozen stuff every time I set up. I found that when my fridge is level the rest of the stuff is too.

Why? For all we know the owner is either taking the picture or is just off camera. The well fed happy dog with a collar is looking at something, maybe the owner? Good grief.....

Without more than the picture I agree, owner could have been cleaning up after it.
