I like the stick-ons. What you do is get the trailer relatively close, then finish the job by adjusting the level a bit. Does an amazing job of keeping the wife off my back. If she looks at it and it is the least bit off, she asks me to re-level it. Once in a while, it will be necessary to actually re-adjust the stick-ons to true level position, only when she notices the discrepancy by the level of liquid in her wine glass.

3' level on the entrance step and then on the back bumper.

I use the "Bubble Level" app on my phone. Just place it on the floor inside the entrance door.

To avoid starting any trip that involves a discussion with my wife about leveling a trailer, I purchased a revo leveler. Some may gasp at the expense but starting off a trip without stress on both sides is worth every penny.

We got the RV LEVEL from Made By Joe (http://www.madebyjoe.net). I wanted this over the levelmate pro since the unit is externally powered (12v or usb depending on model) and no batteries to replace (and the rv level is cheaper).

I also don't have an iPhone which gave me this option....

So far, its worked great.

We use the Hopkins 09715 Hitch Level, mounted to the tongue of our TT.



Note the screws and the hole in the plastic cover. The leveler can be calibrated in a few steps:
  1. Level the trailer with a separate reliable method
  2. Rotate the cover to one of the screws and tighten or loosen as needed until the bubble is level
  3. Repeat step 2 for the other screw
The bubble in the front shows the front-to-back level. The one in the back is for side-to-side and has a nice feature... rotate the cover until the bubble shows level and read the number next to the pointer at the front; it will tell you how many inches out of level the low side is. In the photo above, it's 1/2" low on the road side.

The level comes with a protective cover.



We've been using one since our pop up days and really like it. On this TT I mounted it on a piece of hardwood that attaches to the tongue with rare earth magnets.










At Amazon.com (USD 22.96)

At Amazon.ca (CAD 42.50)

I use Camper Leveler, free app by eland. Works good and tells me how high to raise what side, but I need to get out of the truck to see it.
I now see an app called Remote Level that allows you to use an old cell in the camper and see it in the truck. Been out since March and costs $1.99. I think I'll try it.

I am testing the Remote Level app now. Don't waste your time or money.

I have a tablet sitting on my desk sending leveling data to my phone also on my desk. If am to believe the app I should raise the left side of my desk top 14.3" and the rear 21.0". In the time it took me to type this it said to raise the left side 22.3" and the rear 106.7". I haven't moved the desk.

Who knows what it would say if the tablet was outside in the trailer.

Thanks, I think I'll save the money and buy a coffee instead.

I've had no problems with the LevelMate system. Very accurate and speeds up the CG setup process.

Whew, I didn't realize leveling was so complicated. Makes me think I must be doing it wrong.

I've always thought the idea was to get it as level side to side without having to get out of the tv to check several times. KISS principle.

Here's what I came up with. I can see this perfectly in the tailgate camera. Back up on blocks until it indicates level. Used it a couple of times and my camera died. Only 10 years old too. Just don't make things that last anymore. LOL. Back to getting in and out until I decide what to do about the camera.

I had one of those bubble types that lasted, I swear, about 10 minutes!



Now I just have a small carpenters square. We're not too OCD on being perfectly level!!
