Unfortunately I have run cross it from time to time in WDH instructions, and it can be misleading and/or confusing depending on how the level vehicle inference is used in concert with adjusting chain links (via WD bars).
states: "Determine if the towing vehicle is level. If necessary, adjust the chains links."..... "Repeat the above steps until the towing vehicle is level." (referring to chain adjustment).

states: "Vehicle should settle evenly, within 1/2". Re-measure the front and rear bumper reference points. If the front has settled much more than the rear, increase the number of chain links between the lift bracket and the spring bar." Although it doesn't use the exact term "level vehicle", one could walk away with the implication.

states: "By adjusting the chain links up or down, the desired levelness of the car and trailer will be gained. Remeasure front and back of towing vehicle and have both settle the same amount or up to an inch lower in back by adjusting chain on Spring Bars." Implying that chain adjustment be used to level the trailer was interesting here as well.

As we all know the objective of the WDH is to return the integrity of the TV's front suspension to it's unhitched condition, and/or per Vehicle Owners Manual specifications when using a WDH.
