Has anyone used the LevelMatePro

I did a search here on the forums and came up dry, has anyone ever used the Level Mate Pro wireless Bluetooth 4.0?

I was actually going to build one until I came across this device that claims to adjust itself, Apps available for both Android and Apple.

LevelMatePRO - Wireless Vehicle Leveling System

Just used my LevelMatePro for the first time with Anderson Levelers and a ProPride. I really like it for the time savings and lack of arguments with the DW as to whether we are level enough side to side, LOL.

The hitch height save and recall function saves having to get out of the TV for a "final" stinger height adjustment. Just keep backing up into the main unit.

Setup is very simple and use is intuitive. No PhD required. A great product, already one of my favourites and I have no regrets getting it.

Thanks eow. I received my LevelMatePro and though I have not used it to level the unit just yet, I can say the install and setup was a snap. I look forward to backing in and leveling without having DW inside reporting level info from the fridge. I have the Andersen levelers and have yet to use them thus far, we have been fortunate enough to have level side to side pads.

Nice, detailed installation and review notes here (with video) on Love Your RV. Ray always does a really nice job explaining new products.

I go all homemade. I built my own set of Anderson levelers and wrote my own Android app for remote leveling over Bluetooth using two Android devices. It works great. So much quicker.

I felt the price was a bit high especially for something I could do myself.

Update for the LevelMatePro:

I can appreciate nightcrawlers desire to build one from scratch as I contemplated it myself. Time being a constraint to build one myself, I decided to find one already built.

Anyway, as I backed in and was about to do my final level for this trip, I opened my Level Mate Pro app and it would not connect to the Level Mate Pro device. After going through all the obvious things (bluetooth, wifi, other like apps running, etc.), I wound up leveling with the level app on my phone. I forgot to bring the level from home. Luckily the pad was already level side to side and the front to back is a snap anyway. After everything was all setup, I decided to check the Level Mate pro unit mounted in the trailer. I removed the battery, replaced the battery, tried to connect and still same thing..... no connection. Even reset my phone and tried again to no avail, it was not going to connect. This was just purchased this in July 2016 so the battery should have lasted longer, or so I thought. I had the DW pick up a fresh pack of those lithium 2032 button cell batteries while she was out. I popped one one of those fresh batteries in and viola.... the app detected it and all my previous data was there. All in all, I still have yet to use it to level the trailer.

I did contact the manufacturer of the product to make record of the issue and the service response was lightning fast. I didn't want a replacement until I was satisfied nothing would get this device to work which they offered. I'm glad it was only the battery, however, my thinking is; "what caused the battery to drain?, was the battery sitting on a shelf for too long?", hopefully the latter, we will see in a few weeks when we go out again. I will keep you all updated as to how this all works out.

I will offer one piece of advice to anyone who purchases this device, replace the battery with a fresh one from a top brand like energizer with a long expiration date immediately. These batteries are cheap for a 5 pack and are found in a variety of devices such as watches, key-less entry remotes, lighting remotes, and the list goes on.. so a 5 pack is not all unrealistic or unnecessary. I really hope by sharing my experience, someone can avoid some of these minor inconveniences.


Happy Camping Everyone!

Just want to toss a +1 to this thing. I just love that I pull in, head back/forth on the spot looking for a bit of a more level area from the phone while in the truck. Then you get an inch measurement vs any sort of angle so you know exactly how far you have to go to level.

It's pricey, but darn it's handy and speeds up leveling once at camp.
