I use a 4ft and a 12" level. The long level goes on the frame under the entry door (midway front to back) and the 12" I use inside the trailer for side-to-side.

I check at the tongue and rear bumper as well. I'm a little OCD when it comes to being level.

Yeah, $1,000 to replace the cooling unit along with a week's worth of spoiled food can make one paranoid that way.

I started out using a small torpedo on the floor just inside the door. Verified that the fridge is level if the floor is level. Then later I verified that the floor and the frame up front match, so now I just use the torpedo on the frame. I have the stick-on ones that I bought when I first bought my trailer, they're still in the original packaging. One of these days when I have the trailer perfectly level, I'll go out and stick them on someplace... been saying that for a year and a half now...

We don’t trust the bumper or the front frame I have found them both to be off from the floor. I guess it could be the floor or the frame that's wrong but we like the floor level.

I made sure they're level with one another.

btw.. the floor should be level with the frame.

Torpedo level for us. Get the fridge as close to level as possible, and as a bonus my eggs won't run to one side of the pan.

Sometime when you can "get your trailer level" then go around to several places and see how close they are to level. You'll find that level is a relative term because most places won't match the others.

Pick a spot and go with it.

I use a smart level just inside the door.
The smart level is a tool leftover from an old job I had( I wouldn't spend the $ for one for this purpose).
It's basically a sensitive digital 2' level.
It comes in real handy when I'm setting up alone due to an audible beep when it hits level. I can easily hear it from the tongue jack and from the stabilizers.

I like the idea of leveling from the refrigerator. I'll try it next trip!

I also have the stick on levels in their packaging. I'll have to set them next time I'm perfectly level.

Thanks for the tips!
