Leveling the TT

Where does everyone mount the levels they use? And which levels are everyone using? I have a 12 inch level which I used to level front to back by placing on the tongue support and used the water bottle test on the floor for side to side....LOL. Was thinking about using a bullseye level but where do you mount it? I was also thinking about putting the small sticky backed levels on the front right corners that way you can see then from the front of the TT when at the electric tongue jack.

We leveled the TT so the fridge was level inside the freezer, then stuck "Hoppy" style levels to the front center, and sides at the front. If you have a large TT, I've seen levels on the rear center, and rear side, also. The ones with graduation lines help with how much the TT has to go up side to side. Tons of choices on the market.

I just use an 18 inch level and lay it across the back bumper to level side to side and then lay it across the threshold of the door to level front to back. That's level enough for me.

I carry a 4' level and lay it across the tongue for side to side and on the steps for back to front.

Yes, use these stick on and your done. One in the rear for your DW to look at when she's helping you back up and one on the front when you have no spotter and the 3rd one on the side. Each mark means 1 inch of adjustment needed.
Each Lego gives you 1" of lift and I also carry 2 -1/2" boards for a finer adjustment.

I keep a torpedo level in the driver's side storage area.




Put it on the bumper or tongue as needed.
