Although a little on the pricey side for what it is, I was gifted a ReVo leveler and loved it. You level the trailer once and then set the ReVo. I used Anderson levelers, which worked well for the ReVo. You pull into your site, attach the ReVo and it tells you which side is low. You put the Andersons on the indicated side and slowly drive up until the big green arrows light up (you see them in your mirror). The Andersons work great for this because they are progressive vs. blocks, but IIRC, the ReVo can also tell you how many inches you need to raise the low side. Anyway, after side to side is done, chock and unhitch and then the ReVo tells you where to set your tongue jack.

As long as you're dead on with your level when you set the ReVo, it duplicates it perfectly every time.

We have a 2017 22BHM if it makes a difference.
Very carefully push the button marked " Auto-level "

Doesn't matter what you pick for the location to check for level, just don't check another spot after you think it's done or you'll go crazy. These things torque too much to check multiple spots.

I use the level on the rear bumper to get side to side before I unhook then the basement door opening to get front to back. Then I open the fridge and take out a beer. Done.

When we brought our trailer home the first time, I parked on a pat of our drive way that is reasonably level and leveled the trailer with a 4 foot level using the floor. Once I had the trailer level, I stuck on two calibrated levels on the back corner (You could use the front corner) of our V-nosed trailer. Now when I park in a spot, I can look at the side to side level and determine exactly how much to put under the wheel and which side it should be added. I move forward slightly, put down the blocks or boards and back up, chock the wheels and disconnect. Then it is a simple matter to crank the front up or down to get level in that direction.

These are the type of levels I stuck on the trailer.

X2 on the levels. Wasn't sure how they'd hold up on the metal sides buy they work so far

I put my wife in the trailer and tell her to walk from front to the rear and back again.... if she goes faster in one direction, I know to level it... if she goes to fast and hits a wall, I have to make dinner......I usually don't make dinner.....
I use a 3 foot level next to the door, check front to back and side to side. it stores nicely next to the door between the wall and our recliner of our 28RLS. After a while you can eyeball pretty close, then fine tune with a level.

I also leveled per the fridge & freezer, then stuck two levels on like pictured above with the inch measurements. Stuck them to the front left corner of the rig, front d side wall.

As mentioned above, back in and see what’s needed to level. Pull forward, place the estimated 2x10 boards needed down, back on and check if we’re good to go. Once set, chock, unhook, then level front/rear.

The first time I leveled my trailer using a standard carpenters level on the inside (focusing on getting the frig level). Once the trailer was level I applied stick on 2" levels to the outside of the trailer on the drivers side, one for left to right (this goes on the front of the trailer) and another for front to back (this goes on the side of the trailer near the front). Since I know the trailer is level the stick on levels will be placed on the trailer with the bubble in the center. Once that's done anytime I get to a campsite I use blocks to level side to side checking against the small level at the front of the trailer (I do this first) and then use the front jack to level front to back checking against the level on the side of the trailer.
