Ditto on the stick on levels. Our shake down trip was to a KOA, had a paved, reasonably level site. Brought a 4' level with me, leveled the trailer and applied the stick on levels on the front corner. I know it's reasonably level because the fridge doors don't swing open/shut, and the bathroom door stays open. Glad I bought the inexpensive ones, as the sun has already "bleached" the color out of the fluid in both of them. :lightning:

A 4' level used on the floor inside seems to be the best way to make sure you are level.

I have a bubble level mounted on the 5th wheel hitch for side to side when I back in the site. Then I have a stick on level for front to back. I purchased Intelljacks for the landing gear for the hook and unhook and level works good for me. I had Intelljacks on other unit and liked it. Hope this helps.

At first I brought along a 2’ (??) level that was just long enough to fit in the door opening. If you have in imperfections in the floor, aka a bubble under the linoleum, dirt, soft spot, etc, that can be magnified with a shorter level. Now that I have the bubble on the tongue, and it has proven to work, I have no reason to bring the bigger level, I do carry a small torpedo level (just in case).

I have a question for you guys.....

I notice a lot of the power jacks have a bubble level on them. Are these reliable as far as leveling your TT is concerned?

I had my eyes calibrated a while back so don't need a level anymore . Seriously though I just use this stick on ones. The peel and stick tape does give out after a while though and they'll shift. I took the old tape off and reapplied them with some clear silicone and some painters tape until the silicone dried. Not gonna move now.
