I have the stick-on Hoppy graduated bubble levels. It indicates how many inches low/high the trailer is sitting, and from that I know how many lynx blocks to use to get the sids-to-side level. Then check the bathroom door and call it good.

I use a $2 plastic level from Home Depot. I set it in the middle of the kitchen floor and check both directions. I don't care if the fridge is 100% level, it's good for a few degrees of wiggle room. It's more important to me that round things don't keep rolling off the countertops and that doors stay open(or closed), and that runoff from the AC isn't dripping where I walk ll of the time.

I let the Mrs. tell me when she thinks it's level. Then we're all happy and I get to work on that Blanton's I snuck along for the ride!

I guess it's silly to ask at this stage of the game, but how crucial is it being level? I ask because I'm reading all of these discussion threads, and it looks as if most of you guys/gals actually use a level of some sort when setting up camp. At our delivery walk-through with the dealer, he told us emphatically that as long as it was comfortable when we lying down--as if to take a nap--that everything would work fine and we wouldn't have any problems. He actually told us that using a level wasn't necessary, just to get it close enough to be comfortable. Any thoughts on this? Happy Camping!!

Sometimes RV dealers aren't the best place to get RV advise. Just like sometimes truck dealers aren't the best place to get truck advise

I would ask him "close enough to what"? Without a level you can't have a clue where level is. You will know how important it is when your doors will not stay open or water stands in one corner of the shower.

It does not take much more time to disconnect when level than it does to ignore it.

It doesn't need to be perfect, but you want to get pretty close. I have a small level that I USD to set on the kitchen floor right inside the door, but since downloading the bubble level app on my Droid that's about all I use.

I use a long level just inside the door but I do use an app on the outside when parking
