They can be mounted anywhere that is most convenient for you to use. Screw on is the best way. The stick-on tend to shift when they are exposed to hot, cold, wet, dry. The larger, slightly curved ones seem to work the best.

Meticulously level the trailer then mount the levels.

Hey joe.... On your other thread, I posted a yuo-tube video that shows how to make sure your trailer is level using the freezer on the fridge.

If you didn't see it, here it is:
Very informative

In it they recommend which one to use and to avoid.

The reason is, the fridge needs to be as level as possible to cool right.

I have the curved, stick on type that is in the video.....

I have a two dimensional bubble level that I mounted to the HTT tongue. I leveled the HTT really carefully and then placed a good dollop of silicone on the top of the tongue in front of the jack. I like the location, I can see exactly what is going on as we disconnect.

Here is a picture of a similar unit as what I have. Sorry I do not have a picture of mine.

Here's a picture of mine installed on the front curb side corner.
They are the curved ones that tell you approximately how much you have to raise one side. 1", 2" etc
It's kind of nice to know you need 1 or 2 Lynx Leveler blocks.
I put a dab of plumbers putty on the back side to seal the screw. You can also put a dab of putty or caulk on the head of the screw.

Best regards,
Doug

I find the Wally mart stick on ones work fine for me. Level the rig front to back and side to side using a 4' level. Schmuck the levels on the front drivers side corner of your TT...that way you can hop out of the cab and check the levels yourself and/or watch your helper in the mirror. I used to have them on the front passenger side corner and then I got tired of running around my rig. The only reason they are on the front passenger corner is so the owner can look at them every time they go inside the trailer.
