Works every time and definitely close enough for government work. I have camped in some really unlevel sites and have never been off enough that refrigerator would not work.

The only problem I have with sticky tape is that once you stick it you can't move it. The level I used has slots for the screws so you still have some adjustment to fine tune if needed. My trailer already has about 600 screws thru the trim, wall connections and roof attachments that the manufacturer put in. I figure 2 more won't really cause that much of a problem.

I had been thinking about doing this also, but like some said i usually bring a 3/4 ft leveler. Someone tell me if this is wrong, i put trailer on the pad i throw the level on the floor and get side to side close as possible (with slide in) then do front to back, put jack down then recheck, then put slide out, am i doing it wrong?

When I towed our pop up I carried a 3' Stanley level with us all the time, funny thing about it I didnt realize it had a magnetic strip until the third excursion. Since then it's been on everytrip and I attach it to the trailer frame for side to side and front to back and have always been dead on. When I do check for side to side I compensate for the slide being extended as well.

Side to side then front to back. I use a 2 ft level in the middle of the outside wall and my Anderson wheel chocks. I double checked all different ways to make sure it was leveled out before making this my short cut. As most all stated you aren't building a house just need to have the fridge the most leveled for it to work. I also do not compensate for the slide out Jayco builds the newer units so the weight isn't much of a factor once extended.

I use an iPad placed in the center of the RV. There are level apps that will tell you how many degrees you are off by to at least one significant figure. For an 8 foot wide trailer, each degree you are off by is about 0.84 inches. I can get it nearly perfect the first attempt.
