Andersen 3620 rapid Jack + LevelmatePro here.

I can level our TT from the driver's seat in a matter of seconds.

That's my set up as well. I have the TT at home right now and just got it leveled side to side, front to back and will install the Level Mate Pro in the front cargo compartment today.

I decided to level the TT with the slide out (we have just one on the driver's side) before setting up the Level Mate Pro on my iPhone.

I'll report back when I get it installed and set up.

If it's wet the easiest solution may be to dig holes to drop one side a few inches rather than block the other side up.

I lucked out. The surface in front of our house is perfectly level side to side so no leveling required. I had never checked it before because we only bring it home to charge batteries and load up. I put my 6 foot carpenter's level on both sides and it was dead on. (I also now know that the walls are parallel to each other. Probably built on a Wednesday. Ha.)

Well, wouldn't you know it...the campsite was level side-to-side and I didn't need my new Andersen levelers but my Level Mate Pro told me instantly that the TT was level. It couldn't be easier. I highly recommend it.

A question for those of you who have the Level Mate Pro. Did you set it for level with the slide out(s) out? That's how I set mine but I'm rethinking it because I'm not about to move (eg, level) the TT with the slide out. It appears to be about 1/2 inch off when the slide is in. How did you set up yours?

I originally set mine up with the slide in.

I'm getting ready to do it again as soon as my upgraded 2nd Generation LMPro arrives this week. I plan to set it up with the slide in as well.

How much out of level is it with the slide out?

I haven't really checked but I doubt much since our slide is so small. I'll check when I set up the new one.

i set mine up with the slide in and level. We have a deep slide so I make sure the stabilizers on that side are firm.

I think I'm going to reset mine to level with slide in.

Easy Peasy!!

No, but I have a similar app on my phone called RV leveler. Works really good.

Sure looks like that second Andersen lift gets in the way of the first tire. What I mean is it's sort of laying against the first tire, before you begin to move forward.

Am I wrong? Seems like it would work better on a "wide track" axle system.

The level from 1/2" to 4 ".

I agree, Atlee. Our TT is wide track so we have no problem.

We just had to go 3 courses high on Linx Levelers last weekend, it's a pain building up the ramp, but the real inconvenience is the BIG first step to get in the trailer since there was a slight washout at the edge of the asphalt pad. Anyone else ever encounter this? We just dealt with the big step, but would like to be prepared in the future to have another step to put down. Was thinking of making a step with adjustable feet for uneven terrain.

Levelers

Anderson levelers and Levelmate pro. I have our rig leveled from the drivers seat in minutes.

Yep. We used our new Andersen levelers and Level Mate Pro for the first time a few weeks ago and it was as easy as everyone says. I highly recommend the combination.
