Where do you level your trailer from?

I have been using a six inch bubble level on the stove top as a guide for when my trailer is level, I figured that the cooking surface was very important to keep level. I have now found out the hard way that the tub/shower lets water flow out onto the floor and out the door so I am nose down when stove top is level. Where do you level your trailer from?

I put a level on the small ledge at the bottom of the Fiberglas panel. I find that if that is level I'm good to go. I open the bathroom door and watch to see if it moves when it is open. If the door stays still I'm fine.

I have a small level screwed to the side of the tt near the door and another on the front of the tt above the propane tank. The front level I can see from the cab of the truck so I know if I have enough leveling block or if I need adjustment, the side level is adjusted by raising or lowering the front of the tt. Seems to work well. Got the levels at Wally for just a few dollars. happy camping!

I use a torpedo level on the floor. I also check the fridge. Try to find a happy medium.

From the floor just inside the door....., but leave the TT just a "tad" tongue high so that water drains off the roof to the rear of the TT.

I use a 3ft level off the floor. I also bring mine up a tad high in the front and a tad high on right to keep rain water away from slde out seals.

The first time I used a long levelon the TT floor. once I got the TT level I attached two smaller level units to the trailer, one on the front and one on the side, now all I have to do is check those each time I park it.
