Welcome. I had to adjust mine using a bubble level since my Droid Razr doesn't have a flat back.

OK, I'll be the smart A.. here. Park, unhook, pull TV forward out of the way, Hit the Auto Level button and presto jacks come down and it levels it's self. No blocks, no fuss, just the initial cost to have the system installed.

It is the first thing I do. I pull on the sight look at my level and use the proper amount of blocks to level up then unhook and level front to back.

X2. But we loved the Lynx Levelers to do the job. We call them our LEGO blocks. Still have 2 sets even though we have the BIGFOOT

I like the bubble level that is attached to the front of the pin box. Mine measures both side to side and front to back. The Left to right level is important because of the refrigatior.

R to L is the first thing to be corrected. While we are still hooked up we check the level to see if we need to lay a block or two down to have her sitting level. So we back her in to the exact spot we want the trailer, then ck for r/l level, if needed, pull forward just enough to lay blocks needed, then back her up and ck she is right. Then we put in chocks and unhook


X2...all the way down the line. :-) Amazing how little out of whack you can notice, and be annoyed by. :-)

I don't level the camper, I level the refer! Put the bubble level in the freezer unit while still connected. level the refer and you can live with the trailer.

My parents always did that on their old trailers. Apparently being level was fairly critical back then. They are not critical now, so there is no reason to do that, but I know old habits die hard. If it works for ya, great.

I've known others who leveled with water in a cast iron skillet on the range.

Once I get nausiated because the trailer is listing to one side or the other, I don't care if the beer is cold anymore

I do the same, but have found that if the site is too unlevel side to side, I still have to use blocks under the wheels. The autolevel system torques the frame just enough to get it level that my garage side door won't close correctly. It binds and the dead bolt won't lock. It also lifts the wheels off the ground. I don't like it torquing it for long periods of time.
