Info on leveling
 
I know this subject has been discussed before but where do you guys put a carpenter's bubble level (yes I'm old school) when you level your Fifth wheel

You can buy the little stick on bubble levels to put on each corner of the trailer on the outside so you can see outside. I tried that but they were more trouble then they were worth. I use a 2' level and throw it on the floor or top of the island depending on where I'm at while leveling - (they're both in the middle of the trailer). Others probably have other methods.

Bubble level should be (old school) placed in the freezer to assure the refer is level for optimal operation.

I have a large level mounted to my pinbox. I used a 6í carpenters level on the floor to calibrate the level. Now I just watch the big steel ball when Iím backing in for side to side and then use the landing gear for front to back.

Yeah you spoiled guys have auto level....

not spoiled, just willing to pay the reduced frustration tax.

X2 I also leveled the Cougar to the refrigerator. Then, added the small exterior levels to the front and drivers side. I can see the side to side level in the rearview mirror. Once that's good I use the auto level to finish it off. Start to finish less then 10 minutes.
Auto level instructions: start with a mostly level position. :lol:

Chuckster would a small level like a torpedo type work on any part of the refrigerator like a shelf or inside the freezer compartment only

I donít see why not. A torpedo,Level would have to be able to rotate for both front/back and side/side. I think you can still buy the small round bubble levels.

OK guys, how in the world do you put a level of any kind inside the fridge once you have packed it (PACKED IT) for a 4-5 month trip? No, I'm not taking stuff out and I've never had one ounce of trouble using the level on the floor in front of me while I'm outside or on the island......just thinking "outside the box":D

That’s why I have this:

“Set it” and forget it...I verify it’s still accurate every couple of years.
