Leveler

Hello all ..
The leveler in the Dolphin works fine.
I just don't understand what the device is with two level bubbles and how it works.
I do not have any documentation for it.
I don't know what you call it and can't find anything on it.
The plastic cover rotates. There are two bubbles and some numbers in there.
If someone has a short explanation or can point me to a post or link on the web, it would be appreciated.
Thanks
Bob

Bob, they are for front to back leveling and side to side leveling.

Use a carpenter level to get the coach as level as you want both side to side and front to back using your jack system.You can place the level on the ceiling or floor or counter.
Then adjust the rotating bubble device to center the bubble levels front to back and side to side. Tighten any lock down screws on the bubble device. Once it is calibrated that way, you can refer to it while setting your jacks up next time.

First calibrate the bubble device as M&EM mentioned in post #5. There are numbers on the bottom of the round rotating plastic cover. The arrow at the bottom should be set to zero. When you are ready to level, look at the two bubbles. Turn the rotating cover until the left to right bubble indicates level. The number that the arrow is pointing to is the number of inches (approximately) the coach is out of level sideways. If I'm over 3 inches out of level sideways I use ramps to get my coach closer to level before using the jacks. This helps reduce stress on the coach frame and is my preference in leveling. Once I'm two inches or less out of level sideways, I then use the jacks to level. Turn the dial back to zero and level front to back first. Other persons will have different ideas I'm sure.
