How do you check your level?

How do you check your level after operating the automatic leveling? I have a small level that I place on the floor in a few places, but this is not very accurate, since the floor is not entirely even. I would like to hear how you do it.

I check our level with a small torpedo level on the bed platform under the mattress

You could use stick-on levels like these: https://www.amazon.com/Hopkins-8525-...s%2C140&sr=8-2

You would need to make sure your motorhome was completely level, perhaps using a large level while in a parking lot. Then put one on the driver's side wall and one on the dash or cabinet above the dash. That way you can see both of them from the driver's seat.

I place a bull's eye level in the bottom of the freezer. Just don't leave it in there.

While my leveling is manual, I just walk from the front to the back, to the front and determine if it is level enough for me or needs some adjustment.

Set a glass of water on counter and eyeball it.

That is close enough!

I happened to find a small bubble type level in a hardware store. I mounted it on the small drawer in the front dash. I can pull it out while trying to level. It gets me close, I then check it with a small torpedo level on the kitchen counter and in the refrigerator. Works for me.

I look to see if the green lights on the leveling panel are lit. If it's all greens, that's close enough for me.

I don't obsess over it , although some people do .
If the shower or bath room door stays still I'm good with that .

I use what DMHolt said in post 3#. One over the door and one down lower by the door. If within one bubble mark, I call it good. I like the front end to be maybe an inch low for drainage. 1 inch out of 300 inches in length is close enuf for me.

Ray nailed it! If you can open the bathroom door to any position and have it stay there, you are pretty dog gone level. Also, ask the cook, whichever of you it is, whether the cooking oil runs to one edge of the pan (assuming your cooktop grill is true with the coach). Those are probably the two most annoying observations when the coach is not where you like it. Beyond that, don't sweat the small stuff!
