I have stick on spirit levels by the controller on the 5er.

If I am staying for a while I will use a carpenters level on the counter by the stove. Like to have the stove level. Rest will be close.

Do you go outside to hold your finger in the wind or do you hold it out of the window? Do you wait for your finger to dry?

You only have to lay down in bed with your head down lower than your feet once to realize the most important level is the bed. I always look at the fridge, too, although not really sure if this is still a big deal or not.

Any bubble level will work, I use a short carpenter's level with the opening on the sides and the top. A quick check of the kitchen counter for front-to-back, then the nightstand next to the bed for passenger-to-driver side, to ensure the head of the bed is slightly up.

That is what works for us, YMMV.

Have a level bubble by the control pad but I really use a 6 inch level I throw up on the dash.

18" level placed on the kitchen counter, not quite midship but close enough. Front raised first, then the sides (rear levelers). I'm good at it, after some practice. Level is stashed until needed next time.

I open my bathroom door, if it stays still I know it's level. They say the best place to put a level is in the refrigerator on the bottom shelf. Don't know who they are but it seems to work for me.

I used a carpenter's level on the kitchen counter to get it level then glued a bulls eye level with a gob of silicone beside the Allison shifter so it was dead center and now it's just a case of using the bulls eye level and viola! Done! (then you can stick your finger in you drink and put it in your mouth to make sure lol)

If I can pee straight in the middle of the toilet bowl without having to compensate, it's about as level as it's gonna get.

My rig has a bubble level right above my leveler controls. Sure you haven't got one somewhere? If you have levelers you're bound to have a bubble level one would think.

I bought these: RV Levels, Set of 2 - RV Designer E401 - Levels - Camping World

I made sure I was perfectly level using several of the previous methods and then placed one on the dash below the speedometer and the other on the driver's side wall above the leveling control panel.

Now I can level perfectly every time from the driver's seat.

I put one of those self adhesive levels just under the drivers window (front to back level) and one up on top of the instrument panel where its out of the way, but I can see it (side to side level)

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

With this coach the auto level works great. So I auto level. Generally OK. Then I'll open bathroom door 1/2 way. If it don't move I'm good. If bath door or Frig door move just tweak with manual level.
