Two rules: First, end-to-end ... anything within half to 3/4 bubble and as Dennis stated.... no complaints from the DW! And second... side-to-side: I want the shower door to stay open so I can clean the shower and not have the cold door hit my butt!

On one of my trips I left my bubble level at home so I used a golf ball and rolled it on the hardwood floor from front to back then side to side.

Is it level?
No sir. Can you see the bubble?
Yes sir .
Good enough.

Actuall I have the small bubbles next to the driver's seat.I pull into the site and look at the bubbles.If the site is off I check side to side and put blocks if more than 2" low.Perfect is tough so usually pretty good is good enough.

There are no dumb questions only dum answers.
After using the auto level system I check with a bubble level.

I gotta get some pointers from Jim. My wife makes me lay on the floor.

Save all the wifes, try this adjustment, if you have this bubble level under your coach.
You can thank Max Hubrich and oemtech for the fix.

We start with the bubbles by the driver's side where the jack controls are. Then we check the bathroom door. It 'measures' the side to side and front to back. If we lean to either side, I choose the driver's side so the tanks drain good.

I like to level at the stove burners. Like the grease in the skillet level out and not run to one side. If the burner is level then the shower door and refrig are close enough.

I use a carpenter level on the floor, believing that the floor is tied flat to the MH frame. Then with the floor dead level, I installed a bullseye level mounted on 3 small springs for adjustability, on the forward portion of the wooden drivers armrest so I can see it while pushing the jack buttons.

Question- Do you level flat or leave the front high or low to drain water off the slide awnings?
