The RV companion app has a great level on it too. It tell you which side is low and how much to raise up and the same time how much to raise or lower your hitch (front).

It is very easy to tell if level, or how unlevel, now a days

Just now I backed in, putting 2 slabs of 2x under the driver's dide and one under the passanger side rear wheels.. Both bubbles are dead center in the arc and of course when I hit the switch on the Power Gear.. ONly the "CONDGRADUALTIONS YOU ARE LEVEL" light lit.
This is my method as well - except I don't have auto levelers, just wood ramps that I seldom have to use (and I camp a lot in the mountains/forests of Virginia to Pa. - State and Federal Parks). I us the larger bubble levels that have the numbers that represent how far off level you are.

I wish I had thought of the tobacco juice method.

I spent some "money wasted" on levels.

Ya'll need to post those tips in a "tips section."

I use bubble levels on the dash and sidewall and let the auto level do its thing. Then I manually bump the right side up button twice. Then we put out the bedroom slide and DW goes to the vanity on the back wall and opens the door. If it hits her in the head, we lift the right some more until she approves

And just how many times do you bump the "left" side to keep hitting her head?
