They probably are different. Use the one that makes you feel the most level. Tests are walking around and how the doors swing.

I had to reset the circular level on my RV. I used the kitchen floor as my level surface. My wife has MS and for some reason she can tell if there is even a slight 'tilt' to the floor. So for comfort in walking around I make the floor as level as possible. If the floor is level and the counter is slightly off you will probably never notice. I bought a new 24 inch level to do my reset. Took a lot of time, and lot of up and down, but I got the RV as level as I could at the kitchen area floor, right / left, front / rear. I reset the circular level to the new 'level'. Now using that level seems to be close enough for my wife.

Use a small accurate level in the bottom of your refrigerator's freezer. Once you have that level front to back and side-to-side reset your circular level. The fridge is the only thing that needs to be level.

X2. It may take a few trys, but find the place on your floor that when level is the most comfortable overall for you. For us, it's the center point of the coach near the bathroom door and when it's right, the bathroom door stays where we put it and doesn't swing on it's own.

Find a level paved parking lot, make sure tire pressure is all the same, now check for level, adjust your sight levels.

Um, it's rather important to have the slides level as well...

Even before the Auto Level on my Atwood Levellegs stoped working, I would use the Camco EZ Level. Very fast, easy and much more accurate. I also notice that when I'm done the RV isn't sitting as high as Auto Level would have made it. I can't wait to try it in the freezer

Mine is level when the DW says it is level. Don't matter what the bubble says.

There's an old saying.... "A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches isn't quite sure".

Pick what feels best and reset the bubble

Well, actually that is coach dependent. My Monaco calls for the slides to be extended before leveling the coach.

I press the level switches until my wife says "OK". Works for me as long as the boss is happy.

Level? Level? I don't need no stinkin level!!!

Our rigs instructions say to level, run slides out, then relevel. Might need to adjust the auto level though as it feels slightly low in front.
