RV EZ Level

Recently, I made a post asking a question about the automatic leveling system on my coach. I have resolved that problem, but in conversations with you, most seemed to think manual leveling was the best way to go. I found this leveling tool on the internet. Looks like an easy way to manual level. Anyone on here used one like this? I found the exact same model on Amazon for a lot less. Opinions?

I looked at several electronic solutions to the leveling issue.

In the end I bought RV Levels, Set of 2 - RV Designer E401 - Levels - Camping World

Using my old bubble level, I made sure the coach was completely level and then mounted one level on the dash and the other on the wall below the drivers window.

Now, I can level from the drivers seat and be spot on every time.

If you have an I-Phone, there is an app for that. It's called DualLevel. It measures to a tenth of a degree.

I've used the EZ Level for three seasons now. Really a great tool and very easy to calibrate and use.

I have two tools I use. One is my 24" bubble level. I set that on the kitchen counter so that I can see it from the driver's seat.
They other is DW, who just walks from front to back and says "Still low on driver's rear".

As we all know, if Momma ain't happy, ain't NObody happy, so regardless of what my bubble says, or any other device, she's the final QA, so I cut out most of the interim steps.

Looks like a very user friendly device to help manually level. One advantage I could see with that is it would be VERY easy to level with emphasis on a specific area of the coach.

Bubble levels are great and I use my android phone with app as well but with that thing, I could stick it in front of the fridge or even in the bathroom and as long as I could see it, I could get a good level. As it is now, I am either relying on the bubbles on the arm rest or running back and forth to my phone.

I have one - it works great. Be sure to calibrate it as the directions state. I use it in conjunction with a little bubble level at the fridge.

That looks like a very accurate way to go. That said, I keep a 2" round bubble level in one of the slide out dash cup holders.

I "calibrated" it to a precision level I used on several different location in the coach.

If I do use the automatic levelers the bubble level will be dead on every time the automatic levelers are finished.

Most of the time I manually level with the little $3 bubble in the cup holder.

Thanks for the replies. I ordered one from Amazon this morning. Trying to get everything ready for a cross country trip starting in May. We are new RV'ers, buying our motor home last August. Been trying to work out all the bugs in the unit before we go. I am so glad I found this forum with its tremendous wealth of experienced RV'ers out there. Thanks again!

Does anyone have the instructions on how to calibrate? I'm using mine for the first time and must have tossed the instructions.

Thanks
Ben
