As someone has already said, "If it feels level to you, its level". The newer generation of RV refrigerators won't know the difference.

Yup! Gotta have the DW happy.

When I still had the 5th wheel, I was very picky and tried to be as accurate as possible leveling. I had no jacks in our last MH and don't have any now. I just try to park in as level a spot as I can find, and it seems to work just fine. I seem to agree with Ed and don't think that it is that big a deal. Iv'e never had a problem with the refrigerator not working if we weren't perfectly level.

If you don't have a slide and your MH doesn't come with Jacks, it is a real hassle if you want to be perfectly level all the time.

I have a bag of those little orange leveling blocks. Usually just a couple work just fine. I put the slide out and drive up on them. I can tell if we are 1/4 inch out of level. Especialy if my heads on the pillow.

Have you ever seen a MH with the front wheels 2' off the ground?

Well I have a TT, and I placed bubble levels at all the corners on the exterior using a contractor's level. I use these to level from side to side. Once unhooked, I level front to back with anoher bubble level and raise the front jack a little past level to allow for runoff and to keep my head above my feet in the front bedroom. No problems with the fridge or doors or the DW.
