Unhappy Why does level never feel level?

Yes, my coach is level, I bought a level to keep in the coach just to tell my brain it IS level! Do you ever feel like it's never level though? Walking, sitting in a dinette chair, and your brain makes you think the front is lower of a side is lower? I've had some places where I didn't get level, I think those stops must be haunting me.

I had this feeling just this past weekend. I kept walking around the coach with my iPhone checking with the bubble level on it. Felt lke the front was low but nope.

Carry a marble with you--it will tell the truth...
We have a '15 with auto-level and many times it looks low in front. Checking, tho, shows near level in all directions. It is always possible for settling from pressure on the pads, and level may not stay that way.
Where you check for level may also give a false reading...

You can just open a door and see if it swings.

Mine auto levels a little low in front. Sometimes I manually adjust it but usually not. Guess I should reset the controller.

For the first couple of years, I was about as anal about level as it gets. Now, not so much. In fact, I purposely get the front higher than the back so that the AC condensate goes that way instead of dripping next to the front door.

Mine is level when the DW tells me it is level. Don't make any difference what the bubble level says.

Recently added a LevelMatePRO - Bluetooth® Vehicle Leveling System
Have used it two times
so far leveling our TT and it has worked surprisingly well. Now I don't have to have DW get out and watch the level as I back up. I can watch it on my Iphone from the driver's seat.
So regardless of what my "head" tells me, I know we are level.

I believe from too many knocks to the noogin we have lost our ability to tell level. Got to stay away from them slides and cabinet doors.
My IPhone says we are level , I would swear we are not. Even my 4 ft level says we are level.

If it doesn't swing much I ignore it. Those of us that are former boaters are easy to please (level wise) .... Haven't used the jacks in 2 years other that a few test cycles.
