Before my last trip, I purchased a
RV EzLevel.

Works GREAT, you have to calibrate ocassionally
Which takes about 20 seconds, all in all, a
good tool if you do not have automatic levelers.

A little "Pricey" at $49.95, but it works !

I have one but I didn't know you needed to calibrate it. Can you explain how?

Happy Trails, Jim

I bought one too but returned it and posted a warning about it. You can "Find" the post.
I too didn't know about calibration, couldn't see any adjusting mechanisms. Have you tried turning the level 90 deg once you have leveled your rig to see if it still shows level?

Hey Jim, I don't have the sheet with me. It's on the coach and it is in for service and a safety check, plus a switch replacement from GSC.

I will post the process when I get the coach back.

From memory (which is getting shorter)
Place the unit on a table , hold on off button for 10 secs, until unit stops flahing, turn 180 degress in same spot. Push button once and your done. I just do this every time because the bouncing of the coach seems to jar settings.

Best regards, Clyde

Hey Eandy, Yup, I turned it and then I read the directions !! Like most of us , I exauhst eveery path available to my mental prowess, and the I read the directions !! LOL

Seems that the motion of the Coach will affect the calibration.

Since then, I calibrate every time which takes about 20 seconds, all has worked well.

Best Regards, Clyde

Hey Earl, I agree! Once i read the "PooP SheeT", It worked fine, I like it.
But then, I'm a "sucker' for gadgets !!

And Yes, GSC cut some corners, but I prefer the manual levelers, heard stories about the auto's, going off at night when coach settles, etc.

Probably have that corrected by now, but ....
I don't mind playing with my toys. LOL

Best regards, Clyde

I talked to a vendor here at the rally and she give me a copy of the calibration instructions. I calibrated mine and now it's accurate again. I had quit using it because I knew something was wrong. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Happy Trails, Jim

Isn't that something. I tried the thing out on a granite kitchen counter (flat) and did the 90deg turn. The instructions with mine only stated to allow amount of time for the lights to adjust or something. It's often my luck to buy something with missing nuts, bolts, etc. Maybe it was missing some instruction. If it works for you great. I just stick to levels mounted to console and lights on hydrolic levelers.

Great Jim, Glad you got it straightened out !!

Like I mentioned, it only takes about 20
seconds to calibrate and I make it part of my routine.

Best regards, Clyde

I know what you mean. It worked great "out of the box" for a time or two, then I started noticing it was off. Like you, back to the bubble level("Old Faithfull")'

Was going to pack it up, and, what did I find,
INSTRUCTIONS, a single typed sheet that
I neglected to read.

Best Regards, Clyde

Hey Clyde, I have to reset mine every time too but still beter than going back and forth to check level. This weekend is looking good here in NE we have a rally in CT dry camping so the cooler weather is a plus.

Earl
