Levelmate Pro

Has anyone used or is currently using a Levelmate Pro to help level a motorhome? Thinking of buying on.

I have one installed in our motor home. I works great for finding the best spot to set up. It is great for overnight stays in parking lots. Helps to get things on an "even keel."

Have one. It is quicker and more accurate than auto level after a learning curve (about 3 uses for me).

I have it but unfortunately it seems to burn through the little puck batteries very quickly. Also the blue tooth to my phone is rather weak. It is mounted in the cabinet mid ship 18' from the driver seat. Therefore I don't use it much.

I was given one and gave it away...
with a residential fridge being perfectly level is not so important, and even with a rv absorption fridge 3 to 6 degree swing would be noticed in the fridge or bath door, so I just use them

I found all pricing is the same. Bought mine on Amazon.

This method works for me as well.

One of the things that seem to be fairly important, at least on my trailer is to be as level as you can for the slide outs. They definitely work better when the trailer is level vs. not so much. The LevelMate Pro is an incredibly accurate measuring system if it is setup up properly on the initial setup.....and measure to withing a 1/4" of level, both front to back and side to side.

I think for a TT or 5th wheel the Levelmate has great potential. I fail to see any significant advantage of this product when using it in a motorhome equipped with a leveling system.

I have a bubble level program on an iPad that I place on the floor beside the driver's seat when parking and leveling. The bubble and X/Y degree indicator tell me when I am level or how far off I am wth just a simple glance.

I have one in a class c without a levelling system, I love how you can pull out the exact inches of blocks you need the first time.
I don't have enough experience with a bubble level to translate it into inches of blocking.

So, does it read out in inches that you are off, or is it degrees? The levelmate will tell you down to 1/4".......and that's close enough for a town this size.

I find it to be a very useful tool.
