For example I could never see a whole lot of point in an electronic compass! The original model is pretty darn simple and there isn't a whole lot to go wrong with it!

Another example I struggle with is electronic digital calipers - I have several and it just seems that whenever I pick one up to use it the button cell batteries have given up the ghost!

Quicker just to pick up my old standby calipers with the mechanical dial indicator rather than change batteries in the digital one only to find they have gone flat again next time I want to use it!

Must be a sign of old age! I used to be addicted to every new electronic gadget that came along bit more and more I find myself following the "KISS" principle!

I use the calculator within my smartphone even tho' I found the operating manual for my 1960's slide-rule used at NASA..... I still don't like to re-read it every time I need a simple answer.

Sigh. I still have my K&E Deci-Lon slide rule, and found a copy of the book.

The slide rule is the one I went to college with in the 60's.

The first time I saw a digital wrist watch was when an engineer friend of mine showed his new $500 watch. Remember the red digits and nothing else displayed like date etc.. Back in the early '70's.
I asked if he knew why they invented that watch. He said "No, Why". I said "It's for those who can't tell the big hand from the little one".
I came across my old Picket slide rule a while back. Now I can't remember where it is. Should I be worried?

It will be just fine. The slide rule will be ok.

Just used my LevelMatePro for the first time with Anderson Levelers and a ProPride. I really like it for the time savings and lack of arguments with the DW as to whether we are level enough side to side, LOL.

The hitch height save and recall function saves having to get out of the TV for a "final" stinger height adjustment. Just keep backing up into the main unit.

Setup is very simple and use is intuitive. No PhD required. A great product, already one of my favourites and I have no regrets getting it.

I trying to understand how it is used. Does the device itself have to be placed in the AS on a level spot (like the floor or counter top)? Does it then need to be calibrated to that spot?

Thanks!

LevelMatePro

The small box mounts on any near vertical wall that faces forward, back or towards either side. No need for the device to be perfectly level only close. Mine is on the inside of the driver's side wall at the front of the TT. During set up, the device is calibrated and the orientation defined. The website has the instructions and videos for both the set up and install.

Another One

The Wireless RV LEVEL is also on Amazon. Another bluetooth remote leveler. Based on the LevelMatePro reviews I have seen and heard, the RV LEVEL has many more features and more accurate and precise measurements. I use the RV LEVEL but have not personally tried the LevelMatePro. Only down side of the RV LEVEL is it does not work with iPhone, but I keep a $20 android phone handy to use as a dedicated remote.
