Question Level Master Help


Greetings Honorable Airstream Owners:

I have this model level master on my AS, the side to side works well, but the front to back level seems to go out of alignment by the time I get to my destination.

I cannot find the manufactures website to see if there is a way to keep the front to back adjusted.

Anyone have a way to keep the front and back level, level?

Thanks!

My dealer refused to install it. I am glad. I did not want any holes in my baby.

I use a standard 2 foot long leve inside the entry door.
Check side to side then front to rear.

Yes, there is a way; developed by Nick Crowhurst. It works very well. Although developed for side to side, it also works for front to back.

I'll let him describe it in detail: http://www.airforums.com/forum...57-post56.html

There is an adjustment screw above the fore aft bubble. It could be that the screw threads are stripped, if so set it to level and epoxy the set screw in so that it won't turn.

you may have to readjust it a couple of times until the rubber grommet takes a set.

i put a new one on last year and it took about 3 trys to get it to stay put!

Doesn't mean the fridge is level

Proper RV refrigerator operation/life is the primary reason for leveling an Airstream. In my case, the fridge is not square with the floor. While settling has probably occurred, I don't think the fridge was square with the floor went my Overlander left the factory in '67. For this reason, leveling with respect to the refrigerator's freezer compartment is the best thing to do.

I use a 2-dimensional level made by Reese which is mounted to the tongue jack. It can be easily calibrated via three adjustment screws. Unfortunately, I do not know if Reese still makes it. If they do, I recommend it as it does not stand out like anything attached to the Airstream.

In some cases the fore and aft adjusting screw will come in contact with the panel it is mounted on. If this is the case. just shim it off the panel.
Good luck.

I wholeheartedly agree. Our old 79 Ambassador had a refrigerator that was
definitely tilted with respect to the floor. The PO had installed multiple
levels that disagreed with each other. When I finally figured out which one
matched the fridge, the adult beverages stayed much colder.
