If it works as advertised, you can monitor right/left and front/back levelness in real time on your iPhone as you drive around a campground and navigate individual sites. To me, that would be a big plus, particularly when camping alone. Joe

Thanks for everyone's input. Yes it was the LevelMate that I was interested in getting. The idea of having real time information is what appeals to me. Also knowing exactly how much I'm off level would make leveling an easier process.

Again, thanks!

Yeah - I just bought one of these too and installed it. Can't wait for the first trip to try it out!

For all those who responded with the app suggestions - I'm done with trying to have my DW read the level app off my iPad while I try and level the trailer! This will be so much better - back in to a site and see how off you are. Pull forward, add blocks (the app even tells you how much height you need and what side). Back up and check again. Unhook and adjust jack until level. Done.

Sorry for the delayed post - went camping 2 weeks ago and the device worked exactly as advertised! I backed in to the site, the iPhone app told me how much height needed to be added on which side (in this case 2" on the driver's side); I set the leveling blocks in place, pulled forward on to them and watched the app tell me we were good to go.

Then I unhitched and held the phone in my hand while I adjusted the front jack until level. The app will also memorize your hitch height, so you can easily get it back to the right level when you are ready to hook back up.

Only complaint I've got is the battery shows pretty low, and it's supposed to last 1 year. It's an easy to replace coin cell, but still. I'm going to replace it and turn the sleep time down from 12hrs to 1hr - the recommended for optimum battery life on a towed trailer.

Last comment - I ordered a set of Anderson leveling ramps for the next trip. To me this looks like the absolute best possible combination. Back in to the spot, see which side needs leveling, prop the ramps in front of the tires and pull forward until level. No guessing on how many blocks to stack, no need to worry about pulling too far forward or not far enough. Plus the included chocks become part of the system holding the camper up.

Sounds fun! Keep us posted as to the battery life and using with the Anderson levelers which are great!

I use the level mate pro too and love it. I turned off the hitch height function and believe that greatly helps battery life.

I also have level mate pro. For some reason. Mine keeps forgetting the level setting. It may be user error. I tried something different and will see if it remembers this time. So far each of three times I had To re-level it, as when it told me it was level it was off.

I don't have instructions at hand right now, but maybe try resetting and setup again. Mine has been working great since install. Worse case call company, I heard they are very helpful. GL

I'm about to pull the trigger and buy one of these devices. Since some of you have been using it for awhile are there any reservations or regrets about spending the bucks?

My DW is the primary reason I want to get one of these. She gets stressed out too easily when trying to get level. If this works as advertised it will be better for both of us!

I have the level mate pro and am extremely pleased with the way it works. Nice to pull/back into a spot and see horizontal level before getting out

I've been using the LevelMatePRO and Anderson levelers for several trips now and it's a great combo. Couldn't be happier. Haven't had to change the batteries yet

I turned off the tongue height function and have had no issues with batteries

We also have the Levelmate Pro and Anderson Levelers. They make a great system and leveling is so much easier than blocks. Many times you can get the trailer to level itself simply by moving the trailer location slightly, all without getting out of the tow vehicle.
