Trailer Levels

We have a 31' Classic Limited and want to mount a permanent level to the trailer to help when setting up. Where does everyone mount their levels and what kind of level do you have? Thanks.

We use the one provided on the top of the tongue jack. It's adjustable to calibrate and works well for us.

We use Hopkins Never Fade. The left and right is placed on the body under the big window behind the propane tanks. The front and back is placed on the side of the hitch frame, also behind the propane tanks. By reading the graduations you know how many 1-inch plastic blocks it takes to get level left and right. Easy!

I bought one of these at Lowes then drilled, tapped and screwed it to the tongue right behind the hitch coupling latch.


Dirt cheap and accurate enough.

Neat, Wayward. I like that solution a lot.

After having Montana's harsh winter weather negatively impact levels installed on the outside of our SOB, we now use the trailer jack level ( as dkottum does) to get the unit in the ballpark for level and then use a torpedo level on the counter in the galley to fine tune madam's silver bullet! The levels sure do look pretty on the outside, but ... YMMV

I just take out my 6" torpedo bubble level kept in the front storage and place it on the rub rail that runs around the midline. Its close enough so the fridge is level. I don't want to attach anything to the outside permanently.

I have a bubble level outside. Came with the AS.

Also I found my iPhone app works well. It spells out the "degrees" plus/minus.

Folks with a ProPride or haha can use it to set the stinger / hitch box angle too

I agree with Doug, the bubble level on the top of the jack works great. Calibrate it by adjusting the three screws.
