Bubble level Galaxy

Has anyone tried this app. It is free and I find it works really good. Very simple to use.

Why not put a level on the side at the front and one on the front where you can see it from the tow vehicle? That way when you back in you know if your level. Sometimes just moving on way or the other will put the bubble in the middle. Then when you unhitch use the jack to level front to back.
Easy peasy when you have levels on the camper.

I find stick on levels tend to shift, possibly due to heat affecting the stick-um. I like to double check mine regularly.

Phone app levels are handy but you have to be sure to calibrate them, especially if you have a phone cover

I'm rather paranoid about my refrigerator so I use stick ons, phone app AND a stick level, plus a big left/right level on the pin box.

If you have an iPhone. You can go to our compass then swipe it to the left and a bubble level will appear. Someone posted this earlier this year. Works great.

I figure the stick level is gospel (after I've obsessed over trying it out on various surfaces I believe to be level.) Then I calibrate the phone level as a quick reference and still check with the stick level once in a while. The stick on ones I "Trust but verify.". More often than not, they're accurate but do seem to shift occasionally over time.

I'm really not obsessive about anything else (ask DW who kinda/sorta is) but I can't stand the thought of the refrigerator slowly eating itself due to a lack of level and I've never gotten a truly definitive answer to what's level enough.

Think about it, if your RV is 30' long and is 1" out of level then your fridge at 5' tall is only about 3/16" out of level . So I would have to say that it would not hurt it in the least, if it did the RVers would be crying on these forums on a daily basis.
I use two 24" levels, cross them and get them level then set my phone on them in the middle then calibrate. Never had any issue and the trailer always feels good to walk and sleep in.

I have a large level on my pinbox and use the anderson leveling blocks.

Wife and I got it down to a five minute operation.

Simple, fast and efficient.

I've wondered why they don't put the refrigerator on gimbels like a ship's compass so it would always be perfectly level. Too expensive, I guess, but an elegant solution.

I tried this on my countertop and checked with bubble level. They matched up!
