Got a free app (Ridgid Digtal Level) that shows what level is regardless of color of floor, toilet or counter. Just toss cellphone on deck between driver and pax seats and watch it do its thing. Shows when level the green dot changes to red and centers on the "+" within the centering circle.

Can also place against a wall and it will show level or not. Great for hanging stuff without the GF's "help".

Inexpensive leveling - blocks and apps

Were using Camco 44515 Yellow FasTen Leveling Blocks.
Downloaded to phone these 3 free apps
- Bubble Level Version 1.1
- Bubble Level Galaxy Version 0.2
-Right Angle Triangle solver Version 2.0.5
The 2 bubble level apps also show degrees.
The Right Angle calculator gives inches per degree. for input 194 wheelbase front to back for Axis 25.2 ... about 70 inches track (side to side)
Refrigerator spec Wheel Base direction 3 degrees or less ... Side to Side (Track) 6 degrees max.
Countertop reads same as fridge bottom so dont open fridge to level.
Hope this is useful
Best regards,
James

I know Im making some assumptions here but; Forget leveling the fridge itself. Just level the RV and the fridge goes with it. I keep a $6 bullet level where I can reach it without even getting out of the drivers seat. As soon as Im parked I use it to level the rig by laying it on the window sill for front to rear leveling then hold it vertically against the glass itself for the left to right.

"a $6 bullet level where I can reach it without even getting out of the drivers seat."
Agree .. Probably works fine with levelers controlled from the drivers seat ... if using manual level blocks ... apps help quite a bit.

In a perfect World: that works perfectly!

But what if they didn't mount the Fridge as perfectly level to the rig?

I know... too much thinking!

I never even thought of carrying a level in my coach. Every new RV I have bought invoked a trip to Wally World to buy a 2 pack of RV bubble levels.



I take a 48" level, put it on the floor and level the coach fron to back and side to side. Then I stick one level on the wall below the drivers side window and the other on a blank area on the lower dash that is vertical. If you also take the time to set the zero point on your hydraulic leveling system you will have two independent systems that will tell you when your coach is level at a campsite, no need to carry a separate level.

well....we decided to throw in our 2 cents worth too !
Ron has our level vertical and horizontal inside the door...then we have a small portable level we use too, on the counter top. If the bubble is within the lines, close to center we are good. Refrigerator always runs well.

Easiest way to level your coach.

Have your mother-in-law lay down on the ground. Drive over her parking a front wheel on her stomach. Since her big mouth is constantly harping that she is the only level headed one in the family, presto coach leveled!

Similar to those above. I used a carpenters level set both ways in the middle of the floor to be sure I was level. Then I installed two inexpensive bubble levels near the drivers seat, and also reset my Lippert level which was out of calibration. Works fine now using the bubbles I installed near the drivers seat leveler control unit.

My control panel is on my cabinet above the light switches on my Axis. I guess I could put one on the cabinet and one on the wall by the door. Thanks

We use a 'torpedo' level on the kitchen counter. If we can get something like a 1/2 bubble, I call it good and call it camping!
I know that some make a science out of levelling, but it's not really that hard.
