If you want something a little more RV specific (both Android):
Camper Leveler -- not only do you see the bubble but you can put your RV's measurements in and it estimates how much you have to raise each corner.

Levelmate Pro - this guy is a bit more involved as you have to buy and install their level in the RV. The app will show live views of how level your RV is (and also show how high each corner needs to be raised). This one is helpful when driving around--you can use it to find a level spot before you park (Here is the hardware you need for it (Amazon)).

Thanks, Jamie!
After checking out my rig: I find that it's 1.4 degrees nose-high, and .4 degrees high on the left-hand side.
Do you think those numbers are reasonable?

I am pretty sure that in the owners manual and/or the leveler operations guide it states to "NOT" have any wheels off the ground for any extended period of time. The stress that puts on the jacks will lessen its life.

Once the jacks start lifting the rig even a few inches almost all the weight is off the suspension and onto the jacks anyway. The last few pounds of a tire that is an inch or two from leaving the ground would be purely negligible.

I agree, the weight of the wheels and tires would be negligible, after the chassis is lifted even a few inches. If the small additional weight of the wheels and tires will damage your jacks, they are seriously inadequate for the chassis they are installed on.

Currently up in Homer AK and I have to park on a sloped driveway if I want to hook up to power and septic tank. Staying about 7-8 weeks at our Sons house.

This is earthquake country with lots of 1-3 magnatude quakes in a fifty mile radius while we are here. Don't like the jacks extended too much. Rear wheels are on the ground with the parking brake on so they will help. So far the quakes seem to be horizontal shakes vs up and down shakes. Of course if the big one happens... ???

I agree with previous posts that an unloaded suspension (some front/rear wheel contact to in the air) should be no problem for the leveling system to handle. (Ha, have never had four wheels in the air but I bet it could do it. Most engineering caculations are derated 50%).

There's no doubt that the more contact points: the better...
But I wonder how much better?

Love the iHandy Level app. Just downloaded it.

Ordered a 2-bubble level set from CW, among other things, couple weeks ago. Didn't come with the order but was charged. Quiried CW and they sent me ANOTHER 10-pcs Level Block set. Not the $5.00 bubble levels.

Now have extra set of levelers. CW's loss my gain. Will use them for a door prize at a future rally.

Again, thanks for the heads up on the handy (pun intended) level.
