Got another gadget, the Level Mate Pro. After installing I raised the jacks and releveled the coach, as you can see the auto level is about 4" low on the right side. I used a 36" level on the floor in several places and counter tops, it confirms what the Level Mate is showing. Guess now I need to recalibrate the auto level and see how close it will come each time.

I tried both my old 10" iPad and my wife's 7" iPad, after switching back and forth I'm staying with the 7". The 10" iPad is nice but just to big, takes up a lot of real estate on the dash. The 7" still gives me a nice big picture but doesn't take up as much room and is a lot lighter, like it!

The picture really doesn't do it justice! I stuck down a mounting disc and used the new dash mount I got with the support arm, think it's going to work great.

HI DinoC41,

Is your Ford Escape 4WD or just FWD? Have you guys noticed that your rear ladder loosens up during routine travel? Mine is always loose and I will have to remove the anchor plates to tighten the supports.

Its been one month since my neck surgery. Overall i feel prerty good but the neck brace in a pain. It was time for my monthly generator run. Also a good time to check out the new obd11 reader i got.

Installed the Torque Pro app from google store. Torque Pro was the first app recommended by the obd11 maker. App installed fine and it recognized the reader.

The main thing i wanted was engine and tranny temps. Well Torquo Pro cant read tranny temp. Returned the app and got my refund from google.

I then took Jamies advise and downloaded the Forscan app. Also loaded fine. The app isnt really user friendly or im just not very smart to navigate the app. Took a while but i finally got it. Engine and tranny temps. Also added a couple of useless things to monitor, fuel, outside temp etc.

You can show them as gauges or just listed. I like the listed look better, first pic. May add more gauges if someone tells me what they are and how it will help me to see them.
