THOR #12830
LevelMate Pro

Recently installed. Itís awesome when it works. Trouble connecting often even when on top of it. Itís brand new. Could it be the battery?

Anyone have issues or experience with it?

I install a new battery in mine every spring. Havenít had any issues with it connecting with my phone.
I like mine too. Beats arguing with DW on if the rig is level or not.

Yup new battery every spring here too.

I have it in a closet about 12 ft behind the driver's seat and sometimes it doesn't connect--have to walk back closer...

LevelMate Pro

I installed the levelmate pro but it wasn't very accurate. I think I might have gotten a defective one. I am sending it back and asking for a replacement and I will try again. Just curious if other people followed the instructions to level with the slides out or not? Second question, is the levelmate spot on or just close to the proper amount of blocking needed?

Its been pretty accurate for me. Did you put in your RVs dimensions in the setup?

The accuracy of the Level Mate Pro is directly proportional to how you set it up.
Meaning, if you calibrate it initially with your RV exactly level, it will repeat showing level afterwards. If your RV isnít level when you set it up, it will not be accurate.

Mine is dead on. Proper set up once is all that is needed.

Thanks guys I had the coach perfectly level & followed all the instructions step by step. It must be a defective device. I will get a replacement and try again. I have heard such great things about the level pro, maybe something happened to it during shipping.

This was the main reason we got one. Our full driver side slide tips the RV once deployed. We leveled the RV with the slide out, pulled slide in, then calibrated the RV as level on LevelMate Pro (although it is not level, but at the proper set for when slide is out to be perfectly level).

Select our campsite, connect LevelMate Pro, blocks to level to LevelMate Pro numbers, run slide out and perfectly level everytime.

I have a Levelmate still in the box. I have a 30FE also. Where did you install the unit? I was thinking around the stove or fridge.

As soon as I enter my coach there is a closet for coats etc. to my left. I installed it on the left inside of that closet. I wanted to make sure I didn't drill any holes where there would be any wires running and I also wanted to make sure it was located on a solid surface and where it would not be bumped into or hit in any way.
