In the pre-smarthphone days one of the first mods to any Travel Trailer was a set of levels:


You got out you 4 foot level, leveled the trailer in both directions and put one on the front and one on the side for future setup and leveling.

The same concept works in the MH except you put the levels inside where the driver can see them when leveling the MH with levelers or by driving on leveling blocks.

I mounted at least 20 sets of similar levels over the years, hard to beat and invaluable at the time

I keep a cheap 30 inch carpenter's level behind the front seat. Versatile, easy to use, and the size and multiple bubbles give me a feeling of confidence about the reading.

...and if you ever get caught up in a road rage mess: it'll make one heckuva nice defensive weapon!

A trip to Dollar Tree will get you a cheap torpedo level for a buck. I keep mine in the kitchen drawer. If the bubble is within the circle, that is close enough for the refer.
