21st Century RV Leveling. Check Out The LevelMatePRO!

21st Century RV Leveling. Check Out The LevelMatePRO!

Whether you have a motorhome, travel trailer or 5th wheel, leveling your RV is a routine part of setting up camp. But even rigs with hydraulic jacks like ours can have leveling challenges to contend with… until now. Enter the LevelMatePRO!

We recently discovered that we’d been using 20th century equipment to address a common RVing task, when 21st century technology was available. Now that we’ve updated our gear, we look at leveling in a whole new way. It’s actually fun… even cool!

The LevelMatePRO is a small bluetooth device for leveling your RV

Besides comfort factors, like not sleeping at an angle or having water pool up at the far end of the shower, most RV refrigerators have to be kept close to level to operate properly. While being 100% level isn’t the single most important factor in selecting a campsite, you might not feel that way when you run into the bathroom door in the middle of the night because it swung open.

We love to discover, and share, great RV products that make our lives better, and the LevelMatePRO is one of the most clever and innovative RVing devices we’ve ever seen. The fact that it interfaces with our iPhone and iPad (other smartphones and tablets work fine, too) really appeals to our geekiest tendencies. It really is downright cool, allowing us to look at leveling in a whole new way. We actually have fun leveling now, almost like it’s a game!

Check out the video to see how it works. But regardless of what type of RV you have, here’s a note of caution, just so you can’t say we didn’t warn you… When you see it, you’ll want one, too. ;-)

Love your videos. I learn so much on how to make a complicated task an easy one.I replied once before about the width measurement but I have one more question, I hope. I have a 2013 Newmar Dutch Star and my level indicator is the same as yours, the bathroom door, however, I have to have the slide outs out to be able to see whether or not my rig is level. I can't open the forward bathroom door all the way to let it move.Does it make a difference whether the slide outs are in or out. I usually level with the slide outs in and then extend them.

Hi Bill! We also level before extending the slides, but your case is yet another example of the benefit of a LevelMatePRO. We'd suggest that you level your rig normally (slides in) and then extend the slides. Now use your bathroom door to fine tune the level. Adjusting the level a bit with the slides out shouldn't be any problem.... we have actually extended the slides before beginning leveling many times. Once your bathroom door is perfect, re-set the level on the LevelMatePRO (I recall it's the "Set Level" function, which tells it that your current position is exactly level - generally used for first-time set-up). Once that's done, you should be able to simply use the LMP to level with your slides in, without needing the bathroom door any more. Extending the slides might change your level slightly, but not likely enough to make the door swing. Hope this helps. Please let us know how you make out!

If the battery life is such a issue why don’t they provide a charger, like every other electronic gadget?

The new models have a small on/off switch, and battery life is no issue.

We're newbies with a new motorhome and I don't think the auto level brings it to completely level. Hope it's not a stupid question but can we use the manual buttons to level after we used the "auto" level without screwing something up? I haven't done a "reset" on the auto level yet as I wanted to check the new rig out first to see how well it worked. I am attempting to purchase the Level Mate Pro now. I am eternally grateful to you guys and the Wynns for all your excellent information. I'm addicted to your videos, so detailed and articulate. Keep your experiences coming. You keep your rig so pristine it makes lots of us want to join you on your journeys in camping.

Again, congratulations on your new motorhome, Joe, and thanks for your kind words. Once the auto-leveling has finished and thinks the RV is level, you can absolutely turn the system back on and fine-tune without harming anything. A good rule of thumb is to fine-tune side-to-side first (if needed) and then finish by fine tuning front-to-rear, just like the automatic system probably already does (if it's anything like ours at least).

Here's a quick inside tip for you about the LevelmatePRO. We just got word from the manufacturer that the first shipment just arrived to replace all the inventory we sold them out of when this video came out. They're being readied for shipment and they should have them back in stock at Amazon soon. But there is such a huge list of people who have signed up on their website to be notified, we'd suggest that you do that too if you haven't already ( http://command-electronics.com ). You can also be sure that you're subscribed to our blog posts ( https://www.thervgeeks.com/subscribe if you're not already signed up), as we'll be making an announcement about this very soon as well. We don't know how long the supply will last, so when the announcement comes out, we'd grab one right away, as we're aware that at least several hundred people are on the waiting list, and not sure how many are coming in this first batch.

Just read your notice that they were sold out. Thank Goodness I ordered my early. And I did tell them that it was because of you guys that I ordered it.

So glad you ordered fast, Randy. We sold them out in no time!

Dumb question; could a phone with an accelerometer and app do nearly the same thing? We rent our RV when we're not using it, so this would be great for us, but not our renters.

But if you could lay a phone on the counter by the fridge, say, and have it give you the same info, even if it's not quite as accurate, that would be a great value add.

Phone apps will absolutely get you pretty level, but they won't tell you exactly how high each wheel needs to be raised to do it (not really a factor if you have hydraulic jacks). We're planning a demonstration later this year using the LevelMate on a rig without jacks. There is just something so perfectly precise about it. And if your renters don't use it, at least you'll still get to. ;-)
