So, you’ve just pulled up to your favorite campsite and you’re ready to level your RV. You’ve tried and tired, but just can’t seem to get it level! Some of us have the automatic hydraulic system, which makes it real easy. But for the rest of us, this can be a laborious process.
But, it doesn’t have to be. In this post, I want to give you a brief overview on how to level your RV. This isn’t exhaustive, so if you have a RV manual, make sure to consult that too!
Purchase a Leveler
Purchase a leveler and install it in a easy to read place near your dashboard. It is also said that having it near your fridge is good, as having your fridge level is beneficial.

Parking Your RV
When you first park your RV, I recommend finding the most level place you can before putting it in park. That way, you only have to make minimal adjustments. As you park, be aware of your level, and put that bubble as close to the middle as possible.
Sometimes trying to park it level doesn’t mean it will be, especially if you are in a rocky or very un-level area. It is also recommended that you do not rely on your stabilizer jacks for leveling. They will only sustain a certain amount of weight and stress.
You can purchase some Lynx Levelers or some treated wood. [Make sure these items are bigger than the tires. It’s not good for tire to hang over] Simply put these items under the appropriate side that needs to be leveled. Sometimes leveling may be as simple as moving some dirt from one side to the other.
After writing this post, I found another cool way of leveling your RV. In this video, the guy made his own air bags. He then used airbags to level out his truck.
