In this video, I review a new wireless RV leveling aid called the LevelMatePRO.
I show you package contents, how I installed it in the RV and a demo of its software in action. I also talk about what I believe is a killer feature for me — Its wireless capability allows it to be used inside the tow vehicle, making it ideal for finding the most level ground to camp on when boondocking.May 29, 2016 at 9:17 am #29745Dan HuhnParticipant
That’s a nice devise for those who have manual jacks and don’t have a levelup system. that would have been something I would have bought for my old rig. I always like to see new gadgets that are out there Thanks Ray!May 30, 2016 at 9:00 am #29779

Ya, rub it in. Lucky guy. 🙂May 31, 2016 at 4:35 pm #29808LarryParticipant
Nice to have latest gadgets to make life easier,fun to have interesting new item.June 18, 2016 at 8:38 am #30507Since my initial review, the LevelMatePRO app has been updated with extra screens to aid with motorhome leveling. The device will now tell motorhome users how many inches each tire needs to be off the ground to level the rig. Know how many leveling blocks are required on the first try.There was no extra charge to add this new feature. I simply clicked update on the smartphone app. Cool!October 18, 2017 at 3:58 pm #48481
Modded My LevelMatePro – Added an On/Off Switch
See Full Blog Post – http://www.loveyourrv.com/levelmatepro-adding-power-switch-mod/
in this video, I install a power switch in my LevelMatePro RV digital leveling aid. Early on the LevelMatePro suffered from short battery life. The company released an update to the app that helped out quite a bit.
Now they have released a second generation device which includes an on/off switch for full battery life control.
For existing users, they have a “Customer Loyalty Upgrade Offer” of $95. Still a little steep though so I decided to add a switch myself.
I added a second battery holder soldered to the first, then drilled a hole and mounted the switch. Finished it up by connecting the wires and embedding the new holder in silicone.
Disclaimer: Modifying the LevelMatePro like I’m doing will likely void any warranty and may render it inoperative. You have been warned. – Ray

Pricey but looks very handy.December 7, 2017 at 4:39 pm #49114DonnyParticipant
I installed mine over the weekend. It took a good minute to get it to sync to the phone. If anyone runs into this issue (that the phone cannot connect or recognize the device) follow the trouble shooting guide on the back of the manual step by step to uninstall the app, remove and replace the battery, and retry. I almost ripped my hair out until I followed the sequence exactly as the manual stated. It’ll work first time.
Now for me, it said my passenger side was 2″ off, but my 4′ level didn’t seem to think so. Since I was already stable in the driveway, I just override and hit level in the app. When I set up at my first camping location, I’m going to level using my bubbles and reset and see how accurate it is.
For those of you that have the levelmate, have you folks checked it’s accuracy compared to the old-fashioned way?December 7, 2017 at 4:48 pm #49118

My wife is the level expert, I back in she can look at our side to side bubble level and tell pretty accurately everytime how many boards we need. The LevelMatePro matches up with her very closely. 🙂December 7, 2017 at 6:15 pm #49124DonnyParticipant
When you did you initial set up with it, did you set it up with your slide in or out? Everything I have ever read says that you should level your RV before you put out your slide to eliminate the risk of damage to the slide if the coach is not level.
Looking at the manual, it says to do the leveling with the slide out :scratch: . I did mine with the slide in.December 7, 2017 at 6:32 pm #49126
We always account for our one big slide causing a 1/2 – 3/4 inch change in the right to left level when it comes out. We want the trailer level after the slide comes out not before. I think there is quite a bit of wiggle room as far as level goes with the slide before worrying about damage. I’m only concerned if we are setting up on super unlevel ground. Usually, the slide is out before I’ve unhooked the truck. It lets Anne get to work setting things up inside while I can finish unhooking and stuff outside.
Of course, the manual will tell you one thing to protect their butts but then there is real-world use. Unless its really off level, I don’t worry about it. Many times we have overnighted with the truck hooked up and a bit unlevel and had the slide out, no problem.
We’ve full time almost 7 years, that’s a lot of in and out, slide still works great. Knock on wood. 😉March 21, 2018 at 10:45 am #51096
