    We put a glass marble on the slightly textured work-surface in the MH. If is stays still, or rolls away slowly, then no levellers needed. It also shows more precisely which way the MH is tilting.

    My van has to be ever so slightly nose & offside raised. Only then will the shower unit drain completely. Therefore a spirit level and a modicum of experience are required:D


    Coincidentally I've just purchased a set of Milenco Triples as my old yellow Fiamma ones are somewhat squashed through breaking up.:(

    Ours is the same
    I set our van up in the perfect position & then fixed a small caravan spirit level up to show level where I can see it whilst driving.

    We use the spirit level app on the I pad.....not used our ramps at all, to date. As for the shower draining, I found microfibres towels do a better job of soaking up any undrained water than they do of drying my skin. Had to go and and buy two new bath towels in Poland.....cos I threw the microfibres towel in! Horrible things.

    We're parked up on the farm we live at during the week and need full size car ramps under the front wheels to get any where near level. We could move but love it here. (y)

    I've led a sheltered life - I hadn't realised "Target Spirit Levels" were so readily available!! (And I have a ready supply of marbles!!)

    Many years ago we had a VW camper and I used a portakabin support as a jack. I could hook it under the front or rear bumper. Once in Devon, on a very steep site, I had to lift the front wheels about 15 inches off the ground to get it level
