    Bed?
    Table?

    If you fridge, worktop and table aren't level with each other you've got a problem!

    I use my worktop normally, just going by eye, not with a spirit level, basically so long as the pans don't slide off the cooker I'm happy! :thumb:

    Floor, next to the hydraulic jack controls using a small two way plastic level.

    the system has its own levelling aid but is off true and i cant be bothered to get underneath and adjust the remote sensor....:Blush:

    on the Kontiki i used the same level on the kitchen worktop.

    If I was bothered about being level I guess I would use the floor.

    Chuck me I phone on the floor :Eeek:

    Then pick it up

    Unlock it then turn on spirit level :ROFLMAO:

    If its close that'll do

    Or a bias to the rear

    Makes it easier to find the toilet in the dark

    In such a bi big space

    Our camper is always level, it's just the ground underneath that sometimes isn't.

    Floor: simply because it saves me getting up and and down the steps again to put it on the work top.

    Having said that I only level if we are staying put for 2 nights or more (not often)

    When water drains out of both kitchen and bathroom sinks then I know it will also drain out of the shower, and its level enough!

    That is if we bother at all.
