    I got this app for my iPhone and with a Bluetooth headset it works great. ($1.99) It will keep you from running back and forth to check the level in front of the fridge. Complete description at the link above.

    You had to show me that. You may know how much I like gadgets. I already have a talking level indicator, my Son but for 2 bucks I have to see this.

    Seems like it's slow to respond. I would be off the Anderson leveler before it spoke.

    Receptionist, Nah just diagnose me here!

    Its like this see!
    I have this obsession that I can't seem to full fill.
    I just need to keep taking my popup out, even in inclement weather.
    I don't know what to do.
    Until I do I will most likely keep doing it![:D]

    Just tested this and it has problems. Would be useful otherwise.
    Speaks around every second and seems responsive enough. But hearing raise left side every second when it takes a few minutes to move forward, re position ramp and then back up again. Becomes very monotonous.
    Get to -2 degrees left and it tells you to raise jockey wheel even when it was actually level front to back. If you do raise the jockey wheel it will go to +4 nose up before it tells you to lower the jockey wheel. All the while the left side it does not tell you to raise. Seems to work fine when needing to raise the right side.
    I guess it may be the phone it is on(Samsung Note 8), but don't think it will work for me like it is.

    Back to just looking at the level I guess, oh the humanity, having to walk back and forward like a dog! [LOL]

    For married folks, couldn't the man just yell to the wife, as she cranks the BAL leveler, to either raise or lower? [​IMG]

    (You got it, I'm not married.)[​IMG]

    For me, I'll just continue to walk around.

    I permanently setup two levels on my camper box. side to side and fwd to aft. This works so well you don't have to open the camper, you see how much you are off when you pull into the site.

    I level off my camper perfectly in the drive using my 4 foot level on the floor in front of the fridge in both directions. Our you can do it where ever you check your level. Then I mount a side to side and fwd to aft stick on type level on the side of the camper box. I do remove the two sided tape and use an RTV Cement or silicone caulk to fix it to the camper. I tape the levels making sure the bubble is centered until it is drys.
