No Guesswork - Know How Much Height Is Needed to Level Your RV

Most levels only tell you when your RV or trailer is out of level, without offering any measurements to guide you. This means that you must repeatedly add or remove blocks until your RV is level. Driving your RV up and down the blocks is also time consuming and can wear down the blocks. The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level takes the guesswork out of leveling by telling you exactly how much you need to raise or lower your RV or trailer to get it level.


If your RV is out of level, a red bar will appear on either the left or right side of the display. Each red bar represents 1-1/2" of height that must be added to that side. Once your RV is level, the middle green light will illuminate.


For smaller leveling tasks, the Smart Level can also be configured to make each illuminated red bar equal 1" of height. Check the small red LED in the center of the device. When the small red LED is illuminated, each red bar represents 1" of height.


This level's display is hinged, so it can be used for both front-to-back and side-to-side leveling. When the level is folded in alongside the RV, it will measure front to back. Swing the level out so that the display is perpendicular to your RV, and it will measure side to side. The hinge also allows you to swing the level out 180 degrees so that it can be seen from the driver's seat using your rearview mirror.


Use with Hopkins Leveling Ramp Kit for the Easiest Leveling

This level is specifically designed to work with the Hopkins leveling ramp kit (HM08200 - sold separately) to make leveling your RV or trailer as simple as possible. Each red light that appears on the Smart Level means that 1 leveling block from the kit must be added on that side of your RV or trailer. No extra calculations or guesswork - simply read the display and add the blocks that you need.

There were delays in availability (as mentioned by others), and etrailer handled in a decent way. The product seems exactly as described...but... I installed it yesterday. Had to attach it to window, since the trailer wall is not flat. Came home today (~1 hour drive), and found the unit MIA. The stickum was still present (attached to window), but the bracket that came with the factory-applied mounting tape had separated completely, departing at some point on the way home. :( If you buy this unit, attach it using the provided screws, NOT the factory-provided mounting tape. 526243

It was easy to install but even with the solid mount when you go for the side to side level you still have to hold the level against the mount. 520297

I ordered this item last year and was disappointed in the quality of the workmanship. It's all plastic and as a result, the little pins that hold the pieces in place break quite easily. Despite getting a replacement one (because the pins broke off the initial one in the first 5 minutes), I have yet to install it. I might be tempted to buy another one if the new one's pins were made from metal or were somehow more robust. Sadly disappointed in what should have been a very helpful tool! 652574

Good concept. Poor quality. Fell off first day. Not where I stuck it, but where the factory stuck the back to the device. The case is not sturdy enough to provide accurate measurements. Door opened while traveling down the road. 848484

this thing is amazing. It has made backing into a camp spot so easy especially at night when you get in late. The lights let you know when you are level and you can just stop and set up. No more getting out and checking and trying again and again and again only to find you still are not level. If this one ever goes bad I will buy again and I have recommend this to all my friends 781975

by:

Fairly simple to use, install is fairly easy although they should include a reminder about mounting far enough away from other items on your rig as I mounted mine about 4" to the right of my landing gear control and did not realize it was too close until after I installed a screw. I did just cut off the finger tab on the left back side and then it was able to slide on and off, just wish I would have mounted it about 1 more inch over. 777226

Ask the Experts about this Hopkins Tools

  • Does the Trailer Need To Be Level To Install the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level
    The trailer does have to be level or as close as possible to install the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level part # HM08201 according to my contact at Hopkins. Please note, the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level is designed specifically for the Hopkins Leveling Kit part # HM08200. If the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level was not initially installed on a level trailer then the system would not correctly show level each time you went to activate it since the baseline reading was off.

  • Can the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 be Mounted Inside a Motorhome/Trailer
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 has a universal installation system that allows you to either use the 3M Double Coated Tissue Tape or the 3 included screws for the installation. It can be installed both inside and outside. This system is great when use with the Hopkins Leveling Kit # HM08200.

  • What Length Trailer Was Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for Trailers # HM08201 Set Up For
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 is designed to give you a rough estimate of how much further you'd need to jack the trailer up or down to get it level. Each red light will indicate 1-1/2 inches that it needs to move up or down. This can also be set to 1 inch. This was configured with the average RV length in mind so while it will work with your 45 foot long trailer you might find that the indicator lights aren't perfect in terms of the amount of...

  • Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level Mounting Instructions For A Motorhome
    The instructions for mounting the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 are the same for motorhomes and trailers. You can attach the level to your motorhome with the included bracket and adhesive backing. It also has three pre-drilled holes in it, as well as included hardware for a permanent mount installation.The leveler can be removed from the bracket if needed. If it were me I would place the Smart Level # HM08201 near stabilizer jack controls, if they are powered, or...

  • Does Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for Trailers Require Initial Calibration
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 that you referenced does need to be level first time you install it.

  • How to Calibrate Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level
    What you are experiencing just means that you need to calibrate the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201. To do this you need to set the Smart Level on a table and level it. Once the green bubble is where it needs to be you press and hold the green button. When you release it the top 2 lights should be flashing yellow. Once this happens just press the green button one more time and then the center green light should come on. I reached out to my contact at Hopkins who confirmed this.

  • How Would Hopkins Smart Level be Viewed in Rear View Mirror of RV
    Lets say you install this on the driver side wall of your RV and have it flipped out so that you can view it in your mirror. The level itself would still look correct as you look at it in the mirror. So if you were too high on the passenger side the indicator on the driver side of the green dot would illuminate.

  • Where is a Good Place to Mount the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201
    If it were me I would place the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 near stabilizer jack controls, if they are powered, or near a stabilizer jack itself if it is manually operated. That way you can make your leveling adjustments with the Smart Level right there!

  • How Many of the Hopkins LED Levels for Trailer HM08201 Are Needed for Trailer
    If you wanted to level your trailer from front to back and side to side you'd only need one of the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Levels # HM08201. The hinged design of this kit allows you to check the front to back and side to side level just be swiveling it.

  • Can the Hopkins Electronic Smart Level Be Calibrated?
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 can be recalibrated. According to my tech contact at Hopkins, you simply will level your trailer using the bubble level and then press the green power button once. The top two lights should flash and that will help the level to recalibrate for the bars to help you with future use showing you either 1-1/2 inches or 1 inch increments as you determine in the settings shown on the sticker.

  • LED Smart Level System Installation For A Toy Hauler
    I did contact Hopkins and installing the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 on an uneven surface like the dutch lap siding you've described could require modifications. That could mean mounting a plate over the siding to provide a flat surface as an example. As long as the bubble level indicator is level, the rest of the unit will work as designed. Once the LED Smart Level is installed, the Hopkins RV Leveling Kit # HM0820K works seamlessly with the Smart Level to make...

  • Side to Side Level Installation Position on a 35 foot Camper Using the Hopkins Smart Level.
    The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers part # HM08201 was designed to be mounted closer to the front of the camper. At least as close as it takes to still be able to see it. The way it pivots allows you to watch it in your mirror as your pulling onto your leveling blocks. While there will be a little flex since you are still connected to the truck for the majority of the leveling it doesn't effect it to a noticeable degree. I've linked a video on it for you to...

  • Recommended Trailer Level That Does Not Require Drilling
    We do have trailer levels that do not require drilling into your camper, but the Camco AccuLevel Trailer Bubble Level # CAM25563 does require drilling to mount it. Since you (understandably) do not want to drill a hole in your camper I recommend the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201 which mounts onto your camper with adhesive backing. It can be used for side-to-side or front-to-back leveling, is easy to use with the press of its on/off button and is weatherproof to keep it...

  • Recommended Electronic Leveler for Truck Camper
    The leveler I recommend is the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 because of how easy it is to use. All you need to do is press the power button in the middle and you're set! After that you will use the LED display to ensure you are level front-to-back and side-to-side. When you are done you don't even have to turn if off, it will simply shut down on its own after 60 seconds of being inactive (motionless). The Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level # HM08201...

  • Clinometer Use for Determining Pitch and Roll to Determine if RV Parking Location is Level
    The Rampage Clinometer with Compass - Analog # RA791006 will help you detect if you are on level ground or not with your RV, so it will absolutely be a help. It will only detect how level the ground is under your tires and suspension, so there may still be additional leveling needed at your landing gear. One of the best options for that is the Hopkins Electronic LED Smart Level for RVs and Trailers # HM08201 which can give you both the parallel and perpendicular leveling of your RV...
