Here is my newest Auto Level system. It works very well and is much simpler than my first version.

I use LevelPro for $140. Box is about the size of a pack of cigarettes, it gets mounted near the front of the RV when it is perfect level.
The app is on your smart phone. You can actually get into your RV site with your app opened on your smart phone and see the 4 corners of your RV. The apps shows a picture of the 4 corners in red if unloved and green if level. In red it will show in inches or minor inches how high or low you are without getting out of your tow vehicle. I usually get exactly where I need to be sod all my utilities line up with trailer.
Then I move forwards or backwards a few feet to see if I can get as close to level as possible. There's been times I didn't have to pull out my manual leveling blocks.
The device also saves your 5th wheel hitch height so when you are ready to hitch up again you just open the app while standing outside near your front jacks power switch. I can adjust the front jacks one time looking at my app and jump into the truck and back up to a perfect alignment one time. My trailer is based on the 5th wheel.

Yes I like it. I was going to do a better review on it soon but went and added the above info.
I installed the repeater in the batter compartment near the vent, I use one of the vent screws.

Sorry wrong picture. This is a picture of my repeater for my TST TPMS Not the leveling device.

It would be great to take what this app does and incorporate that into what I am doing - I am actually using the information I collect to perform auto leveling, so instead of watching the app while pushing buttons, my system is sending remote signals to control the landing gear and indicate the position of each landing gear foot. I could report back real-time the distance in inches off level each corner is (and specifically the pinbox) since I am precisely measuring the left-right and front-rear level.

I saw their video - very interesting product.

The device you show is the TST Tire Pressure Monitoring System repeater, not the LevelMate Pro device (it has a sticker on it with arrows and has a built-in button-cell battery).

This is the level mate pro sensor ....

Another senior moment. here is the correct picture. I mounted up front of the trailer as the instruction say.
I like the fact if I'm not unhitching for a quick over night stay I can just look at my phone app of the level screen and move backwards or forwards to get the best level spot with out jumping out and using ramps under my wheels.
