I bought one of these.

Prime Prodct 280201 Bubble Level, White - Walmart.com

Place it in the bottom of the fridge and center the bubble till it is inside of the circle.

more important then the fridge, water intrusion when it rains. my slide is on the drivers side, if I don't have passenger side up a little bit, the water follows the rails into the camper. oh the joys of the pacific northwest....

Not much trouble to level

I have what is, for me at least, an easy way to level my 5th wheel. I have three 2x6 boards, cut at an angle that stack on one another. The shortest is long enough to fit under both wheels on a side at one time. Each board lifts the side 1 1/2".

After backing into a spot and looking at the front level I can tell how much I need to lift the lowest side. I simply back about 5' past where I want to end up, put the boards in front of the tires and drive forward onto the board(s) to get the level I need.

The boards stow easily in my pass through. Yes, I could spend around $3000 for a self leveling system but this works just about as well with just a small amount of effort.

Fore and aft leveling is accomplished with the landing gear and a level mounted on the side visible as I operate the landing gear switch.

FWIW somebody needs to do some math. For a 20 ft wheel base 3 deg is ~1 foot off level. You will be more unhappy than the refrigerator. That is why levelers on a C are an expensive toy in both cost and weight capacity.

I carry a couple of the stacked plank blocks but seldom need them. Most places a bit of wiggle in the parking spot is more than adequate.

Actually I believe it would be six inches at either end. Norcold wrote the manual and it is within three degrees one way and six the other. so using your math or mine you can be less then perfect and the fridge should work fine.
