Overnight unlevelness with refrigerator

I am leaving before light in the morning so have hooked up and moved TT. I have the fridge on propane but just realized I am ~3 inches unlevel side to side. I am level front to back. Is that ok for overnight or do I need to level side to side?

Thanks in advance.

I was always told the more level the better... But for short times as long as the level is not "uncomfortable" for you on the inside it would be okay.

side to side leveling isn't as critical as front to back. This assumes your frig is mounted like 99.9 % of the friges.

Bowhnter----that shouldn't be a problem. Not going to hurt anything being tilted that small amount. The proof will be in the pudding in the morning as to how efficiently it worked overnight.

If it bothers you pull the trailer forward put a piece of 2x10 behind the low side wheels then back up on it. This will bring it close to level

Inches or degrees? Assuming you are looking at a radius level it is in degrees. Depending on where the fridge is in the camper, so facing the fridge, door being the front, 3 degrees side to side and 6 back to back. Short term should not be an issue.
Also, it is not how efficient the fridge operates it is damaging to the fridge.
