Winnegard Pathway X1 Window mount-photo

Just received my Winnegard window mount and when mounted on the cab window, it's at a larger angle from level. The dish instructions say to try and get the dish level or within 3˚. This isn't 3˚, will the dish just compensate while searching for satellites?
I would test it, but it's all hooked up, on leveling blocks and up against a tall hedge on the south side. This was put on the north side window for the photo.

FYI-not for Class C cab windows

After much research and discussion with techs at Winegard, I have returned the mount to Amazon. Seems there needs to be clear space above the antenna and the cabover blocks it. Plus the angle at which the antenna sits will prevent the antenna from finding all the satellites for reception.
However, the mount kit does come with 2 brackets that can be mounted with screws to the sides that will allow the antenna to be temporarily hooked on. Not what I wanted to do.
