Slide outs

Our driveway is on a slight downhill and we would love to be able to pack up our food and clothing at home before we take off on a trip. The slope is about 2* and wondering if we open the slides just about 1/4 out if that would be harmful. I know we can't run the Fridge when not level, but we can plug in the 110. I don't need to extend the slides all the way, just about 1/4-1/3. Thanks for your suggestions.

Shouldn't be a problem to take it out part way for packing.

I have to raise the front almost 1 ft. To run refrigerator. I use plastic ramps from auto parts store. I think you meant two inches. if so you can run the front tires up on a piece of 2x10 and level for all of your rev pleasure at home.

If it's just 2" it's not going to hurt anything to deploy the slides or run the fridge.

If it's comfortable to walk around in it's ok to run the fridge. Or deploy the slides.

I assumed the OP meant 2 degrees, not 2 inches. Would like clarification.

I have at least a 2 degree slope to my driveway. For 3 years I've occasionally parked it with slides out fully and fridge running. No problem👍👍

Why don't you just run the front levelers down to level out. You don't have to deploy the back levelers. My drive slopes to the left so I just run the left levelers only down to bring the MH to almost level. Does not create any issues. What's the big deal?
