Solera Parked on 10% Slope

Does anyone know if there are any issues with operating the refrigerator or generator, or other utilities when parked on a 10% slope? This is for short term use (a couple hours) only while i prep rv for trips. I know this isn't the ideal condition but I'm hoping it is ok for short term. Thanks.

Depending on the direction of the slope and the make of the generator, the low oil sensor may decide there is not oil and refuse to allow the generator to run.

The fridge almost certainly will not work on that slope. Worse, you may possibly destroy the cooling DO NOT DO IT.

if the level bubble is at least 1/2 in the circle it probably is ok. if it's just a couple hours better to shut fridge off.

If the fridge is on the back wall, 10% slope may be OK. If it is on the side as in most motor homes, then I would cut the fridge off while on that slope. The absorption fridges that are in RVs are more susceptible to extreme tilts side to side, but not as much from front to back.
