Does a TT have to be level ??

I was responding to Jfmf527's off topic inquiry about using his water heater. His post seems to be gone now. Not sure if it might have been moved. Maybe a moderator can move my response to his question.

The frig must be level side to side, so, if your frig is on the back wall, you should be ok. IF it is on a side wall, DO NOT USE IT on either propane or 110v.

It really doesn't matter if a refrigerator worked a certain period of time in an out-of-level condition. That's not a good test of whether one can or can't operated a refer out-of-level. Also, it's not about leaking ammonia. See the post by garbonz regarding blockage of the refer's circulation coils.

... and see OldCoot's post about "Don't do it!"

The simple answer is yes it needs to be level or very close to it to run the fridge

The TT is still not level, I will be working on that in the coming weeks. I have not tried the fridge in its current state of not being level. I though before I tried the fridge, I needed to ask the seasoned campers. Always good sound advice, info still better than any PDI from any RV super store.

It does not need to be level if you are just going to park it.

It is easier to fire things up if you do not have to to hook it up and level it or move it to a more level spot.

I level mine out just so I can check on the inside with the main slide out.

Not always. The tongue on a 30 foot plus trailer would need to be 5 or 6 feet in the air to get it level.
I have run a couple of trailers and fridges in my sloped double wide concrete driveway with no issues. And I have no option to level the driveway so I just get the front end up to a reasonable height but not to the point I am afraid of it been so high up on concrete blocks.
