Do you mean RV Companion Free?

I couldn't find a app, RVC, but did find several 'level tool' apps. I am so amazed by all the things that can be done on iPhone.

Has anyone ever heard leveling your camper by leveling your fridge?

While researching ways to make my fridge work better I found a recommendation of using a torpedo level in the freezer to use as guide for mounting outside bubble levelers.

Yes, you are correct. It has several other items ie To Do, Camps, Trip Log, etc.

After I initially calibrated, I leveled the trailer using the freezer surface. I then found a spot on the floor, near the door, that matched the readings & I now use that location. Don't want to be opening fridge all the time, but that is what is really critical.

You are correct. This is from Dometic:

Caution
Do not park your RV on a slope for a longer period of
time. Absorption refrigerators use a gravity-flow system.
Being on an angle of more than a couple of degrees for extended
periods of time stops the refrigeration and might
cause damage to the cooling unit.

Also explained here:
