Opening a frame

We have our new Flagstaff a frame but do not have a level spot to park it, so it is parked on a slight leaning angle. Is it ok to open it when it is not parked level just for packing purposes ? I am concerned about the weight and pressure on the roof and side walls. We plan to fix a better parking space, but until then....thanks! really pulls nicely!

"slight leaning angle." Should be no problem, but you could always get a couple 2x4 to park the low side wheel on so it is level.
If it at to much of an angle the Ice box may not work, if you do a pre cool down before camping.

When I have to open up on an unlevel (side-to-side) area, I find that I usually have to push up on the roof a bit from the inside to get the roof locks to engage. Otherwise, no problem.
