Huh?? I ddn't think he's using a protractor, I guess its not too bad at whatever angle his is at, thats the reason for the Dometic article. So how much taper is 3 deg over 30' or is it the 3' of the reefer base ie the effective lengh? High Scool Trig was so long ago I've reused those memory cells three times over! I guess without calculating the coils might be out of level 1/8". Dometic is trying to tell us don't worry bout it.

And the answer to your 36" question is 1.88"

Tan 3 x 36"=1.88"
Which means the top of the frig would be tilted 1.88 off vertical and the boiler wouldn't be that much out of level. But, without knowing the width of the burner, it is just swag.

Don't worry 'bout it. They sell'em all the time!

If you stand up and you feel like you are at an angle, you probably are. That's what blocks and boards are for. Play it safe and get on the level.

Now if money is no object....

Yes, the "universal" language.
Well, at least that's what my Math teacher told me.

Good one Herk, my hs trig teacher called all the kids that didn't take advanced algebra and trig, "poor dumb civilians" and that was back in 1954.

For the numbers

Pin to bumper 28 feet......Fridge center about 13 feet from pin....harbor freight magnetic protrator on bumper with needle settling between 4-5 degrees....unit is not at all uncomfortable to be in under this condition....
fridge cools same a when level....5 foot level on entry steps at rear of trailer raised to bring bubble to center maybe inch and half....so thinking
around 8 inches difference between pin and rear bumper....would think half way point would be only about 4 inches lower than pin .....fridge on right side so not exactly sure how much slope from left side of fridge (front) to right side of fridge rear......thinking rear of fridge 1 inch lower than front at max......maybe this will help solve the math......next time I park in that spot will put a level at bottom of fridge and see the exact difference.....as always thanks so much to all the great input....and I had never thought about the side to side and front to rear in reference to where the fridge is......
