I would add that the fridge should be as level as you can possibly get as your fridge is located on the side. While there is no compressor, the cooling is done by an evaporative process. Liquid is boiled by heat (either from an AC electric heating element or from burning propane) That gas then goes up riser tubes to the top of the freezer section and condenses into a liquid which has to run back down the tubes into the boiler reservoir.
If the camper is tilted to the side (as in your photo) and the fridge is located on the side (as in your photo) liquid can pool in the tubes effectively reducing the diameter of the tube and gas flow. This will not allow proper cooling and your fridge temp will be much higher than it would be if it was more level.
In an extreme out of level situation (about like your photo) the tubes could be blocked completely and the cooling could be effectively stopped. Worse yet, pressure can build in the boiler cracking the reservoir and causing a very expensive repair.
