Btw, be sure you are level before lifting the roof..... being unlevel is now I broke my lift cable. Scared the crap out of me when it came slamming down when it was halfway up...... and that is one heavy roof. Puts uneven stress on the cables.

The most important is getting the fridge level side to side (of the fridge).

For most trailers this will be the front to back of the trailer because the fridge is mounted sideways to the trailer. If the fridge is mounted otherwise, like in the rear or on a 45 then that'll change. But as long as you can stand in front of the fridge and it's level side to side of the fridge then you're ok.

That's not to say you can completely ignore the other direction. I wouldn't want to try using a fridge that's level side to side, but pitched 30 degrees front to back (again, of the fridge).

That would scare the crap out me as well. What the heck did you end up doing that day? Was the trip over?

If you want a lot of good info on pop up campers, including leveling for fridge operation, make your way over to the popup portal forums.
