The newer fridges are supposed to have more tolerance based on larger tubing that offsets somewhat the pooling of the liquid if you are off level. I've often heard the term that if the level of the trailer is uncomfortable for you inside, then it's bad for the fridge. I'm old school and I level my trailer as well as I did back in the early 80's. It might be overkill but that makes everything work better, cabinet doors, drains in the sink and shower, and the milk in my cereal bowl......

We have a fresh Dometic, factory says, "the fridge will work at a level that is comfortable for living inside". Not so, twice we've felt comfy and have had the fridge go warm. The cool (pun intended) thing about the new ones is you shut the fridge down, defrost, leave the freezer and main door partially open overnight and you're back in business. Everyone should have a el cheapo thermometer inside.

Perhaps a little paranoia, but we bring 4 gel packs and put them in the freezer in case things fail. We have a cooler too and can store things in there for a short while and it's useful when we take the truck to the supermarket for cold and frozen things.
