Took the trailer to the in-laws for a day and parked it in their drive, there is a little slope and I’m maxed out on height from my jack boards. I have a 4ft level that shows I’m 1/8-1/4 bubble high back to front, is that too far off for the fridge?


My phone is showing 1 degree off for what that’s worth.


I would post a pic of the level and bubble but I don’t know how.

Pieces of 2x6 or 2x8 nailed together can be used for extra height.

I appreciate the feedback, best I can tell is the front needs to come up another 7/8-1”. I’ll more cut more boards for next time.

Well within the margin of error. When we are summer camping, I'll intentionally leave it an inch out of level to the side and to either front or back to encourage AC condensation to drip to one particular corner. I find that if I don't take that into account, it will always drip off the least favorable corner onto me!

Same here. It is amazing to me how water which seeks the path of least resistance can go uphill to dump itself on my outdoor kitchen.

side to side you have more leeway than front to back, assuming fridge is on the side wall. The fridge has more leeway front to back than on sides.. anything under 3 degrees is fine.
