Question Leveling when Fridge is off

I was always under the impression that when you park your coach it should be level for the good of the refrigerator. Even if your refrigerator is off you could cause damage if you stored it unleveled.
So I have my coach leveled while I'm home using my auto levelers. My site is pretty level but s probably 2 " lower in the front. Someone mentioned that it's not recommended to have your coach up on levelers because it could weaken the levelers over time. So what's the deal?

No need to worry about level when fridge is off.........Your hyd. leveler's are big cylinder's made to hold/support your RV........ using them or having the weight of your Coach on them will not weaken them, the only thing that can happen with any hydraulic cylinder, is the seals failing.......
You will not hurt them by using them.
