Operating Genny on Incline

I'll be working in my RV next week parked in front of my house. The RV will be parked on about a 10 degree incline. Will it hurt to run the genny at this angle? It's an Onan 10KW. Thanks.

The only thing I would worry about is the oil not reaching the pickup tube in the oil pan but I would think it would have to hit angles far greater than 10 degrees.

I used mine at a 10% grade or more for 4 days straight and it didn't hurt it that I know of. It still works just fine.

I would be more concerned about my refrigerator unless it was a residential type. 10 degrees seems like too much to me. Onan should be OK.
