Storage on a slope

I'm looking at a nearby outside storage area for my MH and found one that seems to be OK and reasonably priced. Problem is that all the available gravel sites are unlevel, probably about a 5 degree slope (guessing).

We usually start the fridge up the night before a trip (newer Norcold 4-door).

Any problems from long term storage on this type of grade?

I would highly recommend using blocks under the wheels on a slope like you mentioned. Never lift any wheels off the ground using your jacks. It can really twist the motorhome and is not good for the suspension. After placing the blocks under the wheels, do a final level if needed with the jacks.

The Norcold service manual for my fridge (N811) specs 6 degrees max front-to-rear, 3 degrees side-to-side.

You might be able to find your manual here: http://bryantrv.com/docs.html.

IMHO, 5 degrees is too close to the spec, especially when it's just a guess.

The way we do it at home is like Neil mentioned, we put the low wheels up on blocks (making sure the entire contact area of the tire is supported by the board or whatever you are using), the do the final leveling with the levelers. I can second the frame twisting caution, too. If we don't have the blocks just right the entry door hits the frame, which indicates our frame is twisted.
