Frig question

Currently my Frig in my RV is not working. I am planning to replace, but before I do, I need some clarification. I have heard the Frig will not work if not on a level surface, that I understand. My question is when not in use, does it matter if the RV is parked on a slight incline, like in my driveway?

I've always been told to let it sit 'level' for 24hrs after it's been tipped before plugging in. But that is usually only if it's practically laid on its side. I wouldn't think the slope of a hill would hurt it.

Off level when not in use is not a problem.

Refrigerator project

A way to avoid the hassle of dealing with heating units in 2 or 3 way fridges being level or not, replace it with a household unit.
96 HR Dometic went out, cost to replace cooling system $1400, replace 3 way unit, $1800. Replace with apartment size household which by the way has larger cu ft. than 3 way and the same outside dementions, $320 at HD..
When not traveling, on shore power, while traveling it's off until noon when I start the genset for an hour for lunch. Check temp, 8am 36 degrees, noon when I start genset, 41 degrees. Freezer never gets over 5 above.
At that cost difference I can replace the fridge 5-6 times if needed before I surpass the 3 way cost of one.
A lot of people are doing this with great success, a lot of people don't like it. But there is an alternative.
