I'm a newbie and I LOVE that the replacement fridge in my 76 Ford Midas has a level built into its door. Proud to say first time I drove it and parked I was spot on! I will be following this thread to try and find cheapest way of leveling. I'm going to have to live in the Midas full time...

Many/(most?) RV stove tops, (as well as, counter tops, tables and floors), are not necessarily level when the refrigerator is level.
As I said earlier, the level of the refrigerator is the most critical.
Attach bubble levels when the fridge is level.

Respectfully disagree. When my stove top is level and the eggs I am frying in the skillet do not run to one side, the refrigerator is level enough. Refrigerators do not have to be exactly perfectly level. So that is why I said I am "good to go". YMMV,

It's great that when your stove top is level that your refrigerator is "close enough" to level to satisfy you.

BTW, I didn't say, "When Ronspradley's stove top is level his fridge is not".

What I said was:
Many/(most?) RV stove tops, (as well as, counter tops, tables and floors), are not necessarily level when the refrigerator is level.

Certainly you don't/can't "disagree" with that?

On my old C, I leveled so the fridge was level fore and aft, port and starboard.
Then I put 2 bubble levels, 1 on the dash, one under my window. I leveled with four ramps.

After a while, you can tell how much you need on which corners by looking at the 2 bubbles.

Our new Class C required a re-think on leveling.
I super leveled the chassis, until our fridge was perfectly level.
I took a bubble level up front and while sitting in drivers seat found a perfect spot for it.
Now when I pull into any site I check the driver seat bubble. Then the fridge bubble. They should away match.

I too use lego type orange plastic square blocks. If you block up rear, do both tires or all four rear tires.
