ETA - that said, I just move stuff into the fridge right before we bail for wherever we're going and turn the fridge on then.

The cooler is for beer and fish, should I catch any

It would be way cooler if we just called the fridge a cooler and the cooler a warmer. Because of course the fridge is actually the cooler because it keeps the food cooler than the cooler. Unless, of course, you put ice in the cooler, in which case in the first few minutes, it's likely cooler than the cooler .... errr .... fridge, which will eventually be cooler than the cooler because the ice runs out. But then, adding more ice to the cooler makes it cooler again, especially if the propane runs out, in which case the fridge is no longer cooler than the cooler. Would be much cooler if the fridge was called the cooler and the cooler was the ... uhhhhh .... nevermind.

You could use that same ice and put it in the fridge for the same effect and still not have to pack a cooler.

They are both just insulated boxes.

Yeah, but no thanks. I take a cooler usually anyway. The ice will get used, but I'm not putting it in the fridge. Loose - it will spill all over the place and leak, making a mess in your dry fridge. Kept in the bag, it will take up space I need for food, and still leak.. open the door and you have ice and or water coming out onto your camper floor. That space is all allocated already. Anyway, lots of viable options here... cooler, no cooler, ice, no ice... I think the issue has been addressed for the OP. My suggestion was just to pack up the fridge before you bail, and be done with it. Probably don't need 8 other options.

Since we are getting into this at multiple levels I would like to point out that the OP said they were going to pour some "cement" to put the coach on. I hope they mix some sand, gravel and water with the cement to make it concrete.

They should probably use asphalt instead.

I freeze three square gallon ice cream buckets and a 1/2 gallon milk jug and put them in the freezer and fridge around all the other food to start and by the time we get to the camp ground the fridg is cold and the ice maker ice making ice. Then you can use the blocks of ice for your beer cooler outside through out the weekend.

Well reading this post is 5 min of my life I'll never get back....but I did find dust devil to be truly insightful!

I hafta ask the OP though why don't you just put your leveling jacks down on the coach and turn on the refer a day ahead of your departure?

Insightful, yes. But what it's worth, I dunno, LOL!

As for the levelers, it sounds as if the OP's driveway is way too steep for that to be a help. The level concrete pad idea looks to be their best solution. Appears that's what they are working on.
