Shouldn't be problem. My sister-in-law's does it all the time.

If motor homes are the same as trailers the fridge will run out of level but if too much could burn up

When we did the PDI in August for our Greyhawk, it was parked on the sloping entrance into the dealer's service bay. When the technician demonstrated the Bigfoot system it lifted both front wheels off the ground. I asked if that was okay and he assured me it was.

If you use a manual level and it indicates true level then you know the Leveler's are working correctly and that the slope constitutes the front wheels being off the ground. I always double check if the wheels are raised off the ground. Sometimes moving the coach either forward or backward can eliminate the concern.

No need. You can download many free level "Apps" for "smart phones" that work quite well! Happy camping!

I have done that several times but the last time I noticed the boot on one Billensten shock had a tear in it. Am waiting for dealer to get back to me after he gets to the company about repair or replacement. Enjoy your new ride and hope you catch some fish.
