Every RV owner should know that levelling your RV is an important first step when setting up your campsite.
If your RV is stationary at an angle or unlevelled, the following risks can occur:
- Loose items rolling off benches.
- RV fridge not operating properly or may stop prematurely.
This occurs because the refrigerant (i.e. propane or ammonia) will not circulate properly within the fridge. In fact, an RV fridge does not pump coolant like a standard electric fridge at home. It relies on gravity to move the propane or ammonia which is used to cool the appliance.
- Shower and sink not draining properly.
- Plumbing problems leading to inefficient water flow.
