Fridge stopped working

Good evening
As always I turn to you guys/ladies as for advice. I leave on a trip in two days and Norco fridge stopped cooling. I am always plugged in at home into 120 outlet and I only have the fridge on. I check it every week and so far it has worked great. Now the only thing that may have caused a problem that I had to move it to the driveway since last Sunday so I can wash and wax it before the trip. The driveway is not leveled at all and I see the forward level on the coach is all the way forward. I open the outside cover and I do not hear anything working. The on light is on and the temp is always at max. I have turned it on and off. Do you think that it's stopped if it's not level correctly?

Yes. RV fridges don't like to work when out of level. In fact if it is too out of level it will warm the fridge and, possibly, damage the fridge.

Turn it off and level the coach.

Not sure what you would expect to "hear working" on you fridge when plugged into SP; the electric heating element should be doing the work. Check that you have 120 VAC at the fridge plug. The "on" light is powered by 12 VDC. Does it work on propane?

Good evening
I took out the RV and drove around and parked it in the back of house, leveled it and now works fine. Newbie mistake. Thanks for the advise.
