okay we've got a spirit level in place now that it's important to level your fridge effort to work at its optimum level some fridges aren't very tilt tolerant if you've got a threeway fridge ie got vents on the outside they're not very tilt tolerant so it's a good idea to get them level the other issue is your hob obviously if you've got pan sliding around it can be a bit dangerous so that's another reason to level it also your washroom not all washrooms have twin drain holes so you tend to get water collecting in the shower tray this particular one does but a lot of older vans we only have one drain point so for these reasons it's a good idea to get it level and if your bed's not flat then obviously you're on the danger of falling off it

right we're going to buck it down now keeping an eye on our level bubble and then try and get it level
