    Do vans have to be level for them to work on gas or mains?

    Believe it has to be within 5 degrees level to operate on gas, doesn't matter so much on mains :)

    Makes sense if you think of the tiny flame and the angle it has to burn at :)

    Thanks all

    Have just got our van and hooked up to the mains at home on a sloping drive and the fridge is not cooling.... There is power to it but does not seem to be cooling....

    How long have you given it as it takes time for the heater to heat up

    Needs to be reasonably level whatever the fuel is, if it's an absorption fridge.
