Whilst on the road the fridge will move through 4 planes, so no worries there, the liquids keep mixed. When parked for any length of time if its off level its better to switch the fridge off if it cant be levelled. It takes time for the liquids to separate out when off level, but it does happen over time, and fridges are expensive to replace.
