Hi,
Anyone got any ideas on building a fridge leveller, instead of making sure the van is level, maybe just adjust up some legs or something?

cheers

I carry 2 off 150X25mm pine boards about 500 long with 2 pieces nailed to each one piece about 300 and on top of that one anout 150 long to give a step effect . Hope you are still with me. I use these to level the vehicle by guseeing which wheels need to be raised and by how much and driving on to the boards
Hope this is of some help

G'day Craig, you've got my reply, but I'll pop it in here for any else may be interested.

I built a square stand out of pine and painted it. I drilled 12mm holes into the base of the legs and hammered in threaded nuts that you can buy from Bunnings. (The kind that is on the bottom of lounges and beds. The I simply screwed in the feet, which are about 50mm adjustable.

Whole thing cost less than $20 and took maybe an hour of fun with the power tools. VERY accurate as adjustment is fine, very balanced as each foot is independant rather than just adjusting a whole side up and down and getting the wobbles in a corner and also has the nice benefit of lifting the fridge a foot off the ground to make it a little less of a bend to the bottom.

There's a pretty ordinary picture of it in my profile.

Cheers,

Smocky.

A 3-way absorbtion fridge Vince, one that runs on gas. It needs to be level (VERY) to operate at its best. If you have a compressor (Engel, Waeco etc) then it doesn't matter.

Cheers.

Thanks Smocky I was starting to worry what with people wanting to ban my bull bar and charge me xtra to park, I'm at the end of my chain and barking mad. Think I need a week in the bush.

I know what you mean. AND, think of all that poisonous gas your gas guzzling behemoth is spewing into the lungs of our children you inconsiderate terrorist :-)

I've had enough of that topic for a while and am currently looking for a weekend destination in the Blue Mountains. Any suggestions? Haven't seen the Glow Worm Tunnel at Newnes yet and the kids would love that.

Cheers,

Jason.

you can buy feet? if you can call them that which have a threaded hole in centre to take some threaded rod with a small plate at the end similar to what is used on your domestic fridge. Just poprivet to the underside of fridge, slip in threaded rod and adjust

i got my lot from bunnings last time in the pressed metal latch,slide catch etc area of the store..mosy good hardware shops will also have them
