By your measurement
1 1/8th inch rise per 2 feet of run
Just over 12' wheelbase which is slightly more than 6 times your levels length.
so six times your 1 1/8 inch equals,,,,, about 7 inches.

Most absorption fridges will work properly as long as they are within 2 degrees of level side to side and 4 degrees of level front to back.

looking at the fridge : New models of RV fridges are more forgiving, with proper operation within 3 degrees of level side to side and 6 degrees of level front to back.

If your rv is 22 feet long, it would have to be approx. 12-14" off level in order to be more than 3 degrees off level.

Even though I have a 4 way set of levels inside my MH, if I pull into a rest area for an hour to three, if its feels level im ok with it.
If my doors are not slamming closed and my sinks are draining, I have been fine with that degree of being level my entire rv life, never having to replace an rv fridge.

For parking at home and depending on your situation, created large concrete ramp/platform to back up the vehicle to level it out. More complex but long term solution; bags of concrete, rebar, mix it yourself, wheelbarrow. For campsites used 2x6 different sizes to put under the tires if you must. Plastic ones are not very good.
