I just moved a 'frige and as we were putting it in the truck the guy
said not to lay it down. Well, we didn't have much of a choice. It was
horizontal less than an hour. It will stay in our present garage
(upright) for 2 days, then another 15 minute horizontal trip. Have we
blown it? We moving it to our new house where it will stay unplugged
for a couple of weeks. Will that be enough time to let everything
Thanks in advance.
This has been discussed in the past. While upright is the best method,
laying down is 99% OK as long as you set it upright and let the oil drain
back from the system. IIRC, 24 hours was deemed a good amount of time.

If you don't want to remove the paper backing & patch the wall.
1. Remove the vinyl face.
2. Prime the backing with Draw-Tite or Gardz. It's a water based
product. (it may bubble up in places but will likely suck down when it
dries.) Allow to dry overnight.
3. Skim coat.
4. Prime over the skim coat with above.
