So I'm currently loading my combination GE into the uhaul to get it home. I didn't realize it wouldn't fit standing up, which is how I wanted to transport it. I am forced to load it on its side now, with a last minute beanbag purchase keeping it up at an angle to help keep oil out of the coolant lines. With that being said, I am confused over which side is best to lay it on. What is correct? I have attached a photo. I am thinking I have it backwards, and that I need to lay it down on the opposite side...

When possible its best to put the suction side of the compressor down so if any oil runs out of it it will be sucked back in on startup. But I know I've moved some with the suction side up and I've not had any operating problem when turning on after. Leave it upright at least a few hours or better overnight before turning on.
