Level or Not

I've been winterizing my trailers for many years, but am just now stuck with a question. Do you leave your trailer level or raise the tongue to change the flow of melting snow/ice off the back?

Mine was inside when we stored ours. I would leave it slightly angled so water and ice melt can run off. JMHO

No real reason for keeping it level, unless you were using the fridge. I too like above would have it so water would run off.

Shouldn't matter if you have a rounded roof. 99% of the TT'/5'ers do.

Even with barrel roofs, gutter trims are never put on right. Even seen one with the ends higher than the middle. So yes, pitch it.

Sound advice!
I wish someone would have given me that advice 12 years ago, (when I had my first mechanical problem with my then new to me RV).
That sure would have saved me from a lot of expense, (and heartache).

So what happens when you camp for several days and it rains with a leveled TT?

With that one? Water stands in the gutter.

Mine is parked next to the house with shore power, an electric space heater, an Adco cover, and it's leveled. The single slide is in. I go out about once a week to check for leaks. I'd rather find it here at home than wait until I'm on vacation somewhere in another state.
