I had stored my Kiwi 23b nose up at first. This year with heavier rain and snow it caused water to puddle in the area of our driveway and house foundation. To shift the water to the other end of the driveway I oriented the 23b nose down.

I did add a front gutter extension using a piece of vinyl siding J channel to extend out from the trailer body. I like the nose down storage better.

I have the ability to more easily lower the front than I do raise it (needs blocking) so another plus has been more angle for less ponding on the roof. With nose high storage I did get a bit of ponding.

One of the benefits of EPDM roof membrane is that, unlike traditional built up roofing, ponding is not really a problem as to the actual membrane material. I would still suggest that you avoid ponding because the freeze thaw cycles of the puddle may work to degrade seals (A/C unit) or applied sealant areas which it contacts.

We haven't used the refrigerator in the driveway, but will re-level if we do. vic

Keep ours nose down as that is the way yard drainage is. Stays that way whenever at home. Not unlevel enough to affect the fridge.

Ice buildup is also minimal as any melt runs off quickly even under the ice. Keeps the cover more clear of snow all winter also.

Anytime I park any trailer whether a camper or a utility trailer or garden cart, I pitch it so water runs out/off of it. Just good practice.

While camping I pitch the trailer to the rear drivers side corner to keep the runoff away from our living area.
