I live in Minnesota and I leave my TT leveled side to side, but I lift the front up about 1 degree above level to help drain off towards the back.
There really is no rule which is best. If you are planning to use it or run appliances during this time, you should leave it as level as possible.

Agreed as long as you dont run the fridge it does not matter... Slideouts IN... and I leave a slight tilt so it drains off on the road side and elevated so it drains to the back... but that is where I want the runoff to go...

When we lived in North Idaho every winter we would always set the trailer up level so we could move into it if the power went out for an extended time. Our generator would run the trailer just fine but not the house.

I have my Class C parked on an RV pad behind my house. The pad was designed so there would be a slight grade so water will flow off the rear of the roof.
