Getting ready for Juno

I went out and lowered the trailer front so that snow and or liquid will run off the front vs the rear of the trailer to keep it off the back window. Does anyone else keep their unit off level due to weather? I realize it is not ideal for the torsion system but it is only temporary.
I also covered the wheels with protection.

I used to tip the old conventional trailer, the front of it was a fold out bunk bed so I'd tilt it to the rear to limit the water going over the bunk door. With the 5.0. it's got a natural pitch to the rear.

Jim toss an old piece of 1/2" plywood or sometime down under the back wheels, if your worried about the suspension.

Well, it wouldn't bother the suspension on my 17, however we still have better than a month before any liquid will be running off the trailer. 15°F outside as I type!
