Storing camper on a hill?

Are there any issues storing a camper (travel trailer) on a fairly decent hill? The camper will be parked in a way that I can't level it with the tongue jack.

Are there any kind of structural problems this may cause over the long run? When storing it in this manner should I attempt to get it "close" to level with some wood under the wheels?

the manual with my trailer (since I just bought it i've been reading it thouroughly) and it STRONGLY suggest you store the trailer level. The reason given is because of drainage - window channels, roof seams, etc are all designed to drain properly when the TT is level. Non level can cause water to backup and seep in.
