Draining gutters

When y'all set up your TT do you set it up exactly level or do you leave the tongue high or low? My TT, which I assume all are different, when it is level the gutters don't drain proper, it's been hard to find at happy medium to make them work proper, just trying to get done ideas from y'all.

Exactly level.
Only when stored do I leave it unlevel.

I set up with the front a little high. This allows the A/C drainage to run off at the back and sets the front bed at a slight angle. I sleep better that way.

Slightly tongue high as stated above. Keeps the rain and AC runoff to the back.

On my 5th wheel the gutters collect trash and need to be cleaned out now and then. Easy job, just reach over the side from the roof using a small broom.

Since the gutters are tiny, it doesn't take much to clog them up.
