So when adding solar panels to a curved roof, should you level the panels?

Doesn't matter. They should be slightly tilted for rain to run off. I only tilt mine when its parked between trips.

Oh, you must consider the slope when mounting so there is air space under the panels. That will cool the panels during the hot summer and help with preventing mold.

This is how I mounted mine on our 365saq, used L brackets and just mounted them level, haven't had any issues.
