leveling with tow dolly attached

Question for anyone towing with a dolly and has a MH with auto levelers, do you disconnect the toad and dolly before leveling if you are only staying one night and aren't going to use the toad?

Hello. So far, I have overnighted where the site was close to level and I just tweaked it manually to get it level.

I had a class "A" pulling a dolly. For overnites I leveled the MH easily with the dolly attached...mostly because the leveling involved the front-end more than the back. Now I pull a 5th wheel. I watch the hitch closely when leveling the six jacks manually for overnites. I usually only do the-front-to back for the fridge. Overnite the side-to-side isn't critical for the fridge. No automatic leveling with anything attached for me.

Once I detach I hit automatic button then go fetch a beer while she's dancing.

Hello, yes.
When the overnight stop is already close to level, I manual level with the dolly still attached. Manual lets me control the action. The hitch/ball angle (up, down, Lt, Rt) has never been extreme.

You can level with the toad hooked up! Same as going down a real uneven driveway. You don't unhook to go down the uneven driveway!
