Staying one night, so you un-hitch?

We will be taking a few days to get to our end point. Now, for a one night stop do you leave your TT connected to the truck and just hook up water/sewer/electric? Any problem with that??

Yes I do that with no issues, as long as you have enough space for trailer and truck in campground space without encroaching on the campground road......

I've done that a couple times myself already. I do usually put the tongue jack and stabilizers down just to stabilize it and take weight off of the TV, but I leave the hitch completely connected to make life easier.

No problem as long as the site is level enough to put out the slideout and for running the refrigerator. I agree with klarowe - I'd touch down the tongue jack (for stability and to unload the truck slightly for the night) and use the TT's stabilizers.

If you have a hybrid and SUV combo, you might not be able to get the front bunk down but with a regular TT you'd have no problem setting up that way.

Usually ask for a pull thru that is big enough for the truck without unhooking, unhook the umbilical cord, run the landing jacks down, hook up water, electric, sewer and hit the sack, or if it's late and we're going to get an early start, hook nothing up.

Normally no problem. The front bunk of the Roo clears the tailgate on the truck, so we set up as normal on a pull-through and just put the tongue jack down enough to take a little weight of the tv. Saves a ton of time on one night stops.

Only time we had a problem was a stop in Flint, Mi where the site was so unlevel front to back that we had to unhook. Had to put the tongue just about on the ground to keep from rolling out of the bed...
