I think the most important thing is if you do stop and level up with the jacks -- Don't take the car off the dolly with the MH jacks deployed. If you have to take the car off the dolly, then do it before you put the jacks down!
We regularly level without unhooking for a short overnight stay.

I join with the others who do not unhook, for overnite. I tow 4 down with blue ox and the one time rear jacks extended the tow bar just raised a little, no problem. I only level if fridge will be more than 30 % out of level, thats just me.

I always level for three reasons. It takes the "jiggle" out of the coach when walking around. And more importantly, it avoids frame twist when sliding the slides. And also for the frig. I may be OC but it only takes a few minutes. I like to level manually. I simply lower each jack until I feel the bump. Then I put my 3' level on the floor and adjust as needed, check it in the front and rear of the coach and then slide the slides. I have calibrated the auto setting but it always lifts the coach higher than needed. So I go manual instead.
