If I'm fairly level and especially if I'm leaving in the morning- ie
a one night stand- we stay hitched!
I do unplug the trailer to truck plug.

Any other time I unhitch and put down all 5 jacks.

For a strictly overnight stay, I don't unhook anything, just plug in shore power, water & sewer. Rarely even put the jacks down other than the front landing jacks.

What happens if you have an emergency and must use the vehicle,say to take an injured person to the hospital ?
I would be disconnected and ready.

Had that happen to us a few years ago when we were in Nashville. It was the storms that flooded out the city and the Country Music HOF. I am from SE PA so we do not get tornadoes generally... Came back to the CG and our neighbors let us know of the tornadoes in the region and ran through the tornado shelter instructions, yes they had a tornado shelter ... Kind of nervous, not going to lie. We packed up and headed out a day early... Next day the city flooded and the CG area got pounded by tornadoes.

Trailer is towable and 911 is also available and much more reliable in getting to a hospital.

Back before we all got connect to the world that was common practice. We had no cells or satellite communication.
So things have changed. My bad

And of course you know where the hospitals are in all the places you stop for the night? I would rather rely on the emt's getting me or TOWTA to the emergency room.

Prob would be in an unfamiliar area I am in. Although I usually end up searching for the nearest SO or PD and the local ER just in case. You never know what can go wrong...
