Since it was just overnight, I simply brought the front up slightly to relieve the weight on the TV and dropped the stabilizers. Obviously a quick overnight trip isn't a big deal, but would doing this for a longer term cause ill effects on either the trailer, the tow vehicle, or the weight distribution hitch? Thanks.
You did everything right

In fact, you can park on a unlevel site as long as you are not putting the slides out

On overnight stops as long as I am level, I don't bother to disconnect. But I do put down the jacks to kill the bounce.

No slides to worry about, but also can't stand sleeping at any kind of angle... lol.
