storms etc..

With all the storms blowing around, just wondered what others do in their TT's?
Do you think it is better to stay hooked up to your TV when you know it is going to blow hard or go ahead and unhook at the campground?
I haven't really been through it yet, but my logical mind is telling me it is better to try and stay hooked up to the truck.

Your opinions?

ive been camping in high wind and all the camper did was rock. to me just depends on the weather. if there was a chance of a tornado I would want to be unhooked incase you had to drive to safety.

I've been in campgrounds in Michigan State Parks during tornado warnings and you don't get the choice. You're evacuated to their tornado structure. Camper stays where it is.

Every high wind we have go through here the campground staff came around telling all of high wind warning but usually heard before we were warned. Put awning in pick up anything that could blow around . Towing in high wind is not a good idea, after having someone flip a trailer on the local bridge to Canada they shut the bridge down, to trailers, when ever high winds come up.

Got stuck in some 60+ mph winds, wide open by a lake in northern Kansas last summer. We were on full hookups so I filled the fresh and three 42g grey tanks, adding 1300lbs of ballast. We felt very safe after dealing with 4 nights of severe thunderstorm warnings right on us...

That's a good idea filling the tanks for extra ballast, would work good in my trailer total of 4 tanks 2 grey 1 black and 1 fresh spread from front to back.
