If it is just for an over night stay we leave ours hooked up. I do attempt to level as best as possible. But usually do not spend that much time as long is it is somewhat level. As long as it feels somewhat comfortable to walk around in your refrig, should be fine. The only time I have ever heard of someone having trouble with the frig is when they parked on someone's significantly pitched. But they thought it wouldn't be a problem for one night but it was.

Same as the above here- I will stay hitched up if we do not have anywhere to go and we're relatively level to start. I do level side to side for comfort. I also put down landing gear/stabilizers for comfort/movement inside reasons.

When I stop for one night if I can get it close to level. I just let the jacks down and climb in.

If rig and truck will fit and I am close to level I'll not unhook. If in a CG I will put the landing gear down to help stabilize, but in a Walmart I don't.

i try n find a place taht is nearly level if possible.....then i just usually run the stabilizers down to snug and call it a only takes seconds with the electric jacks....if its in the summer and a wally lot or tx roadside park (we have NICE ones in tx) ill grab the genny cord out of the bed of the truck and plug in real quick for a/c....sleeping in a camper in summer with 100+ temps all day and lucky to get in the 90's at night is an excercise in

but NO....for just one night i dont bother to unhook the truck...
