I was wondering what the thoughts out there were if I wanted to spend one night in my camper still hooked to the truck because I have to move to a new site the next day would this be safe

I do it all the time . I just put the tongue jack down to take a little weight off my tow vehicle. I also disconnect the power cord from my truck so I don't drain the truck battery (I don't think you need to do that with Ford's and perhaps other truck makes.) Now, I always stay at campgrounds. Never at Wal Marts or rest areas so I don't know where you're planning to stay at to determine whether it's safe or not.

Ditto on what punkaccountant said. I'm not sure if you actually need to disconnect the 7 way cord or not but I do so. In the beginning I would stay hitched because it was a lot easier. Now I stay hitched because of choice.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
