imo, not a good idea to put down the tongue jack when stopping for a few hours, you will be fine. Been stopping for overnights for 30 years at many places and times. Never unhooked or let down the tongue jack. Multiple things could happen and you could put a lot of stress on the jack, but the main thing is if you forget and get in a hurry to leave and leave it down.....
imo, leave the jack up. Blocking the wheels are fine, you will not do as much damage when you forget about them and run them over the next morning when you leave.
Don't say,'it will never happen'.... one day it will.....
