With my Andersen WDH, itís not a problem connecting and disconnecting, so if itís for one night or more, I disconnect and move the truck. It also gives me the opportunity to fuel up nearby without the trailer on the back.

If you have a serious medical emergency it's best to call 911. If necessary car/treatment can be administered along the way.

We only stay connected if it's a 1-night stay, and we want to get on the road quickly in the morning. In that case, nor the front hybrid bed. The wife and I sleep on the dinette/sofa (respectively). Awning may or may not come out, depending on the weather.

2 more more nights? We're disconnecting. Almost guaranteed we'll need to be driving somewhere. Also, with the front bed-tenting deployed, we can't open the hatch on the SUV.

Just for the ease of walking around the trailer I would UN-hitch...especially for 5-days.

If it's just a quick overnight, I'll leave it connected. I will however lower the tongue jack just to take the weight off the truck from the night.
