Unhook Ford Fiesta toad from Motorhome for one night

On a long trip and towing a Ford Fiesta with a Class C Motorhome. Should I disconnect the Blue Ox tow bar when I only stay one night at some campgrounds. Also if I leave it connected and the site is not level, has anyone used their automatic levelers while still connected to their toad. I appreciate any feedback. I normally disconnect, but this is our first long trip with the toad.

Leave it connected. The ball/articulating end on the MH will allow for leveling the MH. As will the attachments at the car.

No need to worry.

When we had a motor home with levelers I did not disconnect our Ford Edge when we stopped overnight and never had any issues. As Dodge Guy said the ball and articulating allowed the necessary movement. I might disconnect if I had a really screwed up site but it would have to be bad enough I'd probably refuse the site first.

I donít disconnect our Fiesta from our class C for overnight stops, even if using hydraulic levelers. However, our sites are generally quite level.
