I have camped more than once leaving the camper hitched to the TV. All I did was unplug the camper from the TV. It makes for a lot less work on the day you leave. If there is an emergency all I have to do is crank the jacks up and put the plug back in.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

I always unhitch. I got extremely sick camping one night and had to wake up the man to take my son to our friends TT and me to the ER. This was about 3 am, so he was sound asleep. If I would have had to get him up and him have unhitch the trailer, get the kid to the our friends, and get me to the ER in a strange town, he would have not been very happy and then I would have been mad and sick.

It only takes a few minutes to unhitch when you are unloading, but in the middle of the night, when you are half asleep it takes longer.

I generally unhitch since I hook up my grill to one of the tanks in the front. Feel better when the truck is not too close to the grill. If I were to stay hitched I would unplug electric cable from truck.
