Remove all the way and store in bed of truck or TT. That way I can take TV out and about and don't worry about it. Part of the campground setup and tear down list.

I like what you did here. Looks really nice and neat. Would you mind sending me a few more pictures of the set up.

I had not taken many photos of this but here is one more that I had on hand. The tube is really meant to be for the sewer hose. Each end already has the mounting holes and I just mounted this up to the aluminum frame at that top of the storage bay with some bolts.

It really was a fairly easy job.

For those of you wondering about 'keyed hitch pins' (picture is worth a 1,000 words). For sure, you don't want ANY of your hitch bits-an-pieces to take a walk while you are asleep ~ kinda makes it tough to leave the campground!

I painted my a very bright ( YELLOW) So I Do not walk into it on the back of the truck
I leave it on the truck, Use it to get the boat off the roof.
Bars go in the front storage .
I do sometimes leave then on the frame, It does depend where you are.

I leave the WDH attached to my truck. The bars I place in one of the storage compartments. I have never had a problem walking into my hitch...

I stow everything in the front storage compartment. The street side of my front storage is used exclusively for travel tackle and hardware (hitches, bars, extra grease, manual crank handles, tools, etc. I'm planning to install some PVC to keep the bars up off the floor and clean. Right now I just use some carpet remnants that were left in the trailer.

I used to keep the hitch head locked in it's receiver on the truck, but it rattles around back there without a load on it and makes a ruckus. Never had a problem walking into it; I've walked into enough hitch heads in my life to know about giving the rear end of a truck a wide berth when walking around, now it's just habit...

Once we set up we don't typically move the truck but even when we do make a trip from the campground I can't hear my Blue Ox from inside the truck..
