I base the hitching/unhitching question on two factors:
1. Will I need the car (for shopping, touring, restaurant visit) during my stay?
2. Do I need to unhitch to get Homelet level (front to back)?
If the answer to either question is "Yes", then I unhitch.
But always remember to unplug the trailer from the car or you may find yourself unable to start the car because you have run both batteries down.
BEFORE I unhitch, I check side to side level because I need the car to pull Homelet up on the required blocking.
ALWAYS remember when you are not unhitched. It would be ugly to jump into the car to run someplace and then find out you are still attached.
Donna, thanks for giving me another reason to love my Trillium
. I just use the removable crank to turn my stabilizers down and up.
