Wow Jamie, I would never have admitted to 20,000 potential readers that I was crawling around under my trailer in the middle of the night looking for a leak I could much more easily find in the morning when daylight arrived .

I think I'm impressed.

As for all the others above, ditto to the unplug of power but leave the rest. We do this often when we are traveling and need a good nights rest.

And you bet my spouse knows how to unhook the rig. I think everyone has that responsibility, even if it's that they follow a cheat sheet in the glove box of the TV to get it done, one that they've written out while learning to do it. Spousal trips are partnerships and stuff does happen.

"D" all of the above

Hi, mostly all of the above; I have totally unhooked my trailer, totally left everything connected, and left the vehicles hooked together and lowered the tongue jack and stabilizers. But if your tow vehicle is a Ford product, you can leave the seven pin connector connected without draining your tow vehicle's battery.
