While I have not been told to remove the hitch, we were instructed to remove/fold our towing mirrows when driving without the trailer inside Yellowstone.

Makes sense, the Yellowstone Park roads are tight!

I would rather lug around a full 30 lb propane bottle as deal with an awkward hitch head
I fully understand about elderly people having a problem removing the hitch. I happen to be 75, and have been lucky to be in fairly good shape so far on this life's journey.
When age does catch up to me, I'll either quit towing or switch to a motorhome, and I'm not looking forward to that time.
