Towing and stopping for the night

When pulling a toad and landing for the night, do you use your levelers with the toad attached?

I always level with my leveling jacks, (whether the toad is connected or not).
Even when only stopping for only a few minutes.

BTW, methinks that is one reason my 20 year old Norcold 682 absorption refiderator is sill working perfectly.

I use the levelers with the toad attached.

Having said that, ever since we switched to the residential fridge, I hardly ever using the leveling jacks any more. If we're parked for a while I might, but the site has to be quite a bit off level to bother.

Agree - rarely do anything more than plug in and connect water....

And as long as my head is not lower than my feet in the bed... I'm good

And funny how you can feel what may be only 1 degree off !

Are you talking about a campground or Walmart?

Sure do, the only exception I can recall is a site with a very
steep entry, since you might be essentially pulling the car
towards the MH while lifting the rear to level it, since the
car would be essentially down hill from the site.

I do not disconnect when stopping for the night while traveling, unless there is a need to drive the toad. (-:

I leave the toad connected when in an over night pull through and I do level the coach with the toad attached. Even if I was going to use the toad I generally set up and level before disconnecting. The only exception if the park or if the site requires you to disconnect before pulling in.

Have you thought about what happens between the coach and the toad when entering a driveway? Leveling the coach would not be anywhere near those angles.

Sleep well...

macandphyl
in that case the car IS pulled very slightly uphill , (but no closer to the MH). home).
When you raise the jacks, (and lower the MH), the car is pushed very slightly back up the hill.
