If the terrain allows I leave my trailer hooked when parked. If leveling requires I disconnect.

I've pulled our old 2010 Yukon, my 79 Bronco and now pull our SRX in it. Huge difference in how it pulled with the big Yukon inside compared to the little Cadillac.

My motorhome is 40', the trailer is 25 plus the tongue putting me just under 70'.

It isn't necessary to disconnect to level but in some circumstances the angle of the trailer to motorhome require it.

I got it. I was just having fun with it. I thought it was a little silly you were questioning it. Maybe yours is down on power?

Torque is what pushes us up the hill. If I am not mistaken the 450 and the 400 put out 1250 ft/lbs.

Here it is... The paint guys were supposed to color match the charcoal color, but somewhere in the Texican Spanglish translation, they color matched the black. Close enough.....
