Travel Trailer towing & storage

Hello all,

I have been going to the Alabama football games this year and taking my 26ft travel trailer. I have just been leaving it on the tow hitch of my 2003 Expedition the whole time. Is this fine to do that? It is just easier than unhooking it on Monday and hooking it back up on Thursday. I am worried about the struts wearing out.

I would put the tongue down on a block and lift the rear end up a couple of inches. Won't hurt the hitch and will get a big sigh of relief form the rear

If you're using equalizer bars to take the weight off of the TV, you shouldn't have to do anything assuming you're reasonably level.
