Pull through parking and Toad

Do you unhook your Toad if you park overnight and need to use your levelers...?

Ditto, as long as it is not interfering with any traffic.

Why do you bother to drag a toad around if you never disconnect it?

No, I think your post was concern over the towbar movement at the motorhome end, right?
I have been using Blue Ox towbars since 2005 and never had a problem leaving the toad hooked up AND leveling the motorhome.

No that is why you get a pull through so you do not have to unhitch

Tow my vehicle on a trailer, I do not unhook, I do however unload IF I am going to need the vehicle before the morning. Never had any problem.

Nope, not unless I need to use it for some reason. We very seldom spend an overnight in an RV park. Usually a WalMart, rest area, truck stop, open field or a wide spot in the road. (With permission, where applicable, of course)

When towing the Honda CRV I make it a point to level the MH first and then prepare the CRV and Brake Buddy for the night. That way the CRV is free to move with the MH as it levels. In the morning the CRV and Brake Buddy are setup to allow it to move before and when the MH jacks are retracted.
With the, new to me, Jeep Liberty I won't have to be as concerned as the only thing that will need to be put to bed for the night is the Brake Buddy. The Jeep can be left in tow mode and will move in concert with the MH.
