Towing Tahoe in Towns

My husband and I just bought our first RV, a 43 ft Monaco Diplomat and will be towing a Tahoe. Nothing like starting off big. We started noticing that, while we often see RV's towing vehicles on highways, we rarely see them inside city limits. Are you guys disconnecting in order to manuver through the towns and cities through which you must drive?

We have a 45 ft Newmar and tow a Avalanche, not a big problem just have to be careful on turns and when the roads get narrow.

We try not to avoid driving through towns with dense traffic, but if we need to, the car goes along for the ride. When the traffic is tough, the difference between 45 ft and 65 ft of length is pretty much academic.
