I would leave it off the whole way.
I would expect to average less than 10 mpg round trip.
Check your coolant level.
Make sure you have good airflow in to the radiator.
Hose off any bugs and any peeling paint from the condenser/ radiator / Trans cooler.
Check your tires. Check your spare tires.
Check your spring U-bolts and shackle bolts.
Grease your prop shaft. Check the U-Joints for play.
When did you last service the rear end?
You say it is a 2003 Durango. Did that have the disk brakes in the rear?
My 02 has drums. I would say you should adjust the drum brakes before you go.
Does your trailer have brakes?
