I've heard of some people using this bolt on device that allows you to remove your jack with just a twist so you can open your hatch or drop your tailgate.
It's called a "Jack-E-Up". Might be all you need to allow you to open the hatch while hooked up and traveling.

I've recently viewed videos showing how the power jack can be turned sideways to accomplish the same thing. On my to-do list to see if that's possible.
