rdp not working to print on local printer

i know it has something to do with the wrong port for terminal services. The question is, is there a way to determine which port it should use or make it where it automatically finds the correct port.  What ends up happening is the user unplugs their usb printer from their laptop and then then plugs it back in when they get to their office and then when they rdp the ports change and no more printing.
Please help as this is an ongoing battle i have with the printer(s) not liking terminal services.

running windows 7 on the client side and then remoted into a windows 7 box.

Can you clarify "running windows 7 on the client side and then remoted into a windows 7 box."?

Does the user use the Windows 7 box when at the office and laptop when at home?  Where is the printer connected to?  If this is the case there is no need to unplug the printer.

If the user RDP into a machine both at home and at the office then the printer port shouldn't change because it's RDP for both sessions.
