ID:	32703Is the steer axle too low with WDH?
    Itís hard to find a level area to adjust the shank. Whenever I back the hitch to the coupler and level trailer itís seems I need to raise it like 5in. Then I hook it up and every looks even. The shank was set up for a Chevy Colorado now itís on a 2021 f150. It would seem the Colorado sits lower so wouldnít I be lowering the shank instead? I canít figure it out. It drive ok I guess. Nothing really to compare it. A little moment up and down over bumps. Was windy today a little movement side to side at 60mph. I had to redo the L bracket because dealer messed it up. They set back the brackets at 27in instead of 32in. Also I canít get the brakes to lock up at 20mph like the manual say. Should I keep it gain 10. Doesnít fell bad at that. Smooth.

    It would help us to help you if we know what trailer you have and wdh. Maybe update your signature so you don't have to repeat. Your steer could use a little but your tongue weight is way to low. Do you have you battery and lp tanks installed. Its best to have it at around 12.5%.

    Itís in now. Everything is loaded for trip except water tanks which I donít need. . I have everything stored in the front pass though. There really isnít any else to bring with. I can add some bottled water, grill and more tools. The steer axle is back to even and the rear is down 2in from no load.
    I donít know how to add it to the signature on iPhone Tapatalk.

    I'm not to familiar with that wdh but it is similar to mine. Behind the hitch ball is a big bolt with washers. Adding washers will transfer weight to the front of the TV. Its like a micro adjustment.

    When all hooked up is the tt noise high? If so its best to have it a little noise low so I'd lower the ball. As for braking, your brakes might need to be adjusted. At gain of 10 my wheels won't lock up either when only using the brake slider but I suspect mine need to be adjusted also.

    Everything is level when hooked up. Thereís 6 washers on it now. But who know for sure if the bakes have to lock up on pavement. They might not. Iím just gonna take it to a hitch shop. No point in guessing. To me the numbers look ok but thatís me not a pro-installer.

    It is almost a guarantee that the hitch head will need to be raised on the shank vs a Colorado but only you would know

    You need to get everything to a flat area. If you donít have one , go to one. Walmart parking lot for example

    I canít get an exact measurement because of ice but your top of ball when on your truck needs to be roughly 23 inches from what I can guess
    What is yours?

    21.5 with out trailer on it. So wouldnít the shank need to be lowered on the new truck if the Colorado sat lower? I canít figure that one out. When I level the trailer on the A-frame Its different then when I put the 3ft level inside. When everything is hooked up itís all looks level. The front end is still 38in where it was before load. Do those weight numbers indicate anything?

    Measure the frame in the back and make it the same in the front
    You need to raise the head on the shank so the top of the ball is to the top of the coupler on the trailer or as close as possible

    Do you not have the instructions for the equalizer e4?
