    Tongue and trailer not level with each other

    On our 2021 2670MK, the tongue and trailer are not level with each other. When the trailer is level, the front of the tongue is higher and when the tongue is level, the floor of the trailer is showing low in the front. Is this anything to be concerned about? And I assume we go by the trailer being level for optimal towing position?

    Are you referring to when the trailer is hooked up to your tow vehicle? If so, look at the manual for your load leveling hitch to verify proper set up. They are all a little different so the manual is your best resource.

    Thanks for the reply, Bradnailer. My base question refers to when the trailer is sitting unhitched. When the floor is level the tongue is tip high. When the A-frame shows as level, the trailer is low in the front. So the two together make a mini-V (it's not anywhere near that severe, but ultimately that's the shape). Our previous trailer was closer to level between the two. When hooked to the TV, I'm assuming I go by the level of the trailer and not the tongue.

    Perhaps you should visit with Grand Design. My thought is the tongue should be level when the trailer is level.

    That doesn't sound right to me.

    determine level by putting the level inside on the floor of the trailer. I would expect the frame to be relatively close if you have the trailer level based on the interior floor. I always like to flip my level 180' to ensure that the level is reading accurately as well. A few times I ended up chasing my tail because I had an out of level...level!

    I use a circle level along with the levels I have on the trailer. Put it in the fridge to make sure it's not out of level so as to make sure the fridge works properly. The best indicator I have though is Marcy. By the next morning if the trailer is not level I will hear about it from Marcy.

    Is the trailer parked on level ground ?

    Yeah, I can feel being the least bit off level way to easily.. and I don't like sleeping with my head at the foot of the bed.

    My old 2600 RB had the same characteristic. The tongue was not on the same plane as the frame and floor.
    I found this out after the first couple of trips and started using the "garage" floor to make the trailer level. That was on the same plane as the frame.
