    20210826_111910.jpg I'm going to try and send a photo of our aliner, I'm wondering if it's was too low in the back, there's nothing in it.

    The tounge jack is still down. You have to lower it to put the weight on the tow vehicle. [:D]

    Oh, it's barely touching the street, it was only like that for a photo. Crazy you! Otherwise, what do you think?

    its not level - it ain't hard to get it level, just get a hitch-ball assembly with the correct drop. There is a HUGE amount of info on that subject on this forum and on the web.

    if its down at the rear - you are at a higher risk of dragging the rear on a roadway-driveway feature sooner or later.

    I don't see a propane tank on the tongue either. That would help a little. But yes, raise that tongue jack way off the ground and have a look. As stated above, if it is still low in the back and not level, get a hitch with a lower drop. My camper was level until I put a lift kit on the axle. I had to get another higher hitch to level it out.

    It took DH time to research and readjust ours on KODI. The dealership installed the WDH incorrectly and wasn’t leveled. Unfortunately we almost paid a mobile technician to come over until DH figured it out. DH learned how to readjust ours and now it works perfectly. We never had that issue with DiamondGirl so it was a learning experience for DH. DiamondGirl didn’t require a WDH. I’m glad he was able to do it.

    Happy Camping…[put&hy]

    Why would you have the wheel down when you are hooked up?

    We
    Moved it to get new tires, and then left it out in front of our house. We don't have a driveway, so when it was on grass in the backyard it looked like it was okay.

    Bit of advice: When hooked up, nose wheel up, stabilizers up.

    Aliner is over 10 years old. Are the torsion axle bushings tired? Looks like the tire is high in the wheel well. That will drop the back, also.

    If it's going to be out of level, it should be lower in front a smidgen.

    As has been said the front end needs to be slightly lower than the back when towing to have correct weight distribution. If its high in the front it will sway going down the road.

    Yes, definitely, we were out working on that yesterday, a good friend is stopping in to check it out with us, he has a lot more experience than us, which is none. We had a ball hitch for our Toyota sienna, now that we have a ford ranger the height difference is a bit more, so hoping the one we set aside works.

    Raise the tongue jack and stop playing around.

    Okay another question, does the hitch have to be completely on the ball, it's on the ball and it clicked when we put the pin in, it's locked chained and my husband is unsure if it good enough.
