thanks for replies guys I pulled it on to the cg as I was already hooked up and it was only 75 miles or so but before I left I raised hitch and it leveled things up .....I didn't notice any difference in pulling it but it sure looked better and the wearing front tires never crossed my mind but it sure makes sense

A tweak here and a tweak there and you may not notice it at first but over the long haul you will. Having the nose down will put more pressure on your lift bars (pushing the weight hard to the front and back of the train) and there will be more load on your front TT axle and assembly. When you are all hooked up for your next trip, measure from the ground to the under frame at the front and back of the TT. The number should be very close to the same for both measurements. Hope you had a great time.
