Took my trailer to the dealer this morning & they remedied the WDH issues I was having. Things look way better now, & look proper as well.

Good to know. You know we're going to ask for pictures. OK, I can do without pictures but am curious how many links you have leftover after connecting to the hooks/saddles.

I now have 5 chains left over, they said 6 in use is the minimum you should have, which I have now. The bars are now pretty much level when tensioned & there's tons of room between the end of the bars & trailer frame. The vertical chain angle is just slightly off, but within the angle allowed. They raised the hitch up the shank 2 holes, & added a washer. The TT rides level now & the TV is 1/2" higher in the front & just under 2" lower in the rear then when empty. It handled nicely on the highway too.

I have limited experenice in this area but in the pictures it didn't look like it was set up right to me. I've never counted how many links I have in use but I will next time I hitch up. I just know how many leftover links there are for my setup.

Are you still able to lift the handles up easily by hand? Or do you now use the cheater bar?

I need the bar & take the weight off with the jack now, which makes it easier. They modified the chain brackets to fit beside the battery box so I was able to keep the 2 six volt batteries as well.

The chain angle after the dealer modified the lift brackets. Looks alot better to me.

It doesn't sway at all. Just once in the wind, but was minor.
