Head assembly adjustment?

I had my hitch system replaced by my car dealership because of a recall. Now my popup trailer (Forest River HW277) has an eight degree slant forward and down. I will adjust my head assembly height to correct this problem. Besides making sure the bolts are tight and the height is good, is there anything else I need to know?

Assuming you had your WDH set up before, for proper weight distribution, then all you should need to do is get the WD head/ball back to the height it was before.

The typical answer when something needs to be adjusted, is that you have to go thru the measurements again. But in this case, I don't think that applies. Of course, it would not hurt to check your front wheel well measurements again...

Thank you, I do use weight distribution with spring bars. I will recheck the leveling of my camper and jeep.

Sorry for the delay in getting back. I made the adjustment with a friend’s air tool. Now my 4.5 inch off is back to around 1 inch.

Thank you again for your advice.
