With the initial setup they only put 3 washers in and the head was actually tilted up before loaded. They added 4 washers and now the head is tilted down before loading. The only downside is the bars are near impossible to put on the brackets

Latch on to the ball then use the tongue jack to raise the truck some. This will help to secure the bars. Glad to see dealer helping you make it right. Good luck out there, be safe.

Only problem is I run out of tongue jack before it's high enough. I've got to get a 6"x6" to use.

I forgot to mention your tongue jack is most likely adjustable too. Pull the pin out down by the foot, the foot has adjustment holes.

They make a cheater bar for that E2 WDH. After getting our adjusted properly, it is nearly impossible to get the bars up on the L brackets without the cheater. Part number 92-00-6000

I actually pulled it about 15 miles today. It pulls much better, still has a little sway but coming from a pop up I think Im being over sensitive.

x2 on using the tongue Jack to raise the truck rear. This takes the pressure of the truck making hitching easier. Use the cheater bar in addition to this to make it even easier.

We used to keep a 4x6 block of wood under ours. We actually cut a 4x6 into 12" long sections and used 2 under each stab Jack. We screwed little metal handles to them to make moving them about easier.

Is it true side to side sway? Sway is defined as side to side movement that increases in speed and size as it goes. This should not occur at all. A little tail wiggle is normal. This is where the rear of trailer wiggled side to side a little bit but not into other lanes and not such that it is true sway or affects handling. Or do you have porpoising which is where you have up and down bounce from front to rear like a wave? Or do you have tail wagging the dog where the traiker steers the truck? Each can be fixed but require different fixes.

After the adjustment today I don't have any porpoising at all. I wouldn't classify it as true sway and it definitely isn't the tail wagging the dog. I am used to not even knowing my pop up was back there so any movement makes me a little nervous but I'm sure as I get more accustomed to it it will be fine.
