As long as you place the heavier items up against the TV cab you probably won't notice any appreciable change anyway.

Does it suppose to look like that? does anyone notice that bend? Did I not do a right setup? T/T and TV are leveled.
all input welcome...
I noticed your Lynx levelers, I suggest getting some Lynx Leveler Caps. Lynxcaps.JPG

ordered mine on E-Bay, I have 3 sets of levelers and 8 caps. The caps come 4 to the box at about $16 or $17 a box. Go E-Bay or an RV supply and search 'Lynx Caps'

Can't go wrong if you follow the OEM directions: http://www.equalizerhitch.com/pdf/EQOwnersManual.pdf

Like those lynx caps. First time seeing them...

Me too, they distribute the weight all accross the leveler blocks might stop some of those punch through brakages.

I believe you should be setting up your WDH the way you plan to tow which includes full tank of fuel, wood, ice chest genny's etc. as it is adding weight to your truck which will effect the setup. It's been a few years since I set up my equalizer hitch but I believe it even says this in manual. Hope someone can verify this for you.
