Hitch Setup

I want to readjust mu trailer hitch, it looks loke my trailer is sloped towards the front abit, and my chains are connected to the first (top) link. I pulls ok and i have no problem with it at all, no sway or anything. But it bothers me that the trailer is not totally level, Is there a link that i go to do it properly. My driveway is not level so i think i will my leveling blocks for the front of the truck, the trailer is level where it sits now, I have read where the ball should be 1 inch avove the coupler height and some say 1 inch below, with that i am a little confused, I have a 19 foot shamrock hybrid with a f-150 ford 6 and half foot box with ext cab.
Thanks Kevin
I did look on here for smiliar posts but cound'nt find anything

I recommend pulling the manual for your hitch off the web if you don't have it and follow their directions for proper set up.

Level is great but if it is slightly nose low that is ok, it is much better to be nose low than nose high. What kind of hitch do you have?

Your outfit needs to be set up from scratch, M109Rider had the right answer.

Take care,
