Oh and my brackets sit below my propane cover.

I moved the propane tanks forward and slid the brackets as far forward as they would go. Now they are against a frame bracket and my chains are not perfectly vertical. The tank cover rests on top of them.
I am not going to cut the piece out and have it moved 1/2"!
The frame designers fell on their collective faces.
Oh Well...

I would move the brackets forward until the chains were vertical and notch the cover or just take it off until hooked or lift it a little until hooked. Not a major operation.

Is it possible that maybe the ball is too low? from the pics, it looks like the camper is angled downward.

Me being me, I would be doing some re-arranging on the tongue. The chains should hang straight down to be the most effective. Batteries & propane tanks can be moved around to facilitate the proper placement of the over center latches.

re

Today I spent some time making some adjustments. I moved the chain brackets up so they're straight up and down and even on both sides. (they weren't from the dealer), I did a test run and made some changes with how many links to leave remaining.

suggestions, comments are greatly appreciated:
I went to my test site with 4 links loose, made a change and only went had 1 link loose on the ride back. I tried to do my measurements but I can't find a flat surface to save my life where I live.

Can you find a parking lot somewhere that isn't busy or crowded and just play with it there?

i found several, however non are flat so I can't get good measurements to compare with my start. I did starting measurements in my garage.
