My point exactly. Air the bags up to the pressure you go down the road with and set the hitch up based on that ball height. I'm not making this into a pissing match, just trying to send the OP down the right avenue to fix his problem. The 1200 lb bars are pretty stiff and a bear to load up as it is. OP, feel free to PM me. I sold my trailer that I used the Reese on, but remember the woes of getting it setup properly behind the dealer's install. Properly setup, it was flawless, even in winds, and big trucks were nothing!

I went out and checked the dual cam setup, everything looks to be right as far as measurements and the spring bars are concerned, the seat in the detent great. I have no directions for the actual truck hitch however guess I will tilt it a little and see what happens

Just remember, when you tilt, you will have to readjust the cams.

Curious... what air bag system are you employing? I ask because, generally, AM air bags are intended (designed) to supplement the stock suspension without distorting the ride height. When you air up your air bags is the frame of your TV being raised so much as to unload the spring bars?
