Do you have a zoomed out pic? If the tv is in straight inline the chains should be straight up and down. Just a thought...Can you take back that hitch and get a Equal-i-zer 4-Point? IMO its a better hitch as well.

The more I look at it, the more I think I'll have to move the mount for the tanks or make a new one. If the mount was adjustable I could possibly do that, but it's welded to the frame.

this might be totally off the wall, but I would contact CURT and show them your pictures and ask if you can re-drilling the holes in the bars to move the chain attach point forward where the chains hang vertical. I'm assuming you have the same problem on the other side. If this is acceptable I would think you would attach to the 4th link and have 3 hanging instead of 5th link with 4 hanging as you currently are doing.

With the way they are now, when you make a right hand turn thing aren't going to be pretty..

I'm going to say that they will tell me not to do that for "safety reasons". Good idea though.

My set up is very similar to yours and the last 2 trailers that I have owned were the same way. I found that mine was more of the tank cover and not the tanks so I just pull the cover up until I set the top latch and then slide the cover back down mine was flexible enough to go back in place.

Was the chain orientation similar as well?

Long overdue update:

This is the modification I did. I moved the tanks to the front of the tongue and the battery just behind the tanks. Because the tanks are now in the way of the jack I purchased an electric jack ( good excuse). This now allows me to center the wdh chains over the hook properly. Click image for larger version

Very nice solution. Love the blue tanks, and even more the excuse to get an electric jack!

If the battery can be moved to 1 side, you could now install some sort of storage box for tools, gloves, stabilizer crank, etc.
