No reason for the brackets to be set different...unfortunately not a good sign that the hitch is set properly. The tongue weight of 700 lb is with the camper loaded for camping?

With a listed dry weight of 5773 lb, your camper could be as much as 7000 lbs ready to camp. You should shoot for a tongue weight 850 to 900 lb. You may have to shift some heavy gear to the front pass-through or under bed storage. If you have payload capacity to use, tongue weight is your best friend in terms of sway control.

Should be the same on both sides. On the web site the have a install guide with step by step on the hitch install.

Equal‑i‑zerŪ hitch dealer in your area or Progress Mfg. Inc. customer service
at 1-800-478-5578 or by visiting Equal-i-zerŪ Hitch - The “American Original” with 4-Point Sway Control™ and Weight Distribution.
