Question for the WDH experts

I'm running the Reese Dual Cam WDH. I need to get more weight transfer to the front of my TV but I'm already running the minimum required 5 links under tension. I also have my hitch tilted to the furthest setting towards the TT. Is there anything else I can do to get more weight to the front of TV? The reason I'm asking is that my TV seems to want to wonder ocasionly in the front, I'm assuming this is caused by not enough weight transfer to front. Cpl pics of my current set up.
TV is a 2016 F150 long box 3.5 Eco with max tow.
TT is a 2016 Coachmen Apex 300bhs.

Should also mention I have a 2" leveling kit installed on the front of TV, hoping this isn't my issue!! Also would air bags help with this issue?

Air bags are not going to shift any weight, they will only lift the rear up. Lifting the rear would also cause you to have to shorten your chains.
It looks to me like you have some pretty stiff bars on there already, so either you have a seriously heavy tongue, or you aren't starting out with the ball and coupler the same height.

Cinch it up to 4 links instead of 5.

Thats what I wanted to do but everything I read says make sure you have no less then 5 links under tension. Do you have any experience or known of anyone running 4 links with the dual cam?

If 5 links is the minimum, then you will have to tilt the head more toward the trailer.

It's tilted as far down towards the TT now ad it can. Would higher rated spring bars be a possible fix?

Doesn`t look like your reese head tips back as far as mine does . Maybe because your is a lot newer. Bought mine new in 2000. Will be putting into service again soon . Going to swap my Equalizer out and they the reese . As far as helping you I think the head should tip back more giving you more tension on your bars.

Not a great pic but this the adjustment thing that came with the hitch. It's currently set to 6/1 wich gives it the most tilt.
