That Escalade has a active load leveling system and would of leveled the truck if he had of hook up the trailer with the truck running, it looks like he spent the night without dropping the tongue and then drove off. He still needs WD though.

The sales guy that sold us our previous and current trailer said he's amazed at the people who decline to get a WDH when they really need it. Some claim to have their own at home and insist on doing the set up themselves. But most just refuse it. Afterlife, he cannot force them to get one. On their invoices and records for the sale, they make note that they strongly suggested the customer get a WDH hitch, and that the customer refused that item.
I got a friend that pulled a Springdale the size of ours. Used a '99 F150 and no WDH. He'd see mine and comment all the people in his family that said he should have one. But truck and camper are gone now, he never keeps anything.

I was thinking maybe he had the air level system, but it sprung a leak on their trip and that was why it was sitting like that. I believe the system will level out as soon as the key is turned.

I hope that if anyone sees me doing something wrong - even in just their opinion - that they tell me. I remember when Daisyboiken did just that with me - and I was so glad! Towing is fun. But also nothing to trivialize.

It normally does, it might have been struggling with the weight. When I had mine it was a real PITA to get the WD to play nice with levelling system of the truck.

I don't think that system is designed for 1200 lbs of TW plus the people and cargo!
