The WDH is meant to distribute tongue weight equally between the front and rear axles of the TV. They are not meant to level the TV. That is one of the reasons airbags would be used for; leveling. Before hooking up, measure from the top of your front and rear wheel wells down to ground vertically through the center of the wheel/axle. Then hook up. Re-measure without the bars installed. Now install the bars and measure again. Adjust the bars until you have an EQUAL amount of drop over the front and rear axle. To me it sounds that you may have adjusted your bars to put too much weight on the front axle.

Just my two cents.
Been following this thread closely and Makoto's method above is spot on to what I have read and heard elsewhere, but add in air bags and my confusion starts.

Question to the collective. At what point is air added to the airbags and what determines the correct amount?

Also, upon buying our 2012 RAM 1500 the dealer added Firestone air bags and told us to never fill them more than 30 PSI ??? I see here mention of up to 60 PSI.

Oh, and BTW. First post here so hello all !!!
