I also need a measurement from the middle of the coupler to that 1st bracket thats welded on the frame which holds the battery and spare tire mount. I hope its not in the way of my blue ox hitch components! Thanks

Mine is at the dealer now for a short list of warranty repairs before winter. They are to work with it tomorrow but assuming all is done then it will be Saturday before I am able to pick it up.

I'm pretty sure it's 20" from the ground to where the ball rests at the top of the coupler. I didn't have a level but I will tomorrow. I'll get the other measurement tomorrow as well. I do know that the bracket for my Equal-i-zer had to be moved 1" forward because the battery bracket was in the way.
Towed perfectly with my Tundra. Taking it out tomorrow to a local campground for a shake-down. Crossing my fingers.

After measuring today, I can't say for sure about the height. I was on a slight incline and it measured 26-1/2" from ground to top of the ball... But it didn't seem that steep that maybe my previous number was off. That's the best I can give you.

As far as the battery bracket... I went from the tip of ball receiver (not the center) and it measured at 34" to the bracket... So I think you should be good.

Only one minor issue with our 288... Looks like I have a slow leak in one of the tires. It looked low when picking it up and they put air in it then. I checked today and, after a week, I'm down 15PSI. If it's my only issue, I'll do the happy dance!
