Low tongue 2105 greywolf 21rb

We picked up or new Greywolf from the dealer last week. They installed a new WD hitch etc to our tow vehicle, very nose high. I took it home and called the dealer back and told them it was setup wrong and it did not tow well and that it needed to be level and I will most likely need a lower shank. I leveled the trailer and measured the ground to the bottom of the ball receiver. Its 13.5 inches. Pretty low! the tongue on this model is welded underneath the trailer frame causing it to sit very low.

Took the trailer back in a week later, the service manager took one look at and was not happy that it ever left way. He had on his tech adjust the head angel and it go the trailer within a couple inches of level. TV sits well, Still no lower shank. I have driven around with this thing loaded I already scrape with the WD bars on every driveway I went up and down unless I had an amazing amount of maneuvering room to exit or enter.

The dealer is telling me they canít really drop it any further that I will drag the shank on the ground. I could try a different style (trunion) hitch but will cost me more money. Other than that nothing they canít do..itís good enough.. This is very frustrating!! They told me a new hitch is better than a new TV! Really ?! isnít the ball height determined by the trailer? No matter the tow vehicle the hitch will still be right next to the ground. Currently I have about 6.5 inches ground clearance to the bottom of the round bars. Trailers needs to come down 2 inches
