Adjustable Suspension

Hi All,
I am the proud owner of a 344QB 5th Wheel and I am picking it up tomorrow. I have a couple of questions that I hope you can help me out with. The paperwork says that it has adjustable suspension but I can't find anything about it, can you explain this to me? Are there any specs on how tall the Kingpin is from the ground sitting level or anything to help setting up my hitch? I am sure that I will have other questions after I get it home but this is all for now.

Thanks
Scott

They will adjust the hitch for you don't worry about that.
no one will most likely have an answer since every tv is different.

Not sure on the adjustable suspension.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new unit.
When you get a chance read through the forest river forum faq section there's lots of info there that might help you!

never heard that the Wildcat has an adjustable suspension but they can get the auto-leveling system as an option.

well, here's what it says on the Wildcat website:

"Fully Adjustable Suspension (Fits Todayís 4x4 Trucks)"

someone with a 5th wheel might be able to say what that means.

Ok i am sitting by my camper thinking about your post and i think i see what adjustable suspension means.
My front and rear spring hanger have 2 mounting holes about 2 inches apart
so as to raise and lower 5er aprox. 2 inches one way or the other?
Could that be it?

Might even be 3 inches.
if ya ask I'll set my beer down and measure for sure!

As stated above, this has to be the adjustable suspension, I also have this on my Wildcat.
Mine is set in the lower holes to increase height. When I upgraded to 16" wheels and a taller tire, I could of moved the spring bolts up to the top hole so the trailer would keep the same ride hieght it had with the little tires. Instead, I lowered the pin box to level off the trailer.
