I use the bubble level and if it is out by 1 inch on slide side I will add 2 inches to allow for slide. If the other side is high by and inch I will leave the trailer as is and just lower the stabilizer jacks. I also have scissor jacks beside my axles this helps to eliminate the bounce in the trailer.

I agree, 1-1/2" works well for me, also a 3008W.

We also have a 3008 and I put 2 levels on it one for storage the other for when the slides are in use. Your right about 1 .5 in. It's the hardest towing vehicle I've had. Only used it for one trip. Still a lot of things to work out. I like the unit but I wouldn't buy it again

I'd also like to know why you say it's the hardest towing vehicle you've had. I have a Windjammer 30008 and it tows great. And I tow it with a Silverado 1500, with weight distribution hitch and duel sway bars.

Not sure what brand of WDH you own, or even if you have one. We need to know some details about your towing setup in order to provide any info/assistance.
Chances are, if you have a quality WDH, it is not setup correctly. If your using the setup made by the dealer, chances are even higher that it is not setup correctly. Most of us have had to reset up/adjust our WDH to operate properly. Give some info here and I'm sure this forum can help you!

The hitch is a equalizer with 4 point sway control. Tires I don't know off hand. Like I said earlier is new 2016. I will have to get back as it warms up some. It's in stowage. Thanks for any information. One thing I'm in Germantown MD do anyone know where to have this weighed. I need to know if the distribution of weight is correct

The closest Cat Scale to you is in Jessup.

You need to lose the grocery getter P Metric tires on your F-150 and replace them with LT tires. Then get your weight distribution setup properly.

My Windjammer tows like a dream. I believe I have covered what your problems are.
