Yes, I will have to check the tailgate clearance but I believe it will clear. I had the same problem when I put an electric jack on an old airstream. That jack was easy to adjust--two or three set screws and rotate motor 90 degrees. I did check the Husky before I installed it and will not be able to do it that way. If necessary I will have to drill and tap new holes in the hitch--hopefully there will be no clearance issues, and yes I did drill drain holes in the boxes--good suggestion.
