Bed End Support Location

A question the DW didn't want to ask because she did want to appear stupid. I, on the other hand, don't care.
On the bunk support brackets,which of the three frame holes is used? One more than the other? Different one for different situations?
Thanks

Not a dumb question. Nor even my dealer could tell my!! Lol. I use the top I beleive. Haven't set it up in months. I believe the brackets are used by ALL pop up models so it would be different depending on ur pup. Mine is a hw276. I was told to use what ever hole makes the beds level or closest to level. But I try ed that and at one site the supports weren't even close no matter the hole. Following

Center as well on the front. Our rear bracket has 4 slots and we use the second from the bottom there. Whatever keeps it level and well supported. We have a 2318g.

I use the bottom front and rear, I just figured they should be level too, so I leveled the camper, then put a level on the supports and picked the best one.

When I picked up the trailer, the dealer noted where the lower support bars were inserted. He said the way they determine it is by using the highest slot, then pull the bed out and if there is any resistance, drop down to the next slot, etc.

He said the when the trailer is assembled there is a variance plus the support rods can have a small variance too.

For me it was the center for the front, and the second from the bottom on the rear.

Thank you all. I put a level on it this weekend & our HW27KS needs to be in the bottom holes for the front bed. I haven't checked the rear bed yet.
