All you needed to do was disconnect the rear ride height sensor and slightly over fill the rear bags. After you got it out of the driveway reconnect and the unit will adjust itself to proper height. Some have a rubber grommet you just pull the rod out and others may require you to remove a retainer nut. Two minute job

Thanks!
Where I store my Berk the drive is on a hill and I also drag the tail. I have found that going out on an angle prevents this. I suspect coming in you were at an angle and going out you were backing straight out. It is the trailer hitch that drags. I mounted a wireless camera under my frame, got power from the trailer tow plug and monitor the tail so I can see how close I get. Helps a lot and was easy and cheep to do. Trying to fiddle with the air suspension is not worth the bother given where it is and other problems you can cause.

just a thought,, did the air ride system air up . after sitting for 7 days it might have lost some air..even with water filled up the air ride should still raised it back up to the proper height,,,, just a thought

I welded a steel roller onto my receiver mounted at the rear of my MH... Now when it drags, the roller simply does its job.... No damage to rig and no drag marks on road....

That is a great idea with the roller. Do you have any pictures of it that shows its size and exactly where you welded it on?

Put two rollers on ours, they just bolt on the reciever frame. Think you can purchase at CW, however it lowers the clearance a few inches, but beats draging the rear.

I'll take pics tomorrow and post them.... You can get rubber rollers or steel.. I opted for the steel because I felt it would last longer....

This is a great idea. We definitely need to make some modifications of some sort.

Thank you! Can't wait to get home and make that mod.
Learned a lot of lessons on this road trip
