I know there are quite a few Propride owners out there who may be able to give me some good advise. Attached is my TT and TV on level ground, as it sits the bottom of the stinger is coming in a tad higher than the top of the hitch opening. Also have the stinger angle tilted downward with two washers. I am trying to dial this in for the optimum performance.

Need to use the trailer jack to raise the trailer so the stinger is centered. Here's a nice video where it's explained better:

I know that, pardon me for not being clear on that assumption. What I am asking does my stinger height look OK for a level trailer?

Follow instruction manual or call Sean.....to me it looks OK but then it's hard to say from a picture.

Did both, he said I could lower it or keep it at that level if the rear end sags a lot. I think if I lower it it would be too low.

I would leave it as it, load trailer and truck ready to camp and do a test run. You will see how it drives and also how the rear and front end fender measurement to ground changes. Then you can adjust if required one hole down if required and retest.

I have towed with it like it is, but I have to extend the jacks to max to distribute the weight to the front. May add another washer to the tilt and call it a day.

I know it is worth the try but I'm afraid the bars will be too low and hit when pulling out of my carport.
