Looks nice.. hard to tell,from,the picture but it looks like the RV may be just a tad high but loaded, it may level out.

Yes it is a Colorado,the problem with the WDH is that in the picture the trailer is loaded,i dont think it will ever be that heavy again,empty the trailer is even higher than in the picture

I agree that the ball is too high. Try dropping it one hole and see if there is a difference.

Bite the bullet, get the proper tools and instructions from Fastway. Iíve never seen a dealer set one up right. And you need to check the torque settings before each trip

If you're unsure of doing it yourself find a trailer / hitch/ welding shop (not rv dealer) I have a great one by me that re-set mine Up in 30 min!

It looks a little high to me as well, but not by a lot. How does it pull? Can you get the trunnion bars in without too much trouble (I also have an e2). I had my service guy set up my e2 when I went from a Silverado to an Escalade for the TV, but it seemed a little off so I tweaked it myself. Pulls well and looks good before and after my tweak, but I can get the bars in a bit easier. I will post a pic next time I have it lashed up in a couple of weeks.

I have no problems with the bars or any sway,but the ball is in the rise position,i think the ball should be lower,iam just waiting for the oportunity to adjust it and see how it perform

There is an easy to follow you tube video on setting up the trying E2. Simple, easy and well done. Search and watch.
