Lowered my Hitch.

I have been bothered with the front of my unit 5 inches higher than the rear of the unit. The dealer, what a great service dept, moved the hitch to its highest position in the frame. about 2 inches higher. They had a heck of a time. Lippert was useless in helping. I ordered lower feet for my Pullrite hitch. They make a shorter set of mounting feet Pullrite informed me of where the hitch attaches to the rails.

Over all I got it lowered 3.5 inches in the front. Now I hope to see if the swaying in the rear lessens. Here's hoping..

I wont know what the exact difference is until I pull it onto the road tomorrow when we get ready for a trip...I will try to let you know if it changed anything
