I have a B&W hitch pinbox has the air ride and shock. Not the fifth airborne but the other one. thanks
I've always been told that you want ANY towed trailer (5er, TT, etc.) to be as level as possible. You say it appears to be nose high, but have you actually taken a tape measure to it to really see?
I have more weight on the tow pin and more weight on the rear set of axles and with less weight on the front set of axles.
This makes no sense to me and I think is impossible. Think of that front axle as a fulcrum point on a lever. More weight on the front and the back goes up, more on the rear and the front goes up. The axles are too close together for you to see a major difference in the weight carried by each.
I would measure first to see if it is level, and if it seems to far off take a look at what you have stored or are carrying where. Since that is a front living plan I would suspect it has a heavier pin weight which would make it a bit nose heavy.
One other consideration to look at, are the hitch and pin box properly adjusted to height and drop for a level tow?
