Thanks Snedwid, That's exactly what I've already done.

Needless to say, the video we got was nothing like that, and, at no time did anyone say anything about the hitching process. I know that dealership was negligent, but I also blame myself for walking in so naive and ill-prepared.
Our orientation of our new trailer, including set up of our brake controller lasted almost five hrs. We video taped the entire process. Do you mind telling us which dealer you purchased from? I am so sorry you did NOT receive what Airstream intended you to have, as Andy mentioned, a happy and well informed customer. I would highly suggest you complain to the manager of the dealership and Airstream directly. Shame on them!

I suggest you call Justin Humphreys, VP Sales at Airstream in Jackson Center. He is responsible for the dealer network and should be aware of this situation.

The suggestion of hiring a good RV tech for a few hours is good if you can find one. Finding one may be a problem. I paid good money to two techs, one at an Airstream dealership and still didn't get the adjustment right. If you can't find a good tech, and don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, you might call someone at a local WBCCI chapter or contact one of the local Airstream inspectors on AirForums. I've found Airstreamers extremely happy to help other Airstreamers. Almost certainly there is an Airstreamer at a nearby WBCCI chapter who has extensive experience with your brand of hitch and who will spend some time orienting you to your trailer.
