An interesting day to...

Well- after getting the tokonsha brake control hooked up. I decided to use today (sunday) to do a test run with the TT all connected.
And to add to this, a storm with hail was on its way (which I dread- I guess all of you dread that) But we were able to take the Airstream up to the store and then return to a safe wall that would shelter us from the possible angle of the hail coming in (which never happened).
Now. Look at this first time photo of the truck and Airstream from the side. The Airstream is higher in the front and was wondering what was causing this? The truck towed great and I had it in Over drive most of the time as we never got up to highway speed. But here's the pictures.

Hi, you need to lower the ball on the truck. I can't see [picture is too small] if the ball mount is adjustable or not. You might want to buy an adjustable WD hitch assembly.

well thats what the ball is mounted to now is a reese hitch...but I will look tomorrow to see if it can be flipped...we also have an extra stinger hitch that can be used. --well obviously it can't be flipped but another hitch will work I think because we could not raise the AS enough to get under it without using another small jack we had perched on a slab of granite.
