Thanks guys, I think I got lucky .I had a reese receiver on the old jeep .so before I traded in I measured the hitch ,top of ball was 22 1/2 inches ,I popped it in the new jeep and it's no more than 23 inches .I did splice the plug and 4 wires that came with the jeep to the 4 wire harness from the prodigy 2 .big reason I wanted your feed back on location ,I had it on the left in old jeep and banged my knee on it a lot !

Yes, set the air suspension off to measure at the wheel wells. That will get you close. Suspension on to measure Airstream for level. I measure the frame at the front near the coupler and at the rear near the bumper. You may have to adjust ball height to achieve Airstream level. After the weigh in, you may have to adjust weight distribution. Jim

Thanks for the advice ,just got back from pulling out of storage .hit the scales and got :3140 steering ,2980 drive and 3980 trailer . Guess 1 to many washers on the equal I zer.had 5 ,took a guess for this new jeep and put in one more .trailer was empty and dry (propane tanks full ).was able to drop hitch one set bolt holes on the shank to get trailer level .i was nervous with a new tv but boy it pulls so nice ,brakes and steers very comfortably !sprung for mckesh mirrors and they are great !and the tail gate clears the jack so another plus .
