I spent a couple hours trying to get my WD (trunnion bar style) hitch set on my 2000 Yukon XL. I adjusted & readjusted a number of times and cannot seem to get it correct. The distribution of load seems to be correct for the TV: height from ground to top of wheel-well at front is same height as when uncoupled and rear height dropping only ~3/8". However, the trailer is riding high on the hitch. My measuring is far from exact, but it seems to be 1-1/2" higher at the front than the back (over 27', lenght of the trailer). I even lowered the ball on the hitch by 1-1/2" after removing some of the washers to pivot the head assembly and increase the angle (and then reducing the number of links in the lift unit/spring bar to the minimum of #5). Now I'm at the minimum height of the ball as recommended in the instructions. Any ideas? I'm attaching the instructions from drawtite in case someone *sees* something! Thanks in advance for any suggestions..
Oh - I'm wondering if the Yukon XL SLE has self-leveling shocks that are throwing a wrench to the whole thing ... ???
This is a new, used truck that I got about 3 weeks ago - without any true info on the stabilizing system itself. But - the brake warning indicators are no longer lighting!!!!
