New Sony CD player w/iPod control, and new Alpine front speakers. Still need to get replacements for the original bedroom speakers. They're still functional, but sound awful compared to the new fronts.

It has 4 washers- a "just right angle".
The angle is what makes the dpring bars lift every

Oops...
Lift everything up, right?
This storm has the power in the campground going off and on. I had to get up and turn off my a/c.

Yes have you ever used 5 washers. Might be the angle of your pictures but, the truck looks like it squats a little too much?
Sorry off topic

Today, 21 June, we signed the transfer papers and wrote the check for our membership with a lot at the Airstream only Ponderosa Shadows RV park at Lakeside, AZ. There are only 40 members so it is a small group. The grounds are open from May to the first week in October. There is at least a twenty degree drop in air temperature between there and Phoenix.

We have full hookups with park wide WiFi and cable TV/Internet is available to each lot. Each approximately 8,000 square foot lot has a 10' x 12' shed for personal stuff and our lot has a pad for a 15' in diameter screen room.

We spent the night there when we put down a deposit. There are square Streams, 5th wheel Airstreams and a few vintage units along with the new stuff.

It is parked in a dip- front of the truck is going up a hill.
Will another washer lift it? I might try that. Seems like maybe the truck's springs are getting weak. I wonder if there are helper springs available for it.
Even on a level surface it seems to sit low if the front wheels are turned, but level if the wheels are straight.
Do the spring bars get weak with age/use?

I don't think so. Try that 5th washer. I think you'll notice a difference in handling.

Your hitch package should have come with 5
If you don't have a spare, try to find one at a camping supply place or Equalizer. They may send one to you for free

Any grade 8 washer with the correct ID should work.

Dealer installed (incorrectly)-
I have no parts.
What will the fifth washer do?
We bought 10 Curt weight distributing hitches at work. Maybe there are some washers there. I will contact Justin Andrew at Progress Mfg. and get his input.
