Leaving the WDH bars connected while off-road HURTS the camper and increases likelyhood of breaking things.

Ahah, just watched some videos....didn't realize you could adjust the angle of the head.

They said the goal was to keep front and rear bumper height on the truck within 1/2 inch.

How much drop are you PW guys seeing after attaching a trailer?

There are a few numbers on page two of my writeup here on air bags.

With my tt hooked up with no air in bags or wd hitch, the front of my truck raised up roughly a half inch and the rear lowered roughly 1.5”.

My squats a lot, but I can level the truck and trailer with just WD. No bags.
