RE: Towing Nose High

Well I was an idiot for not measuring when I had it out. I store my 5er in my side/back yard and if I pull it out now it will rut my yard real bad until it dries out. Here is a picture I took the other day when I had it out and took it to Blue Beacon to get washed. Not the best but you may be able to get the idea. width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Towing Nose High

So is truck lifted? No. The front is leveled out but not the rear.

Towing Nose High

I have a 2007 Pilgrim 39' 5th wheel (So there is no manufacturer to refer to nor any warranty to worry about) that comes in at 14.5K GVWR. I normally leave this camper at my site which is about 250 miles from home. I bring it home once every couple of years if there is work I need to do to it or accessories to add. I do want to add that I am pretty anal about my maintenance on it. I just purchased a new to me 2018 F350 as a tow vehicle for this and my cargo trailer. I also installed a new goosebox on the 5er to use the integrated gooseball on the truck. I have pulled it around a bit locally and it pulls great. The problem is the rear end of the truck sits so high that the 5th wheel does tow nose high and there is nothing I can adjust to change that. If I change the position on the goosebox I lose clearance to my bed rails. I can't flip the axles on the 5er and it does have an equiflex on it. I am not really wanting to remove the blocks on the trucks rear springs of the truck for one short trip if I can avoid it. Also I do have some newer Sailun tires on 5er. My question really is, how bad is this going to be for my upcomming 250 mile trip? I know it puts more strain on the rear tires but just not sure how bad? What can I do to help the problem or should I just go for it and make frequent stops?
