Thanks for posting the pics (very helpful), and appreciate the clarification on the Reese hitch model number.
I'm still amazed of what you are having to go through in-order to set-up the WDH with your specific TV/TT combination.
Just a couple of questions/comments:
A) When you tried the 12" drop stinger you mentioned it gave you only 5"
ground clearance, was the ball mount attached and was the TT hitched/leveled?
B) If answer to (A) was yes, was there the ability to cut of some of the
stinger (below the ball mount) and gain ground clearance?
C) If you have the Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension system, did you have the
system activated, or turned off when you were adjusting the WDH? I
believe some manufactures recommend having it turned off, but either
way this may be a moot point with your issue.
What's interesting is Jayco recommends this particular Reese model WDH on the Skylark models (which seems appropriate)..., and under proper WDH adjustment the TT should tow level. Now, with the TT level, the TT ball coupler will be at specific height from the ground that will in turn dictate the setup height of the standard Reese ball mount. The ground clearance below the ball mount (assuming the stinger end is flush, or cut flush) will be the same irregardless of the TV being used.... or am I overlooking something here???
I guess my point is I don't think this is just a Grand Cherokee issue, and wonder why it hasn't been brought up before? The fact that Jayco made the WDH recommendation, I wonder if they know what the expected ground clearance would be under the ball mount?
Still noodling over this one
Thanks in advance.
