OK, more rookie questions. How much clearance should there be between the top of the truck bed and the camper itself? I towed the camper home with the 5th wheel set where the dealer installed it. Much too high, pretty much all weight was on rear axle of the trailer.
This morning I lowered the 5th wheel to the lowest setting. I now have 8 1/4 inches between top of tailgate/rearmost part of bed and the camper. Is this sufficient? Too much? Not enough? I realize that there needs to be some play for side to side motion when traversing a slope one way or the other. What's a general consensus or rule of thumb? I can move the pin box up a hole or two if I need to go lower still.
In the photo shown, there is no weight on the landing gear, they're about a half inch from touching ground. I've had a Class A CDL for over 30 years, but no recent experience with tractor trailers, only straight trucks. So once again I'm looking for a little guidance from folks more experienced in the camper towing world.
