We just took delivery of a new 29.5 BHDS as well last weekend, and faced the same problem with our 2015 Ram 2500. Our B&W hitch was lowered as low as it could have gone, but we still needed more height. One advantage we had was this rig came with the 16" wheel option. But, we still needed more height. So, the techs at the dealer raised the trailer another 3" by changing the holes at the shackles. We're still slightly nose high, but we think the suspension will settle somewhat with more towing and slightly more weight in front. We will now have to wait and see...

The Jayco dealer is advising that for the RV to set level they look at a distance from ground to pin box of 45.25 inches with 15 inch tires or 47.25 with 16 inch tires. And of course the distance between the top of the bed side and the pin box needs to be no less than six inches of clearance. Starting to feel like I may be screwed. The Jayco does have some adjustment on the trailer axels - up to about maybe 2 inches. I also know that the truck will "squat" a little with the RV hooked up. Has anyone faced this issue? If so, what was the outcome? Can the truck's rear be lowered? Thanks for any responses.
