I'm seriously considering just flipping the axles and taking my chances with the warranty on the axles and suspension. It is just too stressful even pulling into a filling station at this point wondering if I'm going to rip the jacks off the back end.
Yeah, that's an issue for sure. If you were to want to figure it out the simplest way would be to unhook and set your nose to the 1.3 degrees high. Measure from pin to ground. Level and then measure again and calculate the difference. This would give you some rough idea how far out you are. But even with that the backend isn't going to raise by any order of significant magnitude. Or you could play around with some trig functions on your calculator...
and guestimate the length or some triangles and rotation points.
If I were in your situation, I'd flip the axles and take my chances. I've flipped them on my AF and on a WW toy hauler. It never even occurred to me there could be an issue with warranty. Even at that, it would take a fairly astute dealer to determine they were flipped and then be able to prove that caused said unlikely issue. I mean if your fridge goes out or the water heater quits or you have an issue with a roof failure it's a pretty big leap to deny coverage based on an axle flip. In fact, I can't really thing of anything that it would affect.
The positives outweigh the negatives because with those rear stabs so low it's only a matter of time.
It was something that never occurred to me as I only have the 4 point system so my rears are where your mids are. I would be in the exact same situation if I had jacks on the far rear of the trailer. In fact I don't think I could back in my normal spot.
Let us know how it turns out for you.
