Sent the information to Equalizer and they suggested moving the hitch head up one hole? More confused now than before!

When I measured mine level for the original equalizer setup on an asphalt road it was 22.25 from my notes. I have also measured it at closer to 23.5, but it was on gravel so thats not real accurate
I threw a level both on the bars and the tongue today, both are right on the edge of the center line slightly nose down, the weight distribution bars perhaps just a hair more.
I personally like the trailer at absolute level, or slightly nose down, you can stop for a quick overnight camp and leave it on the truck that way, just lift it a hair (less than we normally do to put the bars on) with the tongue jack. If its nose high, you have to unhook, or run the front of the truck up on blocks. I don't think the weight would be much more appreciable on the back of the truck, if you had water and the water ran to the front of the tanks closer to the hitch, yes a little, but most of the weight in your trailer is fixed in a certain spot. i also don't think your going to be near the payload on your truck having a 2500. Would be an interesting scale comparison however.
The holes on the shank are 1.25 change I believe, so if your at 24.25 now you would go to 23 if you lowered.
