I will measure the rise on the front from the ground moving forward. I will also measure with no WD to see what it is. I do know its a LOT more than what I am seeing with WD. Enabling the WD its far less than half, which I believe is what Ford is asking for.

I find it interesting that the rear rise can decrease quite a bit with the front rise not changing much. It does change the angle of the body of the vehicle a bit but none of it looks drastic.

So you added 800lbs of payload WITH a WDH? Damn.

To the back axel yes. Makes sense to me:

450 Tongue weight (empty)
* Two propane tanks = 70lbs
* WDH hitch with sway is probably close to 100lbs
* That leaves 280lbs of stuff that I have put into the trailer

Am I missing something?

Ah, it made it seem like you had just picked it up and it was dry. However, you added 900lbs to RA. This would be somewhat normal if it were without a WDH. The WDH takes some of the load off of the RA and distributes it to the FA and TT axle. So your payload (tongue weight) is actually significantly higher. The tongue weight of the x213 being much different from what Jayco says is well documented in other threads.

If Jayco's website is to be believed your trailer dry is 4,330lbs. According to your numbers your trailer plus hitch is 5580lbs. Without hitch, 5480lbs. Your GVWR for your trailer is probably 5500lbs. (Dry weight + CCC) Something's not adding up.

That seems about right. With my trailer hooked up with WDH, I'm putting 700# on the RA (that's just trailer, I measured the unloaded weight of the truck with the Equal-i-zer installed on the truck). My WDH is minimally adjusted, it doesn't quite put 50% back on the FA (something I'm going to fix this weekend), and at my weigh-in the trailer had 4400#, so not as fully loaded as EV4D's. X213s are a little tongue-heavy, eh? At 750# I figure that's almost 15%. I stuffed my camp chef stove and generator under the bed and weighed again, and it knocked the TW down to 650, but it had a decidedly negative effect on handling so I think maybe a heavy TW is good for this trailer.
