This works most of the time although there will be those times when the only way to get the spring bars onto their perches is with the lever-bar.
I delivered MANY different Jayco TT for Jayco. I used, and still use, the E4 Equal-i-zer brand hitch. Following the same procedure that Russ661 wrote, I recall having to use the lever-bar once
in the 3 years of delivering trailers. Of course setup vary and some may need it every time, but I believe that would be unusual.
