Actually, what you appear to need is a taller step up on your hitch. As do I. Here's how you know.
1) Park your trailer on level ground, raise the tongue so the tongue is level.
2) Measure the height from the bottom of the trailer hitch to the ground.
3) Put your TV on level ground, loaded as you would be for camping ( or a reasonable facsimile of weight and distribution, this is critical to correct measurements)
4)Measure from the top of the receiver (not the TV hitch) to the ground.
5) subtract figure 2 from figure 1, that is how much step up (or down) you need
