When they built the Eagle HT 27.5 BHS, they musta anticipated 4 inch plumbing. Had to duck/gorilla tape all the bath room plumbing, critters love TT in the winter. I stuff stainless steel pot cleaning pads around the electric cord outlet also, I bought the 5th wheel so I didn't have to put a hasp on the master bed board. My 2011 F150 Eco Boost HD 8,200# HD 2,400/11,200 Custom LB pulls without a whimper. Locked myself out - got a Hide-a-Key, the better half was at the other end of the phone laughing.

RP53,

The way I understand it is that you tilt the ball to achieve the right alignment of the WD bars with the frame.
You want to have the WD bars to be close to parallel aligned with the frame when you have them set.

If you see that the end of the WD bars are very close to the frame, one of the adjustments is to tilt the ball away from the TV to to get the WD more parallel with the frame.

Hope this makes sense.

The angle is not as sever as it appears in the photo. And that is the old style Reese dual cam that has not been made in over a decade, but I`m still using it. The bars do not necessarily run parallel to the frame with that system. I believe more angle on the ball gives you greater weight distribution from the bars when the chains are tightened.
