Hitch Height On Incline

I have a new truck. My drive has a slight incline. To adjust the new hitch height can I level the camper to slight incline and pull the truck up.

I am a bit confused. Are you trying to set the height for your WDH

If you are trying to determine the height in inches of the coupler on the trailer, I would adjust the level of the trailer to match the slope of your drive. Just take a measurement from frame in back and match it with the frame in front then measure the coupler height to ground. Then measure slightly higher for your ball on your truck.

If this isn't what you want to do then I am unsure what you are asking..lol

That is exactly what I want thank you. Anyone know the hitch height on the 2012 Jayco 267BHS?

I have 22" to the bottom of the coupler. Just trying to double check my work.

As stated above.Every camper is different. I'm at 26 to top of ball. 23 to bottom. I changed tires and gained a inch height on the trailer.
If your driveway is stright on the incline simply crank up or down until the distance between the frame on each end of the camper is the same. This distance will be real close to where you need to be on bottom of the ball.
Normal ball distance is 18 inch. I had to go to 26 to top for mine to be level.
