WDH & Hills

My driveway has a decline and meets with a hill at about the halfway point of the top and bottom of the hill.

I bought my WDH but have yet to set it up, I have concerns that I might damage the hitch when I go to drive out of my driveway.

Am I just over thinking this? Thoughts appreciated.

Doesn't look any worse than a lot of cg's.
Just take it slow and have someone walk along the 1st time to watch for interference.

It needs to be set up on a level surface anyway. Go to a big parking lot somewhere to set it up and leave it off when entering/exiting the driveway. It won't hurt a thing to move the trailer without it being engaged.

To avoid dragging the rear of the trailer I wait until we are off our river lot before hooking up the WDH.

I found that I had to use the WDH or the tongue jack would drag leaving the storage lot and backing into the driveway. Haven't had prob's with the rear making contact. Have a new TV (F-350 6.7) and haven't towed with it yet. I expect it will have no problems sagging with the lightweight X23B. The recently retired Expedition did droop a bit without the WDH engaged.
