Another quick WDH question

Recently bought a new shank to get my camper exactly level, I was previously still about an 1" high. I'm still with 6 links under pressure, but now with the weight transferred to the front I'm about 1/4" lower in the front. 33.75" unhitched. 33.5" hitched. Will this 1/4" make a difference in my driving or should I just go to 7 links under pressure and take maybe 1/4" lift in the front over the unhitched height?

As long as your trailer is level a 1/4 inch is just fine.

Is that reversed? Or are you really 1/4" lower in front hitched than you are unhitched?

If so that's probably problem. Check you TV manual, but AFAIK you should never be lower hitched than unhitched.

Just to be clear, the numbers refer to your tow vehicle, correct? Either way, trailer or TV, I don't think a quarter of an inch is going to make any difference.
