I would consult a heavy duty frame and alignment shop to investigate inserting a block of steel "riser" between axle and spring to raise trailer- That will require longer U bolts- Another possibility would be an extra leaf added to each spring or new springs with more "lift" to raise the trailer or find a way to lower the truck- JHMO- DD

Dealer said it wasn't that bad.
Had no time to push the issue, left for a trip. Will insist on it when we return.

If I get anything like this done, would it void warranty from Jayco?

Got a reply from Jayco and they told me to go through Dexter (manufacturers for the axles). " We do not recommend towing un-level. Dexter Axle is the manufacture of your axles, we ask that you work with them direct. They have kits that are offered to resolve your issue. Please note that by working with Dexter direct will not void your axle warranty. However should you use an after market part or manufacture it would void the warranty"
jayco also gave me all the phone numbers to contact Dexter as well as info from my RV axles from my VIN number.
Very pleased with Jayco's reply
My next step will be calling Dexter.
I'll keep the update posted

Called Dexter and was told because axles are already below the springs, there is nothing they can do and that as long as nothing is done to the axles, my warranty would not be affected. Jackie at Dexter recommended spacers to be welded to the frame like Diesel Donnie says. Unsure if I could add a leaf since that may constitute as modifying the axle?
