Jayco Pinnacle and B&W Companion Hitch Question

Looking to hear from anyone that has a Jayco Pinnacle and uses the B&W Companion Hitch. We purchased our 2017 Pinnacle prior to the Ram 3500 Dually. Installed the hitch but curious at which level to put the uprights; bottom, middle, or top. What have you done and does it tow level?

thanks for info

thanks for the responses. I am in the middle hoping I will not be high in the front. I guess the good thing is I can always move the arms.

2018 Pinnacle and 2008 Duramax with Companion hitch, using the middle holes too. But every truck configuration rides at different heights. Remember, you should have 6" clearance on top of the bed rails and still ride as level as possible. Use the lines on the closeouts or trim for visual level.

I have a 16' Duramax short box, and after touching the underside of our brand new(!) trailer with the box of the truck reversing into my driveway the very first time, had to move the hitch from the middle set of holes to the top set.

The rear-end of the trailer sits a little lower, but I don't seem to notice any negative impact(s) towing at 110-120kmh on our freeways (~65-75mph).

From what I hear, the aim is to have a full 6-8" of clearance between trailer and sides/rear of box, while sat on level ground. Any less, raise the hitch and/or lower the pinbox (Like I say - hearsay. I'm happy/prepared to be corrected on this though)

Trailer is a 17' Eagle HT 29.5BHDS with the 'standard' pinbox. Truck has B&W Companion (no slide option - I'm cheap, and will watch cab corners closely when manoeuvring!)
