Pin box/bed rail interference

Have a 2013 315fbhs. TV is a 2013 ram 3500 cc long bed dually 4x4 with a b&w companion hitch. Also have an access tonneau cover. To get rig level I had to raise hitch all the way up and lower pin box way down and have 6" of tailgate clearance. Problem is that the oem extended pin box will hit my tonneau cover rails on a sharp turn. Center of kingpin to back of pin box is 28.5". Bed width between tonneau cover rails is only 55.5". Don't want to lose cover or go to gooseneck. Dealer will check with jayco Tuesday. Anyone have any other ideas. I worry that a shorter pin box will cause problems with tailgate when down to hitch up. Thanks

Can't use that with my b&w hitch. I think I'll try to find a shorter pin box but I'll call jayco on Tuesday first

I had to take my tonneau cover off also when folded up it was too close and would hit if the truck wasn't on level surface when turning.

Found out that my pin box is a dexter. No one-moreryde, lippert, or anyone else makes a pin box with the same hole pattern that is any shorter. The only pin box I found that May work is a demco glide ride universal. It comes with no holes so I would have to mark and drill the holes. Does anyone know if all 2013 315fbhs came with the dexter box?

I trimmed the back corners off the pin box for now. I'll find out tomorrow if that gives me enough clearance.
