A call to Casita might be helpful to find out the hitch height when the trailer is level. You want the trailer as level as possible when towing.
When hitched to the TV, the front will drop a bit as the TV springs settle to the weight. That can be corrected with a Weight distributing hitch, but some TV manufacturers don't recommend that type of hitch.
So you may have to compensate with the tow bar/ball height.
My understanding is that if "Level" is hard to achieve, it is better to have the front of the trailer slightly lower than the back to help prevent trailer sway. But that could be wrong!
