i am so grateful for all the help i got here and i hope i didnt waste your time. i DID screw up in the beginning when i said the camper was not pushing the car down. it was. quite a bit. i drove it safely to the shop-the guy that was supposed to come here had and emergency and was at the hospital-so i drove slow and had no problems until i turned into the drive at the shop...just touched the ground a little
but when they unhooked it was obvious the ball is almost at the right height for the camper to travel level...and the camper did push the car down a lot.
so...i think i am right that the problem is the tongue weight? i have 2 full propane
tanks on there and would prefer not to have them anyway so i hope i can find someone who will use the propane
and give me back the tanks to store...in case i change my mind or get a bigger vehicle down the road.
besides that...is this where the levelers would work? or the bags? or someone suggested filling the water tank in the back and that would bring the tongue up.
the black and grey tanks are empty now and in front...so i guess it will be important to empty them often if i use them
i was so happy with my truck...it was so easy and i felt so safe. but i got this arthritis now and just driving was hurting me.
so-lighten up the front of the camper...use levelers? bags? any other tricks to keep the camper from pushing the car down like that? thx so much for all your time with this.
