Thank you! Finally figured it out. Thank you so much for all of your help and encouragement- everybody. I've learned and continue to lwRn tons, and as I admit, mechanics was not a born in natural thing for me. It's taken dogged persistence and great help.

Btw..my friend let me borrow his brand new tongue weight scale today, so I weighed her in and she's 180 pounds when at the same height/level she'll be when hooked up. That's exactly 12 percent of total weight, assuming my trailer is approx 1500 pounds. Whoopee!

[QUOTE=CampyTime;529023]I just turned the stinger around to the 2 inch drop side. Level says a little low. Top of coupler is now 14". Here's some pics. So basically it appears a little nose down now. Before on 3/4" rise side it was a little nose up. Don't know what to do!

You're OK now. Just make sure your ball is torqued real tight to the stinger.
and check for looseness between the stinger and receiver, If so, try to shim the gaps on top and sides with short pieces of hacksaw blade. Or, you may be able to find a snubber kit at the hitch store. WHY? you ask. Because looseness can aggravate side sway. And will hasten wear.

Ha ha! I'm sure I'll think of something! . Wouldn't you be bored without all of my questions?

Next up is little window sealant job and then finally, school is out and I go camping!

Thanks Carol for the compliments. I always appreciate the help here; gives me the courage to try!

And I promise I will try to wait 24 hours till I pose my next question.
