Default Re: Trailer hitch question

Forward sag is not necessarily due to receiver height. You need to be sure your tongue weight is right with your boat on the trailer. Tongue weight should be 5-10% of gross loaded weight. If more than that, then you could be in a dangerous situation to where loss of control down the highway; or persistent tire blow outs could be a problem. If tongue is good, then monkeying with the reciever is the last step...
