For those in the know about this hitch, how much weight is transferred from front to rear (on truck axles) in any of the adjustment settings? Currently, I have mine in lowest position and all the way forward. No problem w/ turning or how it rides. However, if I'm not perfectly straight w/ coach, I cannot drop the tailgate of truck down. I can go rearward w/ the hitch at same height, but am curious as to how much weight is transferred if it is moved rearward.

I had a Patriot slider before my current rvk3300 and I had to install the legs in the rear most position to buy myself the extra room between the fiver and the tailgate. Towed absolutely fine in that configuration.

I have the companion and with the uprights all the back that takes 50 lbs off the front axel. With the uprights all the way forward it add 50 lbs to the front axel.

All with Cat. scales.

Mine is all the way back. I doubt that it changes by very much.

Thank you very much folks. Will switch things around as I have to remove hitch to load up some firewood.
