RE: Driveway Incline Issue

Ok, I agree with all and getting ready for the 2nd-weekend camping trip in the morning. I want to address all those statements. Step 1. Take roller ball off Step 2. Pulling out was easier to take a left at an angle since the tree is in the right side of the driveway exit. Step 3. Let the hitch scape (I thought this was doing damage to the system but can now understand just the bottom metal piece.) Step 4. When returning try again to scrap and push up along with boards. It seems to be only a few inches of clearer but it happens twice. Moving the 2X4 worked. I've also seen driveway ramps on amazon but unsure of exactly which ones I need. Last time we got the best angle swooping in while at same time not going over curb. I would think you don't want the trailer doing that and tilting. If it was flat trailer sure.

RE: Driveway Incline Issue

When we put our WD set on it looks great but again we bought the one with bottom saddles and cost us $1000 for them to put on... won't do that again. I think because of this the Hitch has also shifted lower. Should I just re-adjust to be level I assume and that might help as well.

RE: Driveway Incline Issue

I cringe every time I see this. This is with the roller ball on and my wife says everything looks great. I think we need to take the roller ball off and use boards. This is the part of driveway that gives issue and it scrapes the hitch so that is why we added the roller ball. https://ibb.co/fYTSZp4 https://ibb.co/mBzWhVp

Driveway Incline Issue

Greetings, new RV owner here. 18ft KeyStone Light 2016 and 2003 Tahoe with sway bar kit. We purchased our RV from Camping World and they delivered which allowed me to learn not to drive on the highway for the first time! When a 20 year delivery driver got here they tried several times and the hitch scraped the drive way and they said you would never get it up that and left it on the side of the road. A quick google showed putting boards under your rear tires and lifting would work. I did it and got it up. We explored ideas and seems grading your driveway is best solution which we cant do right now. We bought a roller ball for bottom of hitch as a suggestion but this doesn't seem right either. The issue is a combo of incline (which I still think is small) and that we have to take the sway bar off. If we keep them on then the saddles scape the ground. WHen we take them off it sits way lower. This picture is with the roller ball and I told my wife this may work but it looks like it is putting tremendous pressure on the hitch and trailer. This cannot be the right thing to do. We also still use the boards. Please RV professionals teach me the way we are going camping this weekend!
