Just crank the little wheel on the front jack screw of the trailer and the leveling problem is solved, just go slow!

The simplest solution would be to just move his wife Lucy's rock collection to the back of the trailer...

Looks like either the WD hitch needs to be adjusted properly or it's not rated properly.

You do know that the vehicle has self leveling Autoride suspension? When they start the engine it will air up, it probably has a slow leak, a common problem with those.

Or popped one or both of the air shocks. It looks 100% bottomed out.
Probably less of a driver ignorance issue and more of a mechanical failure of the Escalade.
But it is an ignorance issue with the rvnet weight cops who were waiting for a pic like that.
Fwiw, I just bought an old, much older than that Escalade, Tahoe with autoride.
For giggles, I dropped my 32’ enclosed trailer onto the hitch. Probably about 1000lbs tongue weight. It aired right back up to unloaded height.
I wouldn’t want to see how long the 19 year old shocks held up to that weight, but they worked

None needed. That's true Darwinism at work there. The problem will rectify itself.
