I go down to 15 psi when I tow the TT on the beach and it easily drops 1". If want to store between trips, look at replacing the leaf springs with an air suspension that you could use to drop the trailer height.

Be careful about digging out at the entrance, you might create an issue with water getting in the barn when it rains./

I got it figured out. I appreciate the help. Turns out it was 2" shorter than literature said. I guess it pays to measure yourself.
Thanks again.

Good for you!

Dunno, I can measure myself as many times as I want but I don't get any shorter or taller. [emoticon]

Great news! Plus now you get to sue them for fraudulent advertising. [emoticon]

Our radio antenna caught on the lip of the raised door coming out once... had to reseal the base of the antenna and put a piece of vinyl tubing over antenna.. no more little ball on end to catch door.. The AC looks like it might hit but there are several inches of clearance...
