Installing the Correct Track system will raise the trailer 3". A relatively inexpensive & easy install.


I think it states 2" unless they have a new version.

That's what I was thinking, just 2 inches, but still a good option!

Not sure LCI Correct Track is available anymore
Thought after install it was 2" overall

2" nose high on a 39' 5th wheel should not be an issue

Yes it is good to tow level but at 2" nose high are you experiencing any towing issues?
Chucking, abnormal rear trailer tire wear etc????


I agree ,last two fifth wheel have rode a couple inches high, not a problem for me, nor have I had any issues .

Scale the trailer axles. If front and rear axles are close to the same weight, you do not have a problem.

I'm scheduled for installation on my brand new 5th wheel in November. I hope both the truck and 5er get here before then
