View Full Version : upgraded pin box to Reese 5th Airborne

We upgraded to the 5th Airborne to help with the chucking. Once it was installed, the 5ver seemed to be 'off level' so we lowered the Reese 20K hitch inside the bed down to it's lowest setting. This seemed to help a lot. But how can I tell for sure it's level? :confused:

Go "old school" and throw a torpedo level in the unit.

We just put a TriGlide AirRide Pin Box on out BH. I will be installing a large visible level on top of the hitch. It shows you side to side and front to back. If 5th airborne is anything like TriGlide, the king pin sits a couple inches lower than the standard installation.

I check my level on the coach when I am on a flat drive or lot. That is where I level the truck as well to make the TV and camper ride nearly flat level. I like the Coach to be about 1 inch above level in the front and the TV completely level. Adjusting the air bags and the correct pin setting accomplishes this. I use a 6 foot level to install the levels on the coach.
