    I wouldn't sweat one inch, but if you have a short rise/drop mount, you may be able to turn it over and make the difference.

    If you are talking 1" difference over the entire length of the trailer than I would say it's a mute point.

    Depending on what you use for a tow vehicle, you can have that much plus / minus just from load variables in your truck / car.

    It is torsion. I'm just wondering if 1" change from front to back justifies a new $45 ball mount. As with anything on the boat, I'll pay what I need to to make things right/safe.

    Ball mount height-gctid406464

    I just installed a new coupler, and found that when connected the tongue of the trailer is 1 inch higher than the end of the trailer. Is this an issue at all... is it worth it to buy a new ball mount that is an inch lower? The trailer is a double axle for a 2452.
Working...
