My truck with WD hitch drops no more than an inch, and I only noticed that when I measured before and after. No air bags or blocks.
But, at the end of the day, it's your truck and trailer.. do as you wish. Your doing the right thing by asking those who are already doing it with similar setups.
Thank you I'm hoping to sort it out this weekend. I'm not going to be loading any water but just with the Batteries & Gas Tanks i think maybe another 200lbs.
