    It looks like it sits a little nose high, but it is actually pretty close to dead level. I think it might be the slope of the driveway

    One problem solved... after knocking the trailer wireharness connector off, relocated to bumper using hole from left license plate lamp, also switched out bulb in right lamp to slightly brighter to compensate
