    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Measure from top of ball to the ground and top of trailer hitch to the ground, subtract=drop.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Not quite measure from the top of your receiver to the ground and the bottom of the trailers tongue to the ground when both are level the difference between the two is the amount of drop you need.
