 I just had some body tell me that my trailer should be tilted back a little, so when you put the horses in it leavels out .I have neaver heard that before is this something new for the new trucks and trailer ? My trailr is 2005 and the truck is 2011 , the trailer sits leaval and the truck is leaval so what is he talking about ??

I like the trailer to tilt back slightly so that the urin runs out, that said the more level the better you are because assuming you have tandem axles, they are loaded more equally

I agree with the trailer sittings level so the weight is evenly distributed between the axles

Level when loaded.  I would only adjust the "tilt" if the trailer nose dips when the horses are added, thus making the trailer run nose down and not level during travel.  The people that like the nose in the air approach haven't had any rear tire blowouts, once they do they'll learn the hard way why this is so bad.
