Lincoln Navigator air suspension

struggling with the auto adjust air suspension on a 2008 Navigator. When hooking up to a 6000 lb travel trailer, the suspension returns truck to an attitude that forces the trailer tongue up. anyone had any experience with auto air suspension? all advise and observations welcome.

If the suspension returns the ride height to stock with the trailer on then you need to adjust your hitch.

Had the same issue and many more air suspension problems with our Navigator, I converted it to coils springs and never had another problem. The ride was better with coils too, not so mushy.
