Load Leveling Suspension - Instl Weight Distribution Hitch

I have a 2012 Ford Expedition with the HD Towing package and RR Load Leveling Suspension (air bags). I have not been able to find directions on how to set/control the vehicle suspension system to correctly install an Equal-i-zer hitch. Anybody have information on this?

I recently purchased a weight distribution hitch and was assembling it yesterday. Instructions with it did cover use of air assist or air suspension. It short form, it said to load and level the tow vehicle, measure distance (height) from rear bumper to ground, then connect trailer to hitch ball and trailer jack to raise bumper approximately 3" higher than the measured distance, then connect the weight distribution chains.
The air suspension should not be used to level the trailer load as that would not be applying load to front axle as designed.
