Since I have to lower my MH hitch 6" I also have the ability to move it forward. Because I have to use a drop rcvr and a Autostop the hitch ball is 14" past the end of the MH. How far should the hitch ball be beyond the MH. I think the closer the ball to the MH the better chance of it not hitting going up a slope. What do you think?

The closer the better. However, check to insure that your towed vehicle will not contact your motorhome in a tight turn. My tow bar attachment point is 10" out and 10" down from the motorhome receiver and the toad only clears by a little less than a foot in a tight turn.
