I'm going to guess it's the hitch manufacturer's manual. I just read mine (Eaz-Lift) and it too makes zero sense. It wants the front and rear to settle by the same amount or up to one inch more in the rear. I'd have a hard time getting my front end to a lower height and I'd likely be way overweight up there if I managed it. Even the same height would be too much torque with my trailer.
It is even in their installation video, at about 3:35, although here he says "within an inch..."

FWIW...I used to own a Durango and pulled a 12' Wells Cargo twin axle trailer over hill and over dale, not quickly...Simply put, Durango's do not have enough TV weight or HP to safely pull a 25' TT...Make the road safer for everyone, get a more appropriate TV!...
