You have a Demco tow bar and it is adjustable for height. At the receiver end, you need to loosen the big bolt and tilt the head down so that it is level or slightly below level. Tighten everything up and you are ready to go.

Ideal is perfectly level from the coach to the vehicle but -3" to +1" is perfectly fine.

I read the height of the truck at 24" and the hitch at 21". The hitch has to come up, not down.
Sorry, I was unable to read the heights on the tape due to small screen and I didn't notice Gary had posted the measurements. The photo of the receiver end looked like the bar arms were angled down. Either way, the receiver head needs to be adjusted where it is perpendicular to the tow bar arms. It is sitting at an angle now.
