I have a 2017 Macan GTS with a factory installed trailer hitch. I want to tow a 1500 pound boat trailer, but the height of the trailer receiver is 19 inches from the ground. I have a 2" trailer hitch ball mount with a 2" ball that puts the ball at the correct 19" height for the trailer, but there is a sticker on the Macan hitch that indicates that the ball should be 6" from the hitch pin, and between plus 1/2" and minus 1 1/2" from the top of the hitch. My set up puts the ball 10" from the hitch pin and 4" above the top of the hitch. Does anyone know if these are minimum required dimensions or maximum required dimensions? Has anyone towed a trailer with a receiver that was 19" from the ground? Any information would be appreciated. I have included a photo of the Macan hitch sticker.
