    Go back to who installed it and get them to level it when it's in V mode. Or you can do it yourself it not too hard to do remove two bolts and loosen two on in front of the pivot (on the frame) there is a slotted hole you can adjust and put the bolts in and tighten every good and that should cure the problem. Just had mine done by the dealer in scoop mode it was riding on the center and the edges never touched the ground and in v mode the edges scraped the ground and the center was up in the air. Hope this helps
