Column of dead pixels on my nav screen (CCC)

It looks to me like it's non repairable but figured it was worth asking.
Has anyone seen a similar issue?

Thanks.

I can't offer any help on the compressor issue, but I am certain that the front end looking off is just a symptom of the right rear being deflated. Good luck getting it sorted.

Interesting. I always thought that part of the reason for the weight on the ball is so that when going over heaves, or decelerating, the trailer doesn't try to lift the rear of the vehicle. Which...

Looks great.
It does sound like you should probably nudge it forward. You want to shoot for 10-12% of the trailer weight on the tongue. 560lbs+ might be a bit much though. I think the max for stock...
