I found that the slot on my K105 is so short that there's no room to adjust the fin fore/aft. Not that this helps you!

The bigger question to me is WHY the US fin box? Tuttle is so much easier to deal with....

Pareia,

Basically, forwards means better turning (looser) and further back means more stable. But in practice, it is very muh a question of tuning the balance of the board to suite your style and sails. So my advice is that if you're a bit lazy, just leave it in the middle. If you're eager to learn, try it all the way in front, then all the way back and then, when you have a feel for what the adjustments really do, try fine tuning with some settings in between.
