Flip Jack Foot

Hi everyone,

I have been looking at buying and installing the "Flip Jack Foot" ... the little red attachment that mounts on the electric jack post and apparently retracts automatically.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Does it work well? Is it solid enough for our heavier trailers? Any comments would be welcome.

I've been using one for a couple of years with no problems and like it a lot. Saves the back a little.

I will just caution you to make sure it is in the up position before moving the trailer.

Yes, they work well IF PROPERLY DEPLOYED; but, they will bend.

I like mine. Only time I've had a problem (other than forgetting to raise it) was when trying to deploy it on a steep downslope. I couldn't lower the front end enough to level the trailer.

One issue I have with mine is that sometimes I cannot lower the tongue jack due to the foot interfering with the Hensley. I then need to pull the TV forward and straight. So now I generally back in further than I need to and then drive forward which usually re-centers Hensley so that I can lower the jack.
