Before the days of tear cameras, this was even more valuable to make those minor adjustments in hitching. Still helps.

I have had the issue you describe and have found that unbolting it with my electric ratchet and a 3/4 inch socket is so easy, fast and convenient that I haven't bothered to find a more elegant solution. It does not occur very often.

I use a Pro Pride with my FC 27. The key is to have your WD jacks totally loose before you unhitch or hitch. In a few instances, I've had to swing the rear of the truck by turning full lock and moving a foot or so to clear. Not a big issue for me, and I've been in many tight spots (National Parks, etc.). As with most things, you get better with practice.

I don't think I ever had a jack pad on mine. I have an aluminum "foot" (made by someone in the forums) that I place on the ground and the jack rests on it. It's rare when I can't get the jack through the bars but if I'm really that twisted up I pull forward to straighten out and go back straight. That feels like less work to me than swapping out hitch bars and when I'm camping, work is not allowed

Seriously though, there's no wrong way to do it. If that method works for you, have at it!
