Newbie Questions

Two newbie questions that I can't seem to figure out after 1 year of ownership.

1) When I bought my 2012 22' Sport they included a black 2 piece stand (photo attached). Can anyone tell me what it's for?

2) The 'wheel' that attaches to the end of the telescoping tongue jack, do it serve a practical purpose? Do people use the wheel to make small corrections when hitching up coupler to ball?

!. That is the stand for your television if you remove it from the articulating arm in the trailer.

2. The wheel can be usable for small adjustments on trailer with a relatively light tongue weight.

That wheel is useless unless your on concrete. Mine has been off since new. I use a plastic cone from Camping world to set the tongue jack on.

What Moosetags says. TV stand. I have never figured why a wheel would be useful on the tongue jack unless you are on dead level concrete. It would be so easy for the entire rig to move on it's own when on wheels at all points. Dangerous in fact.

There is one and only one reason for a wheel on the tongue jack, and that's if you have a lightweight trailer, so that if you have trouble lining up to hook up, you can manhandle the trailer tongue into line with the tow vehicle hitch rather than endlessly pulling the tow vehicle forward to try backing up again. For a trailer that's too big to manhandle that way, the wheel is worthless.
