Excellent idea, Steve.

Soooo, Andy says to remove the "jack head". Is that just the cover of the motor? Here's a pic of what I have... can someone detail what comes off to use the manual crank for my tongue jack?

Laura.

Remove the complete rectangular box that's on top of the jack post. That will allow you to see and use the jack post threaded screw.

Hi again,

I started poking around looking for a handle. Didn't find one, but I did find a newer pdf manual for the jack. No hand drawn diagrams in this one.

My cover seems to be permanently stuck on. My DH couldn't even get it off (my last resort--pride & all). It's making suspicious clicking noises & I wanted to check it out. Would hate to be stuck w/o the ability to raise/lower the trailer! Guess what I got for my b-day? A new one! I'll post up here again after I get it installed & someone can have my old crank. Hope you never need to use it!

Thanks for posting the original question and thanks to all who responded. I, too, found the handle and guessed that was the purpose for which it was intended, and the manual will be of value.
