Tool - What Is It?

Could someone please identify this tool and how it's used?

Hopefully I attached the image correctly?

Thanks,

That is a tool that is used to "manually" operate the front jack.

You use it by taking the jack head off, then inserting the tool in the center shaft, and then cank away, which ever direction that needs to be.

It is a manual crank handle to operate the power jack if you have no power or a jack motor failure. If it's like mine you have to unbolt the power head cover to access the screw mechanism. Not too user friendly.

yup - that exactly what it is.
and most of us make SURE we carry one with us for just that reason

however - in most cases, the bubble level at the top of the jack can be removed by twisting and lifting so you don't have to remove any screws from the head.

you might want to practice this ahead of time so you'll know how to do it
when the time comes - and it will!
