Chief, you and I have a different definition of "happy outcome." I'm going to add it to my list of warranty items I plan to have fixed next time I get to the dealer. Coming up on my one year anniversary and I plan to cash in on this warranty. My jack works fine, it makes a groan at one second intervals. I don't know what the internal mechanism looks like but I picture something flat spotted and rubbing somehow. On perfectly level ground it's pretty quiet. No sound when not under load.

As a side note, does anybody know of a way to set the tongue down on something like a castoring dolly and move it with a golf cart? I've got a 10ft door I need to navigate into and by truck is extremely difficult.

Consider something like this.

High Quality Heavy Duty Powered Motorized Trailer Dolly - 5000lb Capacity

This is for concept reason only. There are many others, some 110 electric and some gas powered.

Controlling a dolly with a golf cart is going to be trickle

Yep, that's perfect! $1300 hard to beat too. Kind of wish it had a Briggs on it though.

The golf cart would only be used for very slow movement on paved level surface and all the tongue weight on the dolly itself. But yeah... don't want to go putting it through the back of the garage either.
