Jack e up installed...

My first mod on my Bambi 16 Sport and Iím happy with the results. This allows removal of jack from trailer by just a quarter turn. Spend a lot of time hooked up and this allows me to lower my truck bed for easy access...
60 bucks at Northern Tool...
Quarter turn and jack is back in place
Store in my TV.

Very cool. I've not seen that before. My utility trailer has one of those manual tongue jacks that is mounted about where your propane tanks are, and then I can pull the pin and rotate the jack 90 degrees. This allows the truck tail gate to go all the way down.

Nice upgrade and will save a scratch on the tail gate if it got away from you.

Nice add on. My TV is an SUV with a swing up back door. 3" clearance so not needed. But someday a PU may be the TV. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting fix, havenít seen that before. Just donít forget the jack at home! Or set it in the ground at the CG before departing.

We have the Jack-E-Up also. We keep all the setup type tools in the bed of our pickup truck. Saves space on the Airstream. Facilitates setup and organization when arriving and leaving the campsite.
