After looking at the pictures It appears the lift bracket on the left side of the tongue is already gone. They come in pairs usually.U will get new ones with a new hitch setup. It looks like there is a spare rack under the front also. Someone took the jack.you can buy either electric or Manual. Look around for the wiring. Id put in a manual myself .Ours has a manual,but came with electric and the PO replaced it cause it didnt work. Then after having the trailer a yr I found out why. DEAD CIRCUIT BREAKER. OH well my manual works just fine.When I can't crank it anymore,I will either get electric one or sell da traylor.

My electric seems to be having issues. Last few times I've used it, I have had to tap (read: slap) the casing once or twice to get it to kick in. Seems that there is a dead spot (reminiscent of an old car starter) that just needs to be nudged a bit to get contact. I've attempted to pull the cover but the short wiring doesn't allow great access. Anyone recognize my problem? Is there a fix? I have no manual crank so I plan to keep a jack handy from now on in case the slapping stops working.

I had the exact same issue on my 75 and the slapping and beating on the motor was getting worse. I pulled the unit apart and found that the brushes for the motor were worn down to nothing. The armature was also scored badly. I replaced the jack.
