Lift Jack

We have a level rite hi power 3000 lift jack that works 50% of the time. I have had it! Ordered a new one (Odyssey 4000 lb Electric Tongue Jack - Black] from Camping World. Just got it, I did not think about the size of the head on the unit, it is 3 inches from the shaft post which is not going to fit due to the cover on the propane tanks. The instructions say I can mount it with the front towards the driver's side which would fit due to it has one inch overhang. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks
Chuck

Can you rotate the hitch (connects with three threaded bolts to the a-frame) so that the motor faces one side or the other?

The instructions say I can do that, however I better go look at the bolt hole pattern. I just looked at the bolt pattern and it looks like the bolt plate would have to be drilled to match the holes on the trailer tongue if I turn it facing the drivers side. Unless the head of the new lift can be rotated. I think I should just take the old one off and see how the new one fits. I also noticed the new one comes with a hot and ground wire, the old one only has a hot, so it must be grounded via the bolts holding it to the frame.

I think the head can be rotated on the jack post for clearance.

I just got off the phone with Odyssey, the head can only be rotated 180 degrees, this does no good at all. They are emailing me a drill template so I can rotate the whole unit 90 degrees which will clear the propane cover. They told me the new units being made have the new hole pattern on them. I bought this one from Camping World--the ones in stock there have not got the new hole pattern.
