1960 tradewind towing problem

I'm adding a picture so you can see my problem: Reese manufacturer contacted and their flex sway won't work because of jack placement. Any ideas for seay contol on hydraulic hitch is welcome.

If that was my trailer I would get rid of the surge brakes and put on electric brakes. Or switch to disk brakes. Depends on your budget.

Can you easily relocate the jack to the center of the A-frame area?

From the picture, it's going to be in the way of pretty much ANY anti-sway hitch system...
