For 2 years, I pulled a 2019 FC30Bunk with a ProPride hitch. Even with the jacks installed as far frontward as possible, I could only open the front locker about half-way. While we made it work (a pool noodle was useful to keep the door from directly impacting the jacks), the jacks greatly limited the utility of that storage space. The 30Bunk is really challenged for outside storage space, so this was a big bummer for us.
The problem still exists for my 2021 Classic 33 Twin, but I think the locker door might be smaller so I can actually open it a bit further.
I ordered the new jacks the moment Sean Woodruff posted them on the ProPride users Facebook page, with the hope this would allow better front locker access. My hope has been (mostly?) confirmed with the video evidence ProPride has shared, using new jacks on an Airstream in their shop. I'm more of a Reaganesque kind of guy ("Trust, but verify") so I'm not counting any chicks until I get my jacks delivered and installed. I'll confirm or refute the rumors then.
