Easy Lift Trailer Jack - Anyone use one?

Says put it on the axle than move trailer forward or backward (depends on which way you put the jack on the axel) to make jack work.

Cool, but I'm not sure, It might scramble your egg.

I had one of these jacks back in the '70s. Used it on a Champion 18' stickie and only had to use it once. It did the job. I let it go with the Champion back in about '84.

The only problem I see is that most fiberglass trailers use a square torflex type axle instead of a round axle with springs. I don't know how this jack would act when trying to make it's way around a square tube.

Yeah Dexter says... don't jack on a torsion axle. But it may be the ticket for someone with a straight axle and springs. Of course, I'd want someone to tell me to STOP before I went completely over the thing and had to start from scratch. Think I'll stick with my BAL leveler
