Hello Ann:
Not 100% sure I understand this post, but it sounds like you are looking for a New or
replacement hitch jack, with a wheel, which would enable you to actually push the trailer if need be?
There is a place in Mississauga Ont that sells New tongue jacks (2500 lbs capacity) which is more than sufficient, and they sell them for about $20 CDN, the wheel would be extra.

See below, as I am going to pick one up from them this week.
I hope that helps?

Follow the link below and look at Part# 78-R2000AFT

I put an electric one on last year,
and it's one of the very best Mods I,ve done this far.
Even my wife likes using the jack (thingy) now.

Picked it up a Princess Auto (on Sale of course).

The electric jack just bolts up the the front tonge.
Push the button on it, and your trailer will go up(or)down without any cranking whatsoever.


Just connects to 12 volt batterie.

Looks like the one shown here.

I am thinking that if a wheel is wanted "for easy moving" an electric tonuge jack isn't necessary. If the tounge is heavy enough to need an electric jack you are not going tobe rolling it around.

Just saying...

that's kind of over kill for us I don't mind cranking
we can lift the tongue & move the sucker by hand --just thought a jack thingy would be easier is all

Thanks for the input!!
