Jack replacement

My 2012 Scamp 13' came with an Atwood A-frame tongue jack rated at 750#. I had a couple of issues: no wheel/caster for the foot, the side-wind handle didn't clear the dual propane tanks, and the tailgate on my F150 couldn't be lowered all the way. So …

I replaced the 750# Atwood jack with a 5000# Bulldog (model 155032) along with a removable wheel/caster and a removable foot. Total parts price around $75US.

Overkill, perhaps, but …

The benefits: I can drop the F150 tailgate all the way, the top-wind handle clears the propane tanks (and it's VERY easy to raise/lower) and my GF can push the Scamp into its parking space while I relax and play my mandolin. I need to get one of those wheel leveling thingies so that she can get everything perfect before she refills my drink.

Life is pretty darn good!
