A trailer tongue jack is designed to lift the front of the trailer, so you first need to know how much this is. The most accurate way to determining trailer tongue weight is to, well, weigh your trailer.

So every time she has had to hitch up, which is often, raising and lowering her jack has darn near thrown her back back out. To make matters worse, with an e2 weight distribution hitch she loathes, she has to (usually) RAISE the jack up to get the coupler high enough to clear the ball, LOWER it down onto the ball. Then she has to again RAISE the hitch way up, literally lifting the back of the truck, so she can get her weight distribution bars high enough to install them. Finally, she has to LOWER it back down until the jack foot is all the way up. That's a lot of cranking and it makes Kelly cranky. (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)
