If a trailer didn't have a trailer jack, this means of transport would be pretty much useless – unless you are strong enough to lift it by hands or hitch (unhitch) a tow vehicle somehow else. Jacks can be manual and electric. With the help of an electric jack, you can hitch up substantially easier than with the manual unit, since a manual jack requires the application of physical force. Anyway, whatever the trailer jack you have, this part has to be completely workable and sufficiently reliable to prevent troubles during a journey under various conditions.

It fits great, looks good, and stays in place while driving... one bit of advice though: my level blistered, or shattered, I'm assuming from heat. the cover basically rests right on top of the level. I contacted etrailer and they sent me a new level. I have a foam insulator between the level and the cover now. 541015

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. Or you can spitball by figuring out what 15% of your trailer's maximum weight is, as tongue weight should be no more than 15% of the weight of your trailer.
