Howdy, agreed the differential in jack motion is due path length and resistance, I saw that right off the first time the rig was on the hitch and I was raising the gear the rest of the way up. However it's disturbing to hear that one jack stays put while the other side retracts a number in inches with the trailer on the ground. That would leave the grounded jack with a LOT of weight on it, and I don 't understand why it would not want to retract at the same rate as the other side. Is one of the cylinders pinched so the piston won't move as it should?
I can see unloaded jacks moving a little out of sync, but loaded? I have to watch for that!
