Tongue jack

We have a 2012 wildwood x lite TT. I noticed soon after that the jack isn't mounted straight up & down. It has an angle to it, (the top tilted to the back). The a-frame is level in relation to the main frame, & with a carpenters square, the jack is noticeably angled. The dealer didn't seem concerned about it when I addressed it. Has anyone else noticed this? I've attached a picture, the propane tank cover is vertical.

For the most part I would not be concerned.
As long as it does what it's supposed to.
My guess is the triangular bracket mount was welded on the jack just slightly askew.

Or someone forgot to chock the wheels and it rolled backwards a little.

On another note do you have any problems getting the coupler lock on? I use the same type and need to adjust it because it's a tight fit.

Does yours have an adjustment nut underneath ?

No idea. If I did would it get in the way of hitching up?

I'm clueless about the nut but willing to take a peek when I get my trailer back.


PS
Sorry for the highjack.

I contacted another dealer for a second opinion. They said as long as the jack works properly, to not be concerned. It was probably not welded on quite right. It does work properly & more importantly, nothing is bent.
I also have to angle the tongue lock, as it doesn't sit properly. I can still get it on though.
Thanks for your reply!

Same here too. Think it could be a tad wider to fit easier.

You know this would be an excellent time to convince the DW about the need for a power tongue jack... I would never have a TT without one again. Might be worth a shot...

I don't mind the manual jack, though, I'm used to cranking semi trailer landing gear on a daily basis, so a little jack is no problem. .
