E-Pro 19QB Bike Rack

We ordered a new 19QB with the optional electric tongue jack and bike rack.

I have 2 questions:

1) I saw one yesterday and I'm wondering: can the electric tongue jack be operated manually (with the crank) with the bike rack in place?

2) Is anyone using the optional bike rack on for 2 adult bikes on a regular basis? Are you satisfied with it?

Thanks!

The bike rack is a little difficult to use at first, but once you get your supports set and learn which way to lift your bike is best for you, it's great. I like having the ability to keep an eye on them while going down the road. I see lots of different ways people put the bikes on but for us going putting the bikes opposite direction seems to work best. Good luck!

Thanks wevitt, do you put bikes one at the front and one at the back of the rack? That's what they seem to recommend, but it musn't be easy to do

Yes, with them facing opposite directions.

Yes

I have that bike rack on my 2109S. I have to put the higher bike on the rack that is closest to the trailer. I also had to remove the peddle because it was close to the window. I found it easier to put the bike on the back of the rack while the rack is on the ground and then lift it into place. The bolt is the same size as the stabilizer bolt so you can use you impact. Forest river has a replacement part for the bike rack that is straight up and down that replaces the offset in case yours didn't come with it. You can operate the jack manually with a ratchet wrench and a 10" extension.

Very useful information, thank you. I'll try the "put the bike on the rack and then put the rack on the support" approach - I'm not sure I would have thought about that.

And I'll make sure I have the ratchet handy just in case.
