Tried removing hitch bars and the front and back drug. On a trip now and when I get home I will make some straps like scoot suggested and let her drag.

If you can't move the jacks forward a little, that's exactly what I'd do., install a 1/4" thick steel loop attached to the frame to protect the motor and let it drag momentarily.

Out of curiosity, if it's just a little bit of dragging, why not put boards down to drive onto to give you an extra inch or two of lift?

Here is an update on the trailer dragging. After our trip to Williamsburg, I did what OldCoot suggested and moved the rear jacks forward. I drilled into the frame an raised the jacks about four inches. Before anyone says I voided my warranty by drilling, it was either that or tearing off the jacks.

I am just back from a three day trip and the trailer never drug leaving or pulling in.

Glad it worked out for you. Hopefully the jacks weren't damaged prior to you moving them.
