Forgot to loosen my JT Strongarms once and was wondering why my front jacks seemed to be struggling! I started to hear a horrible metal crunching sound and realized what I had done and stopped them, they had not gone very far. I looked real quick for any damage and everything seemed alright and was working fine. A couple weeks later I was doing some work inside the front compartment and noticed the front of the metal tray compartment had buckled about a half an inch! I checked it out closely and everything seems in good working order, so I put some expanding foam in the gap and called it a day! We all do something dumb once in a while!

We have all been distracted and forgotten something. Started leaving a campground when I saw something in the passenger mirror. It was my bumper mount bbq! I had put away the bbq but left the mount out. Only an additional three feet on one side-no big deal! Just happy I didn't clip anyone else's trailer or car!

Left our fav cg at the Cape. Went to the beach to enjoy one more day and not the two hour traffic to get off the cape. Decided to take some load off by lowering the tongue jack. After 5 hours in the sun, forgot the jack was down. Dragged a good 3 ft line in the pavement. No damage to the jack. So either summer soft black top or a really good jack.

Two weeks or so ago I had some AC leaking issues at a campground. I picked up the stabs and raised the nose to see if that would help drain a little. It didn't, so I eyeballed it back to level and lowered the jacks. When I went to leave, I was trying to remove the screw jacks I put under the frame in the middle and couldn't get them to budge. I sat there for 30 min trying to figure out how I was going to get them out since, surely, the trailer had somehow settled on them. Then I realized I lowered the front end farther than I had when I originally set them up and just had to jack the front up a little.....felt rather stupid.

Yes, after the fact (I bought the Bull Dog 3500 because I needed to fix it in the campsite), I found the replacement tube for $40 on EBay. But I am actually happier with the Bull Dog 3500. It's a little shorter and smaller head so the lift gate on my Suburban now clears the jack.

Well that's good. Nothing more frustrating than having to unhook to get into the back.

Some people will do anything to get their lift gate to clear!
