Great little pivoting tongue jack foot!

First, I'm not selling them or connected to them in any way. I just walked into the RV place today and saw one on the shelf.

It's made by a company called Fastway and the product is called Fastway® Flip™ Automatic Jack Foot.

website - http://www.fastwaytrailer.com/flip/

Company propaganda:



Here's a pretty young lady trying to sell you one (voice is a bit annoying though):



I gotta say, this is one cool piece of kit!

I like that in drops 6 inches from the tongue in a second. Really cuts down on the jacking time.

The battery doesn't have to crank my power jack all the way down (or you won't have to crank as much) and it also gives my jack another 6 inches of height. That's great when your driveway or campsite isn't level. Saves me from stacking wood under the jack just to get the trailer level in my sloping driveway. I used to have to add 3 pieces of 2x4 just to give the jack enough reach to get the whole rig level but now it reaches with lots of room to spare.

It's also pretty cool how it pivots up and down on it's own!

It cost me 40 bucks for the whole shebang.

Well, it up to you whether or not you like it or go looking for one. But I think it's great.

I like it! Will have to investigate a bit more, but looks like it sure beats carrying around the railroad tie I always have to throw in the back of the truck.

I put one on our new trailer last year and love. Don't have to carry a piece of wood t put under the jack leg, just crank it down in place. And the additional length it adds does reduce the amount of jacking required.

I would recommend it to anyone.

Saw it @ Travelland RV Supercenter (Langley,BC)

I was in the parts department @ Travelland RV Supercenter in Langley, BC yesterday. Wasn't sure what it was until reading this post. Now I'm thinking of going back and picking one up. I would still place a small piece of wood 12"x12"x2".
