If I had an excursion to tow with I don't think I'd have this issue but I haven't gotten the wife talked onto that one yet.

Any chance ov putting a receiver extention on the expedition hitch? I've seen them up to a foot that would give enough distance to get the gate up with no mods

the standard shank is a 10" length, 12 and 14" are available. the 14" gets you 4" without the extension. not sure if that goofy tongue jack head will rotate. if i remember right, that thing is wide as it is long. the 14" with a different jack would work though...

We have the same problem with our navigator. Took it to the forest river dealer and he said he can turn it for me. We need to be able to lift the tailgate as we haul a wheelchair in the back and need to be able to unload in while on the road. Thanks to OC and our dealer I think the problem is solved. Will know soon.

Ford Hauler we must have more varmints here in eastern Ky. They would crawl in and nest.

Sounds like a Ford problem to me!

I have an Expedition and had the same problem. I turned the head of the electric jack. It was very easy, and cost nothing. Just remove the rubber plug on the neck of the head. Take out the screw. Turn the head to the side. There should be a pre drilled hole already in the spot you need it. I did have to tap the hole so that the screw would thread in.

Hope this helps.

Which side of the head? There is a rubber plug on the top and both sides right?
