"Power" trailer jacks

I hate cranking leveling jacks so I always take my cordless drill with an adapter and a 3/4" socket. Makes it a lot easier & I can get to happy hour quicker.

I think most of us do things like that as we get OLDER

Same here. I made my first one out of an old "Gator" socket that was given to me that I found absolutely useless and a 3/8" steel rod. Welded them together and I had a nice long extender for my socket. After hitting a local store much like an Army Navy store I found a cheep socket and 1/2" drill adapter for less than $3 so I snapped 'em up. Now I have 2 in case I forget one.

Same here. Been drilling them since day two.

My cousin uses a battery powered impact wrench and swears by it but my trusty Craftsman 19.2 volt hasn't let me down yet. Well, unless I want it to!

I had a cheap "taiwan" 1/2" drive 6 inch extension that i ground the end off of that attached to the ratchet. Now I can insert it into my Ryobi 18v cordless drill, and also use a taiwan 3/4" 6pt. socket. Works GREAT as a power jack tool!! Randy

Sweet Wife does ours, usually while I'm hooking up utilities.

It's just not that big of a deal on our trailer, and since I tow with an F-150, I'd rather just lighten up!
