Hey Ron - thanks for the great ideas and the awesome pic. Very helpful.
I had not thought of cranking up the tongue a bit to gain a bit more space. Silly me. of course! :-)
then lower to level, to dump.
(thank goodness a bunch of wise people firmly told me to get the power tongue jack!)
and... if need be, i could buy an inexpensive 'creeper' (is that the proper name?) to lie on it, on my back, and easily scoot under the Escape and hook up.
and... I like to store my travel trailer on some particle board or similar, just to keep the rubber off the concrete. It is my understanding that this can help reduce the slightly bad interaction between concrete and rubber, over time. (but that is a whole different debate)
