jack for hitch

Amazon 4500# delivered to our next camp ground to save my shoulder. I really like it and I can lift the jeep to attach the chain unit on the Anderson.
Jack

Ahh ... I see what you are saying, the whole show ! I am hoping that the 3500 lb model would move like Jack LaLanne was inside ... smooth and quiet.

I remember using my jack in the late morning or early afternoon when all people are awake and only once when I arrive and once when I leave, for about 2 minutes. Using a generator is living a in a whole different dimension. If you live there you may not know it or understand it...

I knew you'd take the lure...
But, an electric jack that makes that sort of racket is like a fridge that doesn't cool.

I've camped in an all molded towable for a number of years in all kinds of campgrounds. I've heard slides moving in/out, jacks going up and down, etc., etc., etc., To ME, none of that is as annoying as someone who owns a barking dog and doesn't do anything about it. YMMV.

So see... it's about what you think is noisy.

Ok Gbaglo - choice, which is worse to you.
. you are a baby and your milk went bad in the refrigerator or you hear a whirring sound and someone screaming 'jack off' 'jack off'.

A little noise can be funny but a hungry baby is always stressful,

We were @ one campground and a camper came in and used a power impact wrench for their stabilizers. It was like going to the tire section of Sears!

I have to admit I get embarrassed by the noise of the electric jack, but it's only a few minutes and imho it is nothing compared to a couple hours of being downwind from someone's generator as we were in St. Mary's last summer. And don't get me started on someone's barking dog. I don't mind a couple of bow-wows, but the endless barking is very hard to take.
