We DO NOT have room on our 2013 15. It wouldn't even be close to level on our slightly sloped driveway. We LOVE the jack(Atwood 3000). The foot also as stated does not retract to 90 degrees. On our 15 it would be the lowest hanging item in the hitch area. So.... We have a Robo Foot we'd let go cheap that will be a better fit on a 19 or 21 and will fit any jack with the two left to right holes on the extended post.

I'm not surprised. The smallest trailers (of any brand) typically have quite low tongue height, and don't need this sort of hardware, which was invented for the larger "trailer on stilts" style that has become common.

I agree. Just looking at its design, it's clearly for a larger trailer with a higher tongue. One trip will let me know if it works on my 19.

Our 3000 model with Robo Foot towed just fine behind our Frontier. As for upslopes, the foot does pose a small problem. However, the foot can be removed without tools (just a clip to remove a pin) or, although I haven't tried it yet, it looks as if the foot can be held in an upright position while lowering the jack. This would effectively shorten the jack plenty. But like I said, I haven't tried that yet.

It came with the jack, I didn't order it and really didn't expect to use it, just thought I would try it and pass on my experiences with it to the forum. Couldn't find the jack without the inclusion of the Robofoot. I like the idea and if I had a bigger trailer, it would make a nice addition.

Hello Bob,
I selected not to use the robofoot. I used 6" detachable caster wheel or 6" foot plate with pin. The robofoot is 11" tall and my top of trailer tongue height is 19". I assume that it will have enough ground clearance. I have not try to attach the robofoot to the jack.

Huh....I had the Atwood 3000 installed by ETI (delivered in November), but there was no robofoot that came with it. I'm not sure I'd use it anyway, I prefer the yellow cone to keep the jack movement to a minimum. I do carry a wheel and a foot plate also.

I inquired about buying the Atwood 3000 and 4000 without the robofoot.


Hello Robert,
It is only soldwith the robo foot.The unit could beused without it and by just putting a standard foot on it, but that will loseabout 5 inches off the total travel of the jack.Thank you. Jeff
