Re: Has anyone tried a Fastway Automatic Jack Foot?

or just get a electric tounge jack, i have always wanted to put one on all our other trailers and never got around to but when i ordered the 19ft i had one put on and love it, i just got a old fashioned steel foot that goes on before i put the jack down and it is nice and quick and easy, i also changed the hooks on the safety chains to regular chain hooks with the spring loaded safety latch so hooking up and un hooking is super fast and easy.

This jack stand reduces cranking, is hard to leave, stores well and for under $20 works well for me.

Changing the safety chain connectors was one of the best things I did. One downpour while hooking up and they pay for themselves. I think they are called clevis hook with latch and make chaining up a breeze.

I did just what Paul uses on his trailer. I to was in a rain storm and spent some time hooking up the chains. I also use the red cone instead of blocks it is safer.
