Turning Head on Electric Tongue Jack

I was thinking of turning the head on my electric tongue jack 90 degrees. Anyone done it?

I assume this will facilitate lowering the tailgate while hitched?

We installed an ultrafab on our old one, the key is simply lining up the holes. If the holes line up you should be ok. Easiest thing to do is hitch the tt to your TV while you move the Jack.

Thanks anaro. Does'nt say anything in the manual. Looked at a similar model and basically said to turn it with out lifting it. (meaning the head) I am going to try it.

Ours we removed the manual Jack and bolted the new one on so we were able to rotate the whole thing to position it how we wanted it.

Not very good pics but they are all I have and I sold the tt last week so I can't get more.

When I turned my barker , I just loosened the set screws and turned the head only . The 3 bolts on the frame stayed put...

I'm curious to do the same with my jack. I see the two bolts on the side under the rubber plugs but I don't have a long enough screwdriver to take the cover apart to see what's going on under there before I start removing bolts. Anyone know if these are the bolts that secure the head to the tube and gears?

I have not tried it yet. Been a month now with an ankle fracture. Looking to get it done asap. You figure it out let me know.
