Right adjustment for the jockey wheel


BOAC

Recommended Posts

I have an indelible ink line on the tube of my jockey wheel that shows me where to clamp the outer tube, and know that it will wind down enough to raise the hitch from the car and vice versa. Of course, if you are on a hillside there will need to be some adjustment, but 9 times out of 10 it will work.

I just look at what height the hitch is relative to my knee when I'm standing next to it.

I drop the JW till it’s about 2 inches of the ground then wind until clear of the ball.  This way I have enough scope to hitch back up again.  A bit like putting the marker on.

I just look at it - seem to get it right most of the time!

But a good idea and I'll contemplate marking it when we are away in a couple of weeks.
