And, as befits a 36ft long caravan, looks like it has 3 phase power plugged into it ;D ;D ;D

2. Would I be better using a second hand Toyota bottle jack and modifying it with an extra long home made socket extension to run it off a battery drill?

This IMHO, plenty already come with a pretty long handle or you can buy extra extensions if needed, then you also still have a manual fail-safe if the electrics fail as well.

The jack has to go under the axle just inside the roll bar bracket to clear all of the water tanks. So  along handle is the go.



This means that the 200 Series extension handle is not long enough and is a bit wonky at the angle it has to sit. But it's a great jack and I think I can get a second hand one for not much money. If I can weld a socket adaptor onto the round jack handle mount at the jack base and attach a uni joint with a longer handle, it should work a bit better, maybe with a battery drill.

The 12 volt ones all seem  to be a bit Shite, so does this idea sound practical?

instead of coming in from teh back of the trailer, can you come in on the side? maybe make up a plate mount to steady it, use the car stand and :) :) :) is your uncle?

Hi,
   Not really, I didn't propose uniformity of costs across all regions. The Gold Coast/Tweed Head and other border communities just emphasise the obsolescence we have inherited.

STD 2 piece extension for 2019 troopy, with 1/2” drive wobble joint, which fits on the extension end. Not sure how usable it would be with a drill, at that length though🤔.

Hmmm,
We really need to revise the whole vehicle-rego-taxes-licence-location palava that now is over 100 years old, and really no longer fit for purpose.

what bring everyones rego/insurance costs up to that of NSW... well thats one way to cut down on cars on the road ;)
