At the touch of a button you can easily move your large caravan or boat without breaking your back! This unit features a 350W (approx. ½ horse power) DC motor which is permanently connected to a sealed gearbox. The gearbox drives the heavily cast 7-1/2” (190mm) dia. wheel, which has a solid ribbed tread 3” (75mm) wide tyre. The unit has a standard mast which clamps to your trailer in the usual way. A jackscrew winder raises and lowers you trailer in the usual way as well. Attached to the motor gearbox assembly is the motor controller electrics and electrical connector. A heavy cast socket accepts the steering tiller which has a convenient forward/reverse rocker switch in the handle.
This tiller enables you to steer the motorised jockey wheel in any direction to park your trailer into the tightest of spaces very, very easily. You will need a source of 12V power. Fortunately, this unit comes with a kit with 3 (THREE!) separate power leads depending on what your preference is. Firstly, you can use the cable that is fitted with a 50A Anderson plug. You may wish to fit an Anderson plug adaptor TEP080 to the trailer chassis near where the jockey wheel is located, and run a permanent cable back to the house battery power. You then simply plug the jockey wheel in when you need it.
Or, you use the power lead with alligator clips and connect to, say, a car battery. Or, you can put 2 x TEA189 12V 12Ah batteries (24Ah total) in a bag (such as our RAC710 or TKA002) and keep the wiring set in the bag as well to plug into the jockey wheel when you need it. And yes, you will have to charge up the unspillable batteries occasionally, but this is a pretty cheap and simple solution that does not involve much wiring.
