    Default Remove Trailer Jack

    Looking to replace trailer jack but cant figure out how to remove it. 10 yr old trailer has a pivot, single-bolt mount jack. Problem is the head of the bolt (trailer side) looks like its soldered/welded on so I cant get crescent wrench around it, and the nut (jack side) is behind the jack leg so cant get ratchet on it. Here's some pics:

    Make special tools.-----Get a boat shop to take it off.-----Cut the welds and replace it with a bolt-on jack.----Your choice.

    shallow offset box wrench....if that doesn't work, I'd take it to a welding shop and let them cut it off w/ a torch...
