Those pictures were worth a thousand words. - SOLD!!!!
My wiffletree is at the back of the trailer. Even if I let the coupler jack all the way down the back is still too low.
How did you get yours out, some sort of tool?
Pried it with a screw driver i think. Don't let it fall on you! The harder part is getting it back in. I wedged back in by levering it awkwardly with a thinner screwdriver. It's weird. Don't give up!
I would worry if I use ramp designed for auto/trucks. I just lower the tongue ALL the way down and did not have any trouble lubing the whiffletree. Of course the wheels are chocked. I do that in my garage.
As for lubing the bearings, you gonna need stand under tubular frame, not under the "C" frame. the stand might slip off and camper falls on you. The stand might bust a hole under floor. then you got a new pee hole.
Yes the cover is heavy. First I take off all screws but 4 (one each corner). If you have a stand or jack, it is a good time to put the stand or jack under the cover. take all 4 off. Then the stand or jack is holding the cover for you. That's what I do.
My whiffletree has 2 grease fittings, one on top in front, one on the bottom in the back. No need to remove the cover.
Technically, the Dutchman does not have a wiffletree. You have a Goshen lift system and it is called a master tube. The wiffletree is another design.
I think this is what a wiffletree is....
If you have a whiffletree, the cover must come off in order to replace old lube with new lube. Only Coleman popups have whiffletree.
