How old is the trailer? If you've had it a long time, the jack may be getting ready to let go. Mine did that, and I had to have it replaced.
Yes, it's very hard to turn. We put WD40 on it and it's a little easier, but I think it's still harder than it should be.
It's a 1979 model and I'm pretty sure it's the original jack, so you're probably right. How much did it cost you to have it replaced?
