Maybe you're lucky, and your trailer has so little tongue weight that you don't need a jack. But for anything bigger than a small utility trailer, you'll need a jack. Even on a small trailer it's handy, just to keep the trailer flat while loading and unloading it. But most trailers need a jack just to get them on and off the hitch ball. Don't put up with a rusty, bent or worn-out jack that fights you every time you need to lift the trailer. Years of abuse and neglect are not kind to the mechanism inside a jack, and a single instance of not lifting the jack back up far enough after hitching up can result in a ground strike that leaves it sprung out of alignment. Replacement will make your day shorter.
If you have a heavy trailer, it can take a lot of time and a lot of muscle to crank the tongue up high enough of clear the hitch ball. Add in a lot of time to retract the jack far enough to clear the ground underway and you can see why a 20speed jack might be worth it. Plenty of mechanical advantage to lift, and faster travel when the foot is not on the ground. Typical gear ratios in these jacks offer a 3:1 ratio, reducing the number of turns or an inch of travel from 29 to only 9.
Better yet, a powered jack takes all the effort out of hooking up or spotting a trailer. No more huffing and puffing or getting blisters turning the crank. If you hitch up and drop off regularly, this is a real timesaver.
