Quite a while ago I saw on one of the RV forums a slide accessory that you put under the tongue jack of a travel trailer. It would allow you to slide the tongue of the trailer left or right if you didn't back your hitch ball right under it. This allowed you to get close & do final adjustment with the slide. Does anyone know what this part is called & where you can purchase it? Thanks.....

Riverdog, it is called a SideWinder. Almost any of the RV stores and towwable dealerships should have one that could be ordered at least. I recommend RV Upgrades to be my first choice; they are a major sponsor of this website and great people to do business with.

Buy a hitch-mate and you can line-up correctly by yourself, even in the dark. Just visit rvupgrades from the above add and phone them.

I think you are talking about the TongueTwister by BAL. Just one seller is http://www.go2marine.com/product.do?no=12417F, but a quick Google search will get you more.

I have the TongueTwitster and love it. It speeds up my hitching process. I recommend.
