OK, Now I know what your up to.
Try this as this is what I do. Put a 6" thick block of wood under the tongue jack. This will allow you to lift the tongue higher taking the load off the WD bars. I do this as I cannot snap up or unsnap not doing it on heavy tongue TT’s. I jack until I can just slightly wiggle the chain under tension. Then I know all most all the weight is off.
See this one pic on my older camper. That block of wood is standard camping gear.
I can relate to the grand kids “stuff”. Each time they come the back of the truck has at least twice the stuff in it….
Hope this helps. If it is not your issue, let us know. Will keep trying until we can get you up and going.
