The leveling jack(?)that comes with the r-pod...is there a certain size wheel that fits into it so you can maneuver the trailer into different positions once it is parked?

The Rpod is to heavy to move manually.

I move mine with a 3 wheel dolly I purchased at Northern Tool.  Works very well IF you're on a solid (concrete, etc.) , LEVEL surface.  I would not attempt it on a less than level surface.

I bought a wheel that slips onto the jack and is held by a clip.  I park it for the winter in the barn which has a smooth concrete floor.  It will move some with some effort.  I also have a "dog dish"  shaped plastic foot that we set the wheel in when camped - as a brake and to spread out the weight on dirt or gravel.   Do not leave the wheel on when going down the road as it greatly reduces clearance.
