Electric Tongue Jack recommendations

Shopping for an electric tongue Jack.
Any recommendations on a specific one that has worked well and lasted?
Never had one before but sure would be nice to have!
American made would be top preference, but quiet operation also important.
Thanks for any help

Jeff

You did not state how heavy your unit's tongue weight is and this is a factor.
I have the Coleman 16 Fb I bought an electric jack from HF and have been happy with it, it bolted rght up to the old holes.

A 3500lb one will be sufficient as it's a 22ft hybrid.

Check the reviews on amazon. I do not remember which one I have. Most if not all are made in china.

Get one with a Remote. Costs a bit more, but you will not regret it.

Check out the Barker jack. Pretty good quality, much better than the one it replaced.

This is by far the best, and quietest jack out there. Fastest too.

Bought this one in April. From Amazon $129



Big Horn 3500 LBS Electric Trailer Tongue Jack - Sealed All-Weather Housing - Pre-Wired 7 Pin Connector
Big Horn
Sold by: J & R Wholesale



Works ok fit perfect on our 243 BHSL


Prewired connector. So you can actually use it right away plugged into your tow vehicle. And wire it like you want later.


Good luck
