Replacing manual tongue jack

Our 2010 Kodiak 20 fl came with a manual hand crank tongue jack. I am thinking about replacing it with an dc electric tongue jack. Any suggestions on what to look for ie make model lifting capacity,lifting height, wiring etc etc.

Appreciate your comments

Re: Replacing manual tongue jack

There was one for sale on here awhile ago, I don't know what happened to the posting. The one that came on our Aerolite of about the same size is a Lippert and probably available from your Kodiak dealer just east of Kamloops. As much as I've used the jack, I'm very happy with it.

Re: Replacing manual tongue jack

Lots of universal mounting and duplication amongst manufacturers. You can have a choice of the lifting capability with a higher cost for the heavier lifting capacities. You basically have a choice of buying a cheaper, less capacity model, that you will leave on this smaller trailer when you sell it or keep your manual jack, that came with the trailer, and purchase a higher capacity jack that you can keep after selling this trailer and use on your next, bigger trailer, after putting the manual jack back on this trailer. So the decision is how do you want to spend your money. I guess you also have the choice of selling the manual jack on Ebay, Craig's list or a local online site or flea market.

Personally, we bought the bigger model, on sale. The price difference wasn't that much and you certainly wouldn't want to error on the light side.
