Electric Tongue Jack Size

I am looking for an electric tongue jack for my 314BDS and wonder what weight rating I should get. Can anyone who has one let me know what they have and how well it works?

I think a Barker VIP3500 would be ok.

I bought the Atwood 3500lb for <$200 on Amazon. It easily lifts over 1000lb TW plus my truck's rear end to put the WD bars on.

I installed the Barker VIP3500. I suggest getting the strongest rated jack possible.

Get the biggest one you can.. then when you buy a bigger trailer you can take it with you.
