How does the power tongue jack get installed? Is it as easy is just pulling out some bolts to take the old jack out and then put in new bolts with the new jack with a socket set?

How is it powered exactly? Does it attach to the battery? Does it have it's own battery?

Basically it is three bolts come out and you remove the manual jack, then reattach the electric jack. It is grounded through the bolts and the you run a fused hot wire directly to the battery. I am over simplifying a little, but there is not much too it. If you go to the Barker site, I believe there is an online .pdf at the Barker site or look at my signature and it is in there.

Are you getting this for the X17Z? If so, you really need to discuss this with the owner. The 17z has weight limits that could greatly be compromised by the addition by a power jack. If I was going to add this kind of weight to my 17Z I would get an extra propane tank or battery. Just wanted to make you are aware that this could be a problem because of the weight limits.

Campingdog,

Welcome to the Jayco forums!

Your correct that when working with a limit CCC that weight becomes important, especially when it's added to the A-frame area (tongue). For reference, I believe that an electric jack weights in the neighborhood of 20lbs to 25lbs.

Took care of any questions/potential problems and had ours installed by our dealer.

Besides I would have screwed up something.

Thanks for the input. Yes, the 17Z. My parents don't really keep anything in the RV when traveling. They try to put as much as possible in the truck. That should help offset any added weight of the power jack, right? We're still new to the game.
