The UltraFab has a connection for a socket, provided, to manually crank. Most all of the units have this ability. It is slower but will get you out of trouble.

Our Barker 3500# jack also has a hand crank that can be accessed by removing the compass on top of the motor.

The new Jay Flight came with the Atwood! So far so good (but new...). It would be hard to go back at this point! I was worried about reliability but the service tech said they're really reliable and most of the failures he's seen are just a fuse (easy to access on ours) or bad connection.

Hey Sean, normally I would agree, less to go wrong is a great way to go.. but another remote? Yes please. Besides.. DW has spoken and wants the remote so she can walk inside the TT and level the fridge without having to bother with the Up, down, no up .. no down chatter we're going through now on the FRS radios.

I added a Husky 4500 this Spring and it works great, no issues so far and a cinch to install.

I had a Jayco 28RLS which I installed a 3500lb Atwood Power Hitch. It came with a manual crank in case of failure. Shop online for prices you can save a lot of $.
