Recommendations for tongue jack replacement?

Our camper is a 2017 212QBW that we tow with a 2019 F-250.

We live on a long gravel road with water bars that have caught the bottom of our tongue jack. I have removed the "foot" and that has helped.
Recently, we hit a water bar with the jack fully retracted and the contact destroyed it. Any suggestions for a replacement that will have a high clearance? I am good with manual or electric. Thanks!

In the for what it's worth department, we have a Bulldog 4000# power jack on our 19RD. The baby brother to your trailer.

The foot is a separate piece that can be raised or lowered to accommodate different degrees of front to back unlevel sites. With the drop foot fully up, and the leg retracted, there's no way for it to contact anything first, before the hitch head does. We don't even have to retract the leg to full up stop, maybe an inch or two shy of it.
If you're going to "regret it in the morning", sleep until noon.

I looked at a few online and saw no measurement of the distance between support bracket and bottom of jack. You might call a big firm like Etrailer and they might have that information.
Alternatively, you could add a spacer between the trailer and the bracket and raise it up a bit.

Most only have three bolts mounted to the frame.
Since your road is that rough I would remove the jack and remount as needed.
