Electric Tongue Jack

Which electric jack would work best on a Jayco Feather 16XRB that is available in Canada? Currently hand cranking and not happy about it!

I bought a cheap 3500# electric jack on eBay for around $90. It works perfect and has lasted several years already. I don't need the best one out there... just one that works well.

If it quit working, I'd buy the same one again.

You might look on eBay Canada

I bought at 3500lb electric tongue jack from Princess Auto ($150) for my last trailer (Jay Feather 213) and it worked like a champ.

My first was an eBay special and it lasted about 7 years but went bad due to rain getting inside and rusting everything. Bought another - again around $100 - this time I bought one of the weatherproof bags to put over it. I figure for an extra $9 it was worth it especially if it makes it last a couple more years.

Do you have a Princess Auto near you?

Is there a place on an electric tongue jack to lubricate? 2014 Flight 26BH.
Thanks, Mike

Sorry to add on, but I have a related question. What type of electric jack would you recommend for an x17z, and how much weight would it add? I've been thinking about adding one, but as all x17z owners know, you have to watch the weight on these rigs.

Get the biggest baddest tongue jack you can. you will need to lift the rear of the truck hooked to the trailer to attach the equalizer bars and if you buy a bigger trailer you can just move the jack over...

Got one from Harbor Freight. They have 25% off coupon this weekend; regular price ois $140 now so you could get it for $105.. 4 years so far and works like a pro! A bit noisy but it doesn't bother me. I keep a 1 gallon bucket over it at all times to make it "waterproof"!
