I have a Jay-Feather ex-port 17C with the tongue jack. Would not be with out it. If you are using a WDH it makes things so much easier.

It would be nice, but I helped a guy last summer just to get it working. Just one more thing to go wrong. It takes little effort to crank it down.

I also agree our 23f came with a powered one great for the weight distribution hitch, I also have a 20' cargo trailer we use for everything and really wanted to put one one there for the same reason but the battery and cost have put that off for awhile. When the cargo trailer is empty no problem but full that hand crank gets old fast.

i added the cheap harbor freight one to my 16xrb only because i couldnt crank the handle with the oversized spare tire on my jeep, but i def like doing it the easy way now lol. and there is a hand crank you put in the top if it breaks or you have no power for some reason.

My X17C had a manual jack. Did that for a season and got tired of raising/lowering multiple times to attach/unhook the WDH. Bought the Harbor Freight electric when they were running a 25% off coupon and have been happy with it. It's noisier than electrics that I've had on previous trailers but does the job. When it's 90+ degrees outside, I don't like having to use a manual jack. Well worth the $100!
