Tongue Jack

I have a Jayco 23D and I am considering the purchase of an electric tongue jack. The question I have is the lifting weight. Gross weight of trailer is 5000lbs. Can anyone please provide any recommendations?

I went with the Barker VIP 3500... cost was around $200 and I got it off eBay. My TT is around 6k lbs.

get the biggest one you can afford as you are also lifting the back of the tow vehicle when you attach the weight jacker bars
