Save yourself further grief and buy a quality tongue jack. The FIC3500 is a very poor quality jack. I replaced mine the first year with this one. Hasn't failed once and is more powerful.

I agree that replacing is the better way. Put a new motor in and find the shaft is bent and it was a waste??

3 bolts, 1 wire and done. I have replaced 3 manual ones with power ones and it is simple. Either block up the tongue with plenty of wheel chocks or hitch it up. Then manually pull up the jack to no weight on the bolts and pull them off. Shine up the area under the bolts so good ground and put the bolts or new ones back in. Connect the positive cable back up and test. DONE.

Thank you both, Route 66 Traveler and RogerR.
I take it the bolt holes line up for all tongue jacks? I noticed the Husky has a round plate, while the FIC has a triangular one.

Yes they will line up. Good idea as well to purchase a cover.

Joe w is right. The holes should match up and get a cover. I use a rubber bag style off Amazon while traveling and a 2 gallon bucket in storage. Use a bungee to hold both on so wind won't knock them off. I also secure my hitch plug cable up under the bucket during storage to keep water off it.

Ah yes, a cover was the first thing I bought, right at the beginning when I thought rust might have been the problem ��
