OK, I'm an idiot. Got it working and it's a beaut! So thrilled to know that hopefully I'll never manually crank again!

What size did you end up getting? I saw someone had mentioned that you probably need a 2". Did that work for you? I have an X18D and from my measurements it looks like it is 2.25", but I'm doubting my measurement, because it seems like such a small trailer that I would expect it to be the smaller size. Also, how close does the front bunk come to the jack? Is there plenty of clearance? I'm looking at getting the Barker VIP as well, but I can't find the height on their website. I thought I saw on a post somewhere on here where you have to be careful of that with the fold down beds.

I did end up with the 2" post. It fits perfectly. Only pain was the round mounting plate versus the trapezoidal original one. I had to grind the front edge flat so it would fit better. As far as the front bunk goes, there are no issues there. The top of the tongue jack sits lower than the top of the propane bottle, so I've got more clearance for the jack than I do the propane bottle. lol I think that only comes into play if you get the type that has a lift of greater than 18". Those sit pretty high and I would think would cause a problem for sure. Good luck! You'll love your Barker!

Do these power jacks have a manual crank option?

X17Z Electric Tongue Jack Suggestions

I just ordered a Husky Brute 4,500 jack with remote fob from Amazon for my x20e. Will let everyone know how it goes once it is received and installed.

I wonder why they make all the mounting plates round forcing people to cut them to fit.

Most of them do and will say so. They are not really good if the jack breaks but they do have them. I kept the original jack that came with mine just in case and have had to use it one time when a cheap jack broke.

Any auto parts store will have good connectors. I would suggest spending a little more $ for the heat shrink connectors.
