My manual one broke just 24 hours ago after setting up this purchase! Karma I guess?

I hope it works better than these horrible reviews! Good advice to cover it except when using, that would probably cure most of these problems. And seems like it maybe not lubed enough from factory.

Have a porter cable sander that developed poor performance and when I disassembled the grease they used got hard and was causing issues with the bearings. I guess good grease is more expensive than crap grease LOL. If I open up I'll use waterproof grease and a cover. We do get a lot of rain here and tough environment on the gulf coast, but plan on covering it 100%.

Electric Jack

Those are some bad reviews and I hope they're not a problem with mine. But if your not happy with it when you get it or now we can cancel the deal. I wouldn't want to sell you anything that doesn't make you happy. I know how that feels and wouldn't want to be a ***
for $ spent. I just had it on the TH and now have MH and don't have a use for it anymore.
No problems that I know of on this jack.

Dirkdaddy I noticed a lot of negatives on the Stromberg-Carlson E-jack. But don't worry about it so far I have no problems with it after 2 years of use in rain and snow. A lot of times they don't tell the circumstances why the E-Jack failed. When you get your jack I would take the plastic cover off and take the gearbox cover off and grease the whole unit (also the bearing from the gears). Use some long tread grease. Also the tread what moves the jack up and down. Drill a hole in the bottom and bring in a #10 ground and fasten it directly to the motor. When you put the gearbox cover together you can put a plastic back over it for some extra protection. Spray some silicone spray on the switches (is a standard switch you can get at any automotive store). After you have put the plastic cover on you can use electrical tape for the seem. I still recommend to use a cover for it the keep it weather proof. Just use some tie-rips for the wiring on the jack to take the stress of the wiring connections. If you have any problems with this jack feel free to call me (can take it part in my sleep...lol)

Update on the Stromberg Carlson. If you having problems with the tailgate hitting the Jack Housing you can turn the housing 180 degrees, just remove the rubber plugs and remove the 5/16 bolts. Turn and reinstall the bolts and rubber caps again. If you can't access the switches because of the propane tank cover turn it 90 degrees. The holes are there but not tapped. Tap them with a 5/16 tap. A great Jack for a minimum price.
