Electric Tongue Jack

Hi-
I wan't to install a power tongue jack to my 2010 Jay Flight 24RKS and need to know if the hole in the tongue is 2" or 2 1/4" so I know what jack to purchase. I'm looking at the Husky Brute 4500 or the Barker VIP 3500.
I emailed Jayco asking for the information and they were less than helpful with their response:

Thank you for contacting Jayco Customer Service.

I do not show that a electric tongue jack to be an option for your unit. With that said, we can not provide information that was not factory tested for your specific unit.

Unfortunately Jayco does not sell parts to retail nor do we have parts pricing as this is all handled by the Jayco dealerships.


Also, looking for advice on which one to buy, the Husky or Barker.....

A trailer that size likely has the 2 1/4" hole, perhaps someone will confirm. Here is a poll/discussion on power jacks:

Our 24RKS is a 2011, it has a 2 1/4 inch hole. We had a power jack added as part of the deal when we bought. Dealer installed an Atwood 2500 deluxe. Been using it for two years and have had no problems.

Purchased the Barker VIP 3500 from Amazon. Can't wait... no more manual cranking up and down.
