Electric tongue jack

My Jayco Jay Flight 29 RKS came with an electric tongue jack. It's did not come with a manual crank handle. Have been searching trying to find the one and can not match up the tongue jack with a certain manual crank handle. The model on the jack says FIC 3500- 2. Does anybody know if it's a standard size or where I can get this manual crank handle. Thank you in advance

I would be asking the dealer. It should have come with the unit.

Ours didn't come with one either. I think they expect you to use a breaker bar or ratchet, with an extension, and socket. I think ours is a 3/4" socket.

I tested mine once with a socket just to make sure it could be done. I got a handle with mine, so I didn't NEED to use a socket, but I wanted to know I had a redundant manual solution. I don't recall what the size was, but JFlightRisk sounds right at 3/4".

It may be a moot point anyway; if yours is anything like mine was, it will fail soon anyway. Then you can get a good quality jack and not have to worry so much about the manual override.

Both of my Jay Flights came with a manual crank handle. Good to know it can be done with a socket also.

Mine works with a 3/4" deep socket. Turns very easy
