3000#? Seems like overkill for an egg. Would probably double your tongue weight!

Here is one that seems more in line:

And almost half the price.

Yes, I agree. Seems overkill for a trailer with a tongue weight less than 400#. Plus, as you said, it adds more weight.

Yeah, but I think the original OP is looking for an electric jack. For those with the smaller trailers, hand jacks work fine. But, electric saves on knuckles and prevents the "sweats."

Did you ever count the turns from all the way down to all the way up ?

I did one time when I was on a slope and had it all most all the way down.

200 turns from one end to the other. That's a lot of cranking.

I just went out and looked at the hand-crank tongue jack on my Fiber Stream, and it's rated to LIFT 3000 pounds and HOLD 5000 pounds static.

The cranking doesn't bother me, most times! It just seems that when I am gonna have a issue hitching up the trailer, it's one of those 100 degree days and no matter what,

I crank, hitch up. It's not right, un-hitch, crank it back up, on and on and on............ Till I get it right. But by then I am sweaty, upset, cranky etc........ Why can't the issues happen when it's a nice day rather than the hottest day of the year? I have been gonna buy one since last summer, guess I need to get it done.


This one seem reasonable compared to the one I had looked at, at the rv dealership.
