Casita Electric Jack Question

Hello! I have a new pre owned 2012 Casita 17' Spirit with an electric jack. Lucky me! I was watching a video that said I should carry a manual jack (crank?) in case the electric jack or battery fails. No such crank came with my Casita and I have looked over the tongue and see no place I could even put a manual crank. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide. Sherri

I have never seen one in person, but think the manual crank is a dog-leg affair that goes in the top of the jack somewhere. Where in Florida? We are in Tally.

The Casita website indicates that they will sell you a Barker VIP 3,500 lb tongue jack. You will need to verify if this is the unit on your Casita.

If so, the manual and parts list can be downloaded at

I hope this helps.
