Automating the Up and Down of the Legs on the Scamp

I know there a couple of guys have done this cool thing to their 5vers like the "Big Guys" have. Seems my husband is done attaching the cordless to the crank. Needs some recommendations as to the device.

Some folks have used this one.

Atwood RV Motor Kit 5th Wheel Landing Gear 75391 - $235.30

Seems to work well, but it is expensive. There may be cheaper options. There are several threads discussing it. Here's one:

Convert landing gear to electric on Scamp 5er

Just installed landing gear motor on 2011 Scamp 5'er

Installed motor & switch+wiring for Scamp 19 landing gear for about $169.
Pics here. Unexpected hard part of the install was getting one of the two bolts that came with the motor to align with one of the gear box bolt holes on the Scamp (had to loosen screws on gearbox to allow the bolt to align); the rest of the install was not too hard.

So much better than cranking and cranking.
