Best electric tongue jack?

Any recommendations re electric tongue jacks? Been researching online and all seem to be problematic Is it just another of those things waiting to fail? Most of the time I can crank to get the weight distribution on and off, but sometimes I need to call in the "muscles" It is important to me to be able to hitch and unhitch by myself and I am short, old (er) and female. I want to be able to handle it all without brute strength if possible! The ability to manual crank if necessary would be important also. The disconnect between the product blurbs and user reviews is quite startling

The last power tongue jack I bought, I paid $99 for a refurbished unit and it lasted the life of the camper. There truly isn't much that can go wrong, and the very few that do have problems, will be the only ones you will hear about. That said,, is where I bought my last one.
