Be careful using it! Our friends Lippert gave out when close to fully extended dropping the front of the TT. Fortunately no one was hurt and no damage to TT.

I vote for the Barker. My Barker motor failed after 6 years, sent it back to the factory they repaired/replaced it no charge. The replacement motor lasted another 8 years and was still working when I traded my trailer.

And this is a perfect case in point as to why RV manufacturers build things as cheaply as possible. If the bulk of people won't pay an extra $100 for an American made tongue jack that WORKS and is backed by GREAT customer service, then why would we pay thousands extra for a better built camper???? What it boils down to is that most people want the cheapest and best at the same time, and it rarely works like that. Rant over.

I wish I could figure out what mine is. I installed on my 1991 Coachman in 1991 afer shoulder surgery. It has also been on my 1995 Prowler, 1999 Wildwood, 2000 Sunline, 2006 Holiday Savoy and my 2010 Flagstaff 829FKSS. In all that time, and we do a lot of camping, I had to replace the fiber gears once.

I have an 8 year old Barker that I removed from my old 2005 Rockwood, opened up and inspected, and will be installing on my new to me 2013 Heartland North Trail. The much newer Trailer Star jack from the North Trail will go on the Rockwood to be sold with it. The Barker has a huge advantage in performance and quality. The only thing I don't like about it is the white plastic housing which has yellowed in the sun. I would get a black one next time.

Mine quit working after 3 months. My dealer found a problem in the wiring. Seems to be okay now but thanks for the suggestions as I will probably replace it at some point anyway. It seemed to be terribly slow.
