The internal gears failed on the factory jack on my TT after three years. I replaced it with a Husky 4500. It took about one hour going very slowly to replace. I supported the frame with jack stands on both sides. The new jack is far stronger than the original one and makes connecting my Equalizer WDH much easier.

B, I just bought and installed the Husky HB4500 electric tongue jack, $200 plus tax; free shipping from Amazon. I would think the American made Barker is the best, but had to go with the best bargain and Husky gets good reviews.

Husky has the same 4500 but with remote, if you don't mind shelling out more hard earned dollars.

Our camper is only 7 months old, still under warranty. The repair man said to bring it in when it gets worse , which it has and I DEFINITELY don't won't it going out while traveling. I have read many revues that that is exactly what Liggets do
