Husky 3000 tongue jack

I'm posting a tongue jack question in the towing subforum because my question pertains to use when connecting to the WDH. (Mod, feel free to move if appropriate.)

I just got my trailer back from warranty repair at CW in Lake City. Unrelated to the warranty problem they replaced my power tongue jack because they somehow broke it. I didn't know until I got there.

I forgot which brand the selling dealer used but seem to recall it being rated as "3500". I can't find the doco other than the sales receipt lists a power tongue jack. The new one is a Husky 3000.

My TV (Durango) has a rear GAWR of 3900#. While I don't plan to lift the rear axle off the ground, I don't want to accept a replacement jack that's inadequate for the task. When lifting the connected TV/trailer to attach the WDH bars, it seems to work fine.

Should I be concerned about endurance and discuss an alternative with CW? In general, the fit and finish looks better than the original, but that's cosmetic. I have no knowledge of the quality of the original but being dealer-installed on speculation, I had no input into that choice. It probably was cheap.

Thanks in advance.

I replaced the manual jack on my Palomino Puma Unleashed 30THSS with a Husky 3000. It will lift the trailer(tongue weight 1200) and the back of my 2008 Silverado 2500HD Duramax with ease.
