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.
