Electric jacks .

my 29hsf xlr comes with the hand cranked tongue jack . not wanting to spend the $340 the dealer wants I've been searching and have found some nice units in the 125 to 199 . dollar range , all 3500 lbs , can anyone tell me the things i need to know ie type of mount on our 29's a-frame , I've seen some units with a round mounting plate and some with a triangle plate . still waiting for the dealer to send me the brand name of coupler being used , and a picture of it .
anyone that knows what style will be greatly appreciated, trying to get all the things needed for when i go pick up the unit , did just buy a wall mount shop vac for the garage with enough hose to clean the whole unit , towtater for my truck hitch to protect my new rig and soon to order the andersen hitch

I can't help with frame or mounting type, but with brand, Atwood is #1. You can get their best 4k model for under $200.
