electric jack

Hello. I have a 2016 Shasta Oasis 25rs with a hitch weight of 544 and 4,540 unloaded vehicle weight. I need to adapt an electric jack to this rig but I am unsure where to start. My dealer where I bought the rig quoted $261.00 for a jack and $65.00 for labor. I have looked at a few You Tube videos and it looks doable to someone with basic skills but I may get my neighbor to help. My question is what jack is recommended for this unit. Advise please. Thanks

We put a Bulldog 4000? on our 25rl and it worked great.

A higher rated jack will not have to work as hard and these are very easy to install. Basic skills works fine I would recommend a jack stand to support TT frame when switching rather than the stabilizer jacks. Wiring is simple and instructions usually included.

Or just have it connected to the tow vehicle to work on it, don't need chains, bars connector

We've installed a power tongue jack in the past and it's an easy mod. I agree that you should support the front of the trailer properly - NOT with the stabilizers.

On our new-to-us trailer we did a campground install of the power tongue jack, a Barker VIP 3000. For our 6570-GVWR TT it's more than enough, especially since we don't have to lift weight distribution bars.
