Lippert power tounge jacks (SOLVED)

Has Anybody had any trouble with their lippert power tongue jack? I have a 2012 Gray Wolf 26 RL that I have had for less than a year. This past week end the jack stripped out when we got to our destination and I had to use the jack in my truck to get my tt unhooked. This will be the second time since I bought the camper this has happened. The first time was during my demo when I bought the camper. It should be under warranty, but I don't think I want another lippert jack on my camper. Any suggestions or recommendations for a replacement. Thanks.

I bought a Husky Brute on the advice of another member here who works for an RV dealer (cant remember his name maybe windjammer?) Anyway it's a ball bearing design with a built in brake with LED lights and 7 pin plug holder ,works great so far and price was very reasonable.

My LCI jack died last summer after 3 or 4 months of camping. My dealer said the gears were chewed up. We replaced under warranty with a Barker 3500 VIP. I paid up a little to make up the difference in cost and it's been well worth it. More power and quieter.

Our LCI jack lasted 6 months, dealer replaced with an Addco under warranty.

Our Lippert (Space Man Face) looking failed while we were on long trip.We didnt have time to go thru the Warr.hoops,so we put on a (Barker VIP). The old Lippert was white,when we at the Factory in Middlebury they had a (Pile) of broken black ones. If you are going to be at the (Tadpole Rally) we can compare jack tales! Youroo!!

I have the Barker VIP 3500 and love it. Been using it on my past trailer for 3 years and pulled it off and will be putting in on my new trailer in two weeks when I receive it.

Here is where I bought it. Great service & fast shipping.

Barker VIP Power Electric Tongue Jack 3500lb. - $199.99

I spoke with the dealer today and was told it is up to forest river what they will do. I did specify that I wanted a barker 3500 VIP or a bulldog. We'll see what happens in the next few days.
