I haven't been on the forum in a couple months and just reading this thread reminded me why.

Reminding folks to use the search area is a good idea. Faster access to info that has been discussed here repeatedly. To inform someone of the provided tools available......that's a good thing.


I have whatever brand FR put on there in 2010.......it's white and kinda loud !
..........and the led light has dimmed way down !

Just measured the hole in the frame after removing the manual jack temporarily. It's 2 1/4" this is my 2009 Forest River Salem 30QBSS. I'm gonna order my Barker unit armed with this info.

I plan to remove mine tomorrow to measure diameter and will report back.
I'll watch this as I am thinking of changing mine to electric and will probably be the same as yours.

By the way, where is the search feature on the iPhone mobile app? Not trying to start crap... Otherwise I just would have asked where to dump my gray tank.

To quote Sam Worthington and Jonah Hill in the "Call of Duty" commercials-- "go get 'em, Newb!"

That was awesome, JeffK gets to stay.

I did my research a couple of years ago and the two names that kept popping up were Barker and Atwood. After finding out Barker makes the units used on Airstreams and seeing my buddies Airstream jack be trouble free since the late 80s, I went with the Barker VIP 3500 18". They make a 24" also, but the Windjammer has a lower mounted hitch head, and it was a bit cheaper.

Where is the 18" measured between so I will know what mine needs?
