To all who commented, positively or negatively, to my earlier reply on page one, (do a search because topic has been covered recently", thanks for the comments, good and otherwise. As a moderator, I felt it was my job to help new members, and remind old ones, that we have available a "search" function. After being here a few years, and trying to help when I could, I have found that many of the same questions are asked every week or so. I can not assume that everyone that ask a question is computer literate, (forgive, no offense to anyone), or even knows how to use this forum, or any other forum. There is a learning curve for all, me included, and I have been on computers since before windows ever came around. Maybe that was a harsh comment to some, but really I was trying to educate us all, that there is a way to a faster answer sometimes. Want some fun homework? Search on winterize, and see how many post you get, or water heater bypass. I do realize disk space for storing all this seems cheap, but running this website is not, and I was here when there were no sponsors, and it was all volunteer. Much cleaner site, no sponsor adds, and all was good, but space and time, and cost, to control it became a problem. Now there are sponsors, and the bigger it gets, the more time, the more space, and the more cost.
Now back to our regularly scheduled post. I bought a Husky 3500 pound off an Ebay dealer, actually a real dealer that ran them on Ebay. Less that $200 shipped to the door. It's a new design, using ball bearings, not many reviews when I bought it, but I took a chance. Very quite, as electric jacks go. Speed about the same as others. Comes with an adjustable foot, height wise, and after one season of use, love it. It will pick up a 1000 pound tongue weight camper, and the Ford F150 hooked to it, and never really slow down. It has a brake on it, with a release handle, and manual crank, two options that are must have in my opinion. After sitting for 3 months, I checked today, and th jack has not drifted downward. Some will.
