Electric tongue jack

Does anybody use one on their Rockwood? We are considering one for our 2605. What brand and weight capacity do you use if you do?

I don't on my 26 RKS but let me know what you end up getting and how well you like it. I might do the same thing.

revetch,

I installed the Ultra-Fab 3500 on my Rockwood 8315SS.

It's a very easy install, about 20 minutes or so.
3500 Lbs. of lifting power.

revetch,

I also have an Ultra-Fab 3500 - on my 827FLS. Some of the best money I ever spent. Go for it!

Wouldn't be without it. I don't remember the name but it's a 3500 pound lift. Sure saves a lot of cranking. The 3500lb lift is the only one designed to lift the tt and the tv back end. Makes things faster and a lot easier

3500 lb can't remember the brand. Will not ever have a TT again without one.

My smaller 2502 got an Ultra Fab 3000 installed (#15-0146). Has dual lights to assist at night.

It has no problem lifting the back end of my tow vehicle amost off the ground so the bars on the Equalizer hitch can simply swing into place.

$168 online from what I've found. I had the dealer install it, charged $213.99. If figured with shipping, I'd be close to that anyway. Worth every penny!

3000 lb jack on Rockwood 8318SS

This spring I installed a 3000 lb jack on my 8318SS. Extremely easy to install, just be sure to scrape a little bit of paint between mating surfaces and use the grounding washer to ensure a good ground! The 3000 seems plenty strong. It will lift the camper and rear of my tow vehicle without overloading the motor or sounding like it is struggling. My only complaint is that it does not have as long of a "reach" as the factory hand crank jack. Not the end of the world though, just bring along some extra wood or lynx levelers to make up the difference.

To all with the 3500 lb jacks installed, do you know if they are a 2" or 2-1/4" diameter tube?
(was looking at a barker, and I think the 3500# model is a 2-1/4" tube)

Spent some time measuring my tongue, and it looks like a 2-1/4" will be a pretty tight fit.
