Electric trailer jack

Hi I am going to install a electric trailer jack I purchased from Harbor tools It is a 3,500 # item #67597. this is going on a 2003 rockwood TT model #82725-27'. Has anbody done this or are their any suggestions. It seem to be fairly straight forward to install. I will hook the electric directry to the battery with out a seppart switch and can un hook the connection if need be.

Yup. Pretty straightforward. I would definitely install an inline fuse if there isn't one included.

I don't see an amps rating, but would guess 15-20? If you can find the rating on the Jack, which there should be, if go by that and maybe one size bigger. So if the Jack says 7 amp, go with a 10. Lois like good reviews. One wire hookup should be plenty rest if it bolts right up.

Good luck!

Use a 30A. Under load that jack can draw 24A. I put in a 30A, auto-reset circuit breaker.

Really easy mod and worth every penny. If my new one hadn't come with one, I'd have immediately put one on. I bent the manual jack on my popup being stupid and replaced it with electric. I think it took a total of 30 min. Hooked up, three bolts off, three bolts on, ring connector to the battery, unhitch. I'm pretty sure it'll come with an inline fuse...I don't remember what size mine had.

Thanks to all for the great replys. some info this jack sells for $139.00 and harbor offers a 25% off coupon on their web. also if you spend $120.00 you can get an electric light temp reding tool. I'm always happy when I get a bargin and others think the product is great.

Thanks again we are heading for the covered bridge fes in In, this week end
