Upgrade tongue jack

We have a 2014 Work & Play 25 ULA.... the front tongue jack broke!!
Yes its a manual jack... and do a lot of boondocking and WANT a manual jack.

We have it replaced with a BAL 2000k jack and that too seems to be ready to break!! We are giving real consideration to installing a 10k direct weld tongue jack.

Pro Series Square Jack - Drop Leg w/ Spring Return - Sidewind - 12-1/2" Lift - 10,000 lbs Pro Series Trailer Jack PS1400950376

Has anyone out there replaced there jack on there WP?

Any thoughts or ideas? We really do not want an electric jack.leveling jacks... suggestions?
Also looking into heavier duty

Nope, I am on my second #4000 electric tongue jack... Assumming you don't want to go electric because your afraid your battery will go dead and you won't be able to raise or lower the trailer? They do have a non electric overide for those situations.....

I might suggest if you boondock alot that you add some addtional batteries. I added four deep cycle batteries to my rig..

My electric jack will operate with no battery and just plugged in to the pickup through the trailer plug.
