Electric Tongue Jack

With a Roo 19 and an Equalizer WDH, should I be looking at a Baker 3000 or 3500? I think the tongue weight is less than 650#.

As Youroo Sid, bigger s better. The Barker is a good jack no material which size, but the bigger Barker 3500 VIP will do a better job over the long haul.

The jack certainly looks nice and it is on my wishlist. After 7 days of camping and running the jack up and down to unload the WD hitch this will be a nice addition. However, I can't believe Baker charges $30 for the cover. I know that it is important to have one but, at 10% of the cost of the jack price what does it do?

I agree with the others. For the small cost difference, you are all set if you someday go larger. The Barker has performed flawlessly for three years, and I mounted it on our new 2014 Flagstaff 821IKBS before its first trip. You'll love it! One of the best add-on's I did.

I wouldn't pay it either, but since I just replaced my switch with the Barker, I decided to finally get a cover as I think all of these jacks are susceptible to water intrusion through the switches. I ordered this Ultra-Fab cover from Amazon for $13.
