Thanks!

It's a Husky HB3000. My parents recently bought a Lance slide-in camper, and she had 25% off of her next store purchase, and that's what was in stock at the time. Haven't read any reviews on it, but so far so good.

Force it looks like the back of the jack is smooshing your LP cover. The part that holds the cable can be removed, curing the crease in the cover.

Correction...that part was held on with a few screws, came off in 2 mins, no sawing required. I'm a little disappointed lol.

LOL. I thought I'd have to cut it off as well. Looked at the manual and saw it was just screwed on. No more dent in LP cover!

I would say that reading all these posts about the mods to the 23SS are making me miss my 2008 a bit. But, since we went to the dark side and went full containment, I'm working on some mods on the new Flagstaff.

Force, you are one ambitious dude! Kudos for all the mods.

Here are some reviews:
The biggest complaint seems to be that if you run the jack all the way to max or min it can shear the pin that holds the shaft to the motor mechanism.

The new versions have a SmartStop feature.
SmartStop used to be a feature only on the 4500model but the HB3000 I bought last week says "now with SmartStop on the box.

Thanks for the follow up Barney. I don't recall seeing SmartStop on the box so I'll have to be careful how far I extend or retract.

As it happens, I use a 6"x6"x15" block under the foot, and manually raise the foot up/down a few holes on the shaft, to lesson the need for full extension or retraction.

So far I'm very happy with it, and it has had no problems lifting the truck & tongue up to attach the WDH bars. My tongue weight is a bit over 600lbs.

Hey Force,

It looks like you and I are in the same weight range, the last time I weight mine my tongue was at 590lbs.

I didn't realize the " Connector Plug Storage Bracket was going to have clearance problems.
I checked for height clearance under the front bunk but not for the "Bracket".

My solution:
