Update to power tongue jack

I would like to add a power tongue jack to our 2010 sandstorm. It is 20 ft. I would like your input on what would be a good brand to buy. Thank You Gabie

I've had two Ultra-Fab 3500# tongue jacks, on two separate trailers, with no problems. I believe a 3000# jack would be fine for your trailer.

I've heard folks good comment about Barker, Atwood and Lippert. The Lippert jack is what's supplied with most FR travel trailers.

I had a Lippert jack on my 20-footer that failed after just a few months. I now have a Barker that I am hoping will be better, but I've only used it a few times. I like the features on it better. The power jack makes in MUCH easier to deal with the Equalizer hitch because we usually have to raise the tongue - and the back of the truck - a lot to get the bars on.
