Electric jack for pop up

I'm looking to replace the manual crank jack on my Fleetwood 228D pop up with an electric 12v jack. There are many options out there but I am wondering if anyone has already researched them. The tongue weight is only a couple hundred lbs. and I am looking for one that is fast. If anyone knows of such a model please share. Cost is also a consideration.

All you really need is the right drill bit and a nice drill.

That is an option and I do have one made up which serves the stabilizer jacks; however it produces a lot of torque and I need something TW can operate without breaking her wrist. Additionally the man. jack has some damage and needs replace anyway.

If you're replacing it, I installed one from Tractor Supply that has the crank handle oriented in the vertical direction. Much easier to use, but still manual.
