Use your loaded hitch weight to determine what capacity jack you need.

GVWR is 11470

10 - 15% fully loaded would give you 1147 to 1721 tonge weight.

You will be fine with a 3500 to 5000 electric jack.

Lots to choose from:

This one is 4000 and has a few mentions on this site as a good upgrade replacement for the 3500 that are normally installed on most bumper pull trailers.

At least with a year off for COVID we had the opportunity to tuck some money away for our first tank of gas....

Hah,

That's quite a laugh, with 2 ambulance rides to hospital, ER bills, another ambulance ride to another hospital, 2 weeks in Covid/Intensive Care Unit, another ambulance ride to St. Louis, 2 weeks in the Teaching Hospital, drive up there to get her, and they postponed her release due to the Dr. inability to get necessary medications for, Drive home again(280 miles), released on Tuesday, drive up to get my Wife and parked in front of Hospital to get her, finally released at 2:00 PM, got a ticket from Hospital, for parking in the wrong lane, and finally getting on the Highway I-44 to go home, My Wife spied a "White Castle" sign. Just had to stop, she was famished, bought a crave case(30) and brought home 1/2 case. Finally made it home by 7:00 PM. The Dogs were very happy to see us and especially my Wife after 46 days in the Hospital.

Cassville? Next time I'm headed in your direction, I'll bring a Crave Case your way, John. Just say the word! (in STL, and we camp down I-44 all the time)

So sorry to hear about the fight with COVID, but thankful everyone came through it OK. We were extremely lucky (myself - 55, wife - 57, mother-in-law - 78) that none of us caught it. We did not do anything really to avoid it, either. Vaccinated as soon as was available, masked when we were required to by executive order and that was it. I still remember our "last day of freedom" when it all hit - we went to an Air Supply concert at Spirit Mountain Casino on March 7, 2020.
