Yeah, my Lippert jack is slowest I have ever seen. Had a Barker we liked at about the same price point, I think.

I bought the Husky HB 4500 a few months ago and really like it. It has a very handy remote control that saves time and steps hitching and leveling. 5 stars on Amazon for $200.

If it were me Id call etrailer.com (number is on their website).

Talk to Tech Support and tell them the info re TT, ask their advice.

They not only sell items they know what comes back with problems and which doesn't.

IMHO their knowledge base would be invaluable to you in making a selection. Ive used this method before when looking for other items and they have saved me from a serious mistake.

Here's a recent poll https://www.forestriverforums.com/fo...uy-193858.html so that you can see what other members like.

I recently bought a Husky 4500 for my 7,500 lb TT. It's a lot quieter and faster than the original Lippert. It also has an upper limit switch which the Lippert did not.
