Need new jack

I had an old style crank jack, and the handle just broke off, so i need to get a new jack. I am considering getting a electric lift jack, does anybody know of a decent electric jack? Its for a T-264SR. Its the 3 bolt triangle pattern. I dont know that bolt length between each nut.

I have a Barker 3500# jack and have no complaints. Their costumer service is great. I purchesed the larger one in case I went to a larger TT. It's now on it's 2nd TT

As far as I have seen, all the jacks use the same 3 bolt spacing so that should not be an issue. One thing to watch is the tube diameter that goes through the hole in the tongue. Choices are 2 inch and 2 1/4 inch.

I have a Barker too.

I should add, the electric jack is the best thing since sliced bread. SOOOOO much easier setting up on a hot day.

I have the Atwood 3500# ball screw drive. Once you convert, you will never go back.....

Mine has a trip clutch when it reaches end of stroke, both up and down, it ratchets like a slip clutch on a cordless drill. Have to watch out on some brands/models they only have a fuse to protect against end of stroke. Pop the fuse protects the jack, just carry many spares.

Mine can accept a manual crank in the event you have no battery

Mine has a light on it that helps hook up at night.

Mine has a one piece cover to help keep rain out of the top of the jack. Regardless I still put a 2 gallon plastic oil jug cut the top off to make a cover when stored outside. Out of sun and rain then.

Atwood and Barker are 2 very popular brands. Don't think you can go really wrong with either. Many have reported both going mega years and moving from camper to camper. I have moved mine twice.

Which ever one you get, get a high rated one. You jack up both the truck and the camper on a WD hitch setup. On your camper, I would say 2,500 # rating would be the smallest I would go. Consider the 3,000 or 3,500. Less strain and pain

Good luck

John
