Knowing what I think I know, I would say Atwood and Rieco Titan.

I had Happijacs on my old Adventurer & Reico's on my new SnowRiver. I like the Reicos a lot more.

Some interesting recommendations here; thanks.

I have had problems with my happijac although I thought I solved them by lubricating them (the drilling hole method discussed on this thread). The jacs worked a lot better after lubrication however after contacting happijac company telling them what I had done, a company rep said I did the wrong thing by lubricating the main shaft area. The tech said happijac would inspect them etc for a minimal charge. However, shipping costs from FL to Salt Lake (?) could be a bit pricy.

Thus, I am considering other alternatives such as the Rieco Titan which come recommended in this thread.

I went to the titan site...it has some conversion kits but conversion from happijac is not mentioned.

Has anyone replaced jappijac with the Rieco Titan? I will contact Rieco Titan but I thought I would ask here first. I have a 2000 bigfoot 3000...the electric jacs run via a handheld remote whose wire plugs into female plug...looks like cat 5 type female.

Paul, re your Rieco jacs, did the company provide you with instructions on maintenance, oil, grease etc? Your new camper looks great!

Thanks, HEMI

I contaced Reico; a good message came right back from Bob at Reico. He said conversion to Reico jacks on a Bigfoot camper may not be that easy...they don't carry a conversion kit.

Bob said that one would have to build mounting brackets.

So, I guess I will struggle a while longer with the Happipjac system. While on the road I will keep my eyes open for units with Reico jacks to get more recommendations from owners and to see if I could either modify my current brackets to adapt the Reico jacs or see a way to fabricate a new set brackets.
