I have 4 manual crank corner jacks on my slide-in. I also have the drill adapter, but have heard that most cordless drills will burn out. Any better alternatives without buying new electric jacks?

Try an electric impact wrench...should be plenty of torque for your jacks.

I burned up my 18 volt dewalt.More my stupidity than the quality of the drill.I would use an impact wrench if I still owned the trailer.

I picked up a new $250, 18 volt Panasonic drill/driver with two batteries, 450 torque lbs, works like a charm, just hope it holds up. I guess that's what warranties are for.
