Auto/Electric rear stabalizers

Getting to old to continue to use the hand crank to lower/raise rear jacks. I sometimes use my battery drill but still have to hand crank after you start putting a load on jacks. Does anyone sell elect/auto rear jacks?
Was also thinking of installing an electric trailer jack on each rear corner of trailer to use instead of the screw scissor jacks.

All input will be appreciated

A couple of folks have this and have been happy with it.

I have the precursor to this product which is extremely effective but is manual and kind of a pain to install, so often times I don't bother with it.

Noisy but fast. I used my 18 volt DeWalt for maybe 10 years and never once worried about the impact noise. Only takes a minute or two and much faster and stronger than a cordless drill.

My son has a Lippert electric stabilizer on the back of his fifth wheel. below is a link to his unit. You may need to have it welded to your frame and you need a 12V constant power line as well
