Landing jacks

I have a older Teton and am wanting to replace the electric landing jacks as we are doing other remodeling. It is a 40' and the tag says the pin weight is 6000.. I don't think that is really exact? Although does that mean I need 2 3000 lb jacks or 2 6000 lb jacks? And who has the best ones? Mine are older electric style independent switch . I also want to replace the rear ones that are screw manual style. What is the better without going broke on jacks?
Thanks, Jon

Venture is most common, and I would go with those. Just go with the jacks that are on it right now. They've worked this long, right?

If yours is like mine they are very slow. Have you considered the BigFoot system.

The current jacks came with it and they look a bit rigged if I must say in there. The right side is or has broken the barker motor and looks as if it is going to collapse.
The left side looks new with the old motor. Problem being I cannot see a load or model # on it to know if it is a correct application. But since I kinda got ripped on this camper and we have just gutted it and tore the siding off I was wondering what goes on the jacks? Do 2 3500lb make up the same as a pin weight of 6000lb?

Two 3500lb jacks will make 7000lbs lifting capacity, and will cover your pin weight.
What is the GVWR of the trailer?

16000 lbs and it calls for 4500 pin weight. Although fulltime living brings it or close to 20,000 total. My father has the same unit and we weighed it.
