Electric Tongue Jacks

Hi there. I have a 31' TT and would like to get a good electric tongue jack with LED lights. Any suggestions?

The brands are pretty much the same thing. I would opt for at least a 3500 (so that you can raise the back of the truck to set the WD bar/chains), lighted, and with a manual override.

I'm using a Husky HSB4000 for my TT. Had a Husky on my previous TT and now on my current one.

Barker has worked well for me for a couple of years so far. I think it has a conventional bulb though.

6 yrs on Atwood, very happy

I had a barker for 3 yrs during the same time. The round foot fell off after 2.5 yrs (bolted from the bottom so I never knew the bolt was loose). Found parts diagram but the part was $25+ shipping.

Either way, pick one that has a pin from the side ( holding the foot on) so you can see that the foot is securely attached

I've had a Bulldog and now an Atwood. Bulldog was good and the Atwood had been good so far. Electric is the only way to go
