Tongue Jack...

The tongue jack on my wife's pop-up broke and I can't seem to find a replacement. I even stopped @ two RV centers and they told me they haven't seen one in a while. I have the type that mounts on the A frame of the tongue on the inside. It has a clamp that I losing or tightening after adjusting the jack up and down before I crank the handle. The wheel is shot and the handle on the jack itself snapped off. Any idea where I can get a replacement? I really don't want to add an aftermarket.

The pop up is a starcraft. I believe 96...

Harbor Freight, or Tractor Supply
Search results for: 'trailer jack'

Shows several options.

The link is for Harbor Freight's catalog.

Contact Starcraft. They can provide parts for even the oldest campers they ever made. Their customer service is great. No need to cobble something together from HF.

Actually, you can probably buy just the wheel and the handle.

Thanks, I found another site where someone had the same issue trying to find this jack. They came accross the part number and called Starcraft, which is now Jayco. The part number has of course changed but called the nearest Starcraft/Jayco dealer as they will not sell direct and should have it by the end of the week...

My other idea would have been to contact a construction trailer dealership. That was where he bought one for our 99' PUP. It was actually fairly cheap.....

Just in case the one from the RV dealer falls thru.
