Powering Manual Leveling Jacks

I have added the leveling jacks to our motorhome and am now contemplating powering them with the electrical power steering motors being used on newer GMC cars.

So far all I know is that these things run on 12 to 18 volts and seam to be good for the torque required but that part is pure conjecture on my part. Is there anyone in 1RV2 land that has specs on these motors and know if they really are powerful enough for my planned end use.
