Electric trailer jack

Hey guys,
My manual jack needs replacing. Id like to go with an electric one.
Any good recommendations?
I have a Spree LX. It comes in around 5300 lbs.
Also, I see most of these just ground through the chassis. If I hook it up directly to the battery do these units have a shutoff to avoid draining the battery on extended periods away from the trailer?

If there's no light or anything like that, there shouldn't be any power draw when you're not using the jack. They are very simple 12 volt motors. I don't think there's any reason to worry about draining the battery. If you want, you can put in a disconnect or easily removable fuse in the line just to be safe.

I don't have a specific jack to recommend. I assume they are all basically the same thing, so get a cheap one.
