Tongue jack replacement

My 78 safari 23' had an electric tongue jack. It broke. I took it apart to see who made it but couldn't find a manufacturers name. What should I replace it with?

We recently purchased a Barker. Very satisfied.

I bought a manual jack with a side crank. It fit perfectly in the triangle, and I don't miss the electric at all.

Ditto on the Barker. They have been making them for a long time.

thanks for responding you guys. I couldn't decide so I went to harbor frieght. I figure when this one wears out I'll consider it all again. I do think the manual crank might be the way I go. This little trailer isn't that much of a chore.
