My 2008 Classic 25fb originally came with a Barker Superjack. After accidentally damaging it when I accidentally left the hitch out of my Equalizer head and the trailer disconnect while slowly making a turn in my neighborhood, I purchased another Superjack. Out of the box it was making funny noises and sent it back to Barker for warranty. The one the came back seemed normal at first then started to develop a noises as it retracted. I should've sent it back during winter but figured I'd save the shipping costs for a different jack. So after a couple of seasons the noise seemed to be getting worse. Rather than take a chance on a repaired unit I decided to purchase the Atwood Premium 4000lb jack similar to what comes on the new Airstreams.
Easy to install as its a one wire connection like the Barker. One nice feature over the old design Barker is the emergency hand crank connection point is at the front of the housing and you don't have to remove the power head like the Superjack. The Atwood comes with a Robofoot, a folding extension that works well and tucks up behind and is no lower than the battery box. Now I don't have to worry about putting the removable foot like the Barker. There is also a small bubble level on the top of the cover.
I spliced the wire to the original wire and wrapped the excess around the tube. My Barker wire is in a loom that runs into the trailer and connects to the positive battery box. Somewhere in that loom is the fuse so now I've got two fuses on the circuit.
The Atwood is longer than the Barker but it clears the propane tank cover without touching it and I'm still able to lower the tail gate of my truck when connected.
While I had the jack off I removed the propane tanks and decides to clean off the rust spots with a wire wheel on my power drill and respray the A frame with matching paint purchased from Out of Doors Mart. The spray can makes it easy and is a perfect match. The paint set up fast and was able to cover the bare metal spots with several passing coats.
