Yes, I found the prices all over the place. As far as I know, they're all the same unit. Amazon and e-Trailer were on the high end, while I got mine from https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Husky...-p/15-1459.htm for about $226 and free shipping.
82022 is the manufacturers part number.

The Husky Super Brute takes 1 minute to retract the jack from down to set the bars to up in travel mode. While you are waiting, that seems a long time. Not as long as waiting for the RV repair guy. Pat

It's the ball screw.

I've never had to use the override tools, taken anything apart, adjusted nothing and if it pooped this weekend, I'd get the same but maybe not the remote cause I like when Linda helps level it.

Good luck.

I switched to the Husky 5000 earlier this year and have been delighted. I agree with comments concerning ease of using remote fob inside the trailer. The three lights on the jack are much brighter making dark hookups easier.

The install was easy - took about an hour total. I sold my used Barker on eBay for $100 within three days. It worked but I had replace several slow blow fuses over the past three years and also a limit switch. The 3000 lb Barker was simply maxed out for my 23í FC.

Another plus not yet mentioned: the Husky does not use a fuse. It had a reset switch that is much more convenient.

The silver color is a great match for Airstream.

Good luck with your decision.

I do not believe the Barker is too light for the 23. It is the addition of a heavy TV to the mix that might put it under the bar. Our failure was a switch, not the gears or motor. The 5000 was just an easy call. Plenty of power, similar cost as the big Barker and silver does the slam dunk. Would never suggest less was a bad choice and a high five to folks who fix and extend the OEM life.

Be sure to anchor your disconnect brake switch. Close attention to torque on the clamping bolts can distract from important details. Don't let that happen.

Travel safe and with a smile. Pat

When I installed my Husky super brute, it worked one day...the next it was dead. I tried everything from running a ground wire to opening the case (bad idea). Finally, I spoke to Husky, and the customer service lady couldn't have been nicer. She agreed I had a defective unit, expedited a new one to me and e-mailed a pre-paid return label for the old one. The new unit is flawless.
Yes, I was bummed I had a problem, but Husky went above and beyond to fix the issue.

I changed from the stock Attwood not the Barker. Slower? Yes.
Annoying slower? Not as annoying as the Attwood that would go up but not down and left me with the trailer hitched and the truck's rear in the air so I could attach the bars.
It uses circulating balls rather than a worm gear, so yes, it might be 60 seconds between full up and full down. Does it bother me? No.

Best Power Jack & Why?
We have a 2015 27FB FC that I am having sporadic trouble with the Barker power jack. It will go up (lift the trailer) but sometimes will not go down.
Thinking about replacing it.
Quote:
PKI Your problem is likely the toggle switch. Start it up and quickly reverse the switch. That should keep you functional until you fix or replace the jack.

Options
Repair - parts are available - call Barker
Ditto PKI.

Our story: Barker 3500 jack would go up but would balk at going down. Finally called Barker Spring of 2018 and asked for parts dept. Got a very nice lady who patiently listened to my story:

"You have a bad switch."

"OK, can I buy one."

"What year did you say your Airstream was?"

"2009".

"Well, the jack is out of warranty, but if you give me your address I'll send you one."

And she did. Jack has worked perfectly ever since.

Replacement? Maybe Not

What would you recommend as a strong dependable replacement & why?

Thanks,

Glenn
I experienced exactly the same. I replaced my jack with a 5000 Husky but it probably wasn't necessary. I found the original problem was a bad positive wire connection. Check your connections thoroughly before replacing. Just my opinion. Good luck.

I donít know the best jack, but we bought a 2016 trailer with an Atwood jack. It failed on our first trip. It did not have a crank, just a part to put in a hole. The instructions recommended using a drill to turn the part. I tried that and it burned out the drill so fast I did not get a chance to disengage the trigger. I locked a vise grip on it and turned it that way. It took a long, long time. I saw there was a three year warranty, though it was a new jack. That was ecouraging, but I then found out Atwood had sold some of its business to LCI.

Since the dealer was very slow, I contacted LCI and asked for the cost of a drill since I had followed instructions and reminded them of the three year warranty. They agreed to replace the jack, refused to reimburse me for the drill and said they had decided arbitrarily the warranty was one year.

So, I suggest you avoid any LCI products. My experience was very negative.

So if this jack fails before three years, I will contact LCI and will be refused. I will threaten them with a law suit, but will also buy a Husky right away. From the recommendations, it looks good.

Gene,

I used my Husky 4500 yesterday and again today, easiest description about it:

IT'S BORING!

Up, Down, Up, Down. Ho hum.

Itís your switch. Seems I mess with mine about every 2 years. After 9 years, Iíve taken the original apart and cleaned (sanded contacts), replaced the switch, then cleaned the 2nd switch and then just got a new (3rd) switch last week.
