Electric Jack

May be time for a new Jack. What do I need and what should I pay?

Hi nifty -- This month there's been a behind the scenes project to divide all threads into more specific categories. Take a look at the forums page under Exterior Restoration and you will find a section on Stabilizers & Tongue Jacks to browse. This can be done by the handy DIY-er.

Take note of the inline fuse -- can't say where it'll be in your current setup.

Take a peek at www.rvpartsoutlet.com

I found them to be a bit less that CW....

We are still doing the moves, populating the new subforum categories. So come back as older threads get added over the next few days.

I really wish I could say. If not, I would assume you could weld the old ones closed and drill out the new ones. I forgot what drill bit I used when I attached my dual cam HP system, but it went through like butter.

Ah, when our electric died, Camping World (granted, an expensive place) quoted several hundred for a new one. The manual jack ran $39, however. I decided that I could do a whole lot of manual jacking for that savings. No regrets since then.

I replaced my manual jack with a power jack from CW. If I recall it was in the $300 range. I love it and would pay it again.

The holes matched perfectly, I suspect the jacks are standard. Mine attached with the same threaded bolts into the a-frame.
