Electric trailer Jack

I'm looking into installing an electric trailer jack on my 23ft bambi sport. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on which one to buy and if there is any clearance issues with the propane tank cover being so close to the jack.

I bought one on sale from princess auto for 99$....https://www.princessauto.com/en/deta...ck/A-p8689960e


Harbor freight ahs the same jack under a different name in the states. It fit on my sport 22fb. There's many more expensive jacks out there but so far it's doing what it needs to do.

Your bio says 22, your post says 23, assuming that you have a 22 FB Sport, yes I have experience installing a power tongue jack on a '2017 22FB Sport.

Used a Husky brand, mounting holes lined up perfectly, no problems with the propane cover and the lift gate on my TV cleared. All the mounting hardware came with it including wiring to the battery and inline fuse. Don't recall the cost but think it was $500-$600. Capacity was between 3000 and 4000 LBS.

No matter which brand you buy, make sure it has a limit switch both up and down.

Short answer to your question is yes that it can be done and your arms/back will thank you.

pics of trailer Jack

Thanks to those who have responded and anyone else who does. I have another request, that is if you can include a picture of your electric jack installed on your AS.

Thanks in advance

First, shop around, search here for recommendations.
I just bought a Husky Super Brute 5000 for my 26U.
Do I need 5000#? Probably not, but if you have a trunion bar hitch, then putting the bars on the "L" pads is much easier if you lift the tongue AND truck together after hitching. How much is that? Don't know, but I do know that my stock Attwood 4000 got stuck in the "UP" position and left me scratching my head.
Besides the Husky super brute came with a remote so you can level fore and aft while standing by the door.
It's the Mercedes of electric jacks, from what I read, and it was $234 from RV Upgrades and they shipped it in two days!

All jacks seem to have the universal three holes on 3" centers for the 3/8 x 16 bolts. It requires one connection to the battery+.

I haven't installed it yet, but it will be soon.

Went back and checked, cost was less than $300 all in for the Husky with 3000 LB lift capacity. Had a light, limit switch up and down, a cord storage attachment pocket and adjustable foot pad.

Have attempted to add a photo, hope it works.

EDIT:
Dialogue box said picture was attached, but obviously it was not. Not a problem, hundreds of videos on YouTube to look at including installation instructions.

Finally Picked One Up

Thanks again for everyone's posts. I finally purchased an electric jack from Northern Tools. They had the Ultra Tow 3500 lbs one on sale for $124. I couldn't pass it up for that price. Here is a link to a video I posted of the one I choose if anyone else is interested in picking one of these up.
