I received my replacement Barker Superjack and I've installed it. Its an exact replacement as the original shipped from Barker via Vintage Trailer Supply. However when there is weight on the jack and lowering it there is a clunking noise as it engages and lowers the tongue. As soon as the weight is off the noise goes away.

I had to rotate the head on the shaft 90 deg to have it clear the propane tank but that is explained in the instructions as normal without having to retime the shaft.

My old jack didn't sound like this when retracting with weight.

Is this common or do I have a defective unit?

Spoke with Barker on Friday about the clunking noise. They suggested I pull the head off and put some 90w oil down the shaft. After taking the head off it exposes the end of the shaft but I put a little oil in the chamber but none if it seems to penetrate past the shaft. I then used the manual crank to raise and lower the trailer. When cranking it up it feels smooth. When I start cranking down it starts smooth but then hits a rough spot. I guess the screw inside the shaft is not machined correctly. I'll have to remove it and send it back for replacement. Why is everything I try to fix on my Airstream require so much effort. Nothing goes smooth with it. Bad Karma.
