Installing Electric Trailer Jack

I just purchased the Husky 5,000 lb electric trailer jack, probably overkill for my 2019 Sport 22, but the price was great. Looking at the instructions everything is straightforward. To attach to the battery do I need to drill a hole through the plastic battery cover?

No drilling required. Just feed the wire through the same place the battery cable feeds. I zip tiied mine to the cable.

If you can install the fuse in the line inside the battery case. This will give the max. protection should the jack feed wire ever short to the chassis.

If a fuse did not come with the jack get a 30 amp inline fuse and holder and use #12 wire.
