Is an Ultra 3002 enough?

A long heavy Christmas wrapped box under our C-Tree was/is a new Ultra 3002 for our Trade Wind. Before I break open the box may I ask is this tongue jack enough for our TradeWind? The Trade Wind is 4100 lbs (dry) with 410 lbs tongue weight. Since the jack is also lifting the rear of our 4400 lb.TV to mount the WDH I want to be sure the 3002 is adequate. Thank you for your input.
Neil.

Hi, Neil. I think that jack will work just fine with your set up. My trailer is heavier than yours, My tow vehicle is heavier than yours, and my tongue jack is rated 500 lbs more than yours and, not on purpose, but I did lift the rear wheels of my Navigator completely off the ground once.

Thanks, Bob. I have done a little more research on the Ultra 3002 and believe it will be ok for me. I don't want over kill....or over expense. Some of the negative comments in reviews are of the plastic switch failing. For the money I can replace the switch with a tougher one. Actually what I will do is get a new switch and carry it with me.......then the original switch will be trouble free.
