Recommendations on a electric tongue jack?


I have a 2020 Bambi 22FB and in need of a electric tongue jack....any recommendations? The space looks pretty tight with propane tank cover...only about 2.5 inches. Most of the jacks I am looking at are pretty big at the top.

I installed the Husky 82084 Super Brute Electric Jack - 4000 lb. Capacity. A bit of an overkill, but works great.

Get the Husky 5000 with the remote control, level side to side while parking and front to rear with a level on the fridge from inside. Wife does this while making my cocktail as I hook up power and water.🥃

I went with the Husky 5000 also.
At first I thought the remote was a gimmick, but as I use it to level from inside it's valuable.
I also turned mine sideways to clear the tailgate. (barely)

Here's a tip for the Husky.
At the top there's a rubber plug for the emergency crank.
Except the crank hits the propane cover.
So, go to Harbor Freight and buy a cheap 1/2 drive ratchet, a long extension and a deep 7/16" socket. (I say deep so in the unlikely event it falls into the head, you can still grip it.)
Also be aware that the clutch release (to use the crank) is on the street side lower. It matters if you turn the head sideways.
