I want to replace my manual crank tongue jack with a electric one. I am looking at the 3500 pound models but i'm wondering if one brand is better than another? It would be for a 32qb TT.

Out of curiousity I did a Google search on "electric tongue jack reviews". if you do the same there will be enough "hits" for you to do some reading and form an opinion.

we will probably do the same and replace our crank jack eventually

I had an Atwood electric jack on a Sprinter TT. Worked fine . Never had any problems with it.

We had a Bulldog unit on our old TT. Installed easy and worked great. Bought it off eBay.

I have a Barker myself and am happy with it so far. I went with the Barker because at the dealer I bought my TT from they said they had carried almost all of the other brands in their store at one time or anotherand more of them came back then the Barkers ever did. So I went with the Barker.

My old Atwood 1500 just up and died at a campground after 3-years, hand cranking the tongue down was not all that fun. Stopped by my dealer on the way home and got a VIP 3500-lb. Been good ever since...

I don't remember the name of the one I bought for my son, but I do remember that it said MADE IN THE USA on the box and it has been very good nowfor 2 years.I think I found the store on E Bay.

I have heard good things about Bulldog. Comes in either white or black. 4,000 lb capacity, 5 year warranty, and an adjustable leg. I really liked the adjustable leg feature.
