Good info on the air bags. This video cleared things up for me. Looks like the original jack is reused and should be stored off the tow hitch when not in use so it won't rattle or fall off. Put it in the TV or the front storage box.

$81.49 USD on Amazon


$42.99 USD plus shipping from Camping World

I guess they are the same units.
