Jack E-Up for 21'

When installing the Jack E-Up base plate to the A-frame on 21',
does it interfere with the propane cover? Thinking I might have to notch out a section of propane cover for fit? Since I'm not sure if tailgate (2007 Tundra) will hit manual jack handle, thinking I will bring along a Jack E-Up to install @ Lynden KOA just in case. I'm assuming the Heavy Duty Universal Jack-E-Up (Black) works OK? Thanks

I installed a Jack E-up on my E-21 that came off my C-17. I had to re-drill the holes in my Jack E-up ring to get the jack handle to line up pointing to the front. I think Jack E up makes rings with different bolt patterns. The Casita uses a top winder jack so there is no orientation issues. The Escape uses a side winder and jack handle orientation is important. I think the bolt holes have to be under the lips that catch the jack. Also you will have to cut your tank cover to get the ring to fit. I hope this info. helps.

Am thinking you will soon regret not getting an electric jack(have it pre wired anyway). You can get a stinger with 3" additional inches- or get the Pro Series 600# WDH and that will give you the clearance. Did the winding thing on our first Escape and it gets old.

Totally agree. We were still rocking our manual jack on our 17B when we met you way back when over by Death Valley, Ross. Up down up down to put WDH on and off got real old. Especially when you roll into a campsite as it’s getting dark, it’s 40*F and raining hard in your face.

Electric tongue jack was the first option selected on our 19 when we ordered it. Now up down up down is a breeze.

To answer your question, "Yes" bring a sharp knife as you will have to notch the bottom of the propane cover for the Jack E Up install. I have used it on my last 2 Escapes and plan to use it on the new 21. I did not drill any additional holes because I was not concerned with it being exactly 90 degrees. In fact I purchased another tongue jack and mounted it and put the factory jack in storage. when selling, I replaced the factory jack back to original. It works like a charm and makes for a smooth looking hookup, "jack free". While cutting your cover, do not forget to drill 2 holes and bungee the bottom to prevent freeway wind cover escaping.
