Power Tongue Jack on a 17B

I am considering installing a Power Jack on our 2017 17B -

Requesting feedback on which Make/Brand others have had good function & less trouble with.

We have Fastway E2 WDH & Sway Bars installed which weighs around 50 lbs & would prefer a lighter Power Jack in the interest of less Tongue weight on our Highlander.

We also have extra insulation on our Trailer if that makes any difference, how was the wiring done to the Batteries in the rear for a 17B ?

Thanks in advance

Lots of us have installed the Atwood 81068 . It is a direct replacement into the tongue of the Escape (3 bolt pattern), is self grounding, and installs with one wire connection to the ‘Black’ colored screw on your tongue mounted electrical box. Easy Peasy and weighs only 5 lbs.. several threads on the install. Search under Tongue Jack Installation:

This is a good discussion on the Installation. I believe all newer Escapes have the small electrical box mounted under the frame, driver side, about 3 ‘ back from the hitch:
