If you get the Jack, be sure and check it out well during your orientation. We didn't, and it has never worked right, (a problem with rotation). I emailed Escape but they didn't respond. I make do with the use of a screwdriver, and we don't usually use it much anyway. Someday I'll probably get around to opening it up and see if I can correct the problem - or maybe not.

Ours had trouble rotating as well. About the 7th or 8th day out, I shot a bit of silicone lubricant into the base on the roof, and it's worked well since. Don't know if that would help in your case. The rotator button/latching mechanism isn't the best of designs.
