I would like to get an electric jack to instal it myself, but do not know which brand to buy to fit my trailer since i have a store box and two propane behind the jack. The tight space is a concern. Please advise . Thanks

When in doubt, call ETI, I have always found them very helpful. Mine has no box (pre-dates box) and one tank is in front of the other and my jack is an Atwood. I had ordered the electric jack option.

Depends on your strength and level of fitness. I don't have a need for a power jack now and probably not for quite a few years. When I do become old and wimpy, I may consider getting one then. They are readily available and easily installed.

Edit: I did not intend to imply that any of you with power jacks are old or wimpy. Was simply referring to my future status.

Speaking of power jacks, can anyone tell me the diameter of the stock jack tube? I've seen 2", 2.25" and 2 3/16" ones out there. I'm out of town on business or I'd just measure mine. Thanks for any info.

Hi: ice-breaker... Two things I like about the 5.0TA are the Power Landing Gear. The same two things I liked about the 5.0 too. My wife works the buttons and I work the hitch. This keeps us "Hitched"!!! No need for a WDH either.
As for "Old and wimpy"... you'll get there soon enough!!! Alf

I would say it is 2 1/4" but then the measuring is a little iffy and ours might not be yours. Maybe somebody can confirm.

I hear what you are saying about the 5.0TA. If it was available when I bought my 19', we may have made a different choice. Will have to rethink our situation when it comes time to make another vehicle purchase, maybe a pickup truck is in the works.

Yea, I can feel myself starting to pick up speed in the "sprint to the finish".

Thanks for all the replies -- this information supplied by experienced users is invaluable to newbies like us. We are still thinking about it but we will probably get the power jack.

Cheers,

Phil & Laura

Yup. The jack tube on our 17B is 2.25 inches outside diameter.
