Very happy with these guys; had 2 alerts to a leaker tire in 2 years so I could pull off and get it fixed. I have the 507 sensors (user replaceable battery.)

Dunno what they say on them, but I didn't do the flow-thru either. I used the system originally on my Casita and moved it to my Escape; both of which have/had rubber valve stems. Very simple and easy to remove/replace the sensors if you need to add air.

Robert, do you remember whether you ordered the smaller or larger version of the RV Tailors cover? I'm getting the same jack that you bought and would like a similar fit. Thanks!

I don't remember Doug. I think I just told them what kind of Jack head I had and they sent me the right one.

Thanks Robert! I'll do the same. What a concept... actually communicating with a retailer. Never would have thought of it.

I also have extended stingers that work because we are only talking about 2-3" here. They also work but the best set up is the Jack-E-Up. In order to use a power jack one will need to add a quick disconnect in the wires, or go back to the extended stinger. Just remember to get a heavier capacity one due to the extra length.
Jim, We get our 2016 21 in a month and anticipate we will have a problem with the tailgate on our 02 Chevy Silverado 2500HD and the manual jack. Jack E-UP offers 2 different models, a universal model (side wind) and a top wind model. Do you know which one you used on Blackjack? I see the ETI 21 crank is mounted on the top but cranks side ways. Is that what is meant by a side crank? All my trailers crank at the top in a horizontal fashion.
I guess that means they are all top winds. I get confused about the simplest things.

I hope to order one (the correct one) and take it to Chilliwack so I won't have to put up with tailgate issues as we camp around Vancouver Is. for a week after picking up our 21.

Sidewind is the manual type on the Escape 21, about 5 minutes to install. You will need either 1/2 or 5/8 or 7/16 wrench, I no longer have mine in the yard to verify which size.

Sidewind it is then. I will have my handy Costco wrench set along with torque wrench for wheels and all the other things that may happen on break in. Thanks for the quick response.
