Does someone have the ETI installed Electric Jack option where we can see how they set it up?

What part of the "set-up" do you want to see? Ours is factory ETI, here are pics without the propane cover in place. SInce the jack just bolts into the coupler ETI does not have any real way to change the installation. A lot of the discussion here is that when you have the front box, the propane tanks and an electric jack in such a small area the motor housing on the jack pushes the propane cover back slightly which then interferes with the box lid. I installed a slightly more streamlined propane tank cover which does not interfere.

I had the storage box and propane cover infront of the trailer. I followed Robert's mod and installed the Atwood Premier 4K electric jack yesterday. It fitted perfectly. The motor assembly is just slightly half an inch above the propane cover and does not touch anything. Thank you Robert for sharing your mod.

You're welcome Tonny. I think it's because the post is about 2" taller than most. Anyway, glad you're as happy with it as we are.

If anyone had told me yesterday that Ian (master craftsman of all things mod) would be jealous of one of my fledgling efforts, I'd have said they were crazy..

We should have him post pictures of "Buttercup". Under its own topic of course.

Do you feel that you have adequate ground clearance with the robofoot attachment ?

I'm not completely sure. The foot does hang down a bit from the hitch when retracted, and mine doesn't actually come up to 90 degrees- more like 80. I'm thinking a bungee strap to keep it tied up high when I'm underway. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably just retrofit it with a drop leg.

The other concern is when the campsite slopes upward in the front. Normally you'd just crank the tongue way down to achieve level. With the robofoot, you're slightly more limited in how far down it can go. I'll be trying it out in a few spots and see if it poses a problem or not.
