    I've got a 14' open that I hook and unhook every day, so I can store it in the garage overnight. I'd like to get an electric jack for it.. any recomendations?

    I googled and found Atwood

    Anybody know if this would work on a landscape trailer?

    Had one on my camper and can see no reason it would not work on any trailor. BTW get the metal plates that form a V so that you know when your lined up and press the button down and you will wonder how you ever got along with out one.That Fast , That Easy.

    I keep my jack against the wall up by the garage door. When I back in, I grab the jack and jack it up. If a need the jack for something else, then I just throw a jack stand or block under the tongue and lower it. This works great for me, but one of those electric jacks would be nice.

    are you really that lazy?

    my jack drops down and then cranks up past the ball in 7 turns then I drive away
