I have a 2004 Mirage 20 enclosed Auto transport trailer that came with a Fulton 2000# manual hand crank tounge jack. I would like to buy the Pro Series PS500198 electric tounge jack to replace the fulton unit but want to make sure it will fit the Mirage trailer I have. What do you think? Thanks

When choosing a replacement trailer jack, first you need to determine what style you have. If your original jack is an A-frame jack, then the Pro Series Powered A-Frame Jack, # PS500198, will mount with the same bolt pattern and the tube diameter will need at least a 2 inch diameter hole.
You will also need to make sure that the new jack offers enough clearance when retracted. The Pro Series jack measures 8-1/2 inches from the bottom of the inner leg to the mounting bracket when retracted. If that is enough clearance, then you need to consider if the jack offers enough lift. The Pro Series jack lower leg will extend 18 inches when fully retracted.
Also make sure to take a look at capacity. Since your original jack is rated as a 2,000 pound jack, the Pro Series Jack meets this requirement at 2,500 pounds.
The recommended foot plate for this jack is # PS1400700340. I have included a link to a video showing a typical powered jack installation that you can use as a guide when installing a powered jack.
