Recommended Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack


I need to replace the trailer jack on my travel trailer. Im concerned through that the mounting hole spacing of my current jack is not standard and thus will not work with a new jack. Imagine the mounting hole locations as a triangle with the pointy end pointing to the tow vehicle and the flat side of the triangle perpendicular to the tow vehicle. The hole spacing from the pointy end of the triangle to the two back holes is 3.0. However the spacing between the two rear holes is 3 1/8. I cant rotate my existing jack because the mounting holes wont align correctly due to the longer spacing between the rear two holes. Do you have a suggestion of an electric jack that would align to my mounting holes?

Thank you for your photo showing your A-frame trailer's jack mount. This does appear to be an industry-standard set-up.

The Lippert # LC285318 is a powered A-frame jack has 2 toggle switches for operation. Jack has a retracted height of 10-3/4", an extended height of 28-3/4", and 18" of travel. Extends 6" in 41 seconds with 1,000 lbs of tongue weight and work well for applications where the tongue weight is under 1000 pounds.

If you need a more highly rated jack just email me your trailer information and required tougue weights.
