Based on the size of your 2014 Coleman 262BH camper, I recommend going with a jack rated for 3,500 lbs. This is the most common size electric jack out there, so the good news is you have quite a few options. Keep in mind, the jack does not have to be rated for the weight of your trailer because it is only lifting the tongue weight of your trailer, but I will admit that jack weight capacities really don't make much sense for trailer tongue weights or gross vehicle weights.

It looks like your trailer might've come with an electric jack, so if all you are doing is replacing your existing electric jack, I recommend installing the etrailer.com Electric Jack, # EJ-3520-WBX. This jack is an excellent value for what you get. I put one of these on my enclosed trailer and it has worked great. I really like the drop leg feature because I don't have to sit and wait for the entire leg to extend before it starts lifting. I attached a video on this jack for you to check out.

If your trailer does not currently have an electric jack, then you will need to find a way to wire this jack to your trailer's onboard battery. If you don't want to go through that hassle, then I have another great option for you in the Buyers Products Electric Jack, # 3370093500. The nice thing about this jack is you can simply plug it into your tow vehicle's 7-way trailer socket whenever you want to use it. No wiring involved at all. It also has the drop leg feature and a 3,500 lbs capacity.
