There are several places water can get into any given jack. Water should be able to drain out though. If the exit points which would be at the lowest point are clogged then the water would not be able to exit. You could use a jack cover like # UF38-944020 for future use. There is no telling how much damage is really done. If there is enough corrosion then something inside could be structurally compromised and fail when you have weight on the jack. I would not be comfortable offering...
We highly recommend getting yourself an electric trailer jack. Marshall has always had one on his Lance, and Kelly just recently got our #1 recommended Husky electric jack after almost three years living with a manual jack, and she couldn't be happier. For Kelly, it was one of those "Why didn't I do this a long time ago" reactions. Oh well, nothing like living in the present and not bitching a fit every time you have to hook up! No more worries about Kelly's back going out because of her jack. Her back is jacked, but her back won't go out due to a jack. Something like that.
Yes. A 3,000 pound electric jack will work just fine. Based on your trailer weighing 7,500 pounds loaded will equate to your tongue weight between 750-1125 pounds. Although you can choose a 2,500 pound (see link attached) electric jack, I would highly recommend the Stromberg Carlson # JET-3555 (white) or # JET-3755 (black) as they are rated at 3,500 pounds. I think you will really like the price point! I have also included an FAQ for you too.
Eliminate the physical exertion commonly associated with lifting and lowering a trailer when you use a Stromberg Carlson 3500 lb. Electric Tongue Jack. It does the heavy lifting for you, and has lots of other features as well. For example, the trailer tongue electric jack has equalizing bars that are easy to set, so you get better results, and two separate LED night lights that provide both added safety and additional illumination. The leg extends up to 23; and although it is heavy and durable, it's also surprisingly lightweight and easy to store.
