After what seemed like a hundred cranks, your trailer is lifted enough to attach the hitch to your truck, but your arm feels ready to fall off. An electric trailer jack can save your arm by lifting your trailer hitch with just the touch of a button. Most electric jacks use 12V power, so you can hook them up to a battery while you are out on the go and not worry about finding an outlet. Most models also include a manual jack handle as well so you can still lift the trailer, even if your battery runs out of power. The Barker electric trailer jack is a commonly found option, and the VIP 3500 can handle most campers and travel trailers, as it is rated to lift up to 3,500 lbs. This model lifts trailers up to 18 inches, so you can easily attach your trailer to your truck or SUV. There are many electric trailer jack options available with many lift capabilities, and with the large inventory available on eBay, you can lift your trailer with the touch of a button in no time.
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.

This fits nicely on our travel trailer power jack. We purchased it to stop the sun fading the black jack. Although we purchased and started using this a couple months ago, after days of heavy rain here recently we thought it would be prudent to check under it today. Yes, it is not waterproof BUT it was only damp under there and all the electronics still worked so we were happy. Let's face it, the manufacturers make the jacks to be weatherproof so a bit of water/damp should not hurt them. I do like another reviewer's idea of putting a plastic bag on first and then putting this cover on top though. A great idea!
