The former, obviously, and through personal experience, is much harder to use than the latter. However, the primary benefit of the manual jack is that it COULD be less prone to breaking since it is a simpler device. The electric trailer jack could fail electrically or mechanically.

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.
Then inside, we're going to have a nice soft material. Even if the wind's blowing this around a little bit or something like that we're not going to have to worry about any abrasion on our jack. The way it works is the simple drawstring here is going to pull down and secure around the outer tube of our jack. We'll just slide it over the top just like this, then cinch to close. This is going to protect not only the jack motor body itself but also our switches and out light from any kind of discoloration from UV fading. Also, it's going to protect it from the rain, the snow, dirt, debris.
OK, so you have your trailer tongue weight (or a rough idea what it is). What next? If you have a weight distribution hitch that uses spring arms, it's very likely that you will need to raise both the front of the trailer and the rear of your tow vehicle in order to be able to get the spring arms onto their brackets. So not only is the tongue jack lifting the weight of the front of your trailer, it is also picking up the rear of your tow vehicle. 😳
