Selecting an electric jack for your toy hauler or camper can be overwhelming. Based on your 2100 lb. tongue weight, I personally recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack part # HT87248.

While you could possibly run the power from the 7-Way to the jack, it is not ideal and you could overload the circuit. I recommend adding a battery to the trailer and providing a maintenance charge to the battery from the 7-Way.
