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. The electric trailer jack will also require installation or some know-how as far as wiring goes.

If the a-frame jack you have on your trailer failed I recommend getting a stronger jack for your 2013 Springdale trailer. I recommend the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack, part # BD500199. This has a 4,000-lb capacity and a total travel of 22-inches. You may also want to keep a cover on the jack when it is not being used if you do not already have one. I recommend a cover like part # UF38-944020. This weatherproof cover has a drawstring that helps hold it secure to the jack.

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.

Those who are interested in buying items like these have many different types available for their needs. For example, a trailer fender is necessary for protecting your RV from impact damage. They can fit where old ones were and fix any auto body concerns from which your vehicle suffered. More specific types include RV awnings that provide you with a comfortable place to sit during rainy weather.
Mr. Cover named his invention as a tribute to another inspiration, the Tom Swift science fiction novels he read as a child, one of which was “Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle.” He created an acronym from “Thomas Swift Electric Rifle,” adding the “A,” he explained to The Washington Post in 1976, “because we got tired of answering the phone ‘T.S.E.R.’ ”
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. 😳
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. You will connect the 12 volt circuit from the 7-Way trailer connector to the positive battery terminal. The jack will get its power from the trailer battery this way and not from the vehicle 7-Way. Having the wire to provide a maintenance charge will only maintain...
Mildew Prevention and Treatment No matter how carefully maintained, every RV cover can be a target for a case of mildew. What causes mildew and what are the most sensible ways to prevent and treat it? Mildew is a form of fungus present everywhere in the world. It is a primitive plant form that feeds on other plants and produces microscopic, seed-like spores that float freely. It takes dark, damp conditions to encourage their growth. Synthetic cover fabrics do not support the growth of mildew. Natural cover fabrics (those containing cotton) can support the growth of mildew, but such fabrics are treated with mildew inhibitors that will, with proper care, typically outlast the warranty period of the cover. However, dirt, pollen and other environmental particles that embed between the fbers of any cover fabric are gourmet fare for mildew and therefore, no RV cover fabric can prevent mildew from growing. Most remedies rely on sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) to remove mildew. A good, strong, all-around solution is ½ cup household bleach per gallon of water. Do not use liquid detergents in combination with bleaches. Scrub the affected surfaces with a soft brush, using rubber gloves and eye protection. Rinse thoroughly. For cleaning our covers, we highly recommend 303 Marine & Recreation Multi-Surface Cleaner which is safe and effective. Be aware that repeated cleanings can diminish the water repellency of the canvas. To restore water repellency to factory-new levels, we highly recommend 303 Marine & Recreation Fabric Guard. Remember that anything used to kill or remove mildew will wash or wear away over time, so be prepared for repeated treatments as part of your maintenance routine.

The etrailer.com Electric Jack w/ Footplate - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 25-1/8" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black, # EJ-3520-BBX, comes with a 1 year warranty on parts.

I purchased this cover for my BD500199 electric tongue jack. It fits great, looks good, and stays in place while driving... one bit of advice though: my level blistered, or shattered, I'm assuming from heat. the cover basically rests right on top of the level. I contacted etrailer and they sent me a new level. I have a foam insulator between the level and the cover now. 541015

Even after I read the many bad reviews I decided to give this a try. I wasn't going to just let my tongue jack get rusty and broken. I know alot of you said it leaked and wasn't water resistant so I decided to use my waterproofing spray I use on family shoes on this cover. After a few crazy wind/rain storms it is staying dry. Hubby and I are happy with it.
