I use a Jack-E-Up and remove the jack after hook-up. That prevents interference with the rear mounted spare tire on the van and allows me to open the rear van doors while hooked.

Just got back in town this evening. While I was away I ordered a Husky 4500lb with remote which was delivered this afternoon. Planning to install tomorrow or the next day and will report back.

Great, as I said, I don't think you'll regret it! Do you have a back up camera? Using it with the remote takes a bit of practice, but its pretty cool to be able to do it.

Install was very easy too!

I do have a back up camera. That was one of the first mods I made to my truck (along with the Pioneer double DIN head unit).

Jack install took about 20 minutes today, works perfectly. Hardest part was removing the old manual cranker, and that was only three bolts. I read and reread the specs for the bolts: 15-20 ft. lbs. seems really light but I'm following the book and that's to where they're torqued...

Took the awning off today as well. New fabric goes on tomorrow, just have to get some 3/16" pop rivets for the motor and I'll be set.

I'm a little late to your post. I bought a Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame -
18" Lift - 4,500 lbs for my 2012 210UDS. Simple remove & replace. Easy electrical connection. Very pleased! I think you'll like yours.

I got the Husky Brute with remote too. Used it this past w/e and am pleased. It’s a bit overkill but, better than not enough. More water problems developed on this trip, flush valve started leaking, but I had already installed a shut off valve on the supply line. Got a new one at CW to replace. The shower also started leaking. I will have to locate that this week. Seems kinda like the Dutch boy sticking his finger in the dam!

Since having our trailer, we have had to replace our powered A-frame jack twice now... due to water destroying seizing them. So now we use an old dishwasher detergent jug cut to slide over the top & an old canvas lawn chair cover to pretty it up & keep it dry. Just a suggestion though...

When you say "flush valve" are you talking about the toilet one. Just an observation but I had to replace my toilet valve when my dad was trying to help me and started blowing out my water system for winter with 100 psi air before I was ready. It should always be regulated to around 40 psi, instead It cost me money but he was just trying to help. May not be the source of your water problems but food for thought for others. Luckily I have not had any other stressed parts or connections in the water system and I have been watching for them. Silverado

Yes, the toilet flush valve. I learned years ago that a shut off valve should be in line behind the toilet to minimize water damage when the inevitable happens. I too try to keep the water pressure to 40psi or less. The shower leak was merely old caulk that had cracked and pulled back. Heading out next week for 6 days of camping on Lake Hartwell. Another chance to check out my systems. Hope you can get before long.
