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.
