    I kind of dig this. For the money I could pretty much get a cheap electric jack. But I kind of prefer mechanical devices for these things.

    The downside is it would turn into yet another project as I'd have to move the battery box back and move at least one propane line. Otherwise it'd hit the battery bax when I put it way down. It would still give me more range right now though.

    The way it uses a lock pin (I assume that's what the holes are for) it would not give you the same level (pardon the pun) of control as just a crank. Why the heavy-duty hardware?

    It gives you both. You can quickly slide it all the way up so the foot or wheel can't contact the ground in travel. Then quickly slide it down rather than cranking the whole way. You still have the normal hand crank range of 15". Overall you would have more range than any other jack.

    my ole coachmen came with a wheeled jack that could adjust up and down, a bolt/handle tightened/loosened to hold the jack in place. Great for light tongue, new electric on Hi-Lo (w/ a couple of 4x4 chunks) = smiley face.
