Hi . We are totally Newbies ...
We have a 2016 Bullet 251 RBS. We need to buy an electric jack and we are looking for recommendation .

Lots of choices out there. Lippert makes a “smart jack” that will remember the height you unhitched and tell you how much charge your battery has. What features are you looking for?

Looking for something easy to set up and use

Husky makes a basic tongue jack. They are basically all the same. Ground is the bolts holding it on the frame and the positive lead hooks to the battery.

This is the electric tongue jack I installed on my trailer (Springdale 240BHWE). Super easy to install and I haven’t had one single issue with it since it was installed 2 1/2 years ago.
Granted it was $179 when I bought it and $275 now.

OP the installation of one is easy once you block up the A frame. You will have to splice a wire and possibly install an inline fuse.

As far as what/which kind I'll give you my latest observations from my last one; The LCI units with the rubber grommet in the top can leak and destroy the control board under it (btdt). I replaced with a Stromberg Carlson 5k jack (trailer gvw 10k). Probably too much jack and the SC was slower than frozen molasses...but reliable. The one Jimmy240 posted above might be the ticket. I've heard/read good things about the Husky tongue jacks but have no personal experience. As in everything else, you get what you pay for. In the case of the jack, you don't want it failing on the morning of departure day (btdt) so get a good one first go round.

I installed a Barker 3500 lbs on my last trailer and it was on there for 7 years. I installed one on my current trailer when I bought it a year and a half ago to clear the tailgate. The LCI Jacks travel so slow compared to Barker.

I have had the same jack since my trailer was new. Works good!

I installed a Stomberg Carlson 3500 almost 3 years ago and is working great. Cam with an inline fuse and wired directly to the battery. The mounting bolts are the ground. Just make sure you have good bare metal on the base when installing and paint touch up when done.
