Yeah, Baby! Electric Atwood Jacks

I simply couldn't pass this one up, even if it meant pulling some money on the credit line.







The jacks are used, but very well kept. They came off a 1994 Weekender 12' Camper that looks like its brand new still. The owner has had it since it was new and its been inside of a heated shop anytime it wasn't being used. Hell, there isn't even a scratch in the paint on these.

We hooked them all up and ran them all with a lifting load to make certain they ran true, smooth and quiet .

The camper's owner decided to upgrade to a newer set of Atwoods but with the wireless remote this time vs the exterior buttons.

The jacks attached to the front without a problem, the back brackets I will need to cut a small notch in the top one of the two bolting points to allow the jack motor head to clear, but that'll take very little time with a sawzall to do.

Because these are older Atwoods and do not use the welded on brackets, no drilling was required to make them fit, as they use the same attaching method as the Reico Hydraulics that preceeded them.

And Yes, I deliberately put the controls on the back of the camper. It shortens the wiring runs to the battery and also makes it easier to operate the jacks, don't have to walk around the truck all the time.

Now, for the best part, the Price

Can you guess it?
