I have recently purchased a new pop-up with an unnamed power tongue jack. I'd like the ability to raise and lower if I lose power but unsure which handle would fit. The crank handle for pop-up is too wide to catch and turn the knob. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Actually, it looks like a mass-produced, white-box jack that anyone can brand and sell as their own. I saw it on Home Depot's website too. If that's true, you are probably NOT going to be able to find just a handle because there isn't a real brand and company to stand behind the brand. They're just offloading the ship from China, sticking a label on it and selling them. Let me be wrong about that, but who knows.

Maybe an adjustable wrench would work as a backup.

Yes I was thinking cheaper Chinese vibes... If a socket doesn't work I like the adjustable wrench idea. It has a lot of tongue weight 1000 plus (Fleetwood Scorpion s1) but as long as I could lift it up in an emergency somehow I'll be ok. Or else hacksaw and a bottlejack to get home...

Just plug the pup into the TV, leave it idling and run the regular jack function.

Until there's a problem with something in that connection that wasn't a problem before until you're broken down on the side of the road with a blown torque converter and a dying trailer battery. Sounds rather specific but these things happen. Absolutely needed a manual way to jack up the tongue jack.

That is very true even if I burn the battery out I can always hook it up to the truck to give it some power. I just always like having the what-ifs answered. Still pretty new to this whole world thanks again everyone for the suggestions!

I have one on my pup, actually saw the same at harbor freight, I have a hand crank with a socket end attached. Probably sold near/with the jack.

Wanted to follow up: Finally found in the toolbox, slipped at first when I tried turning it, but then started working perfectly. This little socket is not made as a daily user but if I'm in a tough situation and need to raise or lower my tongue jack it's nice to know I found something that will work for now. Thanks again everyone for the help!
