Can Powered A-Frame Jack Connect to Trailer Junction Box


Hi I recently bought the Lippert 3500 electric tongue jack. I have two questions. 1. Is it better to attach the wire to the battery or to the wire junction box which is attached to the trailer. 2. Also, I do not want to wrap the wire around the post and want to use an eyelet. This part was not included. What eyelet do I require? There are several different ones not sure which one to get. Thanks

With powered a-frame jacks like the Lippert # LC285318 you referenced your best option for powering it is the battery that's mounted on the trailer as that will have the most amperage available. If your junction box runs to the trailer battery then you could run it there for a cleaner install. Or if you wanted to run it to the battery directly you certainly could.

For a ring terminal for the junction box the part # 44-5356A would work well.
