Like Ed said,  buy one large enough for your heaviest tongue weight. Home-made tongue weight scale

I bought mine from Amazon and installed it myself. They have a wide range in prices so shop carefully. As long as you have some way to prop up the trailer tongue while you remove the old one, it is a very simple job to install one. I wouldn't but the least expensive but neither would I get the most expensive. One nice feature to have with one is a way to crank it up manually in the event that it were to fail.

Over the years I've seen several of those units fail, often its the switch that burns out from excess current or heat. If I were to buy one Id get one the next size HEAVIER WEIGHT RATED and use the next size bigger wire then called for. Good heavy oversized wiring and a good well charged battery that powers them may extend their life.

Pretty much what everyone else said but reitterating  I would not get one with out a back up crank system that is on the jack at all times. I bought one at harbor freight and my only gripe is the crank is separate so I have to store it, remember where I store it and I am not crazy about the way it works (crank part) That being said I have only had to use the the crank twice but not because the jack itself failed. As long as I had power the jack always worked.

Mine didn't come with a crank but there is a removable plug that allows you to use a socket wrench on it if needed. I got mine from Amazon.
