I looked at several campers and this electric jack has the standard triangle pattern where the three bolts attach. The toggle switch (for up and down operation) will be towards the front and the light switch will be in the back. But to answer you question, yes, it seems to be the standard triangle pattern.

answer 9
Yes. The A or 3 hole triangle configuration was the same as on my camper, but I had to make my Jack's housing cavity wider on my camper. However, my camper's jack housing was a jerry-rig job, not to standard width like should be on your camper. I had to shave off about a 1/8 of metal all around the housing cavity in order for the jack to go into. Took about an hour.

answer 2
The jack comes wired with a 7-prong RV plug that plugs into the standard 7-prong RV recepticle that is found on most pickups and larger SUVs. If your recepticle is wired correctly, it should work fine; otherwise you'll have a little wiring to do (you'll need to get a heavy, fused "hot wire" to back of your truck). I was expecting to wire it when I ordered the jack, but was very pleased to see the plug already to go. What I like about it, is that you can use trailer and this jack with ANY truck or SUV with a 7-prong RV recepticle.

answer 2
No, the jack itself doesn't need to be level, the bubble is a convenience for you when using the jack to level your trailer without needing a separate level. How accurate it may be will be up to the exact build of your trailer, so you need to compare the indication of this level against your other level(s) before relying only on the jack's level.

A 20A breaker will allow 50A of current for 10 seconds. That would give any "power boost" required. The amp draw under load is 50 amp and no load draw is 15 amp.
