installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we're going to review part number JET-3500. This is the Stromberg Carlson electric A-frame tongue jack. This jack has a thirty five hundred pound weight capacity, and an eighteen inch lift on it. This jack will allow you to raise and lower your trailer with an effortless motion. It does have a breakaway power, which will offer superior strength to help break the bond between your trailer tongue and your hitch ball when they arestuck together. You can see here, it has the red wire, which is about a five foot long, ten gauge wire, and it comes with the in-line thirty amp fuse to protect it. It also has the L E D light here, right on the front.
It's three diode L E D light, for use at night. It's very bright when trying to hook up in thenight time. It does also come with the mounting hardware. You can see the three bolts, used right here when you mount it to your A-frame trailer. It bolts right on, and it does ground through this connection to your your trailer. You want to make sure, when you install those bolts, that you have a good clean connection. It also comes with this emergency crank handle that has a three quarter inch socket on the end, here.
That would be used in a situation where you might have lost power, and you won't be able to operate the jack. You can actually operate it manually. What you would do is, at the very top, here, they have a rubber plug that you can just pull out. If I can tilt it a little bit, you'll be able to see, there's a three quarter inch bolt up there. All you would need to do to operate it manually is just take this socket, and the handle, put it right onto that, and then as you crank it, you can raise or lower it manually using this handle.
When you're done, you can just put your plug back in. It does have a removable foot pad. It's right done here. If you pull this clip out, and thenpull the pin, you'll be able to see the foot pad comes right off. To reinstall it back in there, just line your pad up with the hole. Push it through, and then just put your clip back on to secure it. This is a bolt-on installation, as I mentioned.
It comes with the mounting hardware. It mounts to a standard A-frame coupler. It does have a weight capacity of thirty five hundred pounds. It does have a lift of eighteen inches. The tube diameter itself is two and three sixteenths. I do have this jack fully retracted. What I'm going to do is give you a measurement from the ground up to the bottom where it mounts to your trailer. It's going to be ten and three eighths inches to the bottom of the mounting bracket. That's with it fully retracted. This does come with a one year limited warranty. What I want to do is, I have a twelve volt power source here, so I'm going to show you how this light comes on, and how the jack would operate. We'll take this red wire, hook it to our twelve volt power. Then to ground it, since we don't have it mounted to a trailer, I'm going to just hook a ground to this foot plate to get a good ground connection. You'll be able to see, when I turn on the light, you'll be able to see the three diodes right there. Over here we have the retract on the two buttons up front. One is for the light, this one's for the jack itself. It'll have R E T for retract, and E X T for extend. If we just push the extend button, you can see how the jack would extend upwards. When you pull your finger off. let's put the ground back on. There we go. I'll show you, when you pull your finger off, it will automatically stop. Just push it down to retract it. Just like that. Very simple operation. That should do it for the review on part number JET-3500, the Stromberg Carlson electric A-frame tongue jack. .

Product very easy to install. Worked the first time. Love the length of the jack extension and the foot (no longer need a cement block and several pieces of wood). Wish it were a little faster. Haven't tried it yet with the trailer loaded. 58656
Replacement of the existing unit was quick and happily uneventful - a best case scenario. I now have a working jack on my trailer where I did not before, and it's even quieter than the old unit when the old unit was still working. Very happy. 134683

Super Support Thanks etrailer for your super support. We had an accident while traveling through New Orleans, resulting in damage to our tongue jack. Our tow vehicle went to a shop but I took on the trailer repair. A quick on-line search found several available. Yours was about 18% less in price and the "no charge" shipping made it even better. The really good news is that within 48 hours, I had the new jack installed and working. Your prompt action, and letting me track the progress, certainly took the stress out of what had been a worrisome problem. I have you bookmarked and if I ever need anything that you supply, be assured you will hear from me again. Burlyn L Keller LT, USN retired 4313
Installed this on my 28' Cargo Trailer and it worked very well. Wired it into the power feed from the truck to the trailer and it lifts and lowers the trailer without an issue. Haven't put it through a heavy load test yet, but it does not appear to strain much with the truck running and a few hundred pounds to tongue weight. 65635

This seems to be a good product, but there were no directions on the electrical connections. A novice might have problems with this. I am replacing an existing jack and have a construction background, everyone who buys one may not be experienced. There was nothing telling me what the side rubber plugs were for, they seem to be in the right place for the manual jack handle. A short person would have some problems turning the manual handle stuck in the top of the jack since it is shaped like a speed handle, handle should be shorter. I would appreciate a more indepth owners manual, rather than one sheet with little info. Maybe if I write the manufacture direct they will supply me one or there may be one on line. 24216

A piece of crap. Mine quit 2nd time out and switch was broken . I could not get up or down. Tried to use manual crank and it did not work either. ended up breaking the housing trying to get switch out. Now I am confronted with broken unit, not knowing if I will be able to get my $ back. Would not replace with same unit. 51842

Received product much earlier than expected. Was vary easy to install, took less than 15 minutes. operated flawlessly. would highly recommend this to anyone who is tired of manually jacking trailer to unhook and level unit. THANK YOU Don 50107
I was very happy with the service from e-trailer! order made, sent and recieved with no issues. The product was very easy to install. I was very impressed that it came with the fuse already in the wiring and the crank with socket as a back-up... other products require you to purchase separately. I have used it only a few times but so far so good!!! 74908

Ordered this product and rec'd it several days later. I installed this product in less than an hour and I am not handy by any means. I used the jack right away. The LED's are a big plus at night when you need to see to hook up your RV. Great customer service by etrailer. This is the second item I have bought from them in a 3 week span. 37510

the product will be mounted on our 30' travel trailer, making it much easier to hook and unhook from our vehicle. the product is a very high quality product and we are looking forward to many years of good service from the product. It was easily installed with the instruction given. Great overall experience 93050

So far so good. It was easy to install and has worked well. I have only used it once as a test. I like the fact that if my battery goes down that I can still use it manually. It looks good and just testing it told me that it will be a lot better that cranking it up, down, up and down again by hand. 35868

I received the Electric Jack 3 days after I ordered. It was shipped via regular / ground UPS. I installed the jack last night and it from start to finish, it took a maximum of 15 minutes. I used it briefly last night and am very impressed. 22141

the electric trailer tongue jack is very slow. I have another unit silmilar to this one that is 3X faster. it looks good but takes too long to extend and retract. 38042
