Sweat no more with this electric, fifth-wheel landing gear that can be used easily by even the least experienced camper. The landing gear can support up to 5,500 lbs, and the IP-rated switch provides safe operation. Drop legs adjust up to 16".
Note: Landing gear is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight, not to support the full GVWR of your trailer. Do not use landing gear to lift your trailer or RV during tire changes or service work because doing so will exceed the capacity of the landing legs.
Unlike some landing gear, Stromberg Carlson's was designed with safety in mind. The motor, manufactured by Lippert, won't trip circuits or cause problems with the coach's electrical systems. In addition, the IP-rated switch will not spark, so it can be mounted safely in the bottle-gas area.
Convenience is also a hallmark of this product. An inner drop leg on each jack makes leveling easy by allowing the jack feet to reach the ground quickly and at varying heights, saving time and thus reducing the draw on the trailer's battery. The cage pins that secure the drop legs can be replaced with spring-loaded pull pins (LG-119113; sold separately) that allow for single-handed operation. Large, rectangular, pivoting footpads are included, but you can use larger, 9-inch-diameter pads (LG-210475; sold separately) instead if you often camp on soft ground.
This system and its parts were designed to be compatible with most of the other fifth-wheel landing gear on the market, including Atwood and Lippert. If you're replacing your old landing gear, you can install this set from Stromberg Carlson using your existing mounting hardware.

installation instructions And specs For complete information.
Today we're going to be taking a look at the Strongberg-Carlson Electric Landing Gear. The landing gear can support up to 5500lbs. It's also going to feature an IP-rated switch that's going to feature safe operation. This set is going to be perfect for fifth-wheel campers. It's going to feature electric powered adjustment for easy operation. You've got the motor right here.
This right here is that IP-rated switch I was talking about. It's going to allow you to extend and retract the 30 amp fuses included, and it's got the wiring that can easily get connected to the motor and the power source to operate the extending and retracting functions of the jack itself. Really nice design. It's going to feature the single speed Lipert motor. That's going to have built-in safety features.
The motor won't trip circuits or cause problems with the coach's electrical systems. Again, the IP-rated switch is designed so it won't spark. That way, it can be mounted safely in the bottle gas area. The unit on each support leg is going to contain a drop leg. That's really going to help minimize the amount of jacking and amount of time it takes to jack.
It's going to help to level the trailer even on an uneven ground. The legs will adjust in increments of 1". It's going to feature the cage pins. Those are included to release the drop legs, and the total drop leg travel on each side is going to be 16". Plenty of versatility there when it comes to getting those out to where you need it. This piece right back here, this is going to be our crank handle, so it does have the manual option available with the crank handle.
That is included for manual operation. The unit's going to be constructed of heavy-duty steel. Really nice, strong dependable construction. The gearbox, which is located on this side over here by the motor. The gear box is going to be housed in a corrosion-resistant aluminum body. One of the things I want to mention too is that the gear box is going to have multiple stops, and can be fitted to the lead leg according to a position that would best work for your particular application. You can see that I have it mounted vertically which puts the motor on top, but again that can be rotated to best fit your application. The landing gear is designed to weld onto the trailer frame. The set is going to include 2 jacks. It's going to include your gear box, your motor, your switch. It's going to have the foot plates. They're on the base of the landing gear. It's going to have the telescoping cross-shaft. It's going to have the hand crank, and it's going to include your weld brackets. Two for each side. That way you can easily get it welded on. We do recommend that welding is done by a professional. It's going to come with all necessary hardware as well as installation and operation instructions. The amount of lift that this unit's going to offer is going to be 21" from the welding point. The cross-shaft, it does have a telescoping design. That way the length can adjust from 41" to 71". When it comes to the foot pads, that's going to be these pieces down here. Really nice large design, so that way they really help distribute the weight that's applied to the unit. Those foot pads are going to measure 8" by 5" wide. The tube, the outer tube right here, that's going to give us a square design and that's going to measure 2 1/2" by 2 1/2". Please keep in mind that the landing gear is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight. It's not intended to support the full gross vehicle weight rating of your trailer. You want to be careful not to use your landing gear in a way that would lift your trailer or RV, especially during tire changes or service work. You want to make sure that you don't exceed the capacity of the landing legs. This system and its parts are designed to be compatible with most of the other fifth wheel landing gear that's out on the market including Atwood and Lippert, so if you're replacing your old landing gear, you can install this set from Stongberg-Carlson using your existing mounting hardware. That's going to do it for today's review of the Strongberg-Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set.

First of all I want to say that any of the following comments by me is NOT a reflection on etrailer.com whose support and product shipping has been excellent. It is more as a informational thing than anything. I installed this unit on my 2007 28' Thor Transport toy hauler after it fell off the jacks and destroyed the landing gear (that just made me so happy, you just don't know the joy..). My first comments are for Thor, I want to thank them for the absolute cluster (you know what) of an install of the original gear. Totally inaccessible and the worst engineered and assembled garbage ever. The original gear was tack welded at the stops and the carriage bolts for the mounting brackets were installed so that you could not remove them, they all needed to be cut off, a real dream job in an inaccessible location. In addition, I had to remove the 5500 onan generator and the (2) 7.5 gallon propane tanks and the sheet metal enclosures and doors. Next I would like to thank Lippert and Stromberg Carlson for continuing their questionable design of these legs which are only supported by one tab (on the legs) and one bracket on each leg in the load bearing direction (the other tab supports the leg when in the non-load bearing position. And for the 2 extra bolts (1/4-20 x 1 1/2" with jam nuts) that no one seems to know where they go. Also, there is a lot to be desired with the instructions, but that's just me I guess. Be sure to accurately measure your existing brackets prior to getting started because this could be a game changer if they are off by more than a 1/4" or more, you would have to have your brackets cut off and re-welded. As for my Thor, they were off by about 1/8" and I was able to grind off the bottom of the lower tab (on the leg) to make them fit into my existing brackets. After completing the job (3 days in 105 degrees) I still have some questions about the carriage bolts that were shipped, if I were to do it again I would change the bolts to a much stronger bolt, but it's to late for me now. Etrailer had the best price and fastest shipping and were very helpful, would I buy again from them, you bet... 151953
Product was better quality than the original landing gear and fit perfectly on my 07 Keystone Cougar. Great Price! The dealer wanted $450 for just the follow leg and gear box plus 3 hours labor and I would have to wait 5 weeks. I ordered the complete system including motor for about $425 with shipping, had it in 2 days then I installed it in 2 hours. 199235

I found the product was of good to excellent quality. However when reviewing the installation directions it had no directions on how to wire the elec. motor to the control switch. I found the wiring instructions on the motor manufacturing web site. I would recommend that these instructions be with the installation instructions. Also when connecting the left & right landing gear together with the provided 1" square tube the bars were not long enough to make the span on a standard 5th wheel camper. I had to use my existing bar. I would use etrailer.com again and I hope this helps them make corrections to this package. 124726
I bought this to replace my landing legs on my 10 year old 5th wheel. The lg-1 is a complete conversion kit for a complete install or replacement of manual systems. I bought this because I had multiple problems with my original system and wanted to change out all the major parts at one time and be done with it so it was convenient for me to buy this. You can buy the parts separately if you want. The legs, motor, and gearbox were almost identical to what I had. The replacement took me 5 hours by myself. Everything worked great. Although the gearbox was a little noisy I am happy with this set. The price was great. The service when ordering was awesome. Free shipping and arrived on schedule. I would do business with Etrailer again definitely. 200395
I needed one replacement landing gear leg for my wildcat 5er but figured the other one would likely be needing replacement soon after so I ordered the complete assembly. It matched the OE landing gear mounting points perfectly and I had it installed in about an hour. The shipping always exceeds my expectations, I ordered on Sunday afternoon, it shipped Monday and was at my place before noon on Wednesday! 190131

I received this product well within the advertised time given. I installed the product using the easy to follow directions. Every thing fit exactly the same as the original equipment. I find the seller of the product and the manufacturer are both excellent providers. I highly recommend them both. 213031

I ordered the jack set on Monday morning and received it on Wednesday afternoon, which was quicker than I expected. They were priced reasonably and were a good fit for my RV. My only "issue" is, the gear box is a little noisier than my original one, but they work great. 220854
Product was exactly as advertised, time to process and ship item was extremely prompt. Repair was easier then expected. Will use your site in future if the need arises. Thank you. 254051
