Stromberg Carlson Trailer Jack - LG-1

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 6,000 lbs, and the IP-rated switch provides safe operation. Drop legs adjust up to 16".


  • Perfect for 5th-wheel campers
  • Electric-powered adjustment for easy operation
  • Single-speed Lippert motor has built-in safety features
    • Motor won't trip circuits or cause problems with coach's electrical systems
    • IP-rated switch will not spark, so it can be mounted safely in bottle-gas area
  • Drop legs minimize jacking time and help to level the trailer on uneven ground
    • Legs adjust in 1" increments
    • Cage pins included to release drop legs
      • Upgrade to spring-loaded pull pins (LG-119113; sold separately) for simpler drop-leg release
  • Hand crank included for manual operation
  • Heavy-duty steel construction
  • Gear box housed in a corrosion-resistant aluminum body
  • Landing gear welds onto trailer frame
  • Set includes 2 jacks, gearbox, motor, switch, footplates, cross shaft, hand crank and hardware


  • Lift: 21" from weld-on point
  • Drop-leg travel: 16"
  • Combined weight capacity: 6,000 lbs
  • Cross shaft length: 41" - 71"
  • Footpad dimensions: 8" long x 5" wide x 2" tall
  • Black tube dimensions: 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"
  • 1-Year warranty

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.

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

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

Do you have a question about this Trailer Jack?

  • Availability of Replacement Lead Jack and Parts for Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Landing Gear # LG-1
  • The jack with the motor is referred to as the lead jack, while the other jack is called the follower. Since the jack on the motor side is in need of replacement, you would need the lead jack. The lead jack is not terribly difficult to replace. You would need to disconnect the drive rod that connects the two legs, remove the lead jack, install the replacement lead jack, and pull the motor and gearbox off the defective jack and install on the replacement. If you were using the Stromberg...

  • Is the Stromberg Carlson # LG-179013 the Same as the Lippert Universal Fit Lead Jack # 179013
  • I spoke with my contact at Stromberg Carlson and the Replacement Lead Jack with Drop Leg, # LG-179013, is the same part as the Lippert Universal Fit Lead Landing Gear, # 179013. The only difference between the two products is that they are sold through different companies so the part numbers are slightly altered. If you were interested in a replacement follow jack with drop leg you can took at part # LG-179014 or the entire assembly is available with part # LG-1.

  • Stromberg-Carlson Replacement Follow Jack for 5th Wheel Landing Gear Models LG-1 and LG-183708
  • The Stromberg-Carlson Replacement Follow Jack for 5th Wheel Landing Gear, part # LG-179014, is a replacement for the non-driven sides of the LG-1 powered landing gear and LG-183708 manual landing gear. Both of these landing gear products use weld-on installation and both have a 6000-lb weight rating. According to my research on the Forest River website, the Cardinal 35-foot 5th wheel trailer model 3030RS has a dry tongue weight of 2,550 lbs. A set of landing gear rated for 6000 lbs will...

  • Replacement Scissor Jack Handle for a 2007 Gulf Stream Amerilite Travel Trailer
  • Your Gulf Stream trailer could have any number of brands of scissor jacks on it so I would need to know the brand of the jack or the size of the bolt the handle fits on to determine the proper size handle if available. Handle # JCH-1 is for scissor jacks that have a 3/4 inch bolt. The same goes for handle # BAL-24033 for BAL scissor jacks. This is likely the size you need. The handle you purchased, # LG-119226, is for landing gear, # LG-1, but not scissor jacks.

  • Stromberg Carlson Landing Gear # LG-1 for Jayco Qwest Fifth Wheel Camper
  • The Stromberg Carlson # LG-1 is an industry-standard landing gear that should fit on your fifth wheel with no problems. The mounting brackets weld directly to the frame of your fifth wheel, and the jacks would then mount into the brackets. As long as your Jayco Qwest has exposed frame members under the trailer loft for the brackets to weld to, the LG-1 will work great for you. I have linked you to a copy of our return policy.

  • Replacement Landing Gear Drive Leg for a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Replacement landing gear leg # LG-179013 fits landing gear set # LG-1 and # LG-183708. The size of 5th wheel trailer landing gear is pretty much all the same. Some install differently than others. This particular type requires brackets welded directly to the trailer frame like in the picture I included. A set like # BD500161 on the other hand has brackets that get welded to the frame. If you are unsure of the brand you have it is possible that if you get a replacement leg of a different...

  • I have a solution for your 1996 Avion 5th wheel, however, it is not as simple as getting two new legs. Your Avion was manufacturered by Fleetwood and the landing gear was manufacturered by RBW. Fleetwood discontinued the Avion and RBW sold out to Al-Ko. Al-Ko decided to discontinue the landing gear and sold the rights to Atwood Mobile.

This item replaces the follow jack for your tandem landing gear. It is the jack in the landing gear that does not have a crank or motor mounted to it. It works with most brands of landing gear and is constructed of heavy-duty steel. It has a lift of 21 inches from the weld-on...

  • How to Wire the Motor and Switch for Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear LG-1
  • The shorter, fused wire on the switch should be pink and the longer wire should be the true red wire. To connect the switch for the # LG-1 Stromberg Carlson landing gear motor, you will connect the longer black and red wires from the switch to the matching wires on the motor. The pink fused wire will be run to the trailer battery for 12V power on the positive terminal, and the shorter black wire will be grounded to the negative battery terminal. It is a little confusing since the switch...

  • Locating Replacement Gears for Landing Gear Legs on a 2000 Cameo 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I have some information that may help, however, replacement gears for the landing gear legs on your 2000 Cameo fifth wheel trailer may be difficult to find. Typically, landing gear manufacturers do not stamp their name or part number on their landing gear legs. Since most landing gear manufacturers do not make their parts interchangeable between one another, the only way to locate the correct replacement gears is by knowing the manufacturer and part number of the landing gear which involves...

  • Tandem Landing Gear Recommendations For Thor Vortex Toy Hauler RV

Should you lose power, there is a manual adjustment on these landing gears. I have attached a photo that shows where the included tool is inserted.

  • Landing Gear Recommendation for 2008 Forest River Sierra 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Your best option maybe to replace the entire system. I recommend the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set, part # LG-1. This set has a combined weight capacity of 6,000 pounds. It is possible to replace the leg motor, cross shaft and gearbox while your 2008 Forest River Sierra 5th wheel is attached to your truck. Replacing the motor, cross shaft and gearbox will not increase the lift capacity, which is another reason to replace the entire system.

You might check the wiring of both the power and ground wires you are using for the motor because it sounds like the problem lies somewhere in there. You could try running a jumper cable from the positive side of the battery of your vehicle to the jack and the same for the ground...

  • Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Motor Just Spins and Does Not Raise/Lower Jack Leg
  • It sounds like the motor is not engaging the gears and/or screw inside the leg on your landing gear. There is a screw and fixed nut inside most jacks. A handle or motor turns the gears that turn the screw to raise or lower the jack leg. There could be a roll pin in the shaft of the motor that engages the gears that is missing but you would have to take apart the jack to find it. The good news is both the gearbox, # LG-179015, and motor, # LG-142178, are available. We also have a repair...

  • Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Jack Recommendation for a 2003 Cherokee 295L 5th Wheel
  • I think I have a better solution for you. I think the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set part # LG-1 would be a better match for your 2003 Cherokee 295L 5th Wheel trailer. If you check out this jack you will see that the amount of jack and motor that is above the top mounting bracket is considerably less than the # BD500161 that you referenced so it should work well for you as long as its 6,000 lb capacity would be adequate.

  • Can a Second Motor be Added to Stromberg-Carlson Landing Gear to Operate Individually
  • If you have Stromberg-Carlson landing gear # LG-1 then you could use motor # LG-217884 but you would also need gearbox, # LG-179015 and would have to have a professional welder weld on the mounting brackets for the motor and gearbox to match the other leg. If you did this you would not need the connecting rod for both jacks. You would probably want to extend the switch wires so that both switches are next to each other.

  • Landing Gear on 1996 Prowler 5th Wheel Cannot Take Weight of Trailer
  • If the motor and gear box on your Prowler's landing gear appear to be working properly but the jacks do not withstand the weight of the trailer, then it is likely that the main threaded screw that drives the inner portion of the leg is stripped. This part is not offered on its own. If you have Stromberg-Carlson, Atwood or Lippert 3000-lb-rated landing gear you can replace the lead and follow legs and re-install your motor and cross-shaft using parts # LG-179013 and # LG-179014.

In order to identify correct replacement parts you will need to know the model number and capacity of your landing gear. Usually, you can find the model information directly...

You can verify this by measuring the distance between the mounting clamps that are welded to the trailer frame.
