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


The jack ia awesome. I hope my suggestion were helpful in making the product better!

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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • How Landing Gear Jacks are Connected to Fifth Wheel
  • The outer tube of the landing gear is attached to the fifth wheel frame via some frame clamps. The clamps themselves are usually welded to the trailer frame, and bolted clamps hold the outer jack tube in place. The inner tube of the jack will extend and retract, raising and lowering the front of the fifth wheel. The diagram I provided might make it a bit more clear for you.

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...

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...

  • 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.

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.

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.
