Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • How to Lubricate Trailer Jacks
  • Lubing up jacks typically requires just removing the top cap of the jack and spraying all of the moving parts with a lithium grease and/or spraying the same type of grease up the inner leg of the jack to get all of the moving parts from that angle as well. Some jacks have zerk fittings on them to allow grease to easily be pumped in them. Others like the Shelby jacks have small holes drilled above and below the handle near the top that you could direct the hose of a spray lubricant in. If...

  • Replacement Fulton Dual-Wheel Trailer Jack for Boat Trailer
  • I suggest the Fulton dual-wheel Bolt-Thru Swivel Marine Jack # FXPD15L rated for 1500-lbs. This jack offers 12-inches of lift and features dual 6-inch wheels for easier handling on softer surfaces. In the event that this jack does not fit your mounting plate you can still install it using the included frame clamps that fit 3 x 5 trailer frames.

  • Replacement Part for Trailer Jack
  • We do offer a wide range of jack types as well as replacement parts that can be seen on the two linked pages. Most replacement parts are going to be brand- or item-specific so selecting an item will be easier if you can identify the maker of your jack and/or its part number. Most of our a-frame jacks use a 2- or 2-1/4-inch outer tube diameter, such as Bulldog # BD1750290317. Atwood jack # AT80009 uses a 1-3/4-inch diameter inner tube and a 2-inch outer tube.

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation for Trailer with 6 inch Tall Trailer Frame
  • We have a solution that will work for you, but none of the bolt-on trailer jacks we offer are compatible with a 6 inch tall trailer frame. For a trailer frame of that height, I'd recommend you use a weld-on jack like part # FTJ120W0301. This jack has a 1200 lb capacity, and easily swivels rearward for storage with the pull of a pin.

  • Repair Kit for Electric Landing Gear That Does Not Extend When Motor Runs
  • If the driver's-side landing gear motor on your 2005 Four Winns 5th wheel operates but the jack does not extend, then the issue is likely to be the gearbox that connects the motor to the jack leg. These gearboxes do have parts that simply wear out and we offer both replacement gear boxes as well as repair kits. You can review the linked page for available replacement gear kits. You can check your landing gear for brand and part numbers that will help ensure you select the correct kit....

  • Will Shelby # 5876A8 Replace Broken Shelby 5856A Sidewind Trailer Jack
  • I called my contact at Shelby and asked about replacing your older Shelby 5856A jack with a newer part # 5876A8. They told me you should have no problem at all using the bracket you already have welded to your trailer frame with the new replacement. As you stated it does increase the capacity to 1,500-lbs. This jack has a 10-inch lift and features an 8-in diameter wheel. This jack is not available without the hardware included, but my contact said you can use the hardware you have...

  • Powered Trailer Jack Recommendation for Best Ground Clearance Under Trailer Frame
  • I wouldn't let the higher capacity of the Lippert Jack part # JET-3555 deter you from using it. Having more capacity than needed for a trailer jack is actually a good thing as it will allow the jack to last longer and operate quicker. It's retracted bracket height is 6-3/4 inches so it would work well for you in that regard plus it's priced great so it really would be your best option.

  • Recommended Dual Motor Landing Gear Set for 2008 Rage'N 5th Wheel Toy Hauler Camper
  • It sounds like you're looking for heavier duty landing gear to help better level and stabilize your 2008 Rage'N 5th Wheel Toy Hauler. The Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear Set # BD500161 that you referenced is a great option for upgrading the landing gear on your trailer.

  • Recommended 2000 lbs. Trailer Jack to Allow the Most Clearance
  • The shortest we have is about 13 inches from the bracket to the top of either the jack or the handle like the Pro Series Round, A-Frame Jack # PSRV20000103. Another option, since you may not get the clearance you want, is to switch to a side mount jack such as the Pro Series Round, Pipe-Mount Swivel Jack # PS1401060303 is a weld on jack. Or you can go with the Pro Series Round Snap-Ring # PS1400300303 for a bolt on option.

  • Which Trailer Jack Do I Need for My 1994 Mastercraft Boat Trailer
  • We do have some options for you, however we do not have anything that matches the bolt pattern of your current jack plate. Instead of trying to match the bolt pattern of the welded plate you can get a bolt-on jack that uses U-bolts to connect to the trailer. Which jack you need will depend on the weight capacity and height of your current jack. You'll also want to make sure the U-bolts will fit around the trailer frame. I've linked our selection of bolt-on jacks for you. A few...

  • Replacement Swivel Trailer Jack For 1994 Mastercraft Boat Trailer
  • The trailer jacks we offer that are similar to the # FTJ120W0301 you came from all use a mounting plate that has different dimensions than what you said your trailer jack plate has. You can remove the welded mounting plate on your trailer and have a new weld-on mounting plate installed or you can use a bolt-on jack as a replacement. The bolt-on option may be the best way to go due to the ease of installation and replacement if needed. For a bolt-on sidewind jack I recommend part...

  • How is 4,500 lb Husky Trailer Jack Rated
  • Our powered A-frame trailer jacks are rated by lifting strength. So a jack like the Husky Brute # HT87641 which has a 4,500 lb capacity could lift tongue weight of up to 4,500 lbs. Your trailer that weighs 10k would have a tongue weight of around 1,000 lbs so this jack would easily work well for it.

  • Recommended Replacement Electric A-Frame Jack
  • Since your trailer battery and power line fuse are good I suspect that your jack's gearbox has been damaged from being over-extended. Better electric jacks can have built-in safeguards to prevent this kind of damage but value-priced products like the JackQuick 3500 may not always share this feature. We do not sell this brand so we do not have replacement parts for it the way we do for the brands we carry, like Stromberg Carlson, Ultra Fab and Husky. You can use the linked page to select...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Husky Brute Electric Jack # HT87247 on a 10K Car Hauler
  • You are correct, a trailer jack is only going to be lifting the tongue weight of the trailer. This means that it does not have to have the same or higher capacity as the gross trailer weight. On a trailer weighing in at 10K the tongue weight at 10 to 15 percent would be 1,000 to 1,500lbs. A jack rated for 4,500 pounds, such as # HT87247, that you have referenced, would have more than enough capacity for the 10K trailer. The higher the capacity of the jack will make it easier for the...

  • Can Scissor Jacks be Used to Lift an RV 1 Foot Off the Ground
  • Scissor jacks such as # JSC-30-IND are not meant to lift up vehicle or trailer so I do not recommend them for this application. What I recommend is to use leveling blocks such as # CAM44515 for a 10-pack. You can drive right up onto these blocks though it may be difficult to get it up to a foot tall without using a bunch of them stacked like a pyramid. Another option is to use a bottle jack such as # ALL640407 to lift the vehicle and then use the blocks or jack stands to hold the...

  • Is there a Narrower Bracket for the Trailer Valet or Recommendation for Similar Product
  • There isn't another bracket but I do have a solution for you. Instead of using the regular Trailer Valet # STC-V211 you can use the Trailer Valet XL, # TVXL2 for a 2 inch ball, or # TVXL25 for a 2-5/16 inch ball. It works like a tow dolly but functions like the regular Trailer Valet except that it does not permanently attach to the trailer and doesn't have a jack. I have linked a video review of this product for you to check out.

  • Replacement Stabilizer Jack for a 1999 Coleman Fleetwood Bayside Trailer
  • There is an easy solution to this. Just measure one of the other stabilizer jacks still on the trailer and select the one that is the closest match. If that is not feasible I recommend going with a longer one such as # AT82297 since it can be adjusted up whereas if you choose one that is too short it can't be adjusted lower.

  • How Could Jack Handle be Secured to Jack Body so that it Stays Horizontal When Stored
  • Sounds like you are looking for a way to keep the handle of the Dutton Lainson jack part # DL22580 horizontal when the jack is in the horizontal, stored position. Most likely you want to this so the handle doesn't drag. This isn't a super common situation so there isn't a specific solution for this but what you can do is use a strap like the part # 753-2030-08 to basically strap the handle to the main body of the jack so that it wouldn't turn down.

  • Husky Brute Jack Has Light On But Will Not Go Up Or Down
  • Since you did not say if this was a new installation or if you have had the jack for a while there are a couple things you can check to find the problem with the Husky Jack. Since it is grounded through the mounting hardware you will want to make sure the hardware is securely fastened and the attach points are not corroded and preventing a good ground. If the ground checks out you can check out the wiring to the switch for raising and lowering the jack with a circuit tester like part...

If that distance is 17-1/2 inches then the Bulldog part # BD500161 will work well for you.

  • Husky Brute Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Aluminum Trailer

A trailer jack like the Husky Brute part # HT87247 with it's 4,500 lb lifting strength would have no problem lifting a 1,000 lb tongue weight. This is my favorite powered jack because it uses ball bearings in the screw which allows it to operate smoother and quicker plus last longer. It grounds through the hardware so you would need to...

  • Do the Husky Brute Jacks Require any Lubrication for Maintenance
  • I checked with Husky and for their Brute jacks like the part # HT87248 that you referenced there isn't much maintenance required. Husky states that due to the design of the ball bearing screw design the inner assembly requires no regular lubrication. To keep your jack in great working order you would want to fully extend the jack and clean the inner jack tube once a year. After cleaning coat the tube with a light grease or silicone spray lube.

  • Are Trailer Scissor Jacks Made for Leveling or Stabilizing a Trailer or Both
  • Scissor jacks on trailers can be used as levelers or stabilizers. They are just not meant to lift up the weight of the trailer so that would limit the amount of leveling they can do. I recommend also using leveling blocks # UF48-979051, or the ones you already have, so that they are doing most of the leveling and the scissor jacks can be used to keep the trailer stable.

Check out the picture I attached that shows the part # FXP15L installed on a 4 inch tall trailer frame like yours. Notice the orientation of the bracket on the outside of the frame.

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Powered A-Frame Jack that Stops Working Occasionally
  • It could be as simple as a loose power wire or an intermittent ground. Check the condition of the power wire attachment and then check to make sure the main ground of your trailer is connected to a clean metal surface. Next time it locks up try running a jumper wire from a car battery's positive power post and then ground the negative post of the battery to the trailer frame. If you see the jack start to work normally at this point then the problem is in the wiring. Otherwise it's an...

  • Would Bulldog Jack part # BD1700100317 Work on a 4,500 lb Trailer
  • For your A-frame trailer the Bulldog Jack part # BD1700100317 would be a great option confirmed to fit and would have more than enough capacity. Your trailer will most likely only have a tongue weight of 450 lbs and this jack has a lifting capacity of 4,500 lbs. Using a higher rated jack would be ideal though still as it means the jack will never be strained and will last a long time.

  • I pulled up pictures of your Forest River Rockwood Windjammer 3025W and the Husky Brute part # HT87247 that you referenced would fit it well. This is my favorite jack to recommend as it has ball bearings in the screw which allow it to operate, smoother, quicker, and be more reliable. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Bulldog Trailer Jack Recommendation for Trailer with 2-1/2 inch Pipe Mount on Trailer
  • The Bulldog Round, Pipe-Mount Swivel Jack - Sidewind - 15 inch Lift - 7,000 lbs, item # BD198250, has a male pipe on the jack and a female receiver that welds to the trailer. This female receiver has an inside diameter of just over 2-1/2 inches to fit on the 2-1/2 inch male pipe welded to the jack. This jack utilizes a 5/8 inch pin to secure the jack to the trailer. When fully extended it is 31 inches from where it mounts to jack to the ground. It sounds like this jack would work well...

  • Landing Gear Jacks Will Raise Trailer then Click and Stop, Click Again, then Start Working Again
  • The noise you are hearing is a circuit breaker tripping. That is what those 4 black boxes are in your picture. The circuit breakers are auto-resetting and the click you hear is when it trips and resets. It is happening because the motor is drawing more power than the circuit breaker is rated for. So to protect the circuit the breaker trips so the motor cannot draw excessive power and damage something. This might be happening if the battery on the trailer is bad or needs a charge....

  • A-Frame Jack Replacement for a Carry On 5x10LGW2K Trailer
  • I looked up pictures of your Carry On 5x10LGW2K trailer and it uses a standard A-frame design so for an easy replacement the Pro Series Jack part # PSEA20000103 would be a great topwind option just like what came on the trailer. For a caster wheel you would want the part # PS1400750340 or for just a standard foot plate part # PS1400700340.

  • Is 18 inches of Travel Adequate for an RV Travel Trailer A-Frame Jack
  • 18 inches of travel for a trailer jack is typically more than needed. You would want to measure from the mounting bracket on your trailer down to the ground to determine what you would need. The range of the # UF38-944017 is 9-1/4 inches retracted and 27-1/4 inches extended.

With all the screws removed you should have no problem with the cover. These very narrow holes will require a long and thin phillips head screwdriver.

  • Recommended Jack For Raising Sunray Travel Trailer To Change Tire
  • To lift your trailer I recommend using a jack like the Powerbuilt Unijack, part # ALL620471. This jack has a 6,000-lb weight capacity and the lift range is between 11 and 21 inches. Scissor jacks like part # JSC-30-IND that you referenced are not recommended for lifting trailers and are to be used for stabilization only. You want to make sure the wheel on the other side of the trailer is chocked and not able to move when changing the tire.

  • Best Weight Distribution System for 2007 Fleetwood Utah
  • I recommend replacing your jack with a center mount like the Pro Series Round, A-Frame Jack w/ Removable Footplate # PSEA2000-14007. That will be your best option to get a weight distribution system on your trailer. Once you have that settled you will need to find a weight distribution system appropriate for your 2007 Fleetwood Utah. The Fleetwood is a 3500 lb. trailer, so the loaded and ready to tow to tongue weight is likely to be 400 lbs. or less. So a weight distribution system...

  • I would recommend replacing the landing gear you have on your 2009 Holiday Rambler with a new set like the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear, part # UF17-943010. This system has a combined weight capacity of 12,000-lbs and has a retracted height of 36 inches with an extended height of 74 inches. This system uses 12V power so there is no more hand cranking to raise and lower your trailer. Each jack has its own toggle switch so you are in control.

That measurement is 12-1/2 inches. I have included a picture showing this for you. For a complete single motor system with the motor mounted sideways we have # LC333964 that measures 15-1/2 inches between the bracket...

He confirmed for me that they have updated the switch plates in the lading gear set. While the switch plates were previously made of plastic, they are now made of aluminum. This update happened around the end of 2015. The aluminum switch plate is much sturdier than the plastic switch plate. The # BD500161 landing gear set is reviewed highly by our customers.

  • Trailer Jack to Lift Horse Trailer to Change Tire
  • We have a couple of options that you might like. First, you could use what is called a farm jack, # RP7033400. This is a stand alone jack meaning it does not get attached to the trailer. But farm jacks have many uses and will work well to help lift the trailer to change a tire. A similar device that is more compact is a bottle jack, # ALL640407. This jack is easier to store since it is smaller than a farm jack but is still very versatile. And for a bonus third option, if the trailer...

  • Will a 3,500 Pound Capacity Electric Jack Work Well on 7,500 Pound Travel Trailer

The jack capacity does not need to match the weight of the trailer since the jack will not be lifting the weight of the entire trailer, only the trailer's weight at the tongue. Our most popular 3,500 pound A-frame electric jack is the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack with 23 inch Lift # JET-3755. I've attached a review video of this jack for you.

  • Quiet Electric Trailer Jack with Remote Operation for Use in Levitation Illusion
  • I think the Husky Super Brute # HT82022 is going to be your best option. It uses a ball bearing type of system rather than a screw and nut design like most jacks. These means less friction and thus less noise. It also comes with wireless remotes that would probably work better than a foot pedal would and is easier to conceal. It will also give you a little more flexibility as to how the illusion is done since there would not have to be a cable and switch attached to the jack. I have included...

The pin included with the drop leg has a diameter of 3/8 inches while the pin included with the recommended flat plate has a diameter of 5/16 inches. This means the holes on the leg are slightly bigger than they are on the jack, so the pin will have no problem fitting through as long as it's 5/16 inches like the # 516-212TR. I have linked...

  • Will a Fulton F2 Swivel Jack Fit a 2x5 Inch Trailer Frame
  • The threaded parts of the u-bolts for this jack are not long enough to secure the jack to a 2 inch wide frame so you may need to weld on a spacer so that it fits well. Other than that you can use Fulton jack # F1413140334. Another option is to use jack # FXP15L. The worst case scenario is that you would have to get different bolts but that is a lot better than welding on a spacer. I have linked videos of both jacks for you.
