  • Fulton F2 Jack Recommendation for a Fishing Boat Trailer
  • The Fulton F2 Trailer Jack part # F1413020134 that you referenced is a great jack that has a 1,600 lb capacity. Since your trailer's tongue weight would be far less than that this jack would work great for you. This jack also has a limited lifetime warranty. This jack fits 3"x3" and 3"x4" tongues. Check out the review video I attached for this jack for more info.

  • Replacement Drop Leg for a Bulldog Powered Trailer Jack
  • Yes, the replacement drop leg is part # BD500190, and is what you need for your Bulldog powered jack # BD500187. I called our representative a Bulldog to confirm as well. It will include the drop leg and pin. It's always a good idea to double-check if any of the other components are damaged, or attachment points show any signs of stress from the incident. If that's the case, the jack may need to be replaced. I included an installation video and information article for you too.

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack for a 2006 Nash 22h Travel Trailer That Weighs 4,087 Pounds
  • Your 2006 Nash 22h travel trailer weighs 4,087 pounds and is 23 feet based on my research. It will have a tongue weight of 408-614 pounds. Take into consideration that the 4,087 pounds is the dry weight of your Nash travel trailer. The Pro Series A-frame jack # PSRV20000103 you referenced will not work because the outer tube diameter is 2-1/8 and your Atwood trailer coupler # AT81912 has a 2-1/4 inch diameter. I recommend the Atwood jack # 273400. It has a capacity of 2,000 pounds...

  • Will Husky Brute Trailer Jacks Wireless Remotes Interfere with Each Other
  • Anything that uses a wireless remote does have the potential to interfere with another wireless device. The best solution would be to use hardwired (traditional) powered jacks to avoid that issue completely. I recommend a different approach using one of the Brute jacks, # HT87641, and then using a stabilizer with 2 motors like # UF39-941705. Or even a model with a single motor, # UF39-941602. Please note that jacks are not meant to hold up a trailer indefinitely. You would need to...

  • Recommended Ultra-Fab Power Twin II Electric Stabilizer with Dual Motors for 2013 Itasca Navion RV

  • Can Andersen Rapid Jack # AM3620 be Used on Tandem Axle 5th Wheel RV to Change Flat Tire
  • When it comes to the Andersen Camper Leveler, # AM3604, this was designed for use with single axle trailers. A tandem axle trailer would require that you use a leveler on the front and rear axle to properly level the trailer. Due to the leveler being 15 inches in length, a tandem axle trailer typically doesn't provide enough room between the two tires in order to use the leveler on the rear axle. As for the Rapid Jack, # AM3620, I spoke with my contact at Andersen and although we...

  • The Ultra-Fab leveling blocks # UF48-979051 are designed for leveling trailers and RV's and the reason they are quite rigid on top and extremely durable. I called our representative at Ultra-Fab and there isn't any type of top cap available. The Lynx levelers kit # 77433 (10 pack) or kit # 70359 (4 pack) will have a leveler cap option.

  • Stromberg Carlson Landing Recommendation to Replace Damaged RBW Landing Gear

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Jack that Doesn't work When Not Connected to a Tow Vehicle
  • The problem is most likely the ground circuit for the jack. Since most trailers ground to the tow vehicle it sounds like the jack isn't able to ground properly when you are trying to power it with just your trailer. The jack grounds through it's mounting hardware to the trailer frame. If the trailer isn't grounding to a vehicle like when it is connected to your vehicle it won't work.

  • How Many 5th Wheel Camper Leveler Are Recommended on a 2013 38 Foot Heartland Big Country
  • You will need one leveler # AM3604 per axle for stability purposes. I believe you have a 2-axle (7000 pound per) 5th wheel so I would recommend getting 2. This leveler # AM3604 provides from 1 inch to 4 inches of lift depending on the configuration needed. These also work great on trailers weighing up to 30,000 pounds. I have also included a short video review of this product for your reference.

  • Can Ultra-Fab Electric Landing Gear be Installed on a Car Hauler Trailer

  • Split Reel Winch Solution for Bringing Two Heavy Things Closer Together

  • What are the Measurements of the Flat Part of the Foot Plate on Pro Series 2K Pipe Mount Swivel Jack
  • The flat part of the foot plate on Pro Series trailer jack # PS1401060303 is 2-3/4 inches by 5-7/8 inches. Adding a wheel is going to require modifying the jack somehow; either bolting or welding and that will void the warranty and could compromise the structural integrity of the jack. Another option is a cart such as # SL1500DR319-P which would cost about the same as 4 of the jacks. Jacks are not made to move things around so much. But this cart is and it has a 1,500 pound capacity;...

  • Compatibility of Bulldog # BD500161 Landing Gear with 1994 Keystone Komfort 5th Wheel
  • The Bulldog # BD500161 landing gear isn't vehicle specific. It will fit many different applications. It would be compatible as long as your existing landing gear mounts have an inside to inside dimension of 17-1/2 inches, as shown in the diagram I provided. I don't have any information about which jacks your rig was equipped with from the factory. The landing gear supports a maximum of 30 percent of the loaded trailer weight, so with a 10K capacity, these jacks will have plenty of capacity...

The Fulton # FTJ12000101 has a 1200 lb capacity, and is very highly rated by our customers, as you can see by the reviews shown at the bottom of the product description page I've linked you to. Fulton also offers the higher rated # F141133, which has a 1500 lb capacity, a 600 hour salt-spray rating on the internals and a 1200 hour rating on the exterior finish.

  • Do Both Wheels of the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 Turn When Handle is Cranked, Will it Work In Gravel
  • Yes, both of the wheels of the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211 turn when the crank is being turned. The wheels are connected so both wheel also stop turning when the brake is applied. Depending on how deep the gravel is the wheels might have traction, or they might not. If the gravel is super deep and your trailer doesn't have much tongue weight then I would imagine the tires wouldn't get good traction. If the gravel isn't deep and is smooth the tires should get decent traction since...

  • Landing Gear Recommendation for a Dump Trailer
  • Due to the weight of your trailer and the fact that you don't have an a-frame trailer a better jack setup would be a powered landing gear set like the Stromberg Carlson part # LG-1.

  • Recommended Leveler Jack for a Dual Axle Horizon Boat Trailer
  • Thanks for sending us a picture! Yes, I recommend the Anderson leveler # AM3604 because it provides leveling at any increment from 1/2 inch up to 4 inches. It's designed to work with dual axle trailers and will work with trailers weighing up to 30,000 pounds and will come with 1 leveler and 1 chock. It is possible that there may be enough travel in the suspension, that the tire will not be completely off the ground. However, it's very likely that it will work just fine to lift, remove...

  • Can an Electric Trailer Tongue Jack Be Wired to Trailer Lighting Circuits
  • It is not possible to wire any other electrical components, apart from lights and low-power items such as the on-off circuit for a backup camera, to the lighting circuits on a trailer. Connecting any power-hungry device to lighting circuits would result in excessive current draw and could potentially damage the trailer wiring harness and/or the wiring in the vehicle itself.

In order to replace the gearbox and motor on your landing gear, you will need to use jack stands under the frame of your trailer and/or hook up the fifth wheel trailer to your truck for support.

  • Weight Capacity of UItra-Fab # UF39-941707 Stabilizer Jack
  • The Ultra-Fab # UF39-941707 could be used at the rear of your motorhome, but it's not meant to be used at the front. The 6000 lb capacity of the stabilizer jack can easily handle stabilizing the rear overhang of your Class C, but the front end would be too heavy. Keep in mind, the stabilizing jack is meant to provide support, and not to lift the vehicle.

  • If the Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack # JET-3500 is lifting to it's maximum travel distance of 18 inches then the jack is working fine and you just have too tall of a setup for this jack to work ideally for. Putting down a FloTool Jack Stand part # FT11933MI would take up some of this room. If it's stopping short then there is an internal problem. If internal components were to fail, replacement of the jack is the only option.

The tow vehicle 7-way's 12V feed is designed to provide a "trickle charge" to maintain a charged trailer battery while you're driving but not to charge a depleted battery or to operate a device like a powered tongue jack.

You can either power the jack through the accessory circuit on the 7-way or via an auxiliary battery installed on the trailer.

This would be a solution if the implement has a gooseneck style of coupler. If you have an A-frame trailer you would need to upgrade the current jack to a part # BD500187.

  • Given the substantial size of the frame I wonder about its tongue weight. The Trailer Valet has a 500-lb maximum tongue weight rating which could certainly be inadequate for some very large trailers. It is a good idea to verify your trailer's tongue weight before selecting a jack/trailer mover to ensure it is rated adequately. We offer a tongue weight scale # 5780 from Sherline that makes it easy to accurately measure your tongue weight but other methods are outlined in the linked article. The...

  • Clarification of the Weight Capacity for the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211
  • The weight capacity for the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211 that you referenced would be for 500 lbs of tongue weight. Tongue weight is the amount of vertical force that is pushing down on the ball of your trailer while towing, not to be confused with total trailer weight which is what you are confusing it with I believe. If your trailer weighs 2,500 lbs the tongue weight would most likely be between 250 lbs and 375 lbs so this would have the capacity for your trailer. For further...

  • Hand Cranking Speeds for Trailer Valet 2-Speed Swivel Jack # STC-V211
  • For the 2-speed Trailer Valet Swivel Jack # STC-V211 the two different cranking speeds have 14-to-1 and 5-to-1 gear ratios. This means that in low gear 14 cranks equal one tire rotation; in high gear 5 cranks equal one tire rotation. At right you will find a link to a video showing the operation of the crank and also of the emergency brake lever. The Trailer Valet will fit trailer frames up to 2-3/4-inches wide x 6-inches tall and it installs using included clamps and hardware.

  • Total Height of the Stromberg Carlson Trailer Jack JET-3500 When Extended Bracket to Foot
  • The lifting height the # JET-3500 is capable of is 18 inches. When the jack is fully retracted it is 10-3/8 from jack foot to bottom of mounting bracket. So when it is fully extended it would be 28-3/8 inches from the jack foot to the bottom of the mounting bracket. Since you need 26 inches this would work well.

  • Is Replacement Screw Available For Bulldog 10,000 Lb 5Th Wheel Landing Gear Jack
  • I spoke with my contact at Bulldog about the Bulldog electric Landing Gear Jack, part # BD500161. They told me that the screw drive on your landing gear is installed in a different manner than most other landing gear jacks. It is crimped in place and cannot be replaced without damaging the leg itself. If you decide to replace the landing gear you have installed I recommend the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set, part # UF17-943010. This landing gear has a 12,000 lb lift...

  • Does the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set # UF17-943010 Come with Switches
  • The Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set # UF17-943010 that you referenced does include switches for either jack leg, but they aren't flush mounted switches. The switches are black and square in appearance and typically get mounted under the overhang of a trailer. See picture.

  • 5th Wheel Landing Gear Motor Operates But No Lift on Jacks
  • It sounds like the internal screw mechanism in your landing gear is damaged. This would explain why the motor works but still no lift and why with gravity's help it will lower only. When it comes to jacks, winches and landing gear we suggest choosing an item with more capacity than you actually need. Using an over-spec jack means it has to work less hard to do the job and may potentially last longer since it is not being operated near its maximum limit. We do offer a range of powered...

  • Replacement 5th Wheel Landing Gear for 2006 Weekend Warrior 35-Foot 5th Wheel
  • When it comes to jacks, winches or landing gear we suggest choosing a product with more lifting capacity than you need. In the case of 5th wheel landing gear the extra capacity means the jacks will have to work less hard to do their lifting and may have a longer working lifespan as a result of not being operated near their limit. The Ultra-Fab landing gear you referenced, part # UF17-943010, have a high 12K lift rating, a 38-inch lift height and a travel rate of 15 seconds per inch....

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation with Rubber Wheels for Manueverability
  • All of the jacks we sell that have wheel casters like the part # DL22800 that you referenced will have a hard plastic like wheel except for the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211. This has rubber wheels and a crank that allows you to roll the wheels of the jack and your trailer to easily maneuver it. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Will the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 Still Function in Cold Weather
  • The Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 that you referenced has never been tested to see what would be the coldest temperature that it would still function. If other standard electrical components are still functioning on your trailer I would imagine this jack would work just fine as well. If you are in a climate that requires specially rated electrical components for extreme cold weather I would imagine this jack would not function at it's potential.

  • Will Trailer Valet work on the 2015 Venture Sonic 170VBH Travel Trailer
  • Capacity-wise the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 that you referenced would work well for you since it has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity and your tongue weight is 325 lbs. The bracket takes up 8 inches of real estate on the trailer frame. If you can find an 8 inch long section on the frame of the trailer near the coupler this would work well for you. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Powered Trailer Jack Recommendation for Skyline Koala 24RBK Travel Trailer
  • According to my research, the GVWR of the 24RBK is almost 6000 lbs, which means that in the worst-case scenario the tongue weight would be just under 900 lbs. When you're choosing a powered jack, I'm a firm believer in overkill. Choosing a jack with a much higher capacity than you actually need means that the jack won't have to work so hard and should operate more reliably in the long run. The Bulldog # BD500187 would be an excellent choice. The jack has a 3500 lb capacity, which is...

  • Replacement Motor Recommendation For Atwood RV Landing Gear

The replacement motor kit that would work for the landing gear is part # AT75367. This is the 12-volt motor. The Replacement Gear Box Assembly you would need for the motot is part # 75054SP.

  • Recommended Replacement A-Frame Tongue Jack for 4500 lb Utility Trailer
  • Sorry to hear about your jack. I'd be happy to make a recommendation. Since a trailer's tongue weight is generally 10-15 percent of its total weight, you'll be in the 450-675 lb tongue weight range. We have jacks with tongue weight capacities starting at 750 lbs, but I always recommend going with a heavier capacity than you need. The jack (and you) won't need to work so hard to raise the trailer, and it will therefore last longer. The Bulldog # 2000 lb capacity A-Frame Jack, part # BD155033...

  • Selecting a Replacement Swivel Jack for a Venture Boat Trailer
  • Thank you for submitting a photo of your boat and trailer showing the trailer's bolt-on Fulton side-wind caster wheel swivel jack which you want to replace. When it comes to jacks - or for that matter to hitches - extra capacity is always a good thing. Since the incremental cost to go from a 1000-lb-rated jack to a 1600-lb-rated one is so small, it just makes sense to select a jack with more capacity than you need. This will help the jack last longer and make cranking it easier. The...

I attached a review video for this jack for you to check out as well.

I checked the dimensions of many of these and based on the photo I have linked, the Stromberg Carlson # JET-2500 appears to require the least space to the rear - about 1-inch. I added various other dimensions to the photo to assist you in evaluating it for your application.

  • Troubleshooting Gear Problem with Landing Gear on 2006 Holiday Rambler Toy Hauler
  • My recommendation would be to disconnect the motor and gearbox, as well as the strut that connects the two drives. Try to manually actuate each jack to see if they'll operate manually. Depending on the manufacturer of the landing gear, there might be replacement gears or the jacks might be individually replaceable. 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...

  • I looked up some pictures of your trailer and it looks like the style of jack that came on your trailer is an A-frame style jack like part # PSRV20000103. This would be a great jack to use as a replacement as it should replace what you currently have and has plenty of capacity. I feel confident recommending this jack because of how many positive reviews it has as well. You may also be interested in a wheel caster part # PS1400750340 but should note that it would reduce the capacity...

  • Replacement Atwood Motor on 5th Wheel Jacks
  • Sounds like you have tried manually operating the jacks and they work fine, so the jacks are not the problem. The gearbox is in good working order too. That leaves the motor. An optional motor can be added to this jack, part # LG-142178, but note this reduces the jack capacity to 5000 lbs.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Landing Gear Jacks that are Binding
  • Have you tried manually operating the jacks? If they'll operate manually, you can rule out the jacks themselves as being the problem. Since it seems the motor will operate reliably independently of the jacks, I believe you can rule the motor out as well. This would leave the gearbox as the only remaining component that could be faulty. If your landing gear was manufactured by Atwood, you'd need the # 75054SP replacement gearbox.

  • Mounting Orientation of Atwood # AT82301 Stabilizer Jack
  • According to Atwood, there many possible ways to mount their stabilizer jack. Mounting them in the orientation shown the diagram would tend to work a bit better to stabilize the trailer against side to side movement, while having the jacks parallel to the trailer frame members would do a better job stabilizing against fore/aft movement. However, mounting them as shown in the diagram would be pretty effective against movement both ways from normal movement in the trailer. The 'safest'...

  • Replacement Trailer Jack for 10 Foot Moritz Dump Trailer
  • The Bulldog # BD182701 that you chose would likely work well for you, but I have a feeling the jack has WAY more capacity than you need. The capacity of the jack only needs to exceed the fully loaded tongue weight of the trailer, not the GTW gross trailer weight, which is the total weight of the trailer plus its contents. I don't know the GTW of your trailer, but from what I saw online, think you could probably get by with a smaller capacity jack. The Bulldog # BD182701 jack doesn't include...

  • Ultra Fab Landing Gear Recommendation for a 2006 Weekend Warrior CL4005

It's hard to say whether or not these will match up to the mounting tabs on your trailer since I do not know what you currently have. If not, a qualified welder would make quick work of moving the mounting tabs. To see where the mounting clamps are check out the picture I attached.

  • Why Can't I Get a Fulton F2 Jack to Rotate Into the Vertical Position, Trailer Seems too Low
  • Your trailer must be sitting pretty low if you can't get the Fulton F2 Swing-Up Trailer Jack # F1413060334 to lock in the vertical position. Before you try to raise the mount of the jack you want to make sure you are using a ball mount that allows the nose of your trailer to sit at the proper height. You want your trailer to sit as level as possible. To do that you need to select the correct ball mount that will give it the rise/drop it needs. I attached an FAQ article to the right that...

However, this Fulton jack comes with a mount should you need it and a professional welder could weld it onto your trailer for a nominal fee.

  • Can the Andersen Camper Leveler be Used on a Triple Axle 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Because of the travel of the suspension on a trailer, using just one leveler, # AM3604, would not provide enough lift in most circumstances. It would be difficult to use more than one per side on a triple axle trailer so I recommend going with a different type of leveler. Take a look at the Lynx Levelers, # 77433. These 10 levelers can be stacked as needed and the space between tires of multiple axle trailers should not be an issue. With a triple axle trailer though a 10-pack may not...

However we do offer a range of jacks that have caster wheels, both A-frame and side-mount types, and these can be viewed by clicking on the link to your right.

Or you could remove the block adapter of the Andersen and use the # HT5203, but I think the # UF19-950400 would be a better option.

Another option that uses a different mount system is the part # BD151443, this jack is a top wind that will allow you to use a wheel caster like part # BDCP555.

I am assuming you are looking for stabilizers for your RV, which the # UF39-941705 would do a great job so I would recommend them for you as long as your RV frames is between 48-80 inches in width. These also have a 6,000 lb capacity.

If there is not a separate battery on your trailer, you could power the jack from the 12 volt power source in your 7-pin trailer connector. Here is how you would wire it to your 7-pin connector: On the 7-pin connector that is on your tow vehicle there should be a red or black wire that...
