Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Installing Stromberg Carlson # JET-3755 Powered Trailer Jack on 7200 lb Capacity Landscape Trailer
  • The tongue weight of a given trailer is generally 10-15 percent of its loaded weight. This means that if filled to absolute capacity, the worst case scenario tongue weight of your trailer would be just shy of 1100 lbs, which is well under the capacity of the # JET-3755. The power cord would attach to the positive battery terminal of a trailer mounted battery. The powered jack will pick up its ground connection by being in direct contact with the trailer frame.

  • Do MaxxTow Trailer Jack # MT70149 & Fulton Trailer Jack # FTJ12000101 Fit 1-1/2-Inch x 4-Inch Frame
  • Both of the bolt-on trailer jacks you referenced, MaxxTow Trailer Jack # MT70149 and Fulton Trailer Jack # FTJ12000101, fit a range of trailer frame sizes. Either one will fit your trailer frame that measures 1-1/2- x 4-inches. The MaxxTow carries higher lift capacity - 1500-lbs versus 1200-lbs for the Fulton, but the Fulton has a 3-year warranty. Videos for both are linked for your review.

  • Can Ultra Fab Stabilizer Jacks Be Installed on the Front and Back of a Camper
  • The Ultra Fab Stabilizer Jack set # uf39-941705 that you referenced can be installed on the front and the back of a non-motorized RV, but if it's a motorhome they only recommend that they get used at the rear of the vehicle. I attached the demo video you referenced as well.

  • Fit of Fulton # FTJ12000101 Snap-Ring Swivel Jack with Bulldog Mount on Mastercraft Boat Trailer
  • When I measured the inside diameter of the hole that the mount tube passes through and the outside diameter of the tube that passes through the hole on the bracket, I got right about the same measurements you did. The inside diameter of the hole in the Fulton # FTJ12000101 is right about 2.54 inches and the outside diameter of the tube on the mount was 2.48 inches, so the Fulton jack you referred to would indeed be compatible with the existing Bulldog snap-ring mount. Bulldog and...

  • Dimensions of the Atwood Performance Series Power Jack with Robofoot
  • I went to our warehouse to measure the Atwood power jack # AT81067 to better determine if you will have enough clearance to lower your tailgate on your 2011 Toyota Tundra 4x4. From the mounting plate to the bottom of the motor is 14-inches. From the outer tube to the furthest edge on the front of the motor is 2-1/4 inches. See the diagram I included. I included a video review for you too.

  • What is the Mounting Hold Spacing for Dutton Lainson 1500 Pound Swivel Trailer Jack
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Dutton Lainson trailer jack # DL22800 to take the measurements for you. The 3 holes closest together are 1 inch apart on center. From the third hole to the furthest away hole is 2-1/2 inches. Side to side the holes are 5-1/2 inches apart on center. The hole diameters are all 0.39 inches for use with 3/8 inch hardware.

  • Will Bulldog Trailer Jack Wheel Fit an Atwood 1,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • First, the A-frame mounting pattern for a jack is an industry standard. As long as the hole for the jack is 2 inches jack # AT80009 will fit. Wheel # BDCP555 should fit the jack just fine. The inner diameter of the opening is 2 inches. The lower leg on the jack is 1-3/4 inches so the leg will fit inside the cavity on the caster. Even though the wheel is rated for 1,500 pounds you will still need to go by the 1,000 pound capacity of the jack.

  • How Does the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 Wire to a 7-Way
  • The Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 that you referenced only has one wire that runs from it, the power wire. This wire would need to get run to the 12 volt accessory circuit of the 7-way on your trailer's wiring. The jack grounds through the mounting hardware of it so you would not have to run a ground wire. If you only have a 4-way on your trailer you will need to upgrade that to a 7-way like the part # HM20048. I attached a wiring diagram that shows how the 7-way would...

  • What is the Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of Trailer Valet Jack and Trailer Mover
  • The Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, like you said is rated for 500 pounds tongue weight. It is the overall tongue weight capacity rating of the entire unit and there isn't a way to increase it. Currently this is the only model they make. You could potentially lower the trailer tongue weight by moving some weight towards the back of the trailer, if at all possible. The other option I have is a trailer dolly, # MT70225, rated for 600 pounds tongue weight. It is currently the highest capacity...

  • Total Extended Length of Atwood # AT82297 Stabilizer Jack
  • The fully extended length of the Atwood # AT82297 would be 21-3/4 inches, which represents the 'A' Dimension in your photo. The 'B' dimension would simply be the height above the ground of the underside of your trailer when its level. The Atwood stabilizer jack is meant to hold up or stabilize the trailer, not lift it up off the ground.

  • Can Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Leveling Kit # LC358590 Be Installed on Montana High Country 305 RL
  • Lippert Components' bolt-on 4-jack automatic leveling kit # LC358590 is an advanced general-application system for use on most 5th wheels, including your Keystone Montana High Country 305 RL. Chances are 90-95-percent that the frame of your 5h wheel was made by Lippert, so the compatibility of this system with your trailer is virtually a sure thing. I do not have any confirmed data for how many of these system have been installed on trailers in the Montana series. This system offers...

  • Your 5th wheel trailer is on the large side at about 40 feet long and 8-1/2 feet wide with some slide-outs. The 4 point system # LC358590 would work well and give you stability that you are looking for, especially side to side stability. I think that you will be very happy with the added stability and amount of control the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System will provide. If the trailer has a 6 inch tall frame then you would need mounting brackets # LC358597...

  • Do Trailer Stabilizer Jacks Have to Be Permanently Mounted

  • Clearance Required for Atwood Electric Trailer Jack with Robo Foot
  • When fully retracted with the Robo Foot down it will measure 22-7/8 inches from where the jack mounts to the trailer to the bottom of the foot so you would need at least that much space to operate the Robo Foot from its up to down position on jack # AT81067. You might want to consider a jack with a drop leg like # 81201. It will be a little over 9 inches from where it mounts to the bottom of the foot when the jack and drop leg are fully retracted. I have linked video reviews of both...

  • Would the Bulldog Landing Gear # BD500162 Install on a Franklin Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • Some landing gear sets are interchangeable, but due to the differences in where the weld stops are on some trailer some sets can bolt directly on and others may require modifications to those brackets for a new set to install. Even if the # BD500162 would not bolt directly to your trailer a qualified welder would have no problem moving the weld stops of your trailer so that the set would work on your trailer. This set has a lifting capacity of 8,000 lbs, you may be able to find a...

  • Will Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear Fit Trailer With Existing Weld Stops
  • To make sure the Bulldog Electric Fifth Wheel Landing Gear, # BD500161 will fit your trailer you will need to take a measurement. The # BD500161 requires the upper clamp on the landing gear leg to sit on top of the upper weld stop and the lower clamp sits below the bottom weld stop. In order for this landing gear to fit the distance between the bottom of the upper clamp and the top of the lower clamp needs to be 17-1/2 inches. I have attached a drawing with the dimensions and clamp...

  • If you have 17-1/2 inches between the inside of the frame clamps on your current landing gear setup (or 17-1/2 inches from outside to outside of the weld stops on your trailer) the Bulldog Landing Gear Set part # BD500161 would fit without having to weld new stops on your trailer.

  • What is the Adjustment Range for Stabil-Step Stabilizer Jack for Step Assembly JSS-7

  • Weight Capacity of the Ultra-Fab Rear Electric Stabilizer # UF39-941602
  • The weight capacity for the Ultra-Fab Rear Electric Stabilizer # UF39-941602 is 3,200 lbs. We also have # UF39-941705 which has dual motors allowing you to level each side independently. It has a 6,000 pound capacity. These aren't designed to lift the entire weight of a trailer so you wouldn't pick out one based on the weight of your trailer as a whole compared to the weight capacity for the stabilizers. Either one of the two that I mentioned should work well for you.

  • Recommended Distance Between Weld Stops for Installation of Ultra Fab Landing Gear
  • Since the Ultra Fab Landing Gear Set part # UF17-943010 that you referenced calls for 19-1/8 inches from the top of both of the weld stops and your setup currently has a distance of 19-1/2 inches you would have to move your current weld stops so that they match what the landing gear calls for. A qualified welder would have no problem making this modification.

  • The Ground Control 3.0 System part # LC358590 would work great on your 2004 Hitch Hiker 34 ft. travel trailer. The 2 landing gear jacks mount to existing points on your RV and secure with included hardware. The 2 rear jacks come with mounting brackets that bolt onto 8", 10", or 12" I-beam frames with included hardware. If you have a 6 inch I-beam frame you will also need the bracket part # LC358597. You would not want to use this system to jack the trailer completely off of the...

  • Troubleshooting an Electric Jack that Won't Work Unless It is The Only Circuit Drawing Power
  • Without knowing exactly what your electric hitch is I am pretty sure the problem you are experiencing is due to the circuit being overdrawn. It sounds like when you power both the electric hitch and your electric jack the power circuit is being asked to draw more than it is capable of and the jack is not able to function until you reduce the draw on the circuit. Otherwise you can check to make sure the jack is grounding properly.

  • Replacement Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack for a 9,000 Pound Dutchman Travel Trailer
  • A 9,000 pound trailer should have a tongue weight of 900 to 1,350 pounds, maybe a little more, so any jack that has a capacity higher than the tongue weight would work. But the higher the capacity of the jack the easier it will be for it to lift the trailer and the longer it will last. That is why I recommend going with the Husky Brute, # HT87247. It is rated for 4,500 pounds and has 18 inches of lift. And with this jack it will shut off before it can over extend which can damage a regular...

  • Is Welding Necessary to Install Ultra-Fab # UF17-943010 Landing Gear on Montana Big Sky 5th Wheel
  • Landing gear like the # UF17-943010 bolt into brackets that are welded to the frame of the fifth wheel. If the brackets from the existing landing gear can accommodate the 2-1/2 x 2-1/2 housing of the landing gear, and the existing brackets are in good condition, you can reuse them. If you do not have existing brackets, there's no way around it, the brackets included with the Ultra-Fab landing gear will need to be welded into place. They cannot be bolted, because the bolt heads would...

That label was used on two different trailer jacks with a 1250 lb weight capacity, sidewind jack # 6814 and topwind jack # 6817. The closest sidewind jack we have would be the Dutton Lainson part # DL22320.

Since the WD system cannot be re-positioned (there is only one right way to install it) you will need to find a way to create space for the jack to mount. If there is simply no room for it, you may need to have a new steel crosspiece welded to the frame to create a mounting point for...

  • By itself the Ultra-Fab 5th Wheel King Pin Tripod Stabilizer # UF19-950001 that you referenced has a range of 42 to 50 inches. Since you would require 52 inches to sit level you would also need the extension legs part # UF19-950002. This will add 8 inches to the setup, but will still allow the setup to have 8 inches of adjustment. So basically it will now be adjustable from 50 inches to 58 inches.

  • Installing Trailer Valet # STC-V211 on Trailer Frame that is Too Narrow for Supplied Hardware

  • Most trailer jacks like the Pro Series Square Jack with Footplate # PS1401600383 that you referenced will take right at around 5 cranks to travel 1 inch. Since this jack has 15 inches of lift that it is capable of that would mean it would take 75 cranks to go the full travel of the jack.

  • Would the Pro Series Round, A-Frame Jack # PSEA20000103 fit a 3-1/4 inch Bolt Pattern on Trailer
  • The standard bolt pattern for a-frame jacks is 3 on 3 inch. However, if you look at the mounting flange of the Pro Series Round, A-Frame Jack # PSEA20000103 you will see that the mounting holes are slotted and allow for a bit of wiggle room there. An extra 1/4 inch wouldn't be a problem at all. This jack would work well for you, it has a 2,000 lb capacity so it would work well on your trailer.

  • Troubleshooting a Frozen Screw Shaft in a Fulton F2 Jack
  • I spoke to my contact at Fulton and he informed me that they don't sell replacement screws for the Fulton F2 jacks like the # F1413100334. But he said that what you are doing should free it up. You may have to soak the screw and collar assembly in gear oil for a couple days, but one way or the other it will free up. Once you get it to free up use a good grease like the LMX Red Grease part # L11390 on the threads to prevent this problem from happening again.

  • Can a Manual A-Frame Trailer Jack be Raised and Lowered Using a Power Drill
  • Like you said there are some stabilizer jacks and even some winches that will allow you to attach a drill to raise/lower or reel in legs or line much faster. But there are no A-frame jacks, or any regular trailer tongue jacks, that I have seen that have this type of feature. If manually cranking the handle starts to be a chore the best option is to go with an electric jack. The most cost effective one is Ultra-Fab jack # UF38-944037 rated for 3,500 pounds.

  • How to Prevent a Bulldog Powered 4,000 lb Jack from Damaging Gears Due to Over-Extension
  • I spoke with my contact at Bulldog and he said they do not offer replacement parts to rebuild the gear box for the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack, # BD500186. Typically the gears get damaged due to over extension or retraction. Before installing a new jack, power it up and extend it all the way with no load, back it up a bit and mark the leg. Do the same for the retraction. This way you will have visual marks of when to stop extension or retraction.
