Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Can Leveling Scissor Jack Set # JSC-30 be Mounted to Trailer Hitch on 2009 Icon Motorhome
  • The Leveling Scissor Jack Set, # JSC-30, is designed to be bolted or welded to a flat surface on the bottoms of the RV frame rails. As for whether a hitch can support the weight or force if the scissor jack was used in that location, the hitch manufacturers do not test their hitches for this so the answer is unknown. Even if we could be assured that the hitch could support the weight, I do not think that you would be happy with the end result. Mounting the jacks to the hitch would...

  • How Is Stabil-Step Stabilizer Jack for Step Assembly Height Adjusted
  • The Stabil-Step Stabilizer Jack for Step Assembly, part # JSS-7 adjusts by turning the plate to achieve the right height you need. I have attached a photo of the stabilizer that shows the threaded inner leg you can take a look at. This stabilizer adjusts from 8 inches when retracted to 13-1/2 inches when fully extended. The square plates measure 4 x 4 inches. and this has a weight capacity of 750 lbs.

  • Does Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 Have Enough Capacity for Use with WD System
  • When it comes to jacks (and winches for that matter) we like to say that you can't have too much overkill. Higher capacity than what you actually need tends to improve the working lifespan of such products because they won't have to work nearly as hard. Its always a good idea to select a higher-capacity device and run it conservatively, well within its "comfort zone". The Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 will be fine if your trailer's fully-loaded tongue weight (TW) is around...

  • Leveler Recommendation for a Motorhome with Dual Wheel Axle
  • You would only need one set of the Andersen Camper Leveler, part # AM3604 for your motorhome. You would need to use this on the outside set of wheels on your motorhome that needs to be raised up to level the trailer. Check out the install video I attached for more info.

  • Mounting Bracket Dimensions For Lippert 24 Inch Stabilizer Scissor Jack
  • The mounting brackets for the scissor jacks we offer do vary. I went to the warehouse and took some measurements of the Lippert Components 24 inch Scissor Jack, part # LC285325. I have attached a photo of the mounting brackets with the dimensions shown. This scissor jack measures 4-5/16 inches tall when fully retracted and 28-5/16 inches when extended. The jack measures 26-13/16 inches long when retracted. I have attached a link to our product page for the scissor jacks we offer.

  • Horse Trailer Landing Gear Jack Recommendation
  • Since your trailer weighs a total of 10,400 lbs the Pro Series Square Jack # PS1400950376 that you referenced would work well since it has a lifting capacity of 10,000 lbs. Since the jack does not lift the entire weight of the trailer this would be more than enough for you. This also has a spring return feature built into the foot of the jack like you said you wanted as well.

  • Way to Allow Truck Tailgate to Clear Powered A-Frame Jack
  • If when your trailer is hitched up to your truck and you lower the tailgate it ends up extending over the mounting hole for your jack you aren't going to be able to fit a powered jack underneath that. Most powered jacks will extend around 2 feet above the jack mounting point for the trailer. When your tailgate is down it is going to interfere with one. Going with a longer ball mount can move the trailer out further away from the truck which would give you additional clearance. What you...

  • Do Powered Trailer Levelers Lower at the Same Height
  • Without knowing what brand or style power levelers you have on your trailer it's pretty hard for me to say for certain if what your trailer is doing is normal. If it's a single motor setup the legs should travel up and down at an equal height. There could be a broken bevel gear or motor if this is the case. If its a dual motor setup you would be able to select which side you want to go up or down. This would be ideal or uneven terrain so it is possible for one side to travel further...

  • Options for Moving Around a Trailer with Dry Weight of 2,900 Pounds and 400 Pounds Tongue Weight
  • As long as the tongue weight of the trailer does not exceed 500 pounds with the trailer loaded and ready to tow and the frame has space for the jack then the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 is a great option. The other option is to use a trailer dolly, # MT70225, which has a 600 pound tongue weight capacity. With it, besides the tongue weight capacity limit, you are only limited to the amount of trailer weight you can move around.

  • Best A-Frame Powered Jack Recommendation
  • For a powered jack for an A-frame trailer I like the Husky Brute part # HT87247. This jack would have more than enough capacity for your trailer as it has a 4,500 lb lifting capacity. This jack also use a ball bearing style of screw so that it operates smoother and quicker than most. It also features an automatic stop so that it won't over-extend and damage the threads of the jack. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack Will Retract but Won't Extend
  • The problem you describe sounds like the gears in the motor have some teeth that have broken. This is caused from over extending/retracting the jack. The motor can retract the jack foot because when it's retracting, the jack isn't under load. There aren't any user replaceable parts in an A-Frame trailer jack like the # JET-3500 you referred to, so your best bet would be to replace the jack. I'd recommend your Father-in-Law go with the highest capacity jack available. Overkill is...

This drop leg jack is also made for A-frame trailers and has a 17 inch lift -and a tongue weight limit of 4,000 lbs so it should work great for your application.

  • Weight Capacity of the Lynx Levelers for Trailers
  • I spoke with my contact at Coast and he informed me that the Lynx Levelers like part # 77433 that you referenced have a 20k capacity (per stack), when stacked no more than 5 high. So basically they could be used on a trailer that weighs 40k as long as they weren't stacked more than 5 high. Long story short, these would have more than enough capacity for you.

  • Will Lippert 3.0 Ground Control Leveling System Fit a 2012 Keystone Laredo 5th Wheel Trailer
  • According to the service manual for the Lipper Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590 the rear jack mounts attach to the sides of the frame. So as long as the mounts are attached to the opposite side of the frame rails where there is clearance that slide shaft should not be an issue!

  • Lightest Available Electric Jack with 18 Inch Lift and 3000 lb Capacity
  • The Ultra-Fab # UF38-944017 meets all the criteria you mentioned. It has a 3500 lb capacity, is black in color, has an 18 inch lift and has a shipping weight of 21.07 lbs. When the weight of the packaging is subtracted, the jack weighs about 18 lbs. Although it's a few pounds heavier and costs a bit more, a 4000 lb capacity model is available as part # UF38-944016. The extra capacity would mean that your jack won't need to work as hard, which would extend the life of the jack. The...

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack with Wireless Remote
  • The Pro Series powered A-frame jack # PS500198 you referenced is best suited for A-frame bumper pull trailers and commonly used on travel trailers, horse trailers and enclosed trailers. So I would not recommend it for a fifth wheel trailer, even if you got two of them. I am not sure how you plan on using an A-frame jack with a fifth wheel trailer, but if you want one with a wireless remote, we offer the Husky Brute electric trailer jack with wireless remote # HT87641.

  • The Andersen Camper Leveler # AM3604, which is sold as a set of one leveler and one chock, will work on your tandem axle trailer even if the gap between the tires is only 2-1/2-inches. If you refer to the linked video and photo you'll see that the leveler does not need to fit vertically between your two closely-spaced tires to work properly as a leveling device. In fact the two pieces, the leveler and chock, can be used together in another configuration to allow both sides of a tire...

  • Is the Domar Trailer Stabilizer Jack # TJ01RT to be Installed Facing Forward or Backward
  • The Domar Trailer Stabilizer Jack # TJ01RT will ideally be installed as indicated in the Expert Question response you referenced, which is to say that the leg should fold down swinging toward the front of the trailer. The particular application shown in the installation video is indeed contrary to this but that was the preference for that particular customer. The reason for installing it so that it folds up toward the rear is for safety concerns, to prevent it from allowing the jack...

As long as your fenders are taller than 6 inches off the ground there would be no way it would interfere with this.

  • What is the Overall Capacity of Bulldog 5th Wheel Trailer Landing Gear Set 500161
  • The combined lift and support capacity of the Bulldog landing gear set # BD500161 is 10,000 pounds. Each leg is rated for 5,000 pounds in this system. Landing gear is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight, not to support the full gross weight 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. The landing gear set up is the same on many 5th wheel trailers...

There is no bolt-on jack made for a round tube trailer frame since this would make securing the jack rather difficult; it would want to rotate around the frame tube whenever it was under load. You will need to have some steel material welded to your frame to allow jack installation. You can use a pipe-mount type like Pro Series # PS1401060303 which includes the weld-on pipe section. The...

For a jack that is basically identical you would want the Pro Series Jack part # PSEA20000103. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well. From the top of the jack to the bottom of the mounting bracket this jack measures 11 inches. From the bracket to the bottom of the jack when fully extended it is 22 inches, fully retracted 8 inches.

I went out to the warehouse and pulled Bulldog trailer jack # BD151443 and the measurement from the plate where it swivels to the jack tube is 0.86 inches. This is in between 13/16 and 7/8 of an inch so greater than the 5/8 of an inch you need!

  • Using Ultra-Fab # UF19-950500 To Support Pin Weight of 14K Fifth Wheel
  • The Ultra-Fab # UF19-950500 stabilizer is meant to supplement the landing gear of your fifth wheel, it's not meant to support the pin weight of the fifth wheel on its own. Your best bet would be to find somebody who has a truck equipped with a hitch, and use the truck to support the fifth wheel as you make the level adjustments.

  • Switch on Husky Brute Electric Jack Clicks But Does Not Extend or Retract Jack Leg

This jack features an automatic stop that prevents damage caused by hard stops and excessive pressure. In such cases the motor is shut down before the nut reaches the end of the shaft.

This jack grounds through the mounting hardware so it would need to be mounted to a trailer that has a solid ground through the frame. The trailer wiring harness of the trailer should have a wire that runs to the trailers frame. This is the ground circuit and it will need to be active for the jack to operate.

The highest capacity A-frame mount powered jack we have is going to be 4,500 pounds, # HT87247, for the Husky Brute. Going with a higher capacity will make it easier on the jack which will help it to last longer.

  • Jack Recommendation for a Vacuum Trailer with Limited Clearance

This system is designed to be bolted on with no welding required. The rear jacks will fit 8, 10, or 12 inch frames right out of the box. If your trailer has a 6 inch frame you would need to add bracket kit # LC358597. I have linked a video demo of this system for you to view.

  • Tailgate on 2013 Ford F-150 Makes Contact with A-Frame Electric Trailer Jack
  • Stromberg Carlson has vinyl cover # JET-01 for trailer jack # JET-3500. But You might be better off using a longer ball mount so that the trailer is a little further away from the truck.

The longest ball mounts we have, # 80232 and # 80233 measure 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. But they are only rated for 6,000 pounds.

  • How to Tow a Boat Trailer and Carry a Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • I have a solution that would work for you and allow you to use both the Curt # D210 and the Thule Bike Rack part # TH956, but most likely your jack is going to interfere with bikes on the rack. It sounds like your jack does not swivel at all. What I would recommend you do is replace your trailer jack with one that does swivel like part # FTJ12000101 so that when not in use the jack can be folded down and out of the way so that your bikes can fit on the rack.

  • How to Determine if Trailer Jack Has Available Wheel or Caster
  • It would depend on which jack you're speaking of. The casters used on trailer jacks usually have a fairly low weight capacity, usually limited to 1500 lbs or so. The caster can limit the weight capacity of the jack if its capacity is lower than that of the jack. For instance, the Pro Series A-frame jack # PSEA20000103 has a 2000 lb capacity, but if you add the # PS1400750340 caster to it, the capacity will be lowered to the capacity of the caster. Generally speaking, if a jack we sell...
