Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Replacement Bulldog Landing Gear Recommendation for Prowler 5th Wheel
  • For a manual crank set of landing gear by Bulldog you would want the part # BD500162 that has an 8k lifting capacity. For a powered set you would want the part # BD500170. I attached a picture that shows the dimensions of the legs of the jacks for you to compare to what you have on your trailer. The Bulldog stuff works great and typically fits as a replacement for most landing gear sets on trailers. The dimension picture shows the powered jacks, but the important measurements apply to...

  • Stabilizer Jack Recommendation for a Aspen Classic Camper
  • The stabilizer jacks that are in the picture of the trailer that you have are the same thing as the Atwood Stabilizer Jack part # AT82297. Nearly all stabilizer jacks are made to the same dimensions. The retracted height of the jack is 15-1/2 inches and the extended height is 21-3/4 inches.

  • Bolt-on Swivel Trailer Jack Recommendation
  • It sounds like you only want to use the mounting bracket from the Trailer Valet # STC-V211. But there are swivel jacks that you could use that would not require having to buy two jacks such as # PSEJ10000101 or # F1413230134. I have included a link to the jacks I think would be a better option.

  • Which Side Is The Lead Leg For The Landing Gear On 2008 Montana Trailer
  • The lead leg of a landing gear for a trailer is typically on the driver's side of the trailer, so it would be on the left side when looking at the trailer from the rear. The easiest way to tell is to open the access door for the landing gear and see which gear has the motor or gear box attached at the top of the landing gear. check out the attached photo that shows what the lead leg would look like for a manual landing gear system like part # LG-183708. For a landing gear system...

  • A-Frame Trailer Jack Recommendation for a 10,000 lb Trailer
  • A trailer that weighs 10,000 lbs would have a tongue weight of anywhere from 1,000 lbs to 1,500 lbs. The Bulldog Jack part # BD1750290301 that you referenced has a 5k capacity and would be more than enough. For a footplate to go with this jack you would want part # BD018564 or for a wheel caster part # BDCP555.

  • Troubleshooting Venture Landing Gear Follower Leg that Stopped Working

  • What Size Battery Should be Used to Power an Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • The 3500 pound Ultra-Fab A-frame jacks such as # UF38-944037 have a 25 amp circuit breaker to handle the draw of the motor so the battery will need to be rated at least that high which usually isn't a problem for 12 volt car batteries. The slow blow fuse is actually a 30 amp. A breakaway battery will not be sufficient since the amp hour rating is too low. You really need an actual car battery.

  • Replacement Parts for Bulldog Square Jack
  • The replacement parts we have for the Bulldog Square Jack # BD182500 are a Replacement Gear Kit # BD500212 and a Replacement Screw and Nut Kit # BD500217. These are the two most likely aspects of the jack to be causing your problem. I have attached the only two diagrams we have related to this trailer jack. The inner tube is held to the outer tube by the screw and nut assembly.

  • Can 7-Way Operate Powered Trailer Tongue Jack if Trailer Battery is Dead
  • A powered trailer tongue jack like the Stromberg Carlson Camper Jack # JET-3500 is best wired to a dedicated battery on the trailer. If the battery is dead then the trailer's 7-way connector won't be able to deliver enough current to operate the jack. A 7-way 12V circuit is intended to deliver a small maintenance charge to a trailer battery that is in good shape or to pass enough juice for a camper dome light for example, but not to power a trailer jack. The vehicle's 12V feed on the 7-way...

  • Replacement Jack Recommendation for Replacing Shelby 5764A Jack
  • Your Shelby jack that you are looking to replace has a 1,200 lb capacity. The MaxxTow Jack part # MT70149 would be a great replacement jack that has even more capacity at 1,500 lbs. I attached a review video for this jack for you to check out as well.

  • Can a Powered A-Frame Jack Use Trailer Wiring 7-Way as Power Source
  • As long as the 7-way on your 2011 Toyota Tundra has the 12 volt circuit active and you wire the # BD500185 to the 12 volt circuit on your trailer 7-way (the 9:00 pin), the jack would work. It's typically preferred to power the jack off of a battery, but this method will work as well.

  • Will Trailer Valet Handle be Able to Turn on Boat Trailer
  • You would have to mount the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 as far forward on the trailer tongue to be able to turn the jack handle without hitting the boat. Since the trailer valet sticks out further than a traditional jack you should not have a problem.

  • Recommended Replacement Motor For Landing Gear With Atwood 75721
  • It sounds like the clutch in the motor may be failing on your Atwood landing gear. It may be slipping which is causing the clicking sound. Since you said helping the motor with the manual crank helps the gear box will not be the problem. The replacement motor you need is part # AT75367. This will attach directly to the gear box you have and would be a great fit. I called my contact at Atwood and they told me the legs of the landing gear are what the weight capacity is based off of...

  • Can Stabilizer Jacks be Used to Lift RV a Little
  • To answer the last question first, a stabilizer jack such as # JSC-30 would be used until there was just enough tension to keep the trailer or RV from rocking. For actual lifting you would need a different device. So assuming that the RV was level these stabilizers would help prevent it from rocking back and forth or side to side (depending on where they were mounted) while you move around inside. If you were to try to lift weight with them you would have a very hard time because it...

  • Solution for Powering Landing Gear Jack on a Trailer with Dead Batteries
  • Your husband's idea is the one to go with. Using a jumper cable run power and ground from a good vehicle battery to the wiring of the jack so that you can power them. Without knowing what landing gear you have on your trailer it's pretty hard to know if there is a manual override. Most likely there is, but it's hard to say for sure one way or the other.

  • Husky Brute A-Frame Powered Jack Recommendation for a Pioneer Fleetwood Travel Trailer
  • For a powered electric A-frame jack the Husky Brute part # HT87247 would be an excellent option. This jack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. The warranty is 1-year, not 30 days. The screw of this jack uses bearings that reduce noise and wear and operates more efficiently than standard screw systems. Automatic stop prevents damage to gears as well. Most jacks will let you over extend them and damage the threads. This one does not do that.

  • Landing Gear Jack Recommendations for a Livestock Trailer
  • If you are considering a dual jack setup like the part # BD500162 that's what I would recommend. Two jacks will offer more stability and since two jacks will be doing the lifting instead of one the cranking will be a bit easier as well. The easiest to use setup will be a powered landing gear set though as it would only require you to press a button. For that the Bulldog part # BD500161 would be a great option.

  • Why Would a Powered Trailer Jack Only Work When Connected to Tow Vehicle
  • The Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack # JET-3500 grounds through the mounting bracket of the jack. If your trailer isn't hooked up to your tow vehicle when you are trying to use the jack the problem would be that it isn't grounding properly. If you run the ground of your trailer battery to the trailer frame it should work.

  • Dimensions on Atwood Premier Performance Series Power Jack
  • I called Atwood to try and get these measurements from the Premier Power Jack # AT81069 for you. They were able to tell me that the distance from the mounting plate to the top of the motor box is just over 29-13/16 inches. I was able to go out to our warehouse to measure the distance from the center tube to the rearmost point of the motor box. This distance measured just over 2 inches.

  • Can Shorter Bolts Be Used to Install Trailer Valet
  • You could definitely replace the mounting bolts of the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 with shorter bolts that would fit your trailer. Your best option would be to measure to see how much shorter you would need the bolts to be and then take them with you to the hardware store and pick out a set of nuts/bolts that are the same diameter and the desired length. I would go with at least Grade 5 hardware.

  • Way to Power the Stabilizer Jack JSC-30-IND

  • Recommended Marine Power Jack And Charger For Boat Trailer
  • A marine power jack like part # AT80524 requires a battery that has at lease 10 volts of direct current output to operate. You will want to make sure the battery you plan on using for the jack has at least that much power. The # AT80524 draws from 8 to 45 amps so you want to make sure you have enough battery power. I recommend a battery box like part # DW03189. This is a vented box that measures 17 x 9-3/4 x 10-3/4 inches and includes all of the installation hardware. A 7-way trailer...

  • Recommended Tow Dolly For Jayco Camper Trailer

This attaches to the trailer frame and is used as a jack with a 15 inch lift and a dolly. This has a 2-speed gear box which can make cranking the handle even easier.

  • Landing Gear Recommendations for 12000 lbs Trailer

These jacks will bolt on to the trailer frame and function independently from one another. This helps to level the trailer when on uneven terrain. I have included a link to the installation instructions for your review.

  • Landing Gear Jacks for a Keystone Cougar 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Bulldog square weld-on jack # BD182513 could potentially be used on a 5th wheel trailer but it really is meant for trailers with exposed frames and doesn't have stops on the outer tube for brackets like landing gear jacks have. If you have brackets already then you would just need to weld on some stops to the outer tube and the heights needed. For a tandem, manual landing gear set you could use # BD500162 which is both legs with the stops already on them, brackets, and connecting rod....

  • Why Does Electric Landing Gear on a 5th Wheel Trailer Go Up But Not Down.
  • If the motor is not running when you are trying to retract the landing gear then there is likely a problem with the switch and it will have to be replaced. We might have the switch but I would need to know the model landing gear you have on your trailer. If the motor is running and it will not go down then there is likely a problem with the gear box, gears in the legs, or a problem with the screw and/or nut inside the jack legs that is not letting it go down. Motors and gear boxes can...

Take a look at the Bulldog Rack-and-Gear Jack with Steel Wheel, # BD162300.

  • Replacement A-Frame Jack for 6750 lb Travel Trailer
  • From your description, it sounds like you're needing an A-frame jack. Given the weights you've provided, your trailer likely has a maximum tongue weight of around 1000 lbs. I typically recommend folks go with the heaviest capacity jack they can, this makes for easy operation and long life for the trailer jack because it's only using a percentage of its capacity. The Bulldog # BD1700100317 with its 5000 lb capacity would be a great choice. The bracket to the top of the jack is similar...

Depending on how tall the trailer frame is this may or may not be enough.

If you look at the diagram I have included you will see that they have measured from the top of one to the top of the other and that is 16-1/2 inches. Since the weld stops are 1 inch tall the measurement is 17-1/2 inches just like what you need!

Since it grounds through the mounting hardware the problem is most likely the power wire. You will want to verify that the circuit you ran...

  • Replacement A-Frame Jack Recommendation for a 1992 Pace Enclosed Trailer

The Pro Series A-frame jack part # PSRV20000103 should work well for you as it has a 2,000 lb capacity and 14 inches of lift. For a foot you would want the part # PS1400700340, or for a wheel part # PS1400750340. You should note that using a wheel like this will cut the overall capacity down to 1,200 lbs.

The great part about this jack is that if it doesn't fit the mount you have, it comes with a mount of its own that you could have a professional welded install. This jack is rated for 1,200 pounds. I have linked a video review of this jack for you.

The higher the capacity of the jack the easier it will be for it to operate and the longer the jack will last. That is why I recommend going with a 4,500 pound capacity jack such as the Husky Brute # HT87247. I have included a link to all of the powered A-frame trailer jacks we carry.

  • Can a Trailer Scissor Jack be Used to Lift a Trailer

You can protect the jack from moisture with the part # UF38-944020.

  • The Ultra-Fab Electric Landing Gear you referenced, part # UF17-943010 aren't coach specific, they should fit your 5th wheel if their capacity is sufficient and there's a place to mount them. Both legs combined offer a 12,000 lb capacity. The landing gear is designed to be mounted to the vertical parts of the trailer chassis on a 5th wheel trailer under the overhang. If you have sufficient space, you can attach the brackets to the chassis under the overhang then you can install landing...

  • Recommended Side-Mount Bolt-On Trailer Jack And Removable Caster
  • I recommend the Bulldog Trailer jack, part # BD151443. This is a 2,000 lb jack that has a side-mount designed to fit trailer tongues that measure up to 3 x 4 inches. This jack is a topwind jack and has a 10 inch lift. The height from the ground to the bracket when retracted is 11 inches and 21 inches when the jack is extended. For a removable caster I recommend part # BDCP555. This has a 1,500 lb capacity and will work well with the # BD151443.

  • Recommended Trailer Dolly For 5,700 LB North Trail Trailer
  • The technician you spoke with at the dealership was correct. The Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover, part # STC-V211 is rated for a maximum of 5,000 lbs and a maximum tongue weight of 500 lbs. From the research I did I found your trailer weighs about 5,700 lbs dry weight and has a gross weight capacity of 8,000 lbs. The # STC-V211 would not work for you but we may have a solution that will work. Check out the MaxxTow Trailer Dolly, part # MT70225. This has a 600 lb tongue...

  • Replacement Fuse Holder for Atwood Jack
  • I spoke to my contact at Atwood and they don't offer the part you are looking for, but what you can do is use a fuse holder similar to the part # C58470 and then use a 30 amp fuse to replace the fuse holder of the Atwood 2500 Deluxe jack that you have. The max amp rating for the # C58470 is 10 amps so you would not want to use it, I just used that as a example.

  • Side Mounted Trailer Jack Recommendation for a Trailer for Good Ground Clearance
  • From the pictures I found of your 2016 r-pod 178 trailer it looks like you have an A-frame jack like the part # BD155032 that you referenced. If ground clearance is a problem with this jack one solution you have would be to replace the jack with one that attaches to the side of the trailer frame and can swivel. The Pro Series Jack part # PS1401060303 uses a pipe mount that would get welded to your trailer frame and would allow the jack to swivel up and out of the way when not in use.

  • Choosing a New A-Frame Trailer Jack with 2-1/4-Inch Outer Tube and 2-Inch Inner Tube
  • A-frame jacks usually have 3-point attachment holes on either a round or triangular mounting plate. Examples of each are part # HT87247 from Husky and part # PS1400600303 from Pro Series. These plates are mounted on the jack's larger outer tube, often the 2-1/4-inch diameter you reference. The jack's inner tube will then be a smaller 2-inch diameter. This is a common configuration. All such jacks can be seen using the page link provided for you. You can click on the weight capacity,...

  • What Capacity Should Electric Trailer Jack Have
  • Your question is the reason why I always recommend that folks get a powered jack with a much higher weight capacity that what's actually needed. When not used with weight distribution, a trailer jack only needs to lift the tongue weight of the trailer, which is 10-15 percent of the fully loaded trailer weight. However, if you're wanting to lift the rear of the vehicle as to take the tension out of the system so the spring bars can be installed or removed, going with a high-rated jack like...

  • Should the Tires of the Trailer Valet Bulge When Being Used
  • I found the review you mentioned and it sounds like the guy didn't have the tires of the jack inflated to the 70 psi recommendation. This jack has had a bit of a troubled past with some customers, but it has gone through many revisions and we have found that it works much better and the customers who have bought the jack since have really liked it. This is the only product we carry currently that will power the jack wheel. An electric version of this would be great, but most likely very...

  • Can Domar Stabilizer Jack be Installed on the Bottom of a Plywood Trailer Floor
  • The Domar stabilizer jack # TJ01RT is only meant to stabilize/level a trailer and not lift it. So even though the ideal mounting location would be to a metal surface like the frame, it could be installed like in the video since it would not be supporting enough weight to damage the wood floor of the trailer.

  • Power Wire Gauge on Ultra Fab Powered Trailer Tongue Jack # UF38-944037 and # UF38-944017
  • I checked with my Ultra-Fab representative, and found that the power wire on the # UF38-944037 is the same as that of the # UF38-944017. Both are 10 gauge. Powering a jack off of a trailer mounted battery will work better than using the accessory circuit off the 7-way. The closer a powered accessory (like a tongue jack) is to it's power source, the better it'll operate, due to the fact that the longer the wire run is, the more power you'll lose along the way.

  • Does Pipe-Mount Need to Be Trimmed to Install Pro Series Square Swivel Jack # PS1401520383
  • You do not need to trim off any pipe length when installing a pipe-mount jack like the Pro Series Square Swivel Jack # PS1401520383. The gap between the jack tube and frame will ensure plenty of clearance to swing it up for storage without compromising its strength.

  • Will Stromberg Carlson Landing Gear Set Fit 1995 Cobra Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • You may be able to use the original mounts on your trailer when you install the Stromberg Carlson Landing Gear Set, part # LG-1. The only way to tell is to take a measurement. If you measure the distance between the frame clamps on your trailer you should have 17-1/2 inches from the bottom of the top frame clamp to the top of the bottom frame clamp. I have attached drawing that shows this dimension you can check out. This landing gear set has a 21 inch lift and a capacity of 6,000...

  • Roll Pin Removal of Fulton Jack for Bevel Gear Kit Installation

You will need to use a punch that is smaller than the diameter of the pin and then tap it out using a hammer. Installing the gears is fairly easy, You will need to remove the cap at the top of the jack. The handle and gear are held in place with a roll pin that will need to be removed. You can then remove the handle, square block and gear. You can then remove the bottom gear by lifting it out. If...

  • Replacement Bevel Gear Set Recommendation for a 2007 Prairie Schooner Trailer
  • Your landing gear could definitely be replaced by the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear # LG-1 that you referenced. Based on your description it would be pretty hard to determine what model you have. We do carry an Atwood bevel gear kit that has a 16 and a 12 tooth gear though, part # AT87108. It would seem like you have an older model Atwood setup and this would work for you.

  • Availability of 2000-Lb Side-Pipe-Mount Caster Wheel Sidewind Trailer Jack
  • We do not have an existing jack that meets all of your criteria: side-frame mount, 2000-lb minimum rating, caster wheel, 15-inch lift, side-wind operation and pipe mount. The reason is that a caster wheel on a jack will rarely be rated as high as 2000-lbs. Most caster wheels top out at 1500-lbs. Such wheels do exist, such as the 2000-lb-rated Shelby # JC101, which fits a 2-1/4-inch jack tube like that on Bulldog Jack # BD1541150301. The thing is this jack has only a 10-inch lift. Other...

If you would like an additional length of 10 gauge wire, you can use part # 10-1-1. I have attached an installation video of this jack for you to check out.

  • How to Determine Weight Capacity of Electric Trailer Tongue Jack for Camper
  • You'll need to chose a jack whose capacity is greater than the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the camper. Going with a powered jack whose capacity is much greater than the tongue weight of the camper is recommended because the jack won't need to work so hard and will therefore last longer. Also, if you're using a weight distribution system on the camper, sometimes you'll want to use the trailer jack to also pick up the rear of the vehicle to put slack into the system so...

  • Are there Instructions for the Internal Parts of a Swivel Trailer Jack
  • The reason why you do not see written instructions for repairs of jacks is the internal parts of a typical trailer jack are not end-user serviceable with the exception of the top gears. And with those it is just a matter of removing the old ones and then reversing the process to install the new ones. The major components that are generally not serviceable are the screw and nut. The nut is fixed inside the jack tube and the screw threads are crimped at one end to prevent over-extension...

You would need to measure your trailer to determine if that would be enough to get the wheels of the ground. The 15 inch lift version part # BD151421 would be 29-1/2 inches from the same points.

  • Availability of A-Frame Mount Trailer Jack w/ 2 Inch Diameter Outer Tube
  • Given the 3500 lb weight of your trailer, your tongue weight will be somewhere between 350 and 525 lbs, so you won't need a jack with a super-high capacity. This being said, choosing a jack with a higher rating than you need isn't a bad idea. The jack (as well as you) won't have to work so hard, which means the jack will last longer. I've looked through our selection of trailer jacks, and have found that none of the jacks we offer have a 2 inch diameter outer tube. 2-1/4 inches is...

The outer tubing of this jack is 2-1/4 inches so depending on your trailer you could find a hole saw in this size or just use a grinder like a dremel to widen it. I would recommend only going wide enough for the jack to install and not any further.

  • Do the Bulldog Landing Gear part # BD500161 Require Grease Maintenance
  • I spoke to my contact at Bulldog and he said that the Bulldog Landing Gear part # BD500161 are pre-greased from the factory and don't require you to follow any lubrication maintenance schedule. Most people just install them and they don't worry about greasing them.

  • How to Install Replacement Extend/Retract Switch # 7145-226023 on JET-3500 Electric A-Frame Jack
  • My manufacturer contact advised that the four screws you have removed are the only fasteners holding the outer jack cover in place. However, I completely understand your concern about applying too much force on the plastic cover. My contact suggested gently applying a flat blade screwdriver blade around the cover's edges to find the spot that most wants to "give" a little. This point would then be your best spot to carefully apply a bit more force to get the cover loose.
