  • Availability of an Electric A-Frame Jack for a 24 Foot Cargo Trailer
  • The Etrailer Electric A-Frame Jack, # EJ-3520-BBX, would work well for your enclosed trailer. When looking for an electric jack for a trailer you will want to find a jack that will handle the trailer's tongue weight. Typically, the tongue weight of a trailer will be 10 - 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So, if your trailer's gross weight is 10,000 lbs, then the tongue weight will be 1,000 - 1,500 lbs. The best way to power an A-frame jack is to have a battery installed on...

  • Retracted & Extended Heights of etrailer Stabilizer Jack Kit TJ01RT-HD
  • The etrailer Stabilizer Jack Kit # TJ01RT-HD is a pair of folding stabilizers that can bolt or weld on to your trailer. The two height dimensions quoted in the specs, 11-1/2-inches retracted and 18-inches extended, are referenced to the 4 x 1-7/8-inch mounting surface at the top of the jacks. The difference between these two dimensions is the travel of the drop leg, which is 6-1/2-inches.

  • Needing a Jack to Mount to a 5 Inch Tall Frame Rail
  • I have a solution for you, however, the jack that you referenced # MT70149 will not fit a 5 inch trailer tongue. The Fulton Bolt-Thru Swivel Marine Jack, # FXP15, will fit 3 inch x 5 inch trailer tongue and has a lift capacity of 1,500 lbs. This Fulton jack is made of galvanized steel for rust protection. In my research, I found using zinc coated steel with aluminum will cause none to very little corrosion damage in warm, humid, or marine climates.

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Power Tongue Jack
  • Normally an intermittent working motorized jack like the Lippert Components Powered Tongue Jack # LC285318 is due to a faulty ground or a short circuit in the power wire. I recommend checking your ground connections, normally in the mount of the jack to the frame for solid metal to metal contact without corrosion. If that is a clean contact, you will then use a circuit tester like # 3808 to probe the power wire for a short. If you find it, replace that length of wire. Since the...

  • Recommended Maintenance on Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack Part # UF38-944037
  • I spoke with my contact at Ultra-Fab regarding your Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944037. There is no specifically recommended grease to use but something like the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390 should work great. There is not a specific grease fitting that is needed. The best way to access the moving parts is usually to spray the grease up the inner leg with the jack upside down.

  • Recommended Bolt-On Jack For Boat Trailer
  • The trailer jacks we offer for a tongue trailer are all manually operated. We do not have any electric bolt-on jacks available. For a bolt-on trailer jack I recommend a jack like the Fulton XLT Bolt-Thru Swivel Trailer Jack, part # F141133. This is a 1,500-lb jack that bolts to a trailer frame that measures 3 x 3, 3 x 4, or 3 x 5 inches. The jack swivels up to stow it parallel to the trailer frame for travel.

  • Dimension Needed to Determine if Etrailer Landing Gear RVLG-8000 Fits Trailer
  • The etrailer Landing Gear Set, part # RVLG-8000 can be used to replace the landing gear set you have on your trailer most likely. Most landing gears are interchangeable but you can take a quick measurement to make sure this works for you. The weld stops measure 15-1/2 inches inside to inside and 17-1/2 inches outside to outside. For a landing gear with a manual crank included you can order part # RVLG-8HDL. You can add a motor to this landing gear. You would just need part # M1230.

  • 7k Trailer Jack Recommendation for Enclosed Trailer
  • The Square Pipe Mount Swivel Jack # TJDP-7000S-B is a weld-on 7k trailer jack that would work well for you. The pipe mount would weld to the frame of the trailer and allow you to swivel up and down when needed. You should also note that our jacks are rated for lifting strength (tongue weight) and not for the total trailer weight. For the size of your cargo trailer you most likely would have a 700 lb tongue weight which this jack would make easy work of.

  • Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Heartland Mallard 312
  • My favorite powered jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87641 as it has bearings in the screw which allow it to operate quicker and smoother. It also shuts off automatically before topping or bottoming out. Other jacks will allow you to go too far with the jack but in doing so you damage the threads of the screw. It has a lifting capacity of 4,500 lbs which would be more than you'd need but will ensure that the jack will operate quickly and last a long time.

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Jack For 2009 Keystone M-19 Travel Trailer
  • I did some research on your 2009 Keystone M-19 travel trailer. It looks like the base weight of your trailer is 7615-lbs and the tongue weight is 750-lbs. Those weights could change when you have the trailer loaded and ready to tow. The A-frame electric jack I recommend is the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack, part # HT87247. This is a drop leg jack and it has an 18-inch lift, capable of handling 4,500-lbs. The easiest way to run the power to the jack is to wire it as shown in the...

  • Compatibility of a Husky Electric Tongue Jack on a 2016 Jayco Trailer
  • The jack mount opening in the majority of A-frame trailer tongues are usually the same size form trailer to trailer. Most of the outer tube dimensions on tongue jacks measure between 2-3/16 to 2-1/4 inches. With that said the Husky Brute Jack # HT87247 will fit in your trailers tongue jack mount hole. This Husky jack has a manual override crank in case your battery runs dead and ball bearing design reduces friction and will draw 30 percent less power than typical screw systems.

  • Recommended Side Frame Mount Replacement Bulldog Trailer Jack
  • I spoke with my contact at Bulldog and it looks like the 1988 Bulldog Model 160 Trailer Jack you have is welded shut, so you would need to cut into it to reach anything that needs to be fixed. If it is just the pin to the handle that broke, it may be able to be fixed, but I recommend contacting Bulldog directly to see if they have any replacement pins available.

  • How Well Does the Dual Wheeled MaxxTow Round, Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149 Work on Gravel
  • The dual wheels on MaxxTow Round, Swivel Trailer Jack # MT70149 will work better on loose gravel than a single wheeled jack but not as well as wide stance rubber wheels on something like a trailer dolly # MT70225 or the new Trailer Valet XL # TVXL2. The Trailer Valet in particular has chain driven wheels allow you to crank the handle to move the trailer unlike a regular trailer dolly where you'd have to use pure muscle to move the trailer around. I have linked videos on all 3 parts for you.

  • Troubleshooting Swivel Jack That Will Not Swivel
  • There really is no adjustment for this model swivel jack. You could try to spray the pivot point between the jack and mount with a good penetrating oil like # L10444.

  • Recommended Stabilizer Jacks for 13-foot Camper Trailer

  • Is Trailer Jack Weight Rating for Total Trailer Weight
  • The capacities of our jacks are rated for the tongue weight of the trailer which is how much vertical weight is on the coupler/hitch ball. Tongue weight of a trailer is typically 10-15 percent of the total weight of the trailer. So if you trailer weighs a few thousand lbs the tongue weight is probably right at 300 lbs for example. Which a swivel jack like the part # PS1401140303 would have no problem with.

  • Will the Atwood Stabilizer Jacks Support a 4,600 Pound Fireball Trailer
  • Stabilizing jacks are for just that, helping to keep the trailer stable. They shouldn't be used for lifting the trailer, and therefore you don't need them to support its entire weight. The Atwood Jacks # AT82298 will work just fine for your Fireball.

  • Electric Jack Recommendation To Replace Manual Jack on Trailer
  • It sounds like you are looking for either an A-frame jack or a powered landing gear set. Is the trailer a bumper pull trailer or a gooseneck/fifth wheel? My favorite powered A-frame jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87641 as it has bearings in the screw which allow it to operate quicker and smoother. It also shuts off automatically before topping or bottoming out. Other jacks will allow you to go too far with the jack but in doing so you damage the threads of the screw. If...

  • Do Powered Jacks Only Need One Wire Ran to Them
  • Most trailer jacks like the Lippert # LC285318 only use one wire. That wire provides the power and the assembly grounds through the mounting hardware of the jack. It's hard to tell what's going on with the electric tape and splice connector I see on your current setup but new jacks would only need one wire.

  • Landing Gear Legs Do Not Travel Far Enough to Level Weekend Warrior 5th Wheel Trailer
  • One possible cause of the landing gear not working properly is electrical especially considering you have already replaced mechanical parts. If the battery does not have enough charge it can cause the landing gear to not operate properly. But if you need longer legs or a system with more travel then we can look at alternate systems. A system such as # RVLG-8000 has 21-1/8 inches of travel in the legs but also has drop legs for more adjustability making this a great system for your needs....

  • Troubleshooting Ultra-Fab Electric Jack 4000 lbs
  • With the LED working, but switch not functioning, on your Ultra Fab Jack # UF38-944016 it is time to run some tests. First, you may just want to run a jumper wire to bypass it to see if the motor works directly with the battery first and if so, check your wires or run new. If the motor won't work directly wired, then the motor is bad. If the motor works, then there is a wiring issue. Using a circuit tester like # 3808, check for power to your switch then from your switch to determine...

  • Recommendation for Moving a Trailer Since Wheels are Not Available on Powered A-Frame Jacks
  • Electric A-Frame trailer jacks generally do not come with wheels or have options for wheels. The reason is that the wheels are rated much lower than the jack. So for example if a wheel were used on jack # BD500200 the capacity would be limited to the 1,000 pounds of the wheel even though the jack is rated for 4,000 pounds. A better option would be to use whatever jack you want and then use a trailer dolly such as # TVXL2 or # TVXL25. Both of these models are chain-driven and have high...

I also measured from the bracket that fixes to your trailer's A-frame to the bottom of the mounting plate for the motor and that measured 13 inches. See included picture for a visual. To make sure that you have a secure power connection to the jack motor I recommend...

  • Compatibility of the Fulton F2 Swing-Up Jack on a Ranger Boat Trailer
  • If the frame of your Ranger boat trailer measures 3X3 inches or 3X4 inches, then the Fulton F2 Swing-Up Jack # F1413020134 will fit your trailer's frame. This Fulton jack has many of the same dimensions and features of the Fulton F2 Swing-Up Jack # F1413140334. Both have a lift capacity of 1,600 lbs and both have a 10 inch lift height. The only differences I see are the wheel size, the frame mounting size, and number of wheels attached.

  • Troubleshooting Ultra-Fab Powered Trailer Jack That Lights Up But Does Not Function
  • Did you ever find the cause for the first jack's malfunction? Such as was its switch corroded? Were its cables loose? Did it work when tested while NOT mounted on the trailer? The most likely cause for the jack to fail to operate (though the light does still work) is a weak ground connection. Keep in mind that the LED light on this jack needs almost no power to operate. Just because the light works this does NOT mean that your jack's motor is getting the full amperage it needs to function....

  • Overall Measurements of Foot and Where to Weld on Bulldog 2K Snap-Ring Swivel Jack
  • I went out to the warehouse to measure Bulldog trailer jack # BD151101. The overall length and width of the footplate is 7-1/2 x 4 inches. The part that gets welded to the trailer is L-Shaped. The lip that rests on top of the frame it 4-9/16 inches long and 13/16 inches deep. I would weld the lip to the top of the frame the whole length. On the sides you can weld two 1 inch long 3/16 fillet welds per side of the plate.

  • Recommended Jack To Be Used For Changing Tires
  • We do have a jack that would work for you when you want to change the tire on your trailer or vehicle, but the Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jack, part # UF48-979006 is not designed to be able to hole that much weight. Ultra-Fab's note states ' This jack is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight, not to support the full GVWR of your trailer. Do not use this jack to lift your trailer or RV. Doing so will exceed the capacity of the jack.' I recommend the Powerbuilt Unijack,...

  • Can Someone Just Remove the Mounting Bolts and Remove the Jack to Steal the Trailer

The Fastway lock will work on 1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16 inch couplers. With any theft deterrent device, if anyone really wants something they will find a way around any security.

  • Recommended Square A-Frame Jack With 5000 lb Capacity
  • My recommendation is the Square A-Frame Jack w/ Footplate - Drop Leg - Sidewind - 15-1/4" Travel - 5,000 lbs, # TJDA-5000S. This jack has the same mounting as the Bulldog Square, A-Frame Jack - Drop Leg - Topwind - 15" Lift - 3,000 lbs, # BD195318 you mentioned. The only difference is that it is a sidewind jack instead of a topwind jack. We do not have a topwind option for square A-frame jacks with 5,000 lb capacity.

  • All of the jack wheels we have are for round tube jacks but there is an alternative to moving around a trailer other than a wheeled jack. You could use a trailer dolly such as # MT70225. It is rated for 600 pounds tongue weight and since your trailer is 2,500 pounds at most the tongue weight would be around 250 pounds. There isn't a gross trailer weight capacity because it just depends on how much weight the user can pull or push around. Another option that will assist in moving the...

  • How to Access Chain Drive and Gears for Inspection on a Trailer Valet Jack and Trailer Mover
  • There are 2 chain drives in the Trailer Valet # STC-V211. You can see if there is any damage, broken teeth on a gear, loose parts and so on by removing the side cover, part number 9 in the included illustration. To me it sounds like a broken tooth on a gear but once you have the cover off you will be able to determine that. When you are inspecting it the weight has to be off of the Trailer Valet so you will need to support the trailer another way such as having it coupled to a vehicle.
