Video Transcript for Review of Lippert Components - Trailer Jack,Camper Jack - LC178653

Today, we're going to take a look at the replacement lead leg for the Keystone Montana fifth wheel landing gear. Now, this part will replace the OEM lead leg for the Keystone Montana fifth wheel landing gear.Now, the Keystone Montana fifth wheel uses a unique custom landing gear system from Lippert, and it's designed to only fit the Lippert frame on the Montana RV. This is the lead leg for that landing gear system. This part will include the landing gear lead leg, and the snap pin on the bottom here. It's very easy to install, with minimal assembly required.I'll give you a few dimensions on this. The outer tube overall length, just going to measure top to bottom, of 29 and a half inches.

The width on it is going to be two and a half inches by two and a half inches. It does have three weld stops on it. There's an upper weld stop, a middle one, and a lower weld stop. Going to give you some dimensions on that. So, if we measure from the top of the upper weld stop to the bottom of the middle weld stop, it's going to be 17 and a half inches.

If it goes to the bottom of the lower weld stop, it's 21 and a half inches. And then, if we measure from the bottom of the upper weld stop to the top of the middle weld stop, it's 15 and a half inches, and to the top of the lowest weld stop is 19 and a half inches.But that should do it for the review on the replacement lead leg for the Keystone Montana fifth wheel landing gear.

Front drive leg for 2008 Montana. Great service part wonderful. Thanks for the great help Troy. I recommended you to the other volunteers here at Pedernalles State Park and put your info up on board in office. THANKS!!! 330927

The item was delivered on time as promised (thanks Kim). Easy take off and replacement. This item came with the third leg which I wasn't expecting. My Montana Mountaineer didn't have the three bump outs that this leg has. Mine old leg had two like the LG179013 has. That one may have worked for me. Happy with the purchase anyway. 369167

I received the first jack, it was put together wrong or something. I called and then sent pictures you said I did receive the wrong jack. You gave me a 5% discount so I then ordered a jack for the other side of my camper. I received both jacks and installed them. Everything is working well! 546131

When I first installed the landing gear, it functioned well. After one retraction the lower portion (sliding part attached to foot) will not smoothly retract and extend, up and down from the unit. A rubber hammer must be used to make it work. 717069

  • Replacement Lead Landing Gear Leg for a 2004 Keystone Challenger 34TBH
    Replacement leg # LC178653 is unique to the Keystone Montana. Your 2004 Keystone Challenger likely uses a different lead leg, # LC179013. But it will depend on where the stops are located on the existing leg. The stops are the protrusions that stick out from the legs. Leg # LC179013 has then on the same side as the drive shaft, see picture. If yours are on the opposite side as what is shown in the picture you would need leg # LC119102.

  • Replacement Landing Gear Set Recommendation for 2007 Keystone Cougar
    A Keystone Cougar would use the standard style of landing gear unlike the Montana which uses a unique style. For a powered set that will fit your trailer and work well we have the Stromberg Powered Landing Gear part # LG-1 or for the non-powered kit that will cost a bit less we have the part # LG-183708 which will require you to crank the jacks by hand.

  • Replacement Landing Gear for 2006 34 ft Keystone Montana
    Since 17-1/2 inches and 17-3/8 inches is only 1/8 of an inch difference you might have measured incorrectly.

  • Can You Replace Factory Landing Gear Of 2006 Keystone Montana With Bulldog System
    I contacted Keystone about the Montana and they could not confirm if Bulldog options would work. Because of the unique design that requires a custom set of replacement legs, they highly recommended staying with replacement parts specifically made for the Montana. The options like Item # RP500708 could work so long as you have enough room for everything. Item # BD500161 inside the weld stops measurement of 15-1/2 inches and an outside the weld stops measurement of 17-1/2 inches....

    The Montana by Keystone had a special set of landing gear made for them by Lippert. So typically we recommend the part # LC178653 for the lead leg and part # LC178652 for the follow leg. The difference is the mounting bracket location that's on the jack. So your best option for a dual motor landing gear setup would be the Bulldog kit part # BD500161 which can have the motors inverted when installed like what you see in the attached picture. This will give you more clearance. The mounting...

  • Keystone Montana Landing Gear Legs Turn but Won't Retract/Extend
    I suspect that there is a gearing problem inside the landing gear legs on your Keystone Montana 5th Wheel Trailer. In order to check this you will need to remove the end cap and take a look at the bevel gears as you turn the manual crank handle. The odds are that the gears are sheared and no longer engaging which means you can either rebuild them with part # LC146059 for the lead leg and part # LC146060 for the follow leg or you can replace them with part # LC178653 for the lead leg and...
