Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Jack M1230 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the 12 volt DC motor for landing gear. This 12 volt electric gear motor is going to power your etrailer or Ram landing gear. Part number RVLG-8000. That landing gear is sold separately. This is going to covert your manual landing gear to electric power, and it can be used to replace an old or worn out motor. Pretty simple installation. It's going to feature this connection point right here and the two mounting locations.

These are going to be the connections points that mounts this to the gear box. Your gear box is not included, but it's going to look something like this. That pin would line up right there with the receiver portion on the motor and then the gear box is going to have these indentions that are going to line up with the mounting points right here on the motor. Inside the gear box are going to be threaded connectors that are going to receive the ends of the included hardware. You'd place that through and once you get it snug, you go ahead and tighten up the bolts that's included with the motor and that will thread into the gear box and that's going to bring these two pieces together which is going to make it feel like one solid piece.

Again, the gear box is not included, so that does need to be provided separately. The power consumption is going to be around 30 amps for this motor. Again, mounting hardware is included. That's going to have two bolts. It's also going to have your black and red wires, so this is going to connect to the landing gear control switch. The control switch would connect to the battery.

The control switch is going to be the unit that retracts or extends the landing gear. When it comes to the measurements of the motor, it's going to give us an overall length measurement from end to end of about 8 1/2 inches long. Measuring this direction, we're looking at about 3 3/8 of an inch. Going this direction, edge to edge, we're looking at a measurement of about 4 inches. These mount holes are going to be separated on center apart from one another by 4 1/8 of an inch. That's going to do it for today's look on the 12 volt DC motor for landing gear..

I bought this motor to replace the weak one on my Newmar Kountry Aire fifth wheel with the Bulldog landing gear rated at 8000 pounds. I replacement motor that I installed last year was rated at 6400 pounds and really struggled to lift the front of this heavy trailer. Taking a chance I ordered the etrailer M1230 motor which is rated at 8000 pounds, hoping it would fit the Bulldog gear. It fits perfectly and has the power to lift the trailer without struggling. It was a five minute install. Highly recommend this motor as a replacement for any landing gear and and the folks at etrailer who were great at answering all my questions. 583053

When I ordered this it was on backorder, once I did get it bolted right in place had to cut the wires on the harness because the plugs were different than my unit .I wired it to my harness and it works perfect what can I say,great product great price . THANKS 445536

Perfect replacement fit and works just as it is supposed to. The motor and gearbox purchase were at a better price than just the motor at most sites. If the old and new motors were side by side without decals on them you could not tell them apart. 541484

Has worked with no problems. Two suggestions, add as an optional buy to legs I bought several weeks before, and a second(faster) gear. However extra gear may add an additional expense. 568740

This product is exactly what I have been looking for and at reasonable price. The only thing I would say, is to put the cost and description on the parts contained in a shipment. We live in a border city Sault Ste. Marie Ontario Canada and pick up our shipments in Sault Saint Marie Michigan USA. When we cross the border into Canada there is no proof of how much the items cost so the guard just needs to take our word for what the cost is. 463023

The products that I purchased are fantastic and are doing the job that I wanted them to do. When I went to the local RV dealer he said “You Can’t Do That On Your RV “. I said “ Just Watch Me”. I put the parts on my RV and they work great. Thanks

I had to replace drive motor due to clutch slippage. the stronger motor would not fit existing gear box, so replaced both for less than factory motor. I would highly recommend for anyone needing to replace the motor on stabilizer legs. 738146

We picked this landing gear for our 33 foot fifth wheel toy hauler. The original leg got bent, so we just decided to replaced the entire unit. It bolted right on, the motor works great and it doesn’t seem to struggle. I would definitely recommend it.. Got a new phone, so I don’t have any pictures of the instal. 733409

This 100% landing gear swap out went flawlessly! The original landing gear motor couldn't handle the extra lift height required when using the Anderson 5th wheel hitch set-up. The component swap was just that, a change of each individual component requiring no modification to the new components of any kind! I'm 100% satisfied with the new landing gear set-up and the ease of the swap!!! 730716

This is a great unit and was very easy to install. No drilling just fasten with the two enclosed bolts wire it up and you are good to go. A very economical way to have electric jacks on your trailer or fifth wheel camper. I do not have pictures right now but very easy to install. Saves a lot of hand cranking. Thanks for a great product. 645312

This made a great direct replacement for my Forest River 5th wheel. It's just as good if not better than the lippart oem one and at a much better price point. With such high value I'm tempted to get another one and a second drive leg and switch to have dual drive/leveling capabilities. 634398

  • Replacement Motor for Lippert Components Power Stabilizer Jack LC337199
    Replacement motor # M1230 fits Ram brand landing gear # RVLG-8000 but not your Lippert Components Power Stabilizer Jack # LC337199. For a replacement motor for this stabilizer you will need Klauber motor part # LC352338.

  • Replacement Motor Needed for an Atwood Motor MPD71119
    From my research the replacement motor kit for your Atwood MPD71119 is the Lippert Tuson High Speed # LC141893. Our motor kit # M1230 will not fit because the mounting holes have a different spacing. We do have the replacement motor # LG-196308 from Stromberg Carlson that has a similar mounting hole spacing (4-3/16") but it only has a speed of 5,430 rpm and a capacity of 6,500 lbs. If this fits what you are looking for then you could potentially use this instead. I have linked a review...

  • Recommended Motor Replacement For Landing Gear Motor 1RV-200
    According to my research the ADTH 1RV-200 motor has a weight capacity of 6,500 lbs. The motor that you are looking at 12-Volt Motor Kit for Ram Landing Gear # M1230 will work for your ADTH 1RV-200 motor but this landing gear is rated at 8,000 lbs. Because the motor is rated for a higher capacity it doesn't raise the capacity of your landing gear. Please note that the mounting hole spacing is 4" on center for this motor. The recommended replacement motor for 1RV-200 motors is #...

  • Replacement Parts for Landing Gear on 2006 Keystone Montana 5th Wheel
    It sounds like you need a gearbox rebuild kit or a new gearbox for the landing gear on your 2006 Keystone Montana. The motor itself will not have a clutch mechanism. If the motor turns then chances are that the issue is downstream, in the gearbox or legs. You can try manually cranking the landing gear to see if they work properly under load. If not, then the gearbox is your most likely suspect. On the linked page for landing gear replacement parts you can click on either Gearbox, to...

  • Weight Capacity for Ram Landing Gear 12-Volt Motor Kit M1230
    Ram Landing Gear 12-Volt Motor Kit # M1230 is rated for use with landing gear having up to an 8000-lb rating, such as set # RVLG-8000. Atwood's discontinued landing gear kit 75721 was rated for 5500-lbs so the new motor will have an easier time operating the jacks.

    Manufacturers of 5th wheel trailers do not usually maintain detailed records of the landing gear they install but we do carry replacement motors that work for a wide range of brands like Lippert, Venture, Ram and others. Often a replacement motor from another brand will also work just fine too. I went to our warehouse to measure this motor's mounting hole spacing and the linked photo shows this 4-inch dimension.

    The 12-Volt Motor Kit for Ram Landing Gear # M1230 or the # LG-142178 may work as a replacement for your Atwood jack. These motors are fairly interchangeable. The issue you are finding is that Atwood was bought by Lippert and their products have been discontinued, so you can't find exact replacement parts. My recommendation is to replace your jack with the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack with Footplate - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black # LC285318 instead of repairing the older...

This is what the motor is rated for. Based on my research, the Keystone Montana RV Line uses a unique landing gear system and the correct replacement motor should be the Stromberg Carlson Replacement Motor # LG-142178.

  • Troubleshooting Slow Operating Speed of Replacement Landing Gear Motor on Toy Hauler
    If your landing gear operates, but operates very slowly, after you replaced the gear box then chances are that you may have a weak ground connection that is preventing full current from reaching the motor. Unless you hear bad noises from the landing gear, you can be pretty confident that the gearbox is a correct fit (many such parts are interchangeable between brands). This motor is intended for 8K landing gear kit # RVLG-8000. I suggest checking both the hot and ground connections for...

  • Troubleshooting Electric Trailer Jack That Does Not Function
    If all fuses/circuit breakers in your truck are good and the trailer's jack wiring is too, the first thing I would check is the power switch on the jack. If you can access the jack motor terminals directly and apply 12V power direct from a battery, bypassing the switch, then you will be able to determine if the switch was damaged when you experienced the short. If the motor works when directly powered then you know the switch needs to be replaced. If the motor does not respond to direct...

    The division at Atwood that handled the jacks and landing gear was sold off to Lippert so direct replacement parts are not available.

    The part # RVLG-8000 is going to work well for you since you said the dimensions are the same. The motor kit for this set is part # M1230 and although it may mount differently it will work. The big thing with these kits is the dimensions matching where the landing gear attaches to the trailer. The standard measurement on landing gear legs is 15-1/2 inches between the tabs that are on the legs of the jack like what you see in the picture I attached.

  • Is there a Way to Identify 5th Wheel Trailer Landing Gear with No Markings
    It is possible that there is a part number somewhere that would help identify the landing gear on your trailer. Sometimes there is information on the underside of the caps on the tops of the jacks so that is another place you can check if you haven't already. Many landing gear parts are interchangeable among the different manufacturers but this is not always the case so identifying the manufacture and/or model number is important. Another option is to replace the landing gear with...

  • Replacement Motor Recommendation for Atwood Landing Gear Motor MPD71119
    It sounds like you are needing a replacement motor for your Atwood Landing Gear System. To replace the MPD71119 motor that you referenced, I recommend the Lippert High Speed Landing Gear Motor # LC141893. This is a high-speed motor that will let you quickly extend and retract the landing gear and it features a 5,000 pound capacity. This will replace your current motor by simply swapping the parts. The RAM jack motor part # M1230 that you referenced is not the correct motor.

  • Replacement Landing Gear Motor and Gear Box Needed for a 2004 Keystone Montana 2980
    I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately manufacturers don't keep that kind of information on file. You could try using a replacement gearbox like part # RVLG-RDBOX and the compatible motor # M1230 that fits Ram jacks, but without knowing the manufacturer and part number it would just be a guess as to whether it is the correct part or not. What I recommend doing is going ahead and just replacing your whole landing gear setup. It might be getting close to time to do that anyways...

    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.
