Video Transcript for Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Bulldog Powered-Drive A Frame Trailer Jack with Drop Leg. In black, the part number is BD500187. In white, the part number is BD500188.This is going to be a really great easy solution for lowering your coupler down on your ball mount or lifting it up using either power supplied from your vehicle or from your trailer. Eliminate the need to hand crank up and down.Here you'll see we've got a couple switches on the face of the jack. This one is going to be for our LED light, we've got a very nice bright 2 LED light here. It's designed to illuminate our coupler area to make connections easier.

Then our other switch is either for retracting or extending the jack.There are a few things that really stand out about this jack. It's a good, quick jack so it's going to raise and lower our coupler very quickly for us. It's also very quiet. Typically you'll find either a fast jack that's going to give you a good lift and good drop or a quiet jack. It's not all the time you'll see them in the same package.As you can just listen, that's extending it, that's the most load we're going to have.

Really nice and quiet, same thing with retracting. It's a nice quiet jack, but still does a great job to get the job done.The light is also much brighter than what we often see on other jacks. You'll also notice we don't have a huge head on top of the jack, it's got a nice small sleek housing so it should fit in a lot of different applications.The housing's a complete cover that comes down and over all the way around to help any rain run off. It's got sealed switches in the cap here for our manual override. We don't have to worry about moisture sinking down and settling down in our components.The jack's been designed for use with trailers that have a 2-1/4 inch opening in the tongue.

Our outer tube's 2-1/4 inches, so we want to be sure we have the room for that to slide down and through.As you can see, the tube and also our mounting flange has the black powder coat finish. That's going to do a great job of resisting corrosion. The inner tube of the jack and the drop leg also have a zinc coating on them. That's going to help resist any corrosion, just like the pin that we have to hold that in place.That drop leg itself gives this a total of 8 inches of adjustment. That's a lot more adjustment than what we see on some of the other jacks out there.

Typically they're going to be four, five, maybe up to seven. The two inches that we have between each hole gives us a lot of good adjustment.Our foot pack's diameter is going to be 5-1/2 inches. It helps to dissipate the energy of this tube out over a greater area. We're not going to have to worry about it sinking down in softer ground or even asphalt.From the bracket to the top of the jack, it's about 20-1/2 inches. You just want to make sure you've got that kind of room for clearance. With the smaller design here on the top, it should work out in those tighter spaces.It's going to give us a bracket height or a measurement to the top of our coupler here, about 31-3/4 of an inch. If we take that drop away, it'll be about 23-3/4.Based on some of the reviews, when our jack is fully extended, if we continue to hold down that button, it's likely we're going to blow the fuse. A lot of users have commented you can use a permanent marker and just get yourself a mark on there so you'll know when the jack is fully extended. You can do the same thing at the fully retracted position just to give yourself a guide.Now in the event that we lose power, maybe the battery on the trailer goes dead, maybe we have a malfunction on our truck side, we do have the cap. We'll just remove that, that's going to allow us access into the manual crank section. Then it will operate just like any regular jack, up and down. It doesn't take a whole lot of effort.To begin our installation, we want to of course have our old jack removed. We're using jack stands to support the tongue, and you also want to be sure you've got your trailer chocked properly. You don't want it to move.At that point we'll place the outer tube down through the hole. You want to ensure that this is at least 2-1/4 inches so the tube will fit. You see with that really long drop leg we talked about, it's a good idea to have this positioned underneath so as we place the jack down and in, it's going to engage. Move that down. Now we're able to retract that drop leg, and we'll just get it pinned up.In the kit you've got three star washers. These are going to go underneath the jack on top of the trailer there. We'll line it up with our holes. Now with this jack you will have the opportunity to mount it either in the straight traditional configuration or in the side facing configuration if you want to be able to access your buttons from the driver's side. That gives us a little bit of option there.We place out star washers right underneath each of the holes. This provides a good ground between the jack and the trailers, since we don't have a ground wire this makes sure that we have a good connection.In the kit, we also have provided hardware. We've got the bolt and the lock washer, we're reusing the original flat washer that we had. With these oblong holes it's a good idea to have one between that lock washer and those holes, just so it doesn't mess that up on us. If your trailer doesn't have a flat washer on it now in each spot, then you'll want to use a 3/8 diameter.Then we'll use our 9/16 inch socket. We're going to snug down our hardware and then torque it to the specifications which you'll find in your instructions. Now we can get our wire extended out, and we'll want to make our connection to the power source.Now you've got options; if you have an onboard battery in your trailer, that's typically where you'll want to go with it. That way you'll always have power to your jack. If you don't have an onboard battery, then you'll want to run it probably to your junction box. You'll be getting power through the vehicle, so that means your jack will only operate when it's connected to a vehicle.That's the way this trailer's set up. It doesn't have an onboard battery, so that's what we're going to do. Here's the wire that provides the 12 volt power that comes from our junction box, just ran along the frame rail back there. That's where we're going to make our connection.To make our connection, we're going to use a heat shrink butt connector. Since this is on the outside of the trailer, we want to maximize any resistance to the elements, make sure we don't have corrosion and stuff like that to deal with. The part we're going to use is DW05745, just place that on the stripped end of your wire and crimp it down.In the jack side, depending on where you have to run your wire, you might have a little bit of extra. Once we have the length selected that we need, we'll use the supplied zip ties and we can secure it. We just place the wire from our jack in and get it crimped down.Next we're going to add a little bit of heat. You can use a heat gun, you can use a mini torch, or you can use a lighter. Just want to gently heat the plastic on the end and you'll see it start to shrink down. Now we can use a couple of zip ties and secure that off.Now with it plugged into our power source, ready to extend our footplate down, and then extend the jack. Once we've got the weight off our jack stand, we'll remove them and our trailer will be ready for use.That's going to complete our look at the Bulldog Power Drive A-Frame Trailer Jack.

Jack arrived in 2 days. Fits great and easy to install. Jack head only sticks out 3 inches from front of tube, closer then most. This allows me to open tailgate without hitting jack. I use an extended reciever for more clearance. Light on jack also shines in the bed of truck. 441032

I bought this jack for my 2008 Prowler. It worked better than the original jack. Since then, I have traded my Prowler in for a 2018 travel trailer. I wish I had this jack instead of the 2018 jack. 559023

Fair price. Quick shipping. Arrived as promised.Installation video was very helpful, as were the instructions. Add the drop leg BEFORE bolting the unit in place. Otherwise, you need to raise the tongue to get the leg underneath. Simple install. 361509

What a dream come true! This electric jack replaced my old hand crank unit on my 24 foot travel trailer. Installation was very simple with the one wire hook up. What I like most about this jack is the drop leg. This jack extends so far that now I won't need to bring all my boards (for lifting height) with me just to get the trailer off of the hitch. Not included was a ring terminal for attaching the wire to the battery, but thats okay because I had one laying around. Another thing that I did, was that I found some flat washers to use between the head of the mounting bolt and the jack. The provided lock washers looked like they'd pull through the mounting plate. Just be aware that the motor unit on the jack protrudes to the back and front of the center line of the jack tube. I'll have to deal with some clearance issues between the jack motor and my propane tanks. This isn't a flaw with the jack, just a quirk with my particular trailer setup. Its a very nicely built jack, feels solid and heavy in your hand. Its powerful too. It had no problem picking up the trailer and my 2007 F-150 in order to install my weight distributing bars. 519677

If you need a ring terminal to wire this jack part # BD500187 I recommend part # DW05705-1
Ring Terminal - 12-10 Gauge Wire - 3/8" Ring ID
$1.59
for a 3/8 stud size, part 44-5310A for a 3/16 stud size or part 44-5356A for a 5/16 stud size. All of these ring terminals will work with 12-10 Gauge Wire. Deka 10 gauge wire part # 10-1-1
10 Gauge Primary Wire - Blue - per Foot
$1.27
will work well if you need extra wire.

One year review : Excellent. I bought a used camper. Toungue Jack failed immediately. I searched for a quality replacement jack and found this. It was easy to install ( i am disabled ) and has performed well and met my every expectation. I keep the head tightly covered with a plastic bag to protect from the elements, and also a vinyl slip on cover to protect from uv. I use this on a Rockwood 2109s camper. 647529

I installed a new trailer jack on my 2016 Lance 22' Travel Trailer. The jack handles about 400-lb. greater capacity than the original equipment and works great with no hiccups. The problem is with the power or control head on the unit, which extends about 2' to the rear or toward the trailer, prevents use of the cover or shroud for the gas bottles. I don't like leaving the bottles, valves and hoses exposed to the elements and possible theft. Either the jack has to be moved forward or the bottles and their mounts have to be moved to the rear. Either way involves drilling new mounting holes in the platform - a major pain! 642695

The jack has been great. Used it to replace the factory hand crank. Don't know if I can ever go back to a hand crank now. Two thumbs up. 641419

Very happy with the performance of our Bulldog. The name fits. What a difference as compared to a manual jack. Well worth the modest expense, and installation was hardly rocket science. The built in light is a great feature for evening set ups. A minor tip - cover the motor during outside storage to limit the risk of water seepage into the unit. Our experience with etrailer was also very positive. 640008

It's been a year now, and my jack is working just like it did a year ago when I installed it on my 32ft wildwood camper. Still smooth motion up and down. I really enjoy having it. Makes camping so much easier. One of the best purchase decisions I have made! I do have a cover I put on it when I bought it new, so it has never been wet, or exposed to sunlight. I can work the buttons on the jack through the cover, so I never take it off. I do love the jack. Thank you guys so much for good quality at a great great price! 638730

I have had no problems with this jack. From past knowledge, I know that most jack problems are from poor grounds. I made sure all ground connections were free of paint and tight. Including those under the switch cover. 615456

After 1 year this jack has been working flawlessly. It has weathered just fine (although I keep a cover over the head unit). The best feature is that I was able to mount it sideways, allowing my tailgate to clear it by an inch! 611376

Love it , works great....no sweat . I bought a new camper just over a yr ago & it had a hand crank . I knew it would suck doing this by hand so I started looking for a electric crank , after look'n for a few days I found what I was look'n for , after doing research on different brands . I'm differently very happy with what I've invested with . Bulldog power electric trailer jack . 611331

The product came well packaged... on the second shipment! The first one was open and not good looking. Stuff happens, and it was corrected very quickly by etrailer reshipping a perfectly new Jack. And it works good and is really strong. Very happy with etrailer service and the Bulldog product. 599742

I love this jack. Have had no issues at all and it's on a fairly nose heavy trailer that gets a lot of use. That's why I was so tired of the manual jack. I also added a solar powered charging panel to keep the battery topped off when it wasn't being used for awhile 564886

Do you have a question about this Camper Jack?


  • Comparing the Husky Brute and Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jacks
  • There are pros and cons to both Husky and Bulldog electric trailer jacks. My favorite Husky jack is the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack part # HT87248 and my favorite Bulldog jack is the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack part # BD500187. The reason I like the Husky is because it has a built-in automatic stop that will prevent you from overextending the jack and damaging the internal components. The reason I like the Bulldog jack is because it has a five year warranty so if anything were...

  • Recommendation on a A-Frame Tongue Jack for a Trailer
  • For an electric A-frame trailer jack, I recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack, # HT87248. The Bulldog Powered Jack, # BD500187, would work well on your trailer; however, I like the Husky jack because of its low-friction ball screw and ball bearing design. The Husky jack will give you 3,000 lbs of lifting capacity, but at far less power draw than the other A-frame jacks. The smooth action low-friction screw will minimize resistance and allow the jack to extend and retract...

This is a very reliable trailer jack that not only operates quickly but also fairly quietly. This is available in white or black # BD500187.

  • Does Bulldog Powered A-Frame Jack # BD500187 Have Inline Fuse
  • If you wanted to add an inline fuse to the Bulldog Jack part # BD500187 you certainly could, but it does not come with one. It has an internal circuit breaker so you could use a fuse holder like part # FLX30357K that comes with a 40 amp fuse that you could use as way to prevent people from running the jack when it is unattended by you.

  • Electric Jack Recommendation to Replace a Jack with a 2 inch Outer Diameter
  • The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500187 has an outer tube diameter of 2-1/4 inches and an inner tube diameter of 2-1/16 inches. This jack should be able to work on your trailer but it really depends on the diameter of the hole in your coupler. If it is larger than 2-1/4 inches then the jack will install. If the hole is smaller than that you may have to enlarge the hole to install the # BD500187. Or, if you can get by with a lower capacity you could use a Stromberg Carlson...

Also check for corrosion or damage to the power wire and where it connects to the battery. The light switch...

  • The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black # BD500187 will have the same bolt holes as your current triangle base, it will just have the rounded base between those bolts. It shouldn't change the fit with your propane tanks at all. Even the housing for the electric motor on top should clear the rounded part of close propane tanks so you will not have an issue.

  • Powered Trailer Jack Recommendation for Skyline Koala 24RBK Travel Trailer
  • According to my research, the GVWR of the 24RBK is almost 6000 lbs, which means that in the worst-case scenario the tongue weight would be just under 900 lbs. When you're choosing a powered jack, I'm a firm believer in overkill. Choosing a jack with a much higher capacity than you actually need means that the jack won't have to work so hard and should operate more reliably in the long run. The Bulldog # BD500187 would be an excellent choice. The jack has a 3500 lb capacity, which is...

  • Is Bulldog Manual Override Crank Handle Compatible With Pro Series Electric Jack?
  • Replacement Manual Override Crank for Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500203 is not compatible with the Pro Series Electric jacks. I reached out to my tech contact at Pro Series and they said they don't have any replacement cranks that are compatible with their jacks. Unfortunately they said that if that part is needed, you need to replace the jack because only the one that comes with it will work. Bulldog jacks are made by the same company, and Pro Series is their entry level...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack for Fleetwood Mallard Camper
  • The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black # BD500187 is a great option at a very good price point. The warranty does substantially beat the competitors and customers have been extremely happy. This will also have a built in clutch so you don't burn out your motor from over extending or retracting. I normally recommend the Husky Brute # HT87247 because it has the ball screw design that sets it apart and there are replacement parts available....

  • Electric Tongue Jack Recommendation for A-Frame Trailer with 2-1/4 Inch Mounting Hole
  • To answer your question, no, you do not have to use a jack with an outer tube dimension of 2-1/4 inches. An electric jack like the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack, # UF38-944017, with a 2 inch outer tube diameter can be mounted on your travel trailer even though the jack mounting hole is 2-1/4 inches in diameter. When it comes to installing the jack, the mounting flange was designed with slotted bolt holes to allow for installation on an a-frame trailer with a 2 inch or 2-1/4 inch opening....

  • How to Manual Raise and Lower a Bulldog Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • It depends on which Bulldog powered A-frame trailer jack you have. For example, # BD500200. has a cap on top and you can use a socket wrench and socket to manually crank the jack up and down. Jacks # BD500187 and # BD500188 come with a handle. But both of these have a cap on top that you will remove to access the manual override.

  • Comparing the White and Black Bulldog Powered A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • Basically the finish is the difference between the Bulldog Powered Trailer Jack # BD500188 and # BD500187. All of the other specs are the same or within a fraction of an inch (the only one that is different is the retracted height which is 1/4 inch off between the two; still well within the margin of error). If you need a black finish to match the trailer or you just like it, go with # BD500187. If white is more appealing, go with # BD500188. Both jacks are highly rated by customers...

  • What Gauge Wire and Fuse Should be Used to Install Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Jack BD500187
  • When wiring up the Bulldog A-frame trailer jack # BD500187 you can use 12 gauge wire such as # 12-1-1 (sold by the foot) as long as the distance from the jack to the battery is less than 20 feet. I am assuming that the battery is located at the front of the trailer near the jack so that shouldn't be a problem. You could use a larger gauge wire such as # 10-1-1 (also sold by the foot) but it is up to you. An inline fuse is not needed because the jack has an internal self-resetting...

  • For your Pacific Ridge Komfort 24RK a-frame travel trailer the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500187, which is rated for 3500-lbs, is an excellent choice for a replacement powered tongue jack. This will bolt up to the standard mount on your a-frame using the hardware supplied with the jack. To make a solid ground connection at the round mounting flange you may want to sand off the paint from both the bottom of the jack plate and the mating surface on the trailer frame.

  • Powered Bulldog Jack/Motor Recommendation for a Farm Implement
  • If you have a set of 12k capacity Bulldog landing gear on your farm implement you could use the # BD1824200100 as a motor if the jack is single speed, or part # BD1824180100 if the jack is 2 speed. This would be a solution if the implement has a gooseneck style of coupler. If you have an A-frame trailer you would need to upgrade the current jack to a part # BD500187. The motor of the # BD500161 is available separately, part # BD500359. However, this can't be modified to fit a non-powered...
