Video Transcript for Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack designed for use on A-frame trailers, it offers a drop leg, 14" of lift, and a 4,000 pound weight capacity, part number in black is BD500199. This is also available in white as part number BD500200. With both our jack extended fully and our drop leg extended fully we're going to have a bracket height, or a height to the piece of steel we mounted the jack to of about 32". If we reduce the lift that we get from our drop log which is 8" that'll bring us down to about 24". With our drop leg fully extended, at our lowest position we're going to have about 18" to the top of our bracket, so if we we're to reduce the 8" the drop leg adds we'll be all the way down to 10". The Bulldog jack's a really nice clean looking jack.

Looks a little different than a lot of them that you see out there. Our top cover is fully sealed, we've got our switches located right here on the front, access hole if we ever need to get into the emergency lift section there, and also a fully adjustable level here that allows us to level out our trailer. Then adjust that so it's level, and we'll know we're always going to have a perfect match. The housing comes down and over, it's got a full lip all the way around the bottom that overhangs that lower section so it's not just putting two pieces of plastic together, we've actually got a nice overlap that's happening to give us some additional weather resistance. We've got our retract and our extend right here, easy to get to, toggle style switch. We've also got the button right here that's going to turn on not only the light that comes up here to the front for where we're going to be connecting to the vehicle but it also offers two almost spotlight style LEDs on the side with a really wide angle that'll come out and help us with those weight distribution set ups and things like that.

Also, something that's nice as you can see there, when we get to full retraction, see we've got that stop point, or full extension, there's going to be built in stop that are going to prevent us from over revving or over cranking and doing any kind of damage to our motor, so it's a really nice built in fail safe. Our main tube here is going to have full corrosion resistance put on it and even our inner tube, our drop leg, and plunger kit are all going to have corrosion resistant properties built in so it'll make it a good long lasting product. The plunger kit is pretty awesome really. Let me retract the jack just a little bit to give us some free play here. Whenever we get where we're going and we're ready to drop it, pull that, allow it to slide down, perfect. Once we hook up the trailer, it's time to leave, we're not going to have to worry about kneeling down, doing a pin and clip situation, trying to get it put back in, we just pull, raise it, and as soon as that slides back in we know we're in our highest position ready to head down the road.

Another great feature that way have, a lot of trailers nowadays have the side load aspect just like this one, you take a panel off the side, you can drive your four wheeler or whatever it is right up on the trailer. That puts a lot of side to side strain on your trailers as you can imagine, so what they've incorporated here with this Bulldog is from where our drop leg meets our inner tube, even at full extension we've still got about 6" of overlap between those two giving us that great side to side stability, same thing can be said here for our upper tube and our inner tube, where they meet we've got good overlap so we get plenty of support side to side for those side loading applications. The jack can not only be mounted in a forward facing position as you see it here but also in a sideways configuration which we'll give you a few more details on here in a minute. Now let's go over a couple of measurements and see exactly what room we're going to need. From the center of our outer tube to the outermost edge of our jack here on the back it's about 3 1/2" then from the center of our tube to the outermost edge of our jack if we we're to use it in a sideways configuration is going to be about 2 1/4". From our top plate or our bracket where we mount the jack to to the very top of our jack, we're looking about 21". We just want to make sure that we keep enough room over top of that to accommodate the head of the jack.

Once we have our trailer sitting nice and level, our spring loaded level here on the top's going to allow us to adjust it to where it's going to line up perfectly, sometimes our brackets can be a little bit off there, so all we have to is make our adjustment here, get that dialed in so it's centered. While it's not as important on an open trailer and things we've got like this, and with every situation you're going to be using it in, we'll be able to get that perfectly flat and level. If you want it to be set on a different angle, you're not stuck having your bubble halfway off, you can set the angle you want your trailer to sit at and adjust your levels so that when you hit that mark you'll know and the bubble will be nice and centered right there on top. We've also got the rubber cap here on top, if we get in the situation where we lose battery power we can pull that right out, use the attached handle, slide it in, you want to rotate it til it clicks in just like that and then you've got full control here just like you would with a manual jack. We're never going to run into a situation where we're not going to be able to hook our trailer up or unhook our trailer, even if our batteries have gone bad and we don't have any option there. Whenever we get done, we'll put that nice rubber plug, see it's nice, soft, and malleable, but it's going to seal up that hole really well, right on top, and that's going to protect our internal components and keep that nice and water resistant. The installation's going to be pretty straightforward, it's a nice easy setup to do, it's going to need the 2 1/4" diameter main hole for the 2 1/4" jack tube to come down through. The leg coming out itself, our inside tube, that's going to be 2" so all your 2" accessories are going to work great for that. As far as installation goes, we'll pull the pin and clip located here at the bottom, we're going to take that drop leg all the way out, with that set aside we're just going to slide our jack right down into the hole location and then kind of rotate it around, the front of it should be facing forward so our holes line up. In our conventional setup we just have our jacks right out the front here, but something that's nice, if we're very limited on access, if the front of our trailer comes up really close to where this is, we can rotate that 90 degrees and our holes are going to line up once again giving us the option to mount it this way, saving us a lot of space there. Our jack's going to come with a basic set of hardware to help with our installation. In our case today, our holes are threaded, designed for use with 3/8 bolts which are included so we're going to be able to thread right down into those. If you've got pass through holes or if your 3/8 bolt passes down through then they also include nuts. In addition to that we've got star washers and lock washers and the only thing we're going to add are some just basic flat 3/8 washers, just to help cover up those oblong holes on the top so our lock washer will get a good bite. We're going to bring our drop leg around the underside of our A-frame here and then as we lower our jack, we'll lower it right down onto that. We'll then take one of the star washers and place it under each of the three hole locations, this is going to go through the mounting bracket on our jack and the top of our trailer. Then we'll take one of our 3/8 bolts with the flat washer, lock washer, and bolt, and place it right down in and just get our thread started there. With everything started, let's snug them down. Now we can grab our torque wrench and torque it down to the specifications we'll find in the instructions. Wiring's a nice easy process, we've just got a single power wire that we need to get to our 12 volt power source on our trailer. This trailer works with a junction box, we've got a 12 volt power wire that's designed to come up, connect into the trailer, just like that. We're going to be using heat shrink butt connectors today, those are available on our website, if you don't already have them at home go ahead and pick a few up. We just want to trim off the end of our power wire, whether this goes into our battery, whether it runs through the vehicle, or wherever your 12 volt power source is on your trailer, that's where you'll want to pick it up. Add a butt connector there, crimp that down, the end of our jack wire's already stripped off there, we're going to just clean it up though. That's going to go right into the other end here. Give it a good pull, make sure that's nice and solid, then we can use a heat gun, or a lighter, or a little mini torch, or whatever we've got handy there. Apply some heat here to our connector and allow those ends to shrink down. We've got some extra wire here which is great, if we ever need to make any repairs or make any changes we'll have some extra there. Let's go ahead and just get it tidied up, like to bring it straight down the jack tube and then put one of our zip ties around the bottom here, seems to give us a good anchor point down here so we're not worried about hanging up on anything while we're using our trailer in our everyday operations. Then for the excess, just get that neatly bundled here and we're going to tuck this up against the frame rail of the trailer and just keep it up above the frame rail that way we won't have any issues with it hanging up. Just keep it up out of the way so that it doesn't get hung up on anything. For installing our plunger kit we want to remove our drop leg. We'll pull that pin out as far as it'll go, as you can see that pin's going to have a little slide through on it. Got a little tab there and then the notch on the backside of the jack tube is what that's actually going to slide right up onto. We pull our pin all the way out, slide it up on there, and then our pin's going to go right through the hole that normally we would put the standard style pin in. With that in the proper position there, we'll go ahead and tighten down the nut that's here on the backside, this is going to be a 15. Then this allows us a very quick and easy way to operate our drop leg. Slide that back in, pull out the pin, you can see at each of its notches it's going to catch instantly. While it might take you just a second to get it installed, it's something that really comes in handy and saves us a lot of time. Once we pull up to our location where we need to unhook our trailer, drop that down to whatever height we require, and we don't have to worry about always putting this pin in and out, maybe losing it somewhere and then our drop leg's ineffective, so just a great way to have that fully functional and ready when we need it. That'll complete today's look at the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack, with 14" of lift and a 4,000 pound capacity, it's part number is BD500199.

I ordered the Reese Bulldog 4000lb power tongue jack on 6/2 and received it on 6/6, my second order from etrailer and it came just as fast as the hitch that I ordered from them previously. The jack was characteristically well packaged so everything was received in perfect condition. The installation took a half hour, including hitching the trailer up to my truck and unhitching after the swap out. I did read the instructions quickly before starting and I would recommend that anyone doing the installation do so as well, just to avoid any hick-ups. Overall it was a very easy installation. Because of limited space I did have to mount the jack sideways, so I appreciate that Reese gave me that option. The one item that I did not finish was a permanent power hook-up. The power wire provided was too short so I will be putting a connector inline so that I can route the wire to the battery terminal. 518419


Comments

After a year of using the Bulldog tongue jack, I really appreciate how easy it makes hooking up the weight distribution bars on my hitch. Just push the Extend button and lift the connected trailer tongue until I can flex the weight distribution tension bars into place. These need to be standard equipment on travel trailers the crank jack that came with it was entirely inadequate/impractical for the work needed to lift the connected tongue to complete my hook-up.

I installed the jack this morning. Very fast delivery from etrailer. Seems to work well testing it on the lot. Suggested improvements. 1) I had to mount the jack sideways because of limited clearance so that is a good feature. But the jack had to face toward the right (looking from the front). This meant the spring loaded pull handle was under the trailer and took too much force for me to operate easily so I went with the standard pin. The mounting holes on the jack could be reconfigured so the jack faces left and the pull handle is forward in a sideways mount. 2) The power cord was barely long enough. It should be a foot longer. 3) The mount for the level has three holes and screws. It should have 4 so you can choose front/back or side/side leveling no matter how the jack is mounted. 269814

The jack has performed well. Had to replace the level which Bulldog provided under warranty. I would recommend the jack.

What a great buying experience. This is a Christmas gift, so I haven't installed it yet. Super fast shipping and the best price I could find online or in stores. 321381

I looked long & hard for a trailer jack that would allow the tailgate of my '14 Ram lower without inference. This is the answer that I came up with. The clearance dimension is as close as 1/2" between the tailgate & the front of the jack. etrailer personnel assisted with printed info, taking physical measurements, photos, etc. All in an effort, so I can make the best decision for my situation. The added feature of the auxiliary lights is great coupling/uncoupling in the dark or near dark. I have had this jack for approximately one year without any interruption of service. I could not even imagine cranking up & down a traditional jack. Great product choice. I would highly recommend this product. 475851

I bought this jack for my XLR 18HFS toy hauler. I needed to get the tongue up to reduce the ramp breakover angle to load my Road King. The trailer was equipped with a manual side crank unit, so the electric unit was a nice upgrade. The drop foot plus the stroke of the unit does what I needed. There is no end of stroke protection so the jack really jerks when it hits the ends. I simply marked the leg with a sharpie... I put arrows when I'm getting close and then a line when it's about an inch from full extend. I had to extend the hot wire a foot, but the motor is protected internally so no fuse is needed. My only other comment regards the built in level: I had to turn mine 90 degrees to clear the propane tanks but I wanted the level to remain fore-and-aft. I had to drill the holes myself to make this change. One last comment... my level blistered, or shattered, I'm assuming from heat. I had also purchased a cover (UF38-944020) that basically rests right on top of the level. I contacted etrailer and they sent me a new level. I have a foam insulator between the level and the cover now. 541013

The first unit I received was faulty, or so I thought. etrailer quickly sent me out a replacement which I installed and experienced the same issue as the first which was no power even when grounded to the trailer. I installed this on an aluminum frame enclosed trailer and regardless of using the star washers, grinding paint, running a wire from the bolt direct to the trailer frame I could not get the unit to ground without running a wire direct to the negative side of the onboard battery. It works fine now but just be aware if you happen to have an aluminum trailer it takes a little more work to make it work which would have been nice to know before wasting several hours trying different things and troubleshooting. etrailer's customer service was excellent. 576895

Put this on my passport 2810BH. Tongue weights of 500lbs to 1080lbs. More than adequate power and travel distance. Easily able to lift trailer up a bit to enable weight distr bars to be installed/removed. Tow with a 2018 Ram Rebel 1500. Am able to put tailgate down and it clears the jack by about 3/4”or so. If there’s any significant offset angle between truck and trailer that tailgate clearance goes to below zero and you may scrape the tailgate on the jack. Be careful. This is with the jack mounted “straight ahead”. If you rotate the jack 120 degrees and install it ‘sideways’ you’d have more clearance. It just looks weird. The “On/Off” paddle switch is for lights only. It doesn’t turn power off to the jack. So if you hardwire it to 12V system, the “Ext/Retract” paddle switch is always live. Lots of reviews say the sun will fade the green dyed fluid in the level on top. I just made a simple bag/cover for it from a tarp. Overall, very satisfied with the jack. If you’re still hand cranking, why? This makes your life SO much easier. 521096

Overall the product does exactly what it's intended for and works well. I however assumed that this would be a simple R&R for my camper and did very little installation research other that the video provided on etrailer' s website Sadly it did not fit. Not at all. I didn't take into account that have a double framed hitch toyhauler. The baseplate on the factory leg was a TRIANGLE.....this unit was ROUND. Also the primary shaft was thicker than stock and would not drop down into place I know modifying is frowned upon, but I found that ALL powered hitch legs I found have round mounting plates and it's not mentioned the leg tube is thicker than OEM? Since NOT having a power lift wasn't an option for this camper application...too heavy in the front when ATVS loaded to lift for setting the equalizer hitch tension bars, I proceeded to modify by cutting the rear rounded mounting base ... square. Took off about 1/2 inch. Then I took my metal Dremel sanding bit and increased the hitch leg hole diameter slightly. Took about 1 hr. Dropped it in. Wired it. Tested it. All good. If you can't post this I understand, but take note that some of your website descriptions may need to be enhanced. Thanks! 670110

I have installed the jack and it seems to work well, although I have not use extensively yet. For some reason the shaft diameter was just a hair larger than my previous jack (even though listed as the same size) and I have to grind out the access holes on my trailer. Otherwise installation was straightforward. the shipping from etrailer was extremely quick, and their customer service outstanding. 628479

I bought the Bulldog Powered trailer jack from etrailer because they not only have the best price, but amazing service, and shipping was rocket fast!! It took only three days to rural Colorado. I watched etrailers video of the jack being installed that showed details and dimensions so i could be sure it would fit my application. The videos are well made and super helpful to ensure I got the right jack for my trailer. Installation was a breeze, three bolts and one wire hookup and you're finished. The jack works great and the lights are handy. I will say that it is not particularly fast, it is geared low and goes up and down slowly, but it works great and does exactly what it is supposed to do. 608955

Works great when it works. I really like this Jack and wish I could give it 5 stars. I only gave it three stars because every time I use the Jack it blows a fuse when I try to hook up the w/d hitch. My trailer only ways 4k with 400 tongue weight which would make it a two star but it could be my wiring so I gave it a three, and don't expect the level to make it more than a couple of trips. It clouded up then broke within two months of install. 606040

How are you powering the jack? Bulldog tells me that an inline fuse isnt necessary if the jack is powered by a battery onboard the trailer as recommended.

Have this jack mounted on a 24' ATC Enclosed trailer. I haul a drag car, golf cart, spare parts and tools, roughly 9k lbs. Should have bought this jack 20 years ago. My current crank jack was getting worn out making it tough. Now I'm excited to disconnect the trailer. Works really well and doesn't seem to struggle at all. The level on top drained out but never really used it anyway. The quick release is a great option. 591795

I'm using it on my travel trailer, My old Lippert components jack (2 years old) was slowing down and took for ever to go up or down, I started bringing this huge heavy piece of wood to cut down the time it took to hook and unhook the trailer. Problem solved with the drop leg. plus is good looking. 556357


Comments

Its been a year, I like it so much when I traded my Imagine travel trailer I kept it, Now its installed in my new reflection 37 travel trailer, sits outside still works flawlessly and looks brand new. Recommend to others looking for a quality travel trailer jack, and the leg extension its a breeze to use specially on a pronounced incline spot.

Our Bulldog Jack arrived via UPS right on time. Easy install on our 2016 Jayco 28 RLS. This jack is super quiet. Our last jack (original equipment) only lasted 2 years. Looking forward to great performance by this Jack. Thanks etrailer for your great customer service. 542230

Do you have a question about this Camper Jack?


  • How to Charge a Trailer Battery for Use with a Bulldog Jack
  • What you described is actually the best solution! Connecting your battery to 12V Power wire from the 7-Way on your trailer is a great way to provide a maintenance charge on your battery to operate a Bulldog jack like part # BD500199. Mounting a battery inside a box like part # 329-HM300BKS inside your trailer will further help to keep your battery safe from the elements (although battery boxes do a pretty good job at that). Please note that the 12V power from your vehicle will not...

  • Can a Breakaway Battery be Used to Power an Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • If your breakaway system is powered by its own battery then it is likely a 5 amp hour battery which is not high enough to power an electric trailer jack, such as # BD500199, since they can draw about 30 amps under load. The other issue is that a breakaway system needs its own dedicated battery and should not be shared by other 12 volt accessories. If your trailer has a 7-Way trailer connector with functioning 12 volt circuit you could use electric jack # 3370093500 which plugs into a...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack for an A-Frame Trailer With 700 lb Tongue Weight
  • I recommend using the etrailer.com Electric Jack with a Footplate, part # EJ-3520-BBX, for A-Frames. This trailer jack is rated for 3,500 lbs so it will have more than enough power to lift and lower your tongue weight of 700 lbs. This trailer jack has a total lift of 25-1/8 inches and comes with an LED light that shines down towards the coupler to make connecting or disconnecting your trailer in the dark much easier. Another great feature about this electric trailer jack is that it has...

  • What Size Battery Should be Used to Power Bulldog Electric A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • A standard car battery will work to power Bulldog trailer jack # BD500199. The battery will need to have an amp hour rating greater than 30 amps which is the max current draw of most electric A-frame jacks. Other option is to use jack # 3370093500 or # UF38-944037 provided your tow vehicle has a 7-Way trailer connector with functioning 12 volt circuit. Both of these jacks are powered through the 7-Way so no battery is required on the trailer to run the jack. I have linked videos for...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack Compatible with Coachmen Clipper 17BHS Coupler
  • The Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3555 has the larger outer tube diameter as you mentioned. I recommend using a rotary tool like a Dremal to enlarge that hole. Another great option is the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack- 22" Lift - 4,000 lbs # BD500199. This has an outer diameter of 2-1/4 inches which is even slightly larger and this is actually the more standard measurement for most jacks. You will need the rotary tool to enlarge the hole for this one as well.

  • A-Frame Trailer Jack Recommendation with Bearings in Screw
  • The Bulldog Jack part # BD500199 that you referenced uses an acme type screw. My favorite powered jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87247 as it has bearings in the screw which allow it to operate quicker and smoother like what you mentioned. 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.

  • Recommended Cover for Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack # BD500199
  • For a cover to use on the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack # BD500199 referenced in your question, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Protective Cover for Electric A-Frame Jacks # UF38-944020. This will easily slip over the jack and can be secured using the drawstring. This cover measures 12 inches x 14-1/2 inches. I have attached a video demonstration of the cover for you to check out.

  • Comparing of the Atwood and Bulldog Electric Trailer Jacks
  • The Atwood Power Trailer Jack with Cover and Foot, item # AT81068, has a lift speed of 15 inches per minute. It also has a lift range of 14 inches. This jack has been around for a very long time and is very dependable. The wiring on this jack is slightly larger than the wiring on the Bulldog model. It is rated for 3,000 pounds. The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14 inch Lift - 4,000 lbs, # BD500199, has a lift range of 14 inches, the only other added feature...

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack for a Forest River Rockwood Roo 23SS
  • You are correct in that the Fastec Electric Trailer Jack part FIC 3500 that you have now is rated for 3,500 lbs. It also offers up to an 18" lift. You can certainly use a 4,000 lb jack in place of this and for that, I recommend using the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack part # BD500199 on your Forest River Rockwood Roo 23SS. This jack offers up to 22" of lift and has an additional 500 lbs of capacity. The added capacity will extend the life of your jack because it does not have to work...

  • Which Capacity of Powered Trailer Jack for Keystone Outback 277RL
  • Powered jacks are rated by their lift capacity. According to the specs I found online, the 277RL has an unloaded tongue weight of around 870 lbs. For quickest and most reliable operation, you'll want to choose the powered jack with a larger available lift capacity. In this instance, overkill is a good thing. I'd recommend the Husky Brute, part # HT87247. The jack has a 4500 lb lift capacity, but having a higher than needed capacity will mean a faster lift and a much longer life for the...

  • Can an A-Frame Electric Trailer Jack be Powered through a 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • Technically, you could attach an electric jack, such as # BD500199, power wire to the 12 volt circuit on a 7-Way trailer side connector. If looking at the back of the 7-Way where the wires attach it is in the 1 o'clock position. But the vehicle side trailer wiring may not be rated high enough to power the jack properly (30 amps). If other things on the trailer are also drawing power from the 12 volt circuit then it could overload it. You would also want to keep the truck running so the...

The 5-year warranty and excellent customer reviews gives you peace of mind that you are getting a quality product that will last. Some other added perks to this jack are easy access to...

  • Troubleshooting Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack Will Retract but Wont Extend
  • The problem you describe sounds like the gears in the motor have some teeth that have broken. This is caused from over extending/retracting the jack. The motor can retract the jack foot because when it's retracting, the jack isn't under load. There aren't any user replaceable parts in an A-Frame trailer jack like the # LC285318 you referred, so your best bet would be to replace the jack. I'd recommend your Father-in-Law go with the highest capacity jack available. Overkill is good...

  • Troubleshooting Bulldog Electric Trailer Jack with Dead Battery
  • The Bulldog 4,000 pound Powered Drive Trailer Jack # BD500199 runs off the of a battery on the trailer or directly from the tow vehicle's battery depending on how you have it setup. If it's off the trailer's battery then you charge it by plugging your trailer into your tow vehicle and it charges from the vehicle's battery.

  • Troubleshooting Malfunctioning Bulldog Power Jack # BD500199
  • I spoke with my contact at Bulldog, and he provided several possible causes for the problem you are experiencing. The jack grounds via its attachment point to the trailer. In case there is excessive paint between the jack and the trailer frame, running a separate ground from the jack mounting flange to the trailer could possibly solve this problem. Make sure that the jack mounting flange is making direct metal to metal contact, and that there is no corrosion between the two that would...

  • Electric Trailer Jack Function in Extreme Cold Conditions
  • The Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack # BD500199 will be impacted by extreme cold. The mechanical parts will all work but you have to account for the grease freezing temperature which is normally somewhere in the negative degrees Fahrenheit and the impact the cold will have on the battery used to power the jack. The jack itself will function past the conditions of the grease used to maintain it and the battery used to power it. The grease will have a temperature range on it to give...

  • Can The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500199 be Installed in a 90 Degree Orientation
  • There is no reason why you could not turn the jack at a 90 degree angle to gain more clearance. Due to the configuration of the holes in the mounting flange, you might need to drill new holes in your trailer tongue to mount the jack in that configuration. The motor housing cannot be repositioned on the shaft. Bulldog tells me that the edge of the motor housing is 1 inch away from the side of the jack tube, as shown in the photo I edited for you.

Does the problem you describe always occur when the jack as at a particular height? If so, the jack tube might be slightly bent. The bend would cause the jack to bind once it reached a certain height. Manually operating the jack would extend or retract the jack past the point where the tube is bent, at which time the motor would be able to move...

  • Yes. The Atwood Footplate is confirmed to fit your jack. However, they've both been discotinued, but I have linked the page to our electric jacks with that 4000 lb weight capacity so you can see other options we do have available. For a great quality jack with a drop leg footplate, I recommend the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 14" Lift - 4,000 lbs - Black # BD500199. This is an easy to use electric jack with all the components you are seeking.

  • Quiet Electric Trailer Jack with Remote Operation for Use in Levitation Illusion
  • I think the Ultra-Fab Phoenix # UF38-944055 is going to be your best option. It uses a ball bearing type of system rather than a screw and nut design like most jacks. These means less friction and thus less noise. It also comes with a wireless remote key fob that would probably work better than a foot pedal would and is easier to conceal. It will also give you a little more flexibility as to how the illusion is done since there would not have to be a cable and switch attached to the jack....

  • Will Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack, # BD500199 Work on a 4,700 Pound Travel Trailer
  • The total lift capacity of the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack, # BD500199, is 4,000 pounds. If mounted on the tongue of the A-Frame trailer, the tongue weight cannot exceed 4,000 pounds. If you do not know the tongue weight of your travel trailer, it is typically 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. For a trailer weighing 4,700 pounds, the tongue weight would be 470 to 705 pounds. The jack mounts on a standard A-frame trailer, most of which use the same bolt pattern for...
