Video Transcript for Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack with detachable footplate, offering 18 inches of lift and a 2,500-pound capacity.The part number is UF38-944017, so this Ultra-Fab jack is designed to make hooking up your trailer and disconnecting it much easier. Basically, when connected to a 12-volt power source, whether that's your truck or your battery, at the flip of a switch, we're able to raise and lower a jack to whatever height we need.To operate the jack, we've got a toggle switch located right here on the bottom. It's very easy to find, it's got the rubber case around it to give a superior moisture resistance. We don't have to worry about things getting inside. The entire jack itself has a .. it's almost like a crinkle, a powder coat finish to it.It offers a really nice appearance, so it's also very resistant to any kind of scratching or chipping.

Something else I really like about this jack is that we have a full metal housing, the motor case and everything. So, even if it does get bumped through something, you're loading something up and accidentally hit it, you won't have to worry about that case cracking like we see with some of the plastic housing jacks, but not only is that powder coat finish gonna give us a good-looking jack, it also is very, very good at resisting corrosion.The same can be said for the inner tube and the footplate, which have the clear zinc coat. Now, the diameter of the footplate is six inches from one edge to the other. What this does is it spreads the energy of this jack out over a greater area. It's gonna prevent it from sinking down in the ground, whether you're in mud, gravel, anything like that, the softer surfaces, you won't have to worry about.

Right here on the back, you'll see we've got the toggle switch to turn our lights on and off.These are positioned to the side and they have about a 180-degree kind of a range to them. So, they're gonna come in really handy with weight distribution set ups, trying to get those attached, and even can shed some light down on your coupler when you're trying to attach that. Now, in the overall brightness spectrum of them, I'd say they're about middle of the road. They're certainly brighter than what we see on some jacks, but there are other jacks out there that can be a lot more intense. Now, in the event of a power failure, whether that's coming from our truck or maybe a dead battery on our trailer, we'll still be able to operate the jack just by removing the cap on top, gonna use the provided 9/16 socket that goes on top.Then, we can operate it either up or down to get it connected.

Let's see. We've got a rubber o-ring right around that cap to prevent any moisture in going down this area. Also, at each seam, you're gonna have a nice rubber seal. This is gonna protect the internal components from any type of moisture or dust getting inside there, ensuring our jack's gonna work well for a long time. Now, when sliding down our cover there, you can see you've got access right into that screw, that way we can keep it properly lubricated.

We won't have to worry about corrosion there. Now, with our jack in the highest position, we're gonna have a bracket height of around 27 inches.Now, to ensure you have room to mount your jack, we're also gonna tell you how high it is from the bracket to the top. Looks like that comes in just under 19 inches, so you just wanna make sure you've got clearance. Something else to keep in mind, not only from the jack to be mounted forward and back, but we can turn that mounted side to side for some additional clearance. Now, to begin your installation, of course, you'll need your old jack to be removed. To do that, we just use jack stands to support the weight of the trailer. Of course, you'll want it properly chucked. At that point, we'll take the jack, gonna drop it right down in the opening.So, this has a two-inch tube, so you wanna make sure your opening is at least that big. It'll also work out if you have the two and a quarter inch opening. So, to mount our jack, we're gonna use our existing hardware. If you're adding a jack to a trailer that didn't originally have one, you wanna be sure you're using a three-eighths diameter bolt. You want that to be grade five. Our trailer is threaded, so we're just gonna use a washer and a lock washer. If yours isn't, you may need nuts to go on the bottom. So, to mount the jack, traditionally, you're just gonna have the motor forward.There's holes to accommodate that, but you can also rotate it. If you need a little bit more clearance or if you don't have the room back here, that can help out a little bit, just get our holes lined up there and get our bolts installed in all three locations.Once we've got them all three started, we can snug them down within torque into the specifications we can find listed in our instructions.Now, as far as wiring the jack, you've got a couple options. In the instructions, it's gonna tell you take the black lead to the negative terminal on your battery. The red lead should go to the positive terminal on your battery. You do have a fuse holder that's gonna go on that red lead, you want that connected at the end of the wire, right at your connection.Now, this trailer doesn't have an on-board battery. So, we're gonna be using the vehicle's source for power. This just means we're gonna run it through a junction box, apply it to the negative and positive side of the junction box and still use the fuse holder to keep everything protected. Now, I like to use a few zip ties and you can see, we're just gonna zip tie our wire off to the jack.The service port we talked about is here, so you wanna make sure that sleeve can still slide up and down. So, don't zip tie too close to that. Now, to attach the fuse holder to your red wirek . just wanna trim off our excess. We're gonna use a heat-shrink butt connector, part number is DW05745, gonna slide on.Now, depending on where you're batteries are located, you may need to extend your wires to get there. You can use this same technique to do that, just be sure to use a minimum of a 10-gage wire. For attaching the fuse holder . just gonna trim that off. For the junction box, I need a little bit longer lead. For your battery, you may cut it square.It's gonna depend on your application, of course, and we'll strip that back. We'll attach it to our wire and then, the other end's gonna go to our power source. Now, we can apply some heat to get that shrink down. We can use a lighter, we can use a mini torch or a heat gun, just be careful not to overheat them. Now, depending on your application, typically, you'll wanna use a ring terminal to make your connection to your power source. This is a one-eighth inch ring terminal. They're available on our website at various sizes. So, just depending on either the post on your battery or your junction box, choose one that's appropriate.Once we have that hooked up, we're ready to install our footplate. We'll do that just by sliding the pin through and secure that with our clip. Now, since this is pre-drilled, you can also use a drop leg or a wheel here if you want a little bit faster operation. You wanted to drop the leg down or be able to move it a little bit. Both of those are available options that'll fit right on and that'll complete our look at the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack with detachable footplate, part number UF38-944017.

I just received this jack and installed it in about 1/2 hour. It works great and will be taking my trailer out for a camping trip soon so I will test it out then. 259973

This jack works awesome! It came with all the hardware to install the jack myself including a socket! I've had it a year and its never failed me! Great product would recommend it to anyone! 560950

by:

Extremely easy to install. Heavier material and better made than the tongue jack that came on my trailer. So far very happy with the product and think it will be easy to operate when traveling. Shipping was to be in 5 days and received product in two days. Great! Cover for the jack seems to be well constructed with a draw string closure. Will buy from this company again in the future and will recommend them to my camping friends and family. Great customer service and friendly person on the phone. 575798

The fit was flawless and it handles my Flagstaff Mac with ease. It is a pop-up and not a huge load, but it saves a 70 yr. old a lot of cranking. Install was a breeze. Love it when items are as described. 6 day delivery over a holiday long week-end. Thanks for the great service. 269102

This unit was purchased to replace an UltraFab that I bought in 2007; that would mean my first unit lasted over 12 years. The old unit was still running, but the motor had a couple of dead spots and I got tired of bumping it to get it moving. I consider anything electrical that sits outside for this long, and still technically works, pretty decent quality. The new unit looks very similar to the old one, except the lights are now LED and there is a grease hole on the shaft. The addition of a grease point is great because my old unit could not be easily greased (thus, never was). This should extend the life of the new unit. Installation was easy, except the unit would not power up reliably. The issue appears to be the fuse holder supplied with the kit. The fuse was too loose in the holder and the power connection was weak. To solve the problem (I hope) I took the fuse holder apart and stretched the internal spring. This seemed to fix the problem. I hope this unit gives me the service my last one did. I bet it will. 615415

etrailer had the best price. Shipped to me in a few days. Took about 1 hour to convert from the 4th bad liepert smart jack. Works fast and easy. As I read on other reviews it is "wobbly" side to side compared to the old jack but rating are equal. Put on my enclosed ATC car trailer. Have not yet loaded the car - I think that should only be done when "hooked up". Check with me in a few months after I have used it a bunch. 606067

by:

Low price but high quality. Works faster than most Jack's out there. My only concern is the length of the shaft. I need to use a 6 inch block under it. Works great. I now have 2 of them. One on my enclosed cargo trailer and one on my 26 ft travel trailer. Highly recommend. It 561752

Well I guess its been a year since purchasing the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack as per the email I received from etrailer. I have been very happy with the purchase, this is so much better than cranking a handle!! Installation was very easy too. I liked this one since it has a zerk fitting for lubing the jack where others didn't seem to have that. All in all, I would purchase this jack again and through etrailer.com too. 561195

After one year this is still going strong. We replaced the original, different brand, on our trailer with this one after ours bent. I did many searches and ended up going with this one based on others reviews. You will not be disappointed in it! 529296

I received your product in tack. Installed the tongue jack and it worked fine as it was claimed it would . Have not taken it out on a run yet. I'm going to Red River, NM. this week 5-21-2018. Will be out having fun in the out doors. If the jack preforms well you will see a five star rating. Thanks for the videos that made the change from my tongue jack to yours. Helpful. 511157



- UF38-944017
by:

This seems like a good jack. My MAIN complaint would be that in the box came the jack and a socket and the fuse wire. The jack probably SHOULD have had 3 new bolts for attaching it. And at least the terminal ends for the electrical connection to your battery 493495



- UF38-944017
by:

Received as stated, very easy hook up, works great, hope the longevity is as good, did not need the fuse connection as camper already has 30AMP FUSE. 491036

Mechanical installation was very easy. Removed the three 9/16 bolts from the existing crank and installed the new one. The hardest part was the electrical connection. The new jack had 10 gauge wire and the trailers wiring was 16 gauge at best. Very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to others! 451629

I have ordered items from etrailer before and have never had a problem with this company. They follow up on your orders and answer any questions you have. I just purchased this tongue jack and got it in three days. This is a well built jack and works fine,although it is a little noisy it performs well. It is weather proof and has lights on both sides. I have had one just like this for years and worked fine. Just did not do maintenance on it like I should have, but will do it now. I would recommend this to anyone. 439607

I ordered a new switch for my existing jack not knowing if it was the switch that was bad on my jack or the motor. I also ordered a new jack expecting the worse. I replaced the switch first and lo and behold it fixed my existing jack. I contemplated sending the new jack that I now didn't need back to etrailer but I have decided to keep the new jack in the box and have it in our camper as a spare. I appreciated the prompt delivery of the items ordered. 432613

Great jack - haven't hooked up the electronics, but it's been great. The little rubber cover over the manual jack nut drive cracked, but I assume that is because I keep using it repeatedly (more than it was designed for). I wish it had a zerk fitting or two on the jack tube, just to keep it from seizing up in the future. 426089

The service from etrailer was beyond excellent. They didn't have the jack I ordered in stock but made every effort to find one.

I did add a ground wire from the base of the jack to the trailer ground for insurance purposes. 391371

Do you have a question about this Camper Jack?


  • Determining the Correct Electric Jack for Jayco 22FB Trailer
  • There are no obvious cons to having an electric jack as opposed to a manual jack and most people prefer an electric jack due to its ease of use. As for what electric jack you need for your Jayco 22FB, that is going to depend on the diameter of the jack hole; it will need to accept the outer tube diameter of the jack. For example, the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 has a 2" outer tube diameter, the etrailer Electric Jack # EJ-3520-BBX has a 2-1/4" outer tube diameter and...

  • We have the replacements you need for your # UF38-944017 A-Frame Jack. The fuse holder you need is part # UF17-101265, and the fuse is a 30-amp Slow Blow fuse, part # UF17-101066. I have attached a drawing that shows where the fuse holder is wired for your jack you can check out.

  • Replacement Shear Pin for Ultra-Fab Ultra 3502 Powered Tongue Jack
  • Powered trailer jacks allow use of a manual crank for emergency purposes (like a power loss) and some can be used with a drill attachment and a cordless drill. But an impact wrench puts too much stress into the mechanism and this type of tool should not be used on a jack. We do offer a replacement shear pin # UF38-751025 that fit jack model Ultra 3502 for serial numbers up to 010150 (which were made before 2010).

  • Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack Wont Extend But Retracts
  • It sounds like the issue is in the switch or the wiring of your Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack - 18" Lift - 3,500 lbs # UF38-944017. Since it retracts, we know the motor is working in one direction. These motors have a polarity so power on one wire runs the motor in one direction and power in on the other wire runs the motor in the other direction. I suggest removing the switch and connecting the wires manually to power individually. It it extends, the switch is bad. If not, the wiring...

  • I have some possible solutions for you. First, one option is the Bike Bunk, # CC-275. It mounts to the front of the trailer A-Frame up over the propane tank. The only catch is that it is rated for 100 pounds and the bike rack used has to be rated for use on a trailer. The combined weight of the bike rack and bikes will likely exceed the 100 pound capacity so you would have to put 1 or 2 bikes somewhere else. Another option is to use a tailgate pad such as # S64760 to hold the bikes in...

  • Troubleshooting Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack
  • The Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 shouldn't blow a fuse from retracting too far. The fact that you can't use the manual crank to free up the jack shows that something internally has been damaged. This should fall under your warranty because this came with a 2 year manufacturer warranty that 6 time use should fall well within.

  • Replacement for Powered Tongue Jack That Spins But Does Not Raise or Lower
  • If your trailer's powered tongue jack's motor is operating but the jack does not raise or lower, then it is likely that the gearbox or main screw is damaged. There may be a repair kit available for your brand and model of jack; you can let me know the brand and part number and include a photo to let us check, if you like. You can also simply bolt on a new electric a-frame jack. You can see all of our electric a-frame trailer jacks on the linked page. It is best to choose a jack that...

  • Can a Caster Wheel be Used on Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • While you could put a wheel on an electric jack such as # UF38-944017 the problem is that the wheels are rated much lower than the jacks so the jack would be limited to the capacity of the wheel. What I recommend is to use a trailer dolly such as # MT70225. We use these around here sometimes to move trailers around. The 1-7/8 inch ball ensures that any coupler size will fit (doesn't have to be exact because the trailer isn't being towed). Another option is a jack and trailer mover in...

  • Recommended Replacement Trailer Battery for Powering Ultra-Fab Electric Tongue Jack UF38-944017
  • To power an electric trailer jack (or a winch for that matter) generally the higher the amperage rating of the battery the better. Jacks, like winches, use more power to operate as the load increases. The Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 can be powered by any full-size 12V battery (but not a smaller one such as that on a lawn mower). My contact at Ultra-Fab recommended you ask for a Series 31 type battery at your local store. These are a hybrid type that are not rated...

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack
  • Thank you for your photo showing your A-frame trailer's jack mount. This does appear to be an industry-standard set-up. The Husky # HT87247, which has a round mounting flange, will fit. At most you might have to use a drill bit to slightly open up one of the holes to allow the hardware to pass through. Jacks, like winches and other similar items, tend to last longest when they are used well below their absolute maximum capacity. If you have a trailer with tongue weight of up to 1000-lbs,...

  • Replacement Powered Jack Recommendation for Keystone Springdale with Broken Jack
  • Since nearly all A-frame trailer jacks don't have replacement motors your best option will be to replace the entire jack. The Husky Brute jacks like part # HT87247 are my favorite to recommend as they have bearings in the screw of the jack so that the jack can operate smoother and faster than the competition. This jack also has lifting capacity of 4,500 lbs so it would be more than enough for your Keystone Springdale.

  • Replacement Jack for Lippert Electric Tongue Jack LG-181794
  • For a Lippert jack model 181794 a replacement manual crank nut is not available. I checked with my contact at Lippert to confirm. You will need to replace your jack with a complete new one, I am sorry to say. To help you select a new one I have linked an article on jacks as well as our main page for such items. For an electric tongue jack with the same 3500-lb weight rating and the same 18-inch lift as yours I suggest the Ultra-Fab # UF38-944017.

  • How to Determine Weight Capacity of Electric Trailer Tongue Jack for Camper
  • You'll need to chose a jack whose capacity is greater than the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the camper. Going with a powered jack whose capacity is much greater than the tongue weight of the camper is recommended because the jack won't need to work so hard and will therefore last longer. Also, if you're using a weight distribution system on the camper, sometimes you'll want to use the trailer jack to also pick up the rear of the vehicle to put slack into the system so...

  • Repair Parts for Over-Extended Ultra-Fab # UF38-944017 Powered Tongue Jack That Won't Retract
  • If your Ultra-Fab # UF38-944017 Powered Trailer Tongue Jack's motor still operates but the jack leg does not retract then odds are that one or more gear components in the jack are damaged. The motor itself is probably okay. We do offer a range of repair/replacement parts for this jack. I have linked a diagram showing an exploded view along with a parts listing. In some cases the jack may not be repairable, depending on the exact damage to it. You can inspect the gearing components in...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Tongue Jack for 2014 Winnebago Minnie 1801FB
  • For your 2014 Winnebago Minnie 1801FB, I recommend the Electric Jack w/ Footplate - A-Frame - 25-1/8" Lift - 3.5K - Black # EJ-3520-BBX. This jack is a great option for your trailer and will not only give you the electric motor so you won't need to crank, but also will give you a drop leg for even faster function. I've attached a couple videos to further assist. If you like the look of the Ultra-Fab # UF38-944017 you asked this question from, that is also a really nice option. That...

  • Troubleshooting Powered Trailer Jack that Doesn't Always Power Up and Down
  • Make sure the main ground wire on your trailer harness is connected to a clean metal surface of your trailer frame. It sounds like your jack has a weak ground and because of that it doesn't want to operate consistently. By improving the ground of your trailer harness the jack should start to function normally again.

  • Does Ultra-Fab Powered A-Frame Trailer Jack have a Manual Crank
  • There isn't a hand crank for Ultra-Fab trailer jack # UF38-944017 but instead it uses a 9/16 inch deep well socket that you could use with a ratchet to manually crank the jack should you need to. I have included a link to a video review of this jack for you.

  • Can an Ultra-Fab Electric Trailer Jack that has Been Over Extended be Repaired
  • The way that the electric trailer jack # UF38-944017 works is using an ACME screw and a nut. The nut is fixed and the screw goes up and down in the nut. At the end of the screw the metal is twisted, smashed, or otherwise purposely cross threaded to prevent the screw from just coming out and the load dropping. If you try to raise a jack with this type of design too far it damages that nut and the screw. Those parts cannot be replaced. You will need to replace the whole jack. This is...

  • 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 Wire Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 on 2-Horse Trailer
  • The Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 that you referenced is best installed on your A-frame horse trailer with a separate 12V power source, a secondary battery on the trailer. The tow vehicle 7-way's 12V feed is designed to provide a "trickle charge" to maintain a charged trailer battery while you're driving but not to charge a depleted battery or to operate a device like a powered tongue jack. That 12V feed is fine for operating trailer lights but not for a current-hungry motor....

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation that Doesn't Break When Over Retracted or Extended
  • The circuit breaker of the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 is designed to prevent the motor from drawing too much amperage and damaging itself. If you were to lower the jack all the way and then keep holding the button you eventually would trip the breaker, but more importantly you would potentially damage the threads of the internal screw of the jack which would permanently break it. I would not advise you rely on the breaker to or the threads bottoming out to let you...
