Lippert Components Camper Jacks - LC285318

  • A-Frame Jack
  • 3500 lbs
  • Bolt-On
  • Lippert Components
  • Electric Jack

Powered A-frame jack has 2 toggle switches for operation. Jack has a retracted height of 10-3/4", an extended height of 28-3/4", and 18" of travel. Includes a manual override handle.


Features:

  • Electric jack lets you raise and lower your A-frame trailer quickly and easily
  • 2 Toggle switches on the front of the housing let you operate the jack
    • On/off switch controls the light
    • Extend/retract switch controls up and down movement
  • Helical-cut gears with angled teeth gradually mesh for quiet, efficient operation
  • LED light illuminates at a downward angle to help you focus on your coupler
  • Emergency crank (included) allows you to manually operate jack if needed
  • Heavy-gauge steel construction ensures durability and strength
  • Black powder coat finish resists rust and corrosion
  • Durable, textured-housing prevents chips and cracks
  • Easy bolt-on installation
    • Wires to 12-volt power source


Specs:

  • Bracket height:
    • Retracted: 10-3/4"
    • Extended: 28-3/4"
  • Lift: 18"
  • Outer tube diameter: 2-1/4"
  • Inner tube diameter: 2"
  • Footplate diameter: 5-1/2"
  • Motor voltage: 12 volts
    • Power consumption: 30 amps
  • Lift capacity: 3,500 lbs
  • 1-Year limited warranty


This jack will take the work out of lifting and lowering your trailer. The 30-amp motor ensures trouble-free operation and consistent power with the flip of a switch - no need for a crank. It also has helical-cut gears, which have angled teeth that mesh together clearly. This allows for quieter, more efficient operation than a jack that uses a standard Acme screw.


To ensure great performance even at night, this jack also comes with a front-facing light that houses 3 LEDs. The light is directed at a downward angle allowing for easy deployment and retraction of the jack in low-light settings. The unit also comes with a manual crank handle in case you lose power.


This jack can be bolted or welded onto your A-frame coupler, or it can sit in a brace behind the coupler. As with other Lippert jacks, it is constructed of powder coated steel to ensure that it will resist rust and corrosion and hold up well to the elements. The housing on the jack protects the internal components, and it has a durable, UV-resistant coating that resists chips, cracks, and fading.


You always want to be sure when purchasing a tongue jack that the jack capacity at least matches your trailer's tongue weight (TW). Your trailer's TW should be around 10 percent to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight (GTW), which is the weight of your trailer when it's fully loaded. So if you have a 5,000-lb trailer you would want a jack that can support at least 500 lbs to 750 lbs.

The bolt pattern matched my trailer so it was very easy. No skill needed. I soldered a connection on and hooked it directly into the battery. I had to drill a hole for my foot extension. So far so good. 23 foot travel trailer. 657660

well I have taken numerous camping trips with this jack and so far I am very pleased. one note is that if you don't have a dedicated ground wire you will need to make one on the camper or the jack will not operate. I figured that out right off the bat. It does move fairly slow, but hey I guess you don't want it moving too fast or you could over shoot your limits that can make the jack blow the 30 amp fuse. Yes I would highly recommend this jack. I have noticed that this jack is installed on a lot of brand new campers at the factory, so it must be a good jack. Highly recommend!!! 505078

Very well! After numerous camping trips the jack has performed flawlessly!

It will be a while before I can install. Winter storm coming. The order was filled in a timely manner and I relied on the company from a previous order for a brake controller/cable to fit my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The factory packaging however, was insufficient to restrain and prevent the triangular mounting flange on the lower end from punching through the cardboard packaging. The result was minor scratching and removal of paint on a corner tip of the flange. There was no evidence of anything in the package to restrain the lower end from traveling vertically up and down toward the area where it punched through. So..I'd blame it on Lippert for insufficient product package restraints. 487691


Comments
The Jack initially worked fine with the exception of the LED light. I reported my trouble shooting information to etrailer pinpointing the LED board. You were able to have a new board sent to me for replacement and everything worked well all summer after the replacement. The technical guidance you provided on how to open and access the case was first rate, but in this case, I needed to buy a longer screwdriver for the deeply recessed screws.

Love it! No more hand cranking. Installation was a breeze. The trailer tongue has nut plates so it was a easy swap. No extra wrench to loosen the bolts. I just crimped on a connecter on the end of the power wire, ran the wire through the factory clamps of the camper and put it on the positive side of the battery. Done! I kind of wish it had a slow and fast speed but no biggie. I really like the LED light on the front with its own switch. It adds to the “wow” factor. Thanks again etrailer! I never shop anywhere else. 801459

While I researched the large selection of trailer jacks on etrailer before making my purchase, what I tended to see (by a LARGE margin) at RV campgrounds was this product. So I bought it....quick shipping and super easy installation...in time for our latest camping adventure. It worked flawlessly on our Minnie and was a nice change from having to manually lift and lower my RV off/on my truck tow ball. I really liked the gearing as it was the perfect operating speed for me. 720885

I reached out to Lippert and they said many people have used impact tools on them instead of the manual handle that comes with it and have damaged that part but they don't yet have a fix for that as it wasn't designed for that use. At this time there is no replacement available, so you would need to replace the entire jack. I've linked the...

Jacks may not function with less than 12 volts. Those contacts are located, respectively, at the 5:00 and 11:00 positions on the plug as you look at it. Please refer to the linked photo.

This jack uses the Replacement Jack Foot Pad # LC165253 which fits with the 2" diameter inner tube. If your jack has the same inner tube diameter then you want this part number over the part # LC405217 that has a 1-1/2" tube diameter.

  • How to Determine Correct Electric A-Frame Jack for Travel Trailer
    The correct jack will have a capacity that will surpass your trailer's loaded tongue weight, which is typically between 10 and 15 percent of the loaded trailer's weight. I looked up your 2013 Jayco Jay Feather Ultra Lite Travel Trailer and from my research it looks like your Jayco has a 4,750 lb GVWR so any one of our A-frame jacks would work in terms of weight capacity.

The Husky Brute Super Foot Fold-Up Jack Foot # HT31610 will fit the jack and provides an extension of 7 inches. This is the largest extension we have available for this jack.

  • Lippert Power Tongue Trailer Jack Switch Replacement Recommendation
    For a Lippert Power Tongue Jack the correct replacement switch is the Replacement Extend / Retract Switch Assembly for Lippert Components Power Tongue Jack # LC226023. It's not super uncommon for these to go out over time so most likely this will get your jack working again. Especially since it will raise but not lower and raising would draw more amperage than lowering.

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Power Tongue Jack LED Lights Staying On With Switch Turned Off
    Since this is a brand new jack you shouldn't be experiencing problems. I spoke with my contact at Lippert who said he hasn't heard of this being a very common issue and your best bet is a bad ground or a new switch. It is also possible that you could get the unit swapped out for a new jack if it is still under warranty. I recommend checking into that first. If the LED lights on your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 are still illuminating when the switch is off then you either...

  • Troubleshooting LED Light on Lippert Power Tongue Jack LC285318
    I have to agree with you that it sounds like something is wrong with your Lippert powered tongue jack since the courtesy light should go off completely when the switch is in the off position. I suspect that there is trapped water inside the switch that is both maintaining a connection even when the switch is off and also preventing full power from reaching the light when it is switched on. You can try removing the cover/switch panel to allow that moisture to dissipate. This will best...

If the lights continue to stay on then it would be worth double checking the connections to make sure they look good before replacing the switch with part # LC226018.

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack Mounting Support Plate For Standard 3 Inch On Center Mount
    The Lippert Components # LC285318 uses a standard 3 inch on center bolt pattern. You will most likely need to drill some new holes in your coupler to allow for the standard mounting when replacing your trailer jack. I recommend the Bottom Support Plate for 2-1/4" OD A-Frame Jacks - 5,000 lbs # JSP-100 if you are concerned about the stability in that location with the additional holes.

  • Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Will Not Retract
    If the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack with Footplate part # LC285318 will not retract then the first thing you will want to do is make sure there is power reaching the jack and it is properly grounded. If you use a circuit tester at the power wire just before it enters the jack that should give you a good idea of whether or not you have a dead battery or there is a short on the power wire. The ground is not so easy to test so I just recommend removing it, sanding down the mounting surface,...

  • Options for Replacing Lippert Power Drive Tongue Jack 1817941
    It sounds like you're looking for a replacement internal component for an older/discontinued Lippert electric jack like model number 1817941. According to Lippert, the internal components are not serviceable on these types of jacks, which means they are not available separately or even have a part number assigned to them. When something like that fails, it's just safer to replace the entire unit as other integral parts tend to go soon after. The only solution is to replace your...

If this jack is less than a year old, it may still be under Lippert's warranty, so that might be something to look into before replacing any parts.

You should be fine adding your own screw, though be careful doing it so as not to damage any part of the jack.

  • Can Head On Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Be Rotated to Gain Clearance For Tailgate
    I do have a solution for you, however just the head itself on the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 cannot be rotated. To gain clearance between it and the tailgate on your truck your best option is to simply use a longer ball mount. Something like the Curt # D-26, which measures 12-5/8" long from the hitch pin hole to the ball hole, would work well to increase space between the truck and trailer connection so that you can lower your tailgate.

  • Availability of Replacement Leg for Atwood Power Jack AT80718
    The leg on your Atwood Power Jack AT80718 is not replaceable and since this jack is now discontinued by the manufacturer, the only solution is to replace it with a new jack. For a comparable jack, my expert recommendation is the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500188. It features the same 3,500 lb capacity as the AT80718 but offers you a 22 inch lift which is a few more (3) inches than your current jack. It has a retracted bracket height of 9-3/4 inches and will work perfectly...

    On Lippert power tongue jack # LC285318 the lens is sandwiched in between the lower cover and the inner guts of the jack. So you would have to take off the cover. The screws that hold the cover on go up from the bottom. You will need a long and thin screwdriver to reach them.

    If the original LED courtesy light on your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 is damaged or defective, you can replace it with the Replacement LED Light Module # LC226027. To replace it, you would basically remove the fuse, remove the top cover, disconnect the black wire, disconnect both switch wires, replace the LED light plate (module) and reassemble. I have included all the detailed steps in the attached photo, directly from the Lippert Service Manual.

  • Replacement Light Switch for Lippert Power Tongue Jack
    If you have the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack part # LC285318 then the correct replacement light switch for this is the Replacement On/Off Switch Assembly for Lippert Components Power Tongue Jack part # LC226018. The Replacement Light Switch for Electric Trailer Jack part # EJ-3520-LSW will not work.

  • Can Head of Lippert Electric Trailer Jack LC285318 Be Rotated 90 Degrees to Clear Lowered Tailgate
    The mounting plate on the Lippert electric jack # LC285318 is designed in such a way that it would not line up quite right if you turned the jack (the head by itself cannot be turned). The easiest solution to this problem is to use a longer ball mount so there is plenty of room to lower the tailgate. I have included a link to our ball mount main page for you. Compare the length of your existing ball mount with ones we carry with the same rise/drop and capacity to find one that is longer.
