Quickly and easily raise, level and support your fifth-wheel trailer or RV with this powerful pair of jacks. Dual, high-speed electric motors operate independently for precise leveling and are capable of 9" of lift per minute.
Note: Landing gear is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight, not to support the full GVWR of your trailer. Do not use landing gear to lift your trailer or RV during tire changes or service work because doing so will exceed the capacity of the landing legs.

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear Set. Now this unit is perfect for raising, leveling, and supporting your fifth wheel trailer or RV. It's going to feature the dual, electric jacks that elevate and lower with the flip of a switch, so no more hand cranking. Each motor has its own toggle switch for independent operation and accurate leveling. This right here is your control panel. It's a really nice design.
I really like the way it looks. It's got your operations for both the left jack, and right jack, so really nice design. All the wiring's there on the back. Now the unit comes with a detailed wiring diagram as well. That way you can easily get everything connected correctly. Now there's going to be two different settings for the unit.
You're going to have high-speed and high-torque. You can choose whichever setting you want for your application. You'll do that during the wiring part of your installation according to those included instructions. I also want to mention that the orientation of the motor can be flipped to best fit the space available for your application. Each jack is going to come with a drop leg. Now a drop leg is going to increase overall extension for maximum adjustability.
Your jack has an outer tube, an inner tub, and a drop leg. It's also going to have the spring-loaded pull pins right here. Now you always want to make sure these are facing out or to the side of the trailer. That way they're always easily accessible. Those are included.
They install on there very easily, and those spring-loaded pull pins allow for fast and easy operation of that drop leg. The unit is also going to feature heavy gauge, self-leveling foot plates for excellent stability. Nice, large design, so it's really going to help spread out the applied weight. Especially on softer surfaces to help prevent sinking. That self-leveling design means that it has the ability to tilt a little bit depending on the ground that you're setting these down on. We're looking at a sturdy steel construction and heavy-duty die-cast gear boxes that are built to last. We're going to have clear, zinc-coated inner tubes and black-painted outer tubes that are designed to resist corrosion and last a long time. Each leg has independent motor, that each draw at maximum load of 25 amps of current. This limit is determined by the sets two manual reset circuit breakers that are located right here on the control panel, right next to the switches. Those are easily accessible as well. Now with the unit, you can see everything that you're going to get. I do want to point out that it does come with four brand new mounting brackets, and four sets of mounting hardware. You're going to get the toggle switches, wiring harness. Really nice design. I do want to mention real quick, just a little bit about these weld-on brackets. Now I have them set up according to what's recommended in the instructions, so this one is on top of the weld stops. This one is on the bottom of the weld stops. Now I understand that each application, each trailer may call for a little bit of a different set-up, so you do have a little bit of flexibility there, but I do recommend installing it according to the included instructions. The weld stops are only on two sides of the jacks, so please keep that in mind. That allows you to maybe orient the jack in a way that's going to work best for your particular trailer, and your particular application. Really nice design though. Four weld stops per jack, and again you're going to get the brand-new weld on brackets. It also comes with an emergency override crank bolt that's going to operate the unit manually by using a socket and wrench. It goes in this area right here and that is included. Now when it comes to the total lift for this unit, you're going to get a total lift of 36", 18" of screw travel, and then 18" of drop leg travel. Travel per minute is 9". The outer tube measures 2 1/2" by 2 1/2", and the combined support capacity is 10,000 pounds. When it comes to the lift capacity, the combined lift capacity, in the high speed setting is 7,000 pounds, and the high torque setting is 10,000 pounds. Now a few measurements I want to mention for you real quick, the distance between these welded on stop brackets is 15 1/2". The distance from the top of this bracket to the bottom of this bracket is 17 1/2". Your foot plate, that measures 8" long by 6" wide, and then the clearance that you have with the motor in this orientation, from the top of the welded on stop bracket to the top of the motor is 12 1/2". From the bottom of that welded on stop bracket to the top of the motor is 13 1/2" and again, the orientation can be flipped to best fit your space. That's going to do it for today's look at the Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear Set.
Average Customer Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (37 Customer Reviews)Quickly and easily raise, level and support your fifth-wheel trailer or RV with this powerful pair of jacks. Dual, high-speed electric motors operate independently for precise leveling and are capable of 9" of lift per minute.

This product held a lot of promise, but I'm not thrilled with the final result. 1. The instructions say to use the template that is included to cut the hole for the switch panel. No template was included. 2. The switch plate is a flimsy piece of plastic with an even lower quality label attached. In order to get the switch plate to mount flush with the RV, I had to drill additional holes in the plastic. 3. When you screw the plate to the RV, the cheap plastic label tears and looks really bad. 4. Once the plastic plate was mounted to the RV, the switches kept popping out of the plastic every time you'd use them. They are not bolted to the plastic backing plate, but simply pressed in with an inadequate clip to hold them. 5. The unit comes set for high torque applications, but you can also set it for high speed. The instructions show that you must place the motors in a different configuration that what it is delivered with. But there are no instructions on how to remove the motor to reconfigure it. Hint: If you want to change to the high speed application, there is a drift pin that you must remove first. Then you can lift the motor off the shaft, reposition it, and reinstall the drift pin. 6. When it was all installed, the motors wiggle and oscillate horribly on top of the jacks. I wish I could attach a video of this. There is no way with that much movement that the unit will be as robust as advertised. Also, the only thing that holds the motor to the jack is the little drift pin on top of the drive shaft. There has to be a much better way to accomplish this task. On a good note, the jacks did fit in place of my old landing gear and no modifications were needed to the clamps or frame. They bolted right in. Also, once everything was in place, they were much faster than my old landing gear. I would not recommend purchase of these jacks. 91919
The Positive - These are much bigger and more Robust than my previous jacks and have the advantage of allowing for leveling which is a plus. The measurements of the standard tabs fits most modern 5th wheels, but sadly on my unit and older Sea Breeze I had to replace the brackets with the supplied ones (which include all the fasteners). The fitting is relatively uneventful and aside from the small space available should not create too many problems for an average person to install. The Negative - The spring loaded adjustment handles did not properly line up with the holes (welding imperfection) and required that they be reamed out - no big deal but an irritation none the less. The bigger concern was that while the one leg raised and lowered with virtually no movement or vibration at the motor, on the 2nd leg there was substantial movement (approx 1/2 inch) of the motor in it's housing. I called Bulldog and was told that this could be a result of a manufacturing imperfection or transport damage, and that this would usually not make a difference other than visually. As an engineer this does not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling (hence the 4 star rating) - With a 5 year guarantee I hope I will not need to replace the wobbly leg at some time in the future. Overall a good and possibly great replacement to the standard Jacks. 349526

Overall this was a great purchase. I replaced my factory original single motor landing jacks on my 2007 38' 5th wheel toy hauler with these individual jacks. I used the "fast" setting, and the jacks lifted my camper probably 2-3 times faster than the shaft mated factory jacks which could not be operated individually. Even on the "fast" setting the motors and wiring never get hot during operation, which tells me they're not being overstressed, even on my 17000 GVW trailer. My only complaint was that one of the two jacks operated very smoothly and quietly, while the second still operated smooth and at the same speed, but was very loud and had alot of gear noise. No idea why that was, but it never seemed to hurt operation. I've since sold the trailer and bought a new one, which has the same jacks as my old trailer. I'll likely be installing these again on my new trailer! 338567
This product exceeded my expectations. I own a very heavy pin weight toy hauler 5th wheel and the 6k single motor lift struggled to raise or lower it and the hand crank was literately useless when the motor broke down on me camping a couple of weeks ago. I did a lot of research before purchasing this product and after a very easy install I tried raising and lowering the coach and I was all smiles. These landing gear have zero struggle and are super quiet. They lift my coach so easily that I may try switching them to the speed setting just to see how it goes. And, as an added bonus i can now level the coach side to side. Awesome!! I would recommend this product to anyone. Etrailer.com was excellent to work with, very helpful on any questions I had. Quick shipping and very informative every step of the process. 101461

Got the product and its a great package, with some exceptions. I agree the front plate for the switches is flimsy and it was bent and scratched with little protection in the packaging. I was also disappointed that the entire KIT didn't come with a wiring harness. But hey... for the price and the well built gear. I will get past it. The legs fit my 2010 Heartland Cyclone without modification, But the one behind the gen... geez. You think heartland would have built in access to that leg ... even for maintenance. Oh, hey the directions do not tell you to grease anything... make sure you grease the bearing on the side top leg screw. 156216

Let me tell you about etrailer. These folks have the best, no the greatest service! I asked a question on there site and had the totally wrong product. They contacted me with the best product I needed. They had research my 5th wheel RV and there is more than a few on the market...lol. This is the forth product I have ordered from them and all has been sport on to fit properly. Plus video on installation. Gosh, I can not say enough. Well just a little more. These bull dog legs make the manufactures legs look leke tinker toys. RG 337653

Fit these to my keystone sprinter after the original gear was buckled in a windstorm Christmas day. Much heavier and the fit was better than factory using the original brackets, absolutely no slop and the leg stops are welded on, not simply stamped out notches. Had to flip the motors over to fit. No problem there. Only complaint is they only given you a foot of wire on the new switch panel. Would have been great if they gave you enough to actually wire in everything without having to splice in more wire. 328794
Love the bulldog landing gear for my fifth wheel camper the dual motors make a lot of sense well built and great warranty.took about 4 hours to install it could be made easier to install if they would provide a plug and play wire harness so the install is fairly complicated and i got lucky did not have to weld on new brackets so if you want this sweet set up go for it you can't go wrong 101770

Love the bulldog jacks on my fifth wheel. No strain and replaced the old jacks with one motor and clutch. Don't think I will ever have a worry. The help I received from e trailer was great. I asked them about torque or speed. These jacks can be wired either way. They explained the difference and I made the decision of torque. After all, camping is about relaxing and not rush. 356482
I have just received my landing gear and have not had the opportunity to install it yet. I have unpacked all of the parts and inventoried everything and it all seems to be here and in good shape. the instructions look pretty much straight forward and should not be to difficult to install. etrailer has been great in their responce to my order and shipping. Thanks 104083
by: Michael M10/06/2015
The landing gear arrived very quickly (2 days). Because the motor is mounted on top of the landing gear, I had to cut a notch in the plate the propane tanks rest on so I could jocky them in place. The weld stops fit very snugly between the existing mounting brackets on the trailer and should not shift at all. I am very pleased with how they operate. 229375

This is an excellent product! The original landing gear on our 34' Attitude was always giving us trouble...just not enough power. After replacing the gearbox 3 times I decided to install the Bulldog landing gear. They have all the power you will ever need to raise your 5th wheel and they are very "sweet" operating! And they were easy to install. 316079
They work great. I like operating them independently. Good power using the lower gear ratio. My pin weight is just over 4,000 lbs. Uneven ground would put more than 2,000 lbs. on a single jack. I also relocated the operating switches on a mounting plate and used the existing jack switch compartment to keep them dry. 284234
by: Timothy G04/13/2016
Install was a challenge, but we were able to install them with out removing the generator and the generator compartment. Instructions easy to follow and read. They do not struggle to lift my trailer as my stock ones did. I do not have to worry if they will fail, like my old ones did twice. Very happy with them. 244125
Excellent product, easy installation on 35' ragen trailer. No problem with the mounting hardware or wiring. The only thing is, the way I had to install them I could not use the hi speed setting because the frame interfered, but even on torque setting they still perform twice as fast as factory landing gear. 250255

E-trailer is a breath of fresh air in online ordering. they do what they say they will. will use them for all my futrue trailering needs. 74501

I ordered a set of Bulldog landing jacks for my 5th wheel for the lowest price I could find anywhere else. They shipped on time and arrived as promised. When I installed incorrectly and damaged part, they replaced it, no questions asked. Will definitely use in the future! 338035
by: Patrick W.06/08/2016
Very good quality and easy to wire up. They were a little labor intensive mainly due to the manufacturer of my 5th wheel. I have a 43' toy hauler and the stock jacks struggled to lift the coach. Once I installed these i raised the trailer with ease. 259095
by: Glenn Reese09/22/2014
Works as it should. I set it in higher speed mode. Had to modify top bracket to make it fit my installation. Also modified spring pin for legs by removing about 1/4" with a grinder. I would definitely recommend this product. 152505

I buy a considerable amount of products online, and typically do not write reviews, but in this case I will make a exception as the web site, the shipping, the tracking and the information online was excellent. 338173
by: Steve R.03/02/2015
Excellent product and great service from etrailer.com. Would have been nice if Bulldog provided wiring for the kit. You will need to buy approximately 40' of 10 GA wire and connectors to complete the project. 176558
by: Ron M.06/05/2016
If you need to replace a landing gear. this is the one!!!. You no longer need to shim for level because the individual gear make leveling a breeze. Installation and wiring were explained in detail. 257725

by: Vern W01/03/2017
I installed them in about 5 hrs I am 80 years old . I had run the wiring prior to the install. I chose fast gears as my 5th wheel is light. They work as good as any you can get. 329648
by: Glenn S.04/12/2015
These jacks will be very helpful in leveling my trailer. They are also built heavier than the factory installed jacks. I think they will last longer and give better service. 184781

Great product, easy to install. Only con was cheap plastic faceplate for switches was cracked on arrival, thankfully we are a fab shop and produced a new one. 112639
by: Jim H12/14/2014
Like the jacks, but the switches were...well...lousy. Ended up purchasing the Atwood switch to run jacks independent or in tandem, Makes a great setup 165475
