  • How Far can the Jacks Extend that Come with the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590
  • The Lippert Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590 is a great system that is pretty much universal and could be installed on your RV, but it will won't be able to extend far enough for your RV to sit level where it is at without utilizing blocks like you are currently doing. The rear jacks have a total travel of 12-1/2" and the front jacks have a total travel of 36". If your trailer was turned around you may be able to find a way to make it work without using too many blocks, but your best bet...

  • Can Follow Leg on Landing Gear be Converted to a Lead Leg
  • Technically you can change your follow leg to a lead leg on your landing gear, but for the amount of time, money, and technical information (not to mention making sure it is safely done) needed to accomplish this it is much easier (and more safe) to just purchase a new lead leg to replace your follow leg. When you purchase a new lead leg the best option would be to purchase the exact same model as your current lead leg. This will ensure that the gear ratios are the same so that your...

  • Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Freezing in Cold Weather
  • I spoke to my contact at Lippert Components (LCI) and they informed me that the jack will perform best in cold weather when it is properly lubed and cleaned. To clean the jack I recommend using a brake parts cleaner and spraying down both the drop leg and gears within the head of the unit. Once these two components have been cleaned you will need to acquire some lithium grease like part # L10307 and apply that to the gears on the trailer jack. Once you grease the gears on the unit you...

  • How Fast is Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-BBX Plus Faster Moving Jack Recommendation
  • If you check out the 5:45 mark of the review video I attached you can see the jack being powered up without a load on it. You should note that with a load on the jack it will be a bit slower. A quicker moving jack is the Husky Brute part # HT87247 which I attached a review video for this as well. It moves quicker because the screw threads are on ball bearings which allows them to move much easier without friction. The 6:45 mark of the other video attached shows the speed of this jack.

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack for A-Frame Trailer with 17,000 lb GVWR
  • For your trailer, I recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 4,500 lbs # HT87247. This is the most popular electric trailer jack we carry and it sets itself apart with the ball screw design that uses a ball bearing within the threaded screw for a low friction and extended life with less power draw on the motor. There is a light as well as a drop leg to make using this jack easy. If you want to add the wireless remote key fob, they have that...

  • Comparing the Husky Brute # HT87641 to the Husky HB4500R
  • The Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack with Wireless Remote - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 4,500 lbs # HT87641 is the same as the HB4500R you see on the manufacturer's site. It comes with 2 key fob remote controls and the drop leg that gives you 6 inches of travel to add to the 18 inch lift for a total travel of 24 inches. The motor will travel 10 inches in 38 seconds and has an amp draw of 25 amps at the rated 4500 lb load. This is a very popular jack due to the ball screw design...

  • Recommendation for Quick Moving Powered A-Frame Jack
  • My favorite powered jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87641 as it has bearings in the screw which allow it to operate quicker and smoother. 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. It has a lifting capacity of 4,500 lbs which would be more than you'd need but will ensure that the jack will operate quickly and last a long time. This would be the...

  • Recommended King Pin Stabilizer for 5th Wheel Trailer with Living Space in Front of Landing Gear
  • The Ultra-Fab Economy 5th Wheel King Pin Tripod Stabilizer - Steel - 31" to 54" - 5,000 lbs # UF19-950500 is made of steel. This tripod is a great support to increase the stability of the 5th wheel trailer that has a large overhang that would sit over the bed of the truck. Because the landing gear is so far back on many models, especially those with slide outs in this location, the increased stability at the king pin will keep your trailer more level and will keep it from rocking when...

  • Recommended Landing Gear for Nash 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The # LG-1 is rated for 5,500 lbs and the # LG-3 is rated for 6,500 lbs, so they are similar yet there is a 1,000 lb capacity difference. That as well as the motor will account for the cost differences. For your Nash 5th wheel GVWR 7000 lbs, I recommend the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set - Weld On - 34-7/8" Lift - 5,500 lbs # LG-1. You may also be interested in the spring loaded pins # LG-119113.

  • Adding Stabilizer Jacks to the Rear of a Fifth Wheel
  • To measure for ground clearance for stabilizer jacks you were correct in that you need to measure from the bottom of your fifth wheel's frame to the ground when you are set up (including if you are using blocks). For example, if you measured and got 25 inches, the Husky Jacks # 70135 you referenced have a collapsed height of 4-1/4", leaving you with 20-3/4" of clearance. The Husky jacks have a lift height of 28", but if you need more, the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979032 jacks have a lift of 30"...

  • Recommended Husky Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack for 2003 Fourwinds Classic 31BH4 Travel Trailer
  • Any item that has to lift or pull weight - whether 5th wheel landing gear, a travel trailer electric tongue jack or a winch - will typically work better and last longer if it is not used at or near its absolute maximum capacity. Think of the extra capacity as safety margin. For a travel trailer such as your 2003 Fourwinds Classic Series 31BH4 (dry weight of 7358-lbs) the rating I suggest for an electric A-frame jack is 4500 to 5000-lbs. Husky's Super Brute # HT82022 is a really nice...

  • Recommended Scissor Jacks for 1974 Travco Motorhome
  • Certain trailer items like scissor jacks are not trailer/motorhome-specific. In order to choose scissor jacks that will work well on your 1974 Travco Motorhome, you will just want to make sure you choose a set with the needed weight capacity, along with the proper jack height. You will want to make sure you don't lose any ground clearance by selecting a jack that extends further down when retracted. I recommend noting the weight capacity on your existing jack along with its height in order...

  • Choosing the Correct Replacement Landing Gear for 2004 Montana 2955RL
  • Both sets of the Stromberg Carlson landing gear you referenced mount to brackets that are 17-1/2 inches apart, so if your brackets have the same measurements the landing gear will fit perfectly. According to my research, the 2004 Montana 2955RL has a dry hitch weight of 1,980 lbs, so # LG-1, with a capacity of 5,500 lbs, would be a great choice. I've added a link to a video review of this landing gear for you to take a look at.

  • 2-Motor Powered Landing Gear Recommendation for 2010 Keystone Montana
  • The Montana by Keystone had a special set of landing gear made for them by Lippert. So typically we recommend the part # LC178653 for the lead leg and part # LC178652 for the follow leg. The difference is the mounting bracket location that's on the jack. So your best option for a dual motor landing gear setup would be the Bulldog kit part # BD500161 which can have the motors inverted when installed like what you see in the attached picture. This will give you more clearance. The mounting...

  • Can Suspension Pro Electric Trailer Jack be Rotated?
  • The Suspension Pro Electric Trailer Jack # 81201 is not meant to be rotated or maneuvered; by doing so you may inadvertently compromise the security of its installation. You asked if you could just turn the head of the jack, so it sounds as if you are very close to being able to open the tailgate of the truck, so I recommend trying to find a ball mount which is longer than your current one. The extra length may give you the space you need to put your truck's tailgate all the way down. I...

  • Can Stabilizer Jacks be Used to Lift and Support Trailer?
  • Stabilizer jacks such as # TJ01RT-HD are not designed to lift and support trailers for something like taking the wheels off; they are meant to simply level and stabilize by handling a portion of the trailer's weight. I would not be able to recommend using stabilizer jacks to keep a trailer up. A better option would be a bottle jack such as the Powerbuilt # ALL640407 to remove tires. I've added links to a pair of video reviews of this jack for you to take a look at.

They can then extend to up to a height of 17 inches and can support up to 6,000 pounds each. The base itself measures 6 inches by 6 inches. These unique jacks will work great to help support a small trailer or camper when parked. The stackable design of the stabilizers minmizes the required storage space when...

  • Considerations for Selecting Replacement 5th Wheel Landing Gear
  • The various 5th wheel landing gear kits we offer cross many brands and price points too. Some of these kits are actually identical to one another (or very nearly so) and are simply branded differently, some being from the industry's main OEM supplier, Lippert Components, and others from aftermarket brands. In this particular product category I truly would not base my choice on brand name since you might get the same item for less (or more!) based on the branding. What I do recommend...

This 4-Point system will work perfectly to provide a more stable feeling when you are in the trailer. As long as the trailer does not weigh more than 20,000 pounds, the additional stability that a 6-point system might provide is simply not necessary and you would not really gain anything from it.

  • What Gauge Wire and Fuse Should be Used to Install Bulldog A-Frame Trailer Jack BD500187

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...

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack for 2017 Jayco Jay Flight SLX Travel Trailer
  • Trailer tongue jacks can be rated for well under the trailer's actual weight since they never have to lift the entire trailer, only the weight of the tongue area at the coupler end. Usually in a properly-loaded trailer this will be between 12% and 15% of the trailer's total gross weight (GVWR). Since your 2017 Jayco Jay Flight SLX A-frame travel trailer has an unloaded tongue weight (TW) of 710-lbs we can estimate that when fully loaded the TW will be more like 1000-lbs. For this weight...

  • Is There a Difference Between Ultra Fab Scissor Jacks and Lippert Scissor Stabilizer Jacks
  • There really isn't a difference between the intent and purpose of the Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jack # UF48-979006 and the Lippert Scissor Stabilizer Jacks # LC285326. One just has the word Stabilizer in the title and the other does not. Both will perform the same way and stabilize the trailer, only really difference is that the part # LC285326 has a 10,000 lb capacity and the # UF48-979006 has a 6,500 lb capacity.

  • Installing the Wiring on Lippert Power Stabilizer Jack
  • For your Lippert Components Power Stabilizer Trailer Jack # LC298707 the wiring is pretty simple. There are two wires that come out of the motor and they are both used as power or ground depending on the direction you want to turn the motor. To connect them to a switch, you will have power and ground to the switch and then extend or retract on the switch. Simply attach the two motor wires to the switch and reverse them if they are working the opposite way as labeled. I've attached the...

  • Will Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Work as Replacement on 2009 Keystone Trailer
  • If you are looking to replace your existing landing gear, the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set # UF17-943010 referenced in your question should work great on your 2009 Keystone Trailer. As you referenced in your question, this pair of electric jacks features powerful, 12-volt motors that will function independently of one another for simple and effective leveling. The 12,000 pound weight capacity is more than enough for the weight of the trailer. I have attached an image that...

  • 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...

  • Can Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack HT87641 Still Function Without 12V Electrical Power
  • If an electric trailer jack like the Husky Brute # HT87641 cannot get the 12V operating power it needs to function it can still be operated using the included manual crank. This is shown in the linked review video (and an installation video is linked too). The manual operating crank is used at the top of the jack housing, by removing the rubber plug. The power this or any other electric jack requires to operate will vary depending on the load. At the maximum rated lift capacity of 4500-lbs...

  • Jack for Tire Replacement on Lifted Jeep
  • Our scissor jacks should not be used to lift a car to replace a spare tire as they were not designed for that application. Instead, depending on how far you need to lift, you may be able to use the Powerbuilt Unijack # ALL620470, which can lift up to 4,000 lbs and a range between 8-5/8" and 18-3/8", or Powerbuilt Unijack # ALL620471 which has a lift capacity of 6,000 lbs and a lift range between 11" and 21".

  • Recommendations for RV Winter Storage
  • For winter storage, your 5th wheel should be leveled to evenly distribute weight across the frame. Utilizing your jacks is key for this so your tires and front landing gear are not taking on more weight than needed. Distributing the load will help all of your components. I also recommend you winterize your plumbing system, get a nice storage cover, and get tire covers. This will maintain your system during storage and protect it from the elements.

  • Is There a Manual Override for the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set # UF17-943010

They are both controlled independently of each other for easier leveling. I did speak to my contact at Ultra-Fab who said that in case of complete power failure you can remove the housing and there is a place where you can use a screwdriver to adjust the legs, but this will take quite awhile....

For this bulb we do offer LED replacements. LEDs are a great lighting upgrade since they use less power (about 1/10th as much), generate less waste heat, do not change color as they age, do not require frequent replacement and since they provide much more light output.

  • How is Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Different from the 2.0 System
  • The Lippert Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590 uses different motors which are also configured differently than the 2.0 system. The rear jacks on the 3.0 have different mounts making them more versatile. Many of the other components are the same. If your 2.0 system is working well then it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to go to the 3.0. Why they chose the naming conventions that they did I can't say other than they do not make enough changes to warrant intermediate generation names.

  • Can a Scissor Jack be Mounted/Stored Using E-Track
  • Ram Scissor Stabilizer Jack # TJSC-24 is meant to be permanently attached to the bottom of a trailer or RV and used for stabilization purposes and not lifting. As such there isn't a storage mount for it. For a portable jack that is rated for lifting I recommend a bottle jack such as # ALL620471. There isn't a specific E-Track mount to hold the jack but something such as storage hook # EM59142 could be used or strap it down with an E-Track strap such as # EM59151.

  • Why Does Remote Control on Bulldog Jack Need to be Unplugged?
  • It is recommended you unplug the remote from your Bulldog Velocity Series Jack # BD185400 because with the remote plugged in, the port will not be fully covered and will be more susceptible to damage. The cover on the remote port is there as a way to keep the jack from avoidable damage due to exposure. It's also possible the remote constantly being plugged in will cause its connection to the jack to be looser than it otherwise would be over time, necessitating a new remote.
