Expert Answers about Camper Jack


  • Replacement for Lippert 113407 Stabilizer Jack
  • The Lippert High-Speed Power Stabilizer Jack # LC369774 referenced in your question is indeed the correct replacement for your existing Lippert 113407 system. I verified with my contact at Lippert that the mounting hole spacing is the same between the two units so you will not need to drill any new holes. This includes the jack, motor, and switch kit.

  • Can the Ultra-Fab Power Twin II # UF39-941705 be Used to Lift or Level a Travel Trailer
  • The Ultra-Fab Power Twin II # UF39-941705 were designed as stabilizers and not actual lifting jacks. You could, however, potentially install Electric Ground Control TT Automatic 5-Point Travel Trailer Leveling System # LC672136 which can do lifting in order to level the trailer. This system was previously only available for 5th wheel trailers but they came out with a travel trailer version recently. The greatest thing about this system is that it will level the trailer automatically....

  • Recommended Scissor Jack for Boat Trailer
  • We do have a nice selection of scissor jacks available like the Ram # TJSC-24 that you referenced, however none of them feature an aluminum or stainless steel construction. These scissor jacks do have a black powder coated finish though that will do a really nice job of resisting corrosion. They have a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds and will work well for your application to add stability to your parked trailer. Another potential option is the Ultra-Fab Stackable Stabilizers # UF48-979004....

  • Availability of Replacement Post for Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318
  • Unfortunately the post for your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 is not available from the manufacturer as a replacement part. If you bent the post in half on your jack, your best option is to simply replace the entire unit. Just make sure you are staying under its 3,500 pound lift capacity and are being careful not to overextend the jack.

  • Electric and Manual Stabilizer Jack Options for Homemade Tear Drop Travel Trailer
  • First off, cool trailer. I especially like your storage box setup. Yes, you can mount and wire an electric stabilizer, or install manual stabilizers, as long as you will still have adequate ground clearance. All such items require a suitable mounting point on the frame where you can bolt them on. A nice set of manual stabilizers is the Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jack # UF48-979002. These have a collapsed height that is under 5-inches. We also have kits like # UF48-979004 which is...

  • Recommended Stability Enhancement for Lippert Power Stabilizer Jacks
  • If you are experiencing that much movement with the Lippert Components High-Speed Power Stabilizer Jack # LC337199, that is definitely not normal and I recommend checking them to ensure there is no damage to the unit. It is possible they are not mounted in the best spot for your specific trailer, but no matter the extension, they should be stabilizing your trailer to limit movement. You do have some options. You can add scissor jacks like # UF48-979002 and drill adapter # UF48-979005...

  • Replacement Landing Gear Leg Set for a 2005 Keystone Montana 3670RL
  • Yes, the Landing Gear Set w/ Handle part # RVLG-8HDL will fit your 2005 Keystone Montana 3670RL. The weld stops are 15-1/2" apart from the bottom of upper weld stop to top of lower weld stop and 17-1/2" apart from the top of upper weld stop to bottom of lower weld stop. According to my research, this should be the same as what is on your trailer now so they will be a direct replacement. If you would like to add an electric motor to this set then you can using part # M1230.

I do have a solution for you to have an electric landing gear set but unfortunately we don't have a kit that will fit your landing gear. Instead you will need to replace your current landing gear like the Bulldog 2-Speed Jack # BD183416 and # BD182415.

  • Recalibrating Lippert Ground Control Jack Height After Raising Legs
  • You'd have to move the rear jacks higher and then recalibrate the zero point. It's not an impossible feat to do this by yourself either but I imagine a dealer would want to get paid for it. The “Zero Point” is the programmed point that the trailer will return to each time the Auto Level feature is used. Note: Prior to starting this procedure, double check all connections on the controller, jacks, and touch pad. 1. In manual mode, run the jacks to level the trailer. This is best achieved...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Powered A-Frame Jack that Has Power but Isn't Working
  • The Lippert powered jack part # LC285318 has a fused power wire which it sounds like you already checked. Typically the next thing that causes the jack to stop working is a bad ground. Which this grounds through mounting hardware so you'd want to make sure that the main ground wire of the trailer is attached to a clean portion of the trailer frame. Sometimes the switch can be bad too which would require the part # LC226023 to replace. If both the power and ground check out this would...

  • Capacity Needed for A-Frame Trailer Jack On 6,200 Pound Camper
  • An electric A-frame trailer jack like the etrailer.com # EJ-3520-BBX that you were looking at just needs to be able to lift a trailer's tongue weight. The tongue weight of a trailer should be around 10 to 15 percent of its total weight, which likely puts the tongue weight of your 6,200 pound trailer at around 620 to 930 pounds. With this in mind, a jack like this that has a 3,500 pound lift capacity is more than enough and will work great. It's always a good idea to use a jack that...

  • 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).

  • Maintenance Operation of Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-5000NG
  • The Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-5000NG uses ball screw technology. It is built with ball bearings that roll smoothly along the threads of the screw shaft and the nut, thereby eliminating direct surface-to-surface contact you experienced with your previous jack. This produces far less friction along the threads, leading to a reduction in heat and wear, as well as noise. In addition, because much of the friction is eliminated, less power is needed to operate the jack so...

  • Do Wheel Stops Replace Wheel Chocks for Fifth Wheel Trailer?

This particular wheel stop is for wheels that have between 3" and 10" of space between them and comes with a padlock to ensure security. I recommend a pair of them to ensure the axles are stabilized on both sides.

  • Lippert A-Frame Power Tongue Jack Extends But Does Not Retract
  • When an electric jack has the opposite problem of yours - when it will retract but not extend - the cause is often electrical. Since it takes much more power to lift a trailer's weight than it does to allow the jack to lower, which benefits from the assistance of gravity pushing the trailer down, that is the more common issue if the battery (or other power source) cannot deliver enough current to support the motor's lifting effort. Since your jack will extend but not retract I tend to think...

  • Recommended Battery for Bulldog Electric Trailer Jack
  • For your Bulldog Electric camper jack # BD500200 will run just fine off of any 12V battery. Often the trailers that use these jacks will have other components they will run as well like lighting, vent fans, etc so it is recommended to use a deep cycle 12V battery for those applications so you get more amp hours out of the battery. For your application on a horse trailer, you will be very well set with the deep cycle battery your sent a photo of.

  • How to Determine Capacity Needed for Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack

  • Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack Weight Rating

I recommend checking the mounting surface that the jack is attached to since this is how it grounds. I would then remove the jack, sand down the surface with some...

  • Stabilizer Recommendation for Small Camper Trailer
  • Scissor jacks like the part # TJSCHD-24-4 are a great option for stabilizers on a smaller trailer like you have. These mount on the trailer permanently wherease a set of stabilizers like the Ultra-Fab Stackable Stabilizers # UF48-979003 are a great option too but these would require you to store them when not in use. I attached a picture of them in use as well.

  • Weight Capacity of the Lippert Components High-Speed Power Stabilizer Jacks
  • I spoke to my contact at Lippert and they do not list a weight capacity of the Lippert Components High-Speed Power Stabilizer Jack part # LC298707 as it is designed for stabilizing the trailer and not lifting it. They also stated that it would be suitable for all trailers. I do however agree with you that if not a lift capacity, then a support capacity should be listed but unfortunately we do not have that luxury to provide this. For a similar electric stabilizer jack I recommend the...

  • Can Lippert Ground Control LC672136 Stabilize 15K Trailer
  • The Lippert Ground Control System # LC672136 can be used on trailers of up to 15,000-lbs. Keep in mind that it does not have to suspend all of that trailer weight, just stabilize the trailer by holding up a portion of its weight. The system's jacks are indeed rated for 10K and this if fine for stabilizing trailers up to 15K.

  • Wheel Stop for 1-1/2" Spacing on Tandem-Axle Trailer or RV
  • There is not a wheel stop for tandem axle trailers or RVs that will work with less than 1" but there is something close. The Ultra-Fab Chock and Lock Wheel Stabilizer # UF21-001060 works with wheel spacing from 1-1/2" to 5-1/4". Additionally, if you have a tandem-axle trailer or RV, you really want more than 1" of space between them in order to allow for the wheel to expand as you are traveling.

  • Lippert Electric Stabilizer Jack Installation and Operation from 12V Power Connection
  • The Lippert Components High-Speed Power Stabilizer Jack # LC298707 will draw power from your trailer battery. That trailer battery is generally connected to your truck through the 12V pin on your 7-way trailer connection. This provides that trailer battery with a maintenance charge while traveling but not enough to really charge the battery but rather just maintain its charge with the 2-4 amps beyond what is being used by the truck from the vehicle alternator. The stabilizer jacks...

  • Husky Brute Trailer Jack Moves Slowly or Not at All
  • The Husky Brute jacks such as # HT87247 ground through the mounting hardware. If there is corrosion where the jack is mounted or the surface is painted it can create a weak ground. You could support the trailer with jack stands, loosen and remove the jack, then sand down the mounting location for good bare metal contact. It is also possible that the jack may need a little help. When jacks are new or have sat for a while they can kind of bind up. Using the manual override crank handle...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Not Moving with Electric or Manual Operation
  • Since you are getting power to your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 for the lights and you hear the relay click when attempting to raise or lower it using the motor and switch, it sounds like there is a mechanical issue. Also the fact that you can't move it with the manual crank tells me there is an issue with the threaded rod and nut inside and not with the motor or electrical components. I recommend using some penetrating oil like # L10444 to try and loosen that binding so...

  • Could Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500188 Be Used on 4,500 lb Trailer
  • Yes, the lifting capacity of the Bulldog trailer jack part # BD500188 is 3,500 lbs which would easily be enough for the tongue weight of a 4,517 lb trailer. The tongue weight of your trailer would be around 450 lbs which would be a piece of cake for this jack.

  • Determining Correct Lippert Ground Control System for 2006 Heartland Bighorn 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Installing the Lippert Ground Control System on your 2006 Heartland Bighorn 5th Wheel Trailer is a great idea. When determining whether to use the 4-Point Set # LC358590 or the 6-Point Set # LC675817 there are a couple things you will want to look at specific to your Bighorn Trailer. First is the GVWR of the trailer, which is the most it can weigh when fully loaded. If the GVWR is more than 15,500 pounds, then you will want to go with the 6-Point System. If it is less than 15,500 pounds,...

  • Compatibility of Electric Jack with Equal-I-zer Weight Distribution System
  • The Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-BBX won't have any issues with raising your trailer tongue. Since you want to also raise your tow vehicle slightly the manufacturer won't cover any issues if you were to have issues with the jack in the future. In theory it will have the power to do what you request, but I can't recommend using it in that way. I can confirm that the jack will not interfere in any way with the Equal-I-zer weight distribution system on your R-Pod 179 trailer.

  • Lippert Smart Jack Operated Slowly and Blew a Fuse then Started Working After Manual Operation
  • With a lot of new trailer jacks they can start off stiff for some reason including the Lippert Smart Jack # LC285318. Usually manually running them up and down once or twice is enough to "break in" the jack. What probably happened with the fuse is the jack motor was trying to overcome that stiffness and in the process over drew power from the battery causing the fuse to blow. It is unlikely that you will have the problem again.

You could also have a bad switch or some other component on the inside has failed. It could also be an internal fuse or circuit breaker that has blown/tripped. This would mean there is either a short or the jack is trying to draw too much power because the battery it is connected to is bad or depleted. If the wires were...

This socket will be used with your power drill to extend or retract the scissor jack up to 10 times faster than with the standard manual crank.

From my research it looks like your 2018 Keystone Cougar 338RLK has a 12,490 lb GVWR so unless the center of the landing gear foot and the center of the rear jack foot is 20 feet or greater it is not recommended to use the 6-Point system.

The capacity of this is rated by tongue weight. And you'd have no where near 4,500 lbs of tongue weighth so this would easily take care of you.

This should fall under your warranty because this came with a 2 year manufacturer warranty that 6 time use should fall well within.

The higher the jack capacity the easier it will be for the jack to lift and lower the trailer and the longer the jack will last. Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 is rated for 3,500 pounds so it is more than strong enough for your trailer. I have included a link to a video review of this jack for you.
