Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for 2017 Keystone Passport 2670BHWE
  • 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. If you are considering...

  • Landing Gear Recommendation for a 1997 Fleetwood Terry 5th Wheel Trailer
  • It looks like there were several different models of the 1997 Terry 5th wheels. Some of them had exposed landing gear and some didn't. If your model has exposed landing gear then the Stromberg-Carlson set # LG-1 will work great. If your landing gear is accessed by opening panels on the side of the trailer then a set such as Ultra-Fab landing gear # UF17-943010 is a better option. Each leg has its own motor and switch. In either case make sure the dimensions of the replacement products...

  • Recommended Electric Gear Landing Set for a 2007 Victory Lane 36 SRV
  • The strongest landing gear set that we currently offer is the Ultra-Fab Electric Landing Gear Set # UF17-943010 which is rated for 12,000 lbs. Keep in mind that these are used to support only a portion of your trailer's weight, not the full GVWR of your trailer. The legs operate independently from each other to make leveling your trailer more accurate, plus they have a built-in clutch to prevent damage from overextension. From the top of the highest bracket to the bottom of the middle...

  • Recommended Electric Tongue Jack For Travel Trailer With 6840 Dry Weight
  • For your travel trailer with a dry weight of 6840, a 3500 lb electric jack will work just fine. I recommend the Electric Jack w/ Footplate - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 25-1/8" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black # EJ-3520-BBX for your application. This jack has a drop leg and 2 switches (one for power and one for moving up or down). This jack has an LED light to help you will connecting when it is dark. It includes the emergency manual crank for worst case scenario. If you are interested in upgrading...

  • Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack that Plugs Into a 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • We actually have an electric A-frame trailer jack that has a 7-Way connector on it already. It is Ultra-Fab jack # UF38-944037. It isn't a pass through device meaning you would have to unplug the trailer from the vehicle 7-Way and then plug in the jack but this is preferred because there is less of a chance to overload the 12 volt circuit this way.

  • Toubleshooting Non-Functioning Lippert 3500-lb Tongue Jack
  • Based on your description of the problem it sounds like either your jack has a bad ground connection or that the battery is not charged up quite fully enough to operate the jack motor. If the jack's ground connection is made by its mounting plate, as is often the case with an a-frame tongue jack like # EJ-3520-BBX, you can try sanding/cleaning the mating jack and trailer surfaces to remove paint, primer, rust or trapped dirt that could interfere with the ground connection. Ideally you...

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 since your tongue weight could be up to 2,000 lbs but will ensure that the jack will operate...

  • Basically all A-frame trailer use the same 3 bolt pattern as what the Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-BBX is designed to fit. If you have a jack that attaches to your trailer with a 3 bolt hole mount this jack will fit it. They all use the same 3 bolt on 3 inch mounting pattern.

  • Does Caster Wheel of Fulton Bolt-On Swivel Jack FXP15 Rotate
  • The Fulton Bolt-Thru Swivel Marine Jack # FXP15 does feature a caster wheel that rotates to make it easier to move your boat trailer around. You can see this in the linked video at the 4-minute mark. The entire jack also swivels on its mount to allow you to stow it in a horizontal position when travelling and to lower it when you need to unhitch the trailer.

  • Recommended Replacement Landing Gear for 1994 Fleetwood Westport
  • Most landing gear is standard size and within a similar capacity. For your 1994 Fleetwood Westport, I recommend the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set - Weld On - 34-7/8" Lift - 5,500 lbs # LG-1. This replacement landing gear has over a 15 inch drop leg for extra lift. This assembly is an industry standard that welds directly to the frame of your 5th wheel. The jacks then mount to the brackets.

  • Recommended Electric Jack For 2012 Keystone Outback 301BQ
  • For your 2012 Keystone Outback 301BQ, I recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 4,500 lbs # HT87247. This jack uses a low-friction ball screw to minimize resistance to reduce wear, noise and heat. Ball bearings roll smoothly through threads so there is no direct friction contact like a typical threaded screw design. This allows the system to draw 30 percent less power than screw systems. If you want the jack with wireless remote, you can use...

  • Would Crank Handle of TJDA-5000S Interfere with Tailgate Opening on Truck
  • The crank on the Square A-Frame Jack w/ Footplate # TJDA-5000S is on the front of the jack. It is very possible that it could interfere with your tailgate fully opening depending on the setup. If that were the case though moving the crank handle to be all the way up would help get around that. A longer ball mount could help. I attached a link to a page that has all of the longer ball mounts we carry.

  • Alternative to Using Scissor Jacks to Lift a Truck to Change a Tire
  • Scissor jacks such as # UF48-979031 aren't designed to lift wheels off of the ground but just to provide support on trailers or RVs to limit side to side movement. What I recommend is a bottle jack such as # ALL640407 which costs less and is rated for much more weight. It has a lift range of 7-7/8" to 15-1/2". Need more lift? Bottle jack # ALL620471 has a lift range of 11" to 21".

  • Will Bulldog Powered Jack BD500187 Fit Tear Trailer on A-Frame Trailer
  • As long as you have an A-frame jack installed on your trailer currently the Bulldog Powered Jck part # BD500187 will easily fit and replace it. There isn't a wheel assembly for this or any of the other powered jacks because the wheels don't have very high capacities and it would greatly limit the capacity of the jack. The jack weighs 22 lbs and would be considered as tongue weight on your trailer.

  • Distance from Center of Tube to End of Plug Holder on Husky Brute Trailer Jack HT87641
  • I went to the warehouse and pulled a Husky trailer jack # HT87641 to take some measurements for you. Measuring from the center of the jack tube straight back it is 4-3/4 inches to the back edge of the plug holder. However, with that plug holder removed it only measured 2-1/2 inches; a big difference. The plug holder can be removed and is held on with 5 screws. Once the screws are removed the plug holder slides down to come out of the jack. Be sure to reinstall the screws to keep water...

  • Is an Inline Fuse Link Required to Install Bulldog Landing Gear
  • You would not need the 30 amp fuses from the previous landing gear as the 25 amp breakers that come with the Bulldog Landing Gear part # BD500161 would provide all the circuit protection you need and would trip before the 30 amp fuse would blow.

  • Replacement Rear Scissor Jacks for 2012 KZ Spree 261 Travel Trailer
  • Trailer items like jacks and stabilizers are usually not trailer-specific and most trailer makers don't even keep track of the specific jack installed on their trailers since they may change such parts based on availability or pricing. The things you want to match up as you choose your new scissor jack are the weight capacity (check the sticker on your damaged jack and use at least that same rating if not higher); and the jack height. You want to make sure you do not lose ground clearance...

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack for Maximum Ground Clearance on Horse Trailer
  • Our range of a-frame jacks is shown on the linked page. First you need to select the required lift capacity; it is best to over-spec the jack since that will help it last longer. Choose a jack that can lift more weight than you require it to. If 10-inches of lift is enough you might consider the Atwood 11K-rated jack # AT84146 which can be used along with RoboFoot # AT81030. The automatic folding foot will let you maintain the most ground clearance.

  • Replacement Powered Jack Recommendation to Replace Jack that Was Over-Extended and Damaged
  • Sounds like you over extended the jack which can damage the gears. The problem is that some jacks like this one will allow you to over extend them and damage the threads. Does the manual wrench seem hard to operate like the gears are damaged or cross-threaded? If so, that would mean what I mentioned happened and it's time for a new 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....

  • Thickness of Outer Tube Material on Bulldog Square Jack BD180354
  • The square outer tubing on the Bulldog Square Jack # BD180354 measures 3-inches on a side. It is heavy enough material that it can be welded directly onto the trailer frame with no burn through. The outer tube is made of 1/8-inch thick steel. I went to our warehouse to measure it for you to be sure. Each jack has a lifting capacity of 7200-lbs. This means that for your application of stabilizing a trailer during the loading of heavy equipment these will work fine. Since you are not asking...

  • Recommended Replacement 2,000 Pound Trailer Jack for Sweetwater Boat Trailer
  • The weld brackets do sometimes differ between trailer jack models, so the best way to ensure a replacement jack will mount onto the existing bracket on your Sweetwater Trailer, is to simply measure the dimensions of the weld-on bracket. I recommend looking at the Bulldog Round, Snap-Ring Swivel Jack # BD151109. This jack has a 10 inch lift with a 2,000 pound lift capacity. I went out to the warehouse to take some measurements of the mounting bracket on this trailer jack. The bracket...

It is a very nice jack that has some really nice functions like the bubble level, large LED side lights, built in clutch to protect gears and motors as well as the drop leg function.

These dollys have two speeds and will allow you to use a drill attachment for easier function. Unfortunately there is not a front hitch available from any of our manufacturers confirmed to fit a 2010 Chevy 3500 Van.

  • Recommended A-Frame Trailer Jack for Off-Road Use
  • I suggest the Bulldog Heavy-Duty A-Frame Jack # BD165412 for you. It has a steel wheel and gusseted caster bracket so if it does make contact with something it'll hold up better than the typical plastic wheel. There's also only 7-1/2 inches from the bottom of the wheel to the bracket when the jack is retracted. So there's less chance the wheel will bottom out on anything. I've linked a video on the jack. I've linked our selection of trailer toolboxes for you as well.

  • Powered Jack Recommendation to Replace 3,500 Power Jack that Strains
  • For your style of A-frame trailer and it's loaded weight the best option is a higher capacity powered a-frame jack like the Husky Brute Jack part # HT87247 which has a 4,500 lb lifting capacity which would be more than needed since your trailer that weighs right at 10k would have a tongue weight around 1,000 lbs. 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...

This is the closest topwind jack we have to the Pro Series # PS1400950376, but it does not have the spring return. Every other aspect is very similar.

  • Does Bulldog 12.5K Square Trailer Jack Have to be Welded On
  • One option would be to weld a bracket to Bulldog jack # BD182700 and then bolt the whole thing to the trailer. That way you are not welding steel to aluminum. Otherwise, if you choose to go with welding the jack straight to the trailer frame I recommend having a professional welder do it because welding to aluminum is tricky and takes experience. If you weld a steel bracket to the steel jack tube the bracket would have to be fabricated since there isn't a bracket made for this purpose.

  • Recommended Replacement Electric A-Frame Jack For 2013 Springdale Trailer
  • If the a-frame jack you have on your trailer failed I recommend getting a stronger jack for your 2013 Springdale trailer. I recommend the Bulldog Powered Drive Trailer Jack, part # BD500199. This has a 4,000-lb capacity and a total travel of 22-inches. You may also want to keep a cover on the jack when it is not being used if you do not already have one. I recommend a cover like part # UF38-944020. This weatherproof cover has a drawstring that helps hold it secure to the jack.

The brackets have several holes that can vertically handle varying heights and the threads of the bolts are long enough to allow it to fit thinner frames as well.

The steel wall thickness is approximately 1/8 inch thick. Both landing gear sets are rated for a total of 8,000 pounds.

  • Caster Wheel for Bulldog 2K Round, Snap-Ring Swivel Jack
  • A caster wheel pivots independently of what it is attached to so the inner tube of Bulldog jack # BD151443 would not have to rotate. Take a look at wheel # BDCP555. This is a caster you can use with the jack. In the linked video you can see that the wheel rotates independently from the shaft that attaches to the jack. Keep in mind that even if the jack capacity is higher than the wheel the addition of the wheel limits the capacity of the jack; in this case it would be limited to 1,500 pounds.

  • Comparing Lippert and Atwood 2,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • I wouldn't say that Lippert Components 2K A-frame trailer jack # LC285420 is any better or worse than your Atwood jack. All of these jacks are pretty much the same. They use a couple of gears to move an ACME screw up and down through a fixed nut. Lippert makes a lot of RV and trailer parts as does Atwood so I would say they are on par with each other. The A-frame jack bolt pattern is the same for all jacks (with few exceptions) which is 3 inches apart on center. If you want to go with...

Connect one battery's positive post to the negative post of the other; then use the other remaining posts for connection to your jack. You will want to make sure that your two batteries have the current capacity required by your jack.

I recommend replacing the entire system versus just one leg as they may move at different rates and make it more difficult to level your trailer. Your other option is to use the Ultra-Fab Deluxe Electric Landing Gear Set - 38" Lift - 12,000 lbs # UF17-943010 which has a motor...

  • Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for 12,000 lb Trailer
  • A 12,000 lb bumper pull toy hauler is pretty heavy but we have A-frame jacks that would work well for this application. 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...

  • Troubleshooting Husky Brute Electric Jack That Will Not Raise But Will Lower Under Power
  • If an electric trailer jack will lower under power but not raise up under power then the cause could be related to the power supply feeding the jack, or it could indicate that the jack is overloaded or damaged. A power jack can deliver its rated lifting capacity only when it has sufficient power input from (usually) the dedicated trailer-mounted battery. The 12V power feed on a vehicle 7-way may not be able to deliver the current required by the jack motor. It takes much more power for...

  • Troubleshooting Power Tongue Jack That Stopped Working
  • The first thing I recommend doing is check the wiring inside your Lippert Jack # LC285318 to see if there are any damaged wires that caused the electrical arcing.

The # LC285318 is grounded through the mounting hardware. If you over extend a jack it can burn out the motor and will need to be...
