Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • How to Pick Out Powered Landing Gear for Toy Hauler to Replace Damaged Set
  • In order to pick out a direct replacement for the landing gear on your trailer we would need to know the distance between the mounting brackets. Otherwise you could just have the brackets removed from your trailer by a qualified welder and then install the brackets that come with the Bulldog Tandem Landing Gear Set # BD500161. Either way this landing gear set would work well for you, you just might have to have the brackets of your trailer removed and then install the brackets of the #...

  • 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...

  • Can the Head of the Electric Jack # EJ-3520-BBX be Rotated
  • The head of the Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-BBX unfortunately cannot be rotated. Before drilling new holes though I would unbolt the jack and try rotating the whole jack to line up with the same mounting holes and see if that allows your tailgate to come down.

  • Replacement Shear Pin for Ultra-Fab Ultra 3502 Powered Tongue Jack
  • 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). My tech contact at Ultra-Fab thinks the self re-setting circuit breaker...

  • Bolt-On Trailer Jack for Small Ironton Utility Trailer
  • For your trailer you might like a rack and gear jack such as # BD169201. This jack will bolt around trailer frames or tongues that are up to 3"x5". This type of jack has the ability to draw the wheel up very close to the mounting bracket which means the clearance from where it mounts to the bottom of the wheel is only 7-1/2 inches when the jack is fully retracted. I have linked a video review of this jack for you. It isn't a swivel jack but since it can retract so far it is an alternative...

  • 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...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Jack that Has Power but Doesn't Work
  • Since the jack has power to it most like the issue is a weak ground. I'd verify that the ground of the jack is securely attached as that's the most common reason for the problem you mentioned. Some jacks ground through the mounting hardware so make sure that the main ground harness of the trailer wiring is making a solid connection too.

  • Recommended Stabilizer Jacks for a Class A Motorhome

  • How to Determine Correct Landing Gear for a 2010 Keystone Cougar Fifth Wheel

If your weld stops (see attached picture) measure 15-1/2" on the inside and 17-1/2" on the outside then the 8K landing gear will do a great job and fit your Keystone Cougar.

  • 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...

Are you looking for any specific features or capacity? If you are looking for an option with a wheel then Rack and Gear jacks such as # BD169201 can get very low (7-1/2 inches for this model).

  • 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.

A very popular option is the Pro Series part # PS1400600303 which would fit the trailer and work well. This has a 5,000 lb tongue weight lifting capacity which would be more than enough for you application and would work well.

  • Wiring Connection for Electric Trailer Jack
  • The Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3000NG does not have a battery to charge internally, so you cannot charge the jack itself. You can connect the jack to a 12 volt trailer battery and then charge that battery which is the way almost all electric jacks function. To charge that trailer battery you can connect your trailer side 7-way to your trailer battery's positive terminal and then connect the negative terminal to the trailer frame. This way the 12V from your vehicle...

  • How to Determine Capacity Needed for Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • An electric A-frame jack like the Stromberg Carlson # JET-4000NG that you were looking at will be responsible for supporting and lifting a trailer's tongue weight. You will just need to make sure that the jack you choose has enough capacity to support your trailer's tongue weight, which is typically around 10 to 15 percent of its total weight. It's a good idea to choose a jack with a capacity that exceeds the tongue weight, as this just allows it to work under its limit which will lead...

  • Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack Weight Rating
  • Good question! For a trailer with a tongue weight of 500 to 750 lbs, you will not need a jack rated higher than 3000 lbs. The weight capacity of trailer jacks can be confusing because a jack like # JET-3000NG should not be used on trailer with a tongue weight of 3000 lbs but should max out instead at more like a tongue weight of 1000 lbs.

  • The 3K Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3000NG gets its power from a trailer mounted battery. If your trailer does not have a battery (and if you do not wish to add one) there is another option. There is indeed a jack that plugs into a 7-Way connector on the tow vehicle to receive power. It is the Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944037. I have included links to videos on both jacks for you.

  • 4,500 lb A-Frame Trailer Jack Recommendation for RV
  • My favorite powered jack to recommend is the Husky Jack part # HT87247 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. While this doesn't have replacement parts available it's not prone to damage like other jacks are so it will work well for you.

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Jack for Trailer with 5,824 Dry Weight
  • When looking at electric A-frame jacks, the important weight to consider on your trailer is its tongue weight. This is the weight that the jack will actually be lifting and not its total loaded weight. A trailer's tongue weight should be 10 to 15 percent of its total weight. If your trailer has an empty weight of 5,824 pounds, we can estimate a dry tongue weight of around 580 to 875 pounds. Note though that you will want to also account for the loaded cargo weight as well when the trailer...

You could then use speed socket # UF48-979005 with an electric drill to make raising and lower the jacks super fast.

These jacks have a 4-1/4" collapsed height and 28-1/4" extended height to give you 24" of lift.

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.

  • 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.

  • How to Change Height of Fulton Jack Mounting Bracket
  • To adjust the height of the mounting bracket on the Fulton F2, part # F1413100334, you need to loosen the bolt behind the bracket (which it sounds like you have) as well as the bolt in the middle of the bracket. Take a look at the picture I've attached. Make sure to tighten both bolts back to spec per the instructions after adjusting the height.

  • Electric Trailer Jack Makes a Spark Sound Inside when Trying to Raise or Lower the Jack
  • Are you using Lippert jack # LC285318? Because it only has 1 wire. It is possible that, if you have a jack with two wires, the positive and negative wires were switched. 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...

  • Can Ultra-Fab Speed Socket Power Drill Adapter be Used with Stromberg Carlson Scissor Jack
  • The Ultra-Fab Speed Socket Power Drill Adapter # UF48-979005 can indeed be used with the Stromberg Carlson Leveling Scissor Jack # JSC-24-IND that you referenced and it will work well. 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. The leveling scissor jacks can be either welded or bolted to the trailer frame. A bolt-on installation will be a bit less permanent than welding the units, but...

  • How to Determine if Landing Gear # RVLG- 8000 Fit 2010 Keystone Laredo 266RL

Compare the measurements to the picture I attached and if your mounting brackets match this kit will fit. This style of landing gear is very common so it's very likely these are a confirmed fit.

  • Will Husky Powered Jack Have Enough Capacity to Help Install Weight Distribution Spring Bars
  • The lifting capacity of the Husky Brute Jack part # HT87247 is 4,500 lbs which is way more than you'd ever need to help alleviate tongue weight to hook up your spring bars. 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.

  • Does Capacity of Trailer Jack Relate to Total Weight or Tongue Weight of Trailer
  • The lifting capacity of a trailer jack like the part # PSEJ10000101 that you referenced is relative to the trailer's tongue weight. So the part # PSEJ10000101 has a 1,000 lb tongue weight capacity which would work well for your current trailer as it most likely has a fraction of that as tongue weight. Since your trailer has an A-frame jack on it currently the part # DL22530 might be the better choice for a replacement as that is what this style of jack is.

  • Would Landing Gear Set part # RVLG-8000 Fit 2008 Weekend Warrior CR3705
  • Most likely yes since the Landing Gear Set part # RVLG-8000 is a very universal kit designed to fit the majority of fifth wheel trailers out there but you'll have to measure the mounting brackets that are on your trailer currently and compare them to the picture I attached. If they match up then this will fit and work well.

  • Troubleshooting Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack
  • The Ultra-Fab Electric A-Frame Jack # UF38-944017 shouldn't blow a fuse from retracting too far. The fact that you can't use the manual crank to free up the jack shows that something internally has been damaged. This should fall under your warranty because this came with a 2 year manufacturer warranty that 6 time use should fall well within.

  • Landing Gear on 2010 Fuzion FZ322 Toy Hauler Travels a Few Inches But then Stops
  • It is possible that you have a bad switch. It is also possible that the battery needs to be charged or replaced. The motor is going to pull what it is going to pull but will have to keep working harder to pull the current required to operate. If there is a problem with the battery then it can't function. You could have the battery tested at an auto parts store to see if it is in good working order. I would do that first so that you aren't buying switches or wiring you won't need. If...

  • Troubleshooting the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Part # LC285318
  • There is only one wire that needs to be connected on the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack part # LC285318. This is the red 12 volt power wire that will need to be ran to the positive terminal on the battery. I cannot be sure as to how the junction box you have is ran but I recommend removing that from the equation and attaching it directly to the battery to see if it powers on. If it does then there many be a short in the wiring to your junction box. If it doesn't then this could either mean...

As long as your trailer has a frame that is up to 2-3/4" wide x 6" tall, and as long as your trailer's tongue weight is 500 lbs or less and you don't need more than 15" of lift, it should work perfectly. It is pretty highly regarded by our customers who have used it with nearly 300...

  • Jack Capacity for Boat Trailer With 6,300 lb Boat
  • To choose the right jack capacity for your boat trailer with a 6,300 lb boat on it, you need a jack with 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. Additionally, I assume you meant your jack's INNER tube diameter was 2 inches, because the standard outer tube diameter for A-frame jacks is 2-1/4 inches; you would need to have the hole enlarged to that in order to use the jack I recommend...

  • Travel Trailer Electric Jack Weight Capacity
  • The 3,500 lb capacity of an electric jack like # EJ-3520-BBX is the lifting capacity of the jack. What that means in a trailer scenario is that it would be able to lift the tongue weight of a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. Tongue Weight (TW) refers to the tongue weight of your trailer plus the weight of the cargo that sits behind the rear axle of your vehicle.Trailer TW is measured using a tongue weight scale. Typically, about 10 to 15 percent of GTW is tongue weight. Which mean that since...

  • Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack Recommendation for a 6,000 Pound Travel Trailer
  • Tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. On a 6,000 pound trailer that would be 600 to 900 pounds. 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. I personally like the Husky Brute # HT87247....

Also, if you have your manual crank handle you could lower the jack using it.

If you know the jack manufacturer and model you have I can look into it further.

  • How to Maintain Electric Jack Ground Connection if Using the Jack-E-Up Quick Disconnect
  • So the question is are you wanting to use this device because your tailgate hits your jack or because you have bent the bottom of jacks in the past? Because if it is a tailgate issue there is a much simpler solution; a longer ball mount. But really the cost is about the same so 6 in 1, half a dozen in the other. It appears that the device is made of steel so when your jack is in place it shouldn't lose the ground connection. You may need to scrape away any powder coat on the device though...

For example, we have the Curt ball mount part # D-26 which is 12-5/8 inches from hitch pin hole to ball hole which might give your customer the additional clearance needed.

This will keep the threaded rod and the pivots properly lubricated and keep them from corrosion. The rest of the jack should be powder coated to keep it from corrosion unless damaged.
