Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Can a Landing Gear Set Be Used on a Box Truck
  • Our landing gear sets are designed strictly for trailers and not commercial vehicles. However, if you can find a way to attach the weld-on brackets and make a connecting rod that goes to each jack then the Bulldog 2-Speed Tandem Landing Gear Set part # BD500153 may work for you. It has a lift capacity of 45,000 lbs and extended height of 48-11/16". The jacks have built-in zerk fittings for optimal performance and comes in a durable black paint finish. The 2-speed cranking handle while...

  • Would Bulldog Jacks # BD182815 and # BD183816 Work Well on 24k Trailer
  • If you ran the Bulldog Jacks part # BD182815 and # BD183816 on a trailer that weighed a max of 24k you'd be good. Each of these jacks has a 10k lifting capacity so you'd have 20k of lifting capacity which is more than enough for the front of a 24k trailer. The jacks are not rated for the total trailer weight and are instead just rated for the amount they can lift vertically.

  • How to Choose the Correct Replacement Landing Gear Set for 2010 Outback 285RL
  • The correct landing gear set will be one that fits the weld stop dimensions on your 2010 Outback 285RL. For example, Landing Gear # RVLG-8000 has weld stops which measure 17-1/2 inches outside to outside. There are a number of lift heights and weight capacities available for you to choose from as well; I've added a link to each of our available landing gear kits for you to take a look at so you can find the set with the lift and weight capacity you need for your Outback.

  • Mounting Hole Dimensions of Round A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • The Round A-Frame Trailer Jack # TJA-2001-B has standard mounting hole dimensions which are 3 inches apart center on center. I went to the warehouse to measure and found the same dimensions. I also used a digital caliper to measure the holes themselves and found that they measured 0.42 inches horizontally and 0.75 inches vertically.

  • Will the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover Work on a 2,000 Pound Trailer
  • The Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 is rated for 500 pounds tongue weight. If the gross trailer weight is 2,000 pounds then its tongue weight would be around 200 to 300 pounds so you would be able to use the Trailer Valet! I have linked a video review of the Trailer Valet for you.

  • Troubleshooting Husky 4500 Jack that Lowers Itself and Won't Stay Up
  • The only reason why your Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack # HT87247 would lower itself is if there is a small power draw on your motor causing it to slowly drop. This could be a bad switch or a wiring issue. I recommend using a circuit tester like # 3808 to isolate the issue. If you need a replacement switch, it is # HT87452 or the complete upper assembly replacement is # HT87638

  • Recommended Front Landing Gear Jacks on 2006 Keystone Raptor 5th Wheel
  • For your 2006 Keystone Raptor, the Ultra-Fab Deluxe # UF17-943010 is a good option. The Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear Set # BD500161 may be a better option as it will have the 15-1/2 inch inner measurement and the 17-1/2 inch outer measurement for the weld stops. This will still allow you to mount the brackets where needed to fit your trailer you just will only have the top weld stop to utilize unless you add weld stops for the lower bracket.

  • A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Travel Trailer with Propane Tank Right Behind Jack
  • As far as the Ultimate Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K goes the design, and more specifically the placement of the pin, is placed close to the mounting point of the jack because that is where the jack is most stable. As far as I know they are not yet making one that would work out well for your travel trailer. Your best option is a different jack that doesn't stick down so far below the trailer frame. Bulldog 3K jack # BD1550101344 is one option. Without a footplate on it measures 7 inches...

  • Can Ultimate Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K Be Mounted with Handle Facing Other Directions
  • With the Ultimate Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K you can mount the mounting flange with the adjustment handle so that it points to the side instead of to the rear if needed. So if you have a toolbox that would interfere with it facing towards the rear of the trailer you can spin it to face the side.

  • Would Ultimate Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K Fit 2017 Keystone Bullet RKS 248
  • I looked up your 2017 Keystone Bullet RKS 248 and it is built on an A-frame trailer just like what the Ultimate Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K is designed to fit so this would fit and work very well. It has a 2,000 lb capacity so it would make easy work of your 800 lbs of tongue weight.

  • Can Pro Series Trailer Jack - PS1401420303 be Mounted at the Back of a Trailer for Support
  • You could put Pro Series Round, Pipe-Mount Swivel Jack # PS1401420303 anywhere that it will fit including at the rear of the trailer to help with support. Usually people use scissor jacks such as # UF48-979031 for this type of application though. The neat thing about these jacks is you can add adapter # UF48-979005 and raise and lower the scissor jacks using an electric drill. That will save you a lot of time and energy.

  • Will Bulldog Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack Travel High Enough to Lift Truck and Trailer
  • On Bulldog electric trailer jack # BD500199 the screw (operated by the motor) travels 14 inches and the drop leg travels 8 inches for a total lift amount of 22 inches. When the jack is fully retracted it measures approximately 9-3/4 inches from the mounting surface to the bottom of the foot. When fully extended including the drop leg that measurement would be about 31-3/4 inches. You can use this data compared to the measurements of the truck to determine if 22 inches of total lift will...

  • How to Pick Out Landing Gear for Trailer Based on Mounting Bracket Dimension
  • The easiest way to pick out replacement landing gear sets is to go by the distance between the brackets either on the trailer or on the legs themselves so that you can pick out a set that will match up to the trailer without needing modifications. 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 # BD500162. Either way this landing gear set would work well for you,...

  • Weight of etrailer.com Round Swivel Marine Jack # MJ-1200B
  • The etrailer.com Round Swivel Marine Jack w/ Wheel # MJ-1200B referenced in your question weighs just around 15 pounds. This is a nice, corrosion-resistant swivel jack that features 11 inches of travel and a 1,200 pound lift capacity. The mounting bracket and hardware are included, along with the 5-3/4 inch wheel. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on this swivel jack that you can also take a look at.

  • Can Ultimate A-Frame Trailer Jack 322-RDJ-2K Be Completely Removed from Collar Assembly
  • Yes, the Ultimate A-Frame Trailer Jack # 322-RDJ-2K uses a separate trailer-mounted A-frame collar that allows complete removal of the jack tube from the collar. Please note that the jack ships with a black plastic wedge that is held in place with a small retaining bolt. If this bolt and wedge are removed from the jack then the entire jack can be lifted up and out of the collar to give you the clearance you need for opening the rear door on your Jeep. Please refer to the linked photo...

  • Powered A-Frame Jack Recommendation for Keystone Bullet 220RBI
  • I looked up your Keystone Bullet 220RBI and it's a camper on an A-frame trailer which we have a great powered jack option for. 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...

  • Recommendation For A Wheel For a Dutton-Lainson Bolt On Trailer Jack
  • We do not have separate wheels that you can add but we do have other trailer jacks with wheels. I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Jack with 6 Inch Wheel, Item # DL22300. This jack is a sidewind swivel Jack with a wheel that bolts on and has a 1,200-lb capacity. All mounting hardware is included and it has a zinc plated TUFFPLATE finish which gives it greater resistance to corrosion and longer life. Check out the additional information and videos that I have attached.

  • Recommended Trailer Valet 5x Swivel Jack for Low Trailer Tongue Mount To Accomodate Garage Clearance
  • The Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 has a bracket height of 9 inches retracted and 24 inches extended with the 15 inch lift. Depending on the mounting location of this swivel jack you should be able to get the tongue down to that 9-10 inch range. Putting the mount in the up position will allow the trailer to drop lower at the tongue as you stated. I believe this will work well for your application.

  • Length of Outer Tube on the Landing Gear Part # RVLG-8000
  • From the underside of the metal cap to the end of the black tube is 29 inches on the landing gear, part # RVLG-8000. Generally, the measurements you need to know are where the jacks mount to the brackets on your trailer. Between the weld stops is 15-1/2 inches and the outer measurement is 17-1/2 inches.

  • Mounting Hole Pattern of Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • The 3-bolt mounting flange on the Lippert Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack # LC285318 has a standardized hole pattern. This jack is intended to mount so that the included LED light faces forward toward the tow vehicle to illuminate the coupler and hitch ball. In the specs for this jack I saw nothing mentioned about rotating it. Similar electric A-frame jacks like # JET-3755 that also has an LED light built-in use a round mounting flange that has a similar mounting hole pattern. You are...

  • Possible Causes for Electric Trailer Jack to Not Function When Connected to New Battery
  • An electric trailer tongue jack like # EJ-3520-BBX requires both a well-charged battery of the necessary current capacity and very solid wiring connections, both for the ground and the positive power connections. Even a slightly loose ground cable or a battery that is not fully charged can cause the jack to not operate. I suggest checking all power connections and confirming that the new battery has been fully charged on a shore power charger like # CTEK56864. You also need to ensure...

  • Recommended Drop Leg Jack for 20 Foot Car Trailer
  • I definitely recommend adding a couple of drop leg jacks to your car trailer to help with the rear sag you are getting when loading a vehicle. The Atwood Drop Leg Stabilizer Jack # AT480920 is a great option. This is a weld-on jack that will help stabilize your trailer and the square leg will telescope to the ground when you release the included snapper pin. The drop leg itself measures 20-1/4 inches tall and features a 3,000 pound support capacity. You can install one for each side of...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Jack to Replace an Atwood 3K Jack for Installing a Fastway WD System
  • There are a few things you may want to start off checking before looking into getting a new jack. If your jack is constantly straining then you will want to check any connections and also the ground to make sure they are secure. If your jack runs off of a dedicated battery and doesn't receive power from your 2018 Ford F-150 then your battery could possibly be weak, especially if this is the case in colder weather. If your connections look good and your battery is good (which for a...

The jack will never be responsible for lifting the entire mass of the trailer but rather just the tongue therefore will work well for you.

You didn't say exactly what height you need, however part # MJ-1200B has a retracted height of 12-1/2 inches.

  • Trailer Jack Recommendation for A-Frame 2014 Arising 6x12 Enclosed Trailer
  • The Bulldog jack part # BD1700100301 has a 5,000 lb capacity. I prefer the sidewind styles of jacks as I found them to be easier to crank than the top wind jacks. So for your application the # BD1700100301 would easily be a great fit. Since the capacity is much more than you'd need the crank would be incredibly easy to operate. I attached a review video for this jack for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Jack Light That Is Partially Dim After Water Was Poured on Switch
  • Yes, water can create shorts between circuits and what you described has been known to happen when a jack gets rained on. What's happening is that the switch is being bypassed slightly by the water which is allowing the light to slightly illuminate due to the very small amount of amperage able to get past it. If you take a blow dryer to the switches you'll see the light go off.

  • 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.

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...

  • Recommendation for Using Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack on Sand
  • The Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 referenced in your question is a really great, heavy-duty jack with an integrated drive function that can take the hassle out of hooking up or moving your trailer.

When using this item on sand, or any loose/soft surface, I recommend laying down some...

  • 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.

  • Can Stabilizer Jacks be Used to Lift and Support Trailer?

If you go with part # F1413020134 instead it is the exact same jack but it comes with mounting hardware for 3 "x 3" or 3" x 4" tongues.
