Expert Answers about Trailer Jack


  • Replacement Parts Available for the RAM Trailer Jack Part # TJD-7000S
  • I do have several replacement parts available for the RAM Trailer Jack part # TJD-7000S but not an all inclusive rebuild kit. Instead you will need to select from the components listed below and repair the jack as needed. The most common fault on the above trailer jack is the spider gears and in order to replace them you will want to use part # TJD-7000S-GR. The rest of the replacement parts we have for the jack are listed below. If you can identify what is not working on the jack I would...

  • Can a Breakaway Battery be Used to Power an Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • If your breakaway system is powered by its own battery then it is likely a 5 amp hour battery which is not high enough to power an electric trailer jack, such as # BD500199, since they can draw about 30 amps under load. The other issue is that a breakaway system needs its own dedicated battery and should not be shared by other 12 volt accessories. If your trailer has a 7-Way trailer connector with functioning 12 volt circuit you could use electric jack # 3370093500 which plugs into a...

  • How to Charge a Trailer Battery for Use with a Bulldog Jack
  • What you described is actually the best solution! Connecting your battery to 12V Power wire from the 7-Way on your trailer is a great way to provide a maintenance charge on your battery to operate a Bulldog jack like part # BD500199. Mounting a battery inside a box like part # 329-HM300BKS inside your trailer will further help to keep your battery safe from the elements (although battery boxes do a pretty good job at that). Please note that the 12V power from your vehicle will not...

  • Wiring Electric Jack to Plug Into 7-Way on Tow Vehicle
  • Although wiring an electric jack like the etrailer.com # EJ-3520-BBX you referenced to a dedicated battery on the trailer is the preferred solution for ensuring you get the needed power, you can indeed wire it to a 7-Way plug like # A7WCB for it to be connected to the 7-Way on your truck when needed. If you don't yet have an electric jack, we actually have a 3,500 pound unit available with the Buyers Products # 3370093500 that is designed to be used this way right out of the box. This...

  • Replacement Jack for Lippert Electric Ground Control TT Travel Trailer Leveling System

I spoke with a representative of Lippert who said that Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 can be used as a replacement for the damaged jack from the leveling system; additionally, he told me that you would be able to disconnect the wires from the original jack and re-wire them onto the same location of the...

This trailer jack has a total lift of 25-1/8 inches and comes with an LED light that shines down towards the coupler to make connecting or disconnecting your trailer in the dark much easier.

  • Comparing the Stromberg Carlson Trailer Jacks # JET-5000NG VS JET-5000
  • All-around the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-5000NG is nicer than the # JET-5000. The bearings in the part # JET-5000NG allow it to raise and lower much smoother and quicker, the size of the head is a bit smaller and the lighting is nicer too. For how similar the price is between the two the # JET-5000NG really is the winner.

  • Mounting Hole Size for A-Frame Trailer Jacks
  • The mounting hole dimensions of A-frame jacks are a standard 3 inches apart on center, so you will need to weld your new jack on. I highly recommend the Bulldog Round, A-Frame Jack # BD1700100317, which has a 5,000 lb capacity and will give you 15" of lift. It has an outer tube diameter of 2-1/4" and sidewind handle; for a footplate you would want # BD018564. This jack has been highly praised by our customers, with nearly 200 reviews it has an average close to 5 out of 5 stars. I've added...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Jack Recommendations for a 10,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer
  • A trailer jack only lifts part of the weight of the trailer and not the whole 10,000 pounds of your trailer. A 10K trailer would have a tongue weight of around 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. But the higher the capacity of the jack the easier it is for the jack to lift the weight and the longer it will last. A jack rated for 5,000 pounds such as # TJA-5000S-B is an option. You could add foot # JF-99 as well. I have linked a video review of the jack for you. If you'd prefer an electric jack...

The big thing with these kits is the dimensions matching where the landing gear attaches to the trailer. The standard measurement on landing gear legs is 15-1/2 inches between the tabs that are on the legs of the jack like what you see in the picture I attached.

  • While your frustration is understandable there is no way for me to tell you with certainty that using the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-3755 or # JET-4000NG will stop your tailgate from hitting the jack. A-frame jacks like these mount to a specific place on your trailer and if your tailgate comes down at that point, they will hit. What you can do instead is use a side-frame mount jack like the Fulton Marine Jack # HD50000101 or you could keep your A-frame jack and use...

We do have some electric jacks like the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack - Drop Leg - A-Frame - 23" Lift - 5,000 lbs - Black, # JET-5000 that have a round plate to mount, but the holes are still lined up with the triangular mount design. Unfortunately you will either have to weld the bracket or drill holes in your coupler for modern standard...

  • Bolt Through Swing Away Trailer Jack For Limited Space Trailer Tongue

This jack is 12-3/4 inches retracted and has a clearance of 12-1/2 inches from mounting bracket to top of jack. This will be the closest jack to fitting your needs. If you don't need the bolt thru style, I recommend the Round Swivel Marine Jack w/ Wheel - Bolt On - Zinc - Sidewind - 11" Travel - 1,200 lbs # MJ-1200B which is bolt on and has the 12-1/2 inch retracted length.

  • Trailer Dolly Recommendation for 1,000 lb Boat on Trailer
  • Before swapping out dollies you may want to try to see if putting more tongue weight on your trailer would give you better traction for your Trailer Valet 5X # STC-V211. Since it sounds like you have a bit of weight at the back of the boat it could be that there isn't much pressure on the tires which is why you're having trouble. The only other option, aside from using one of the Trailer Valet remote controls like part # TVRVR3, is to use the manual CE Smith Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly...

  • Replacement Sidewind A-Frame Trailer Jack with 2 Inch Diameter
  • The jack mounts used on a-frame trailers usually follow an industry standard pattern which is a 2-1/4" hole opening and three mounting holes spaced 3" apart. I have attached a photo to show this for you as well. If your trailer coupler does not follow this pattern and you indeed only have a 2" diameter hole to fit the jack through then I recommend using the A-Frame Trailer Jack part # DL22530 which has an outer tube diameter of 2". As long as the tongue weight of your trailer does not...

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

Ultra-Fab's note states ' This jack is designed to stabilize a portion of your trailer's weight, not to support the full GVWR of your trailer. Do not use this jack to lift your trailer or RV.

This is designed to use a welded plate like the Jack Mounting Bracket for Fulton Marine Jack # P9012-00. It appears like you have a bolt that goes into a threaded plate, so the reverse of this assembly. If that is the case, I believe this jack will still work, but you will need to put the bolt through the jack first and then thread the bolt once behind the jack into the welded plate.

Other option is to use jack # 3370093500 or # UF38-944037 provided your tow vehicle has a 7-Way trailer connector with functioning 12 volt circuit. Both of these jacks are powered through the 7-Way so no battery is required on the trailer to run the jack. I have linked videos for...
