Expert Answers about Bulldog

  • 2-Speed Electric Trailer Jack to Replace Manual Jack on 3 Horse Slant Trailer With Living Quarters
  • The Bulldog Square Jack you referenced, part # BD182400, is a weld-on single speed jack rated at 10,000-lbs lift capacity. This jack can be used with a single-speed power drive kit, part # BD1824200100. For two-speed operation you will need a jack with a two-speed planetary gearbox, such as Bulldog 2-Speed Jack, part # BD183401. With this jack you can use powered-Drive Kit # BD1824180100 but please note that my contact at Bulldog advised that when using the power drive kit on this jack...

  • How to Choose the Correct Replacement Trailer Jack With Enough Ground Clearance on Rough Terrain
  • When choosing a jack for your trailer you will want to remember that the jack is not going to be lifting the entire weight of the trailer. You should choose a jack that exceeds the tongue weight of your trailer when it is fully loaded. The tongue weight of a trailer is typically calculated as 10 to 15 percent of the trailer weight. I would recommend finding the gross trailer weight rating (GTWR) which is the maximum weight that your trailer can support and choose a jack that is rated...

  • Yes, check out the EZ Lock Trailer Coupler Lock # BLTL-20-40D. This coupler lock is compatible with Collar-Lok Couplers and then use for a pin style lock to slide through the coupler you would want the Masterlock Trailer Coupler Lock part # 2847DAT.

  • How to Wire the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack # BD500200 on a Trailer with No Battery
  • The Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack, item # BD500200, only has one wire, the power wire. This jack attaches to ground through the mounting hardware and the trailer frame. When wiring the jack to your 7-Way trailer connector you will need to make sure that the ground wire from the 7-Way trailer connector is attached to the trailer frame to provide ground. You will then attach the power wire to the 12 volt accessory circuit inside the 7-Way connector or splice into the wire the is attached...

  • Does Gear Box on Outside of Bulldog Jack have to be Removed to Install a Powered Drive Motor
  • I spoke with my contact at Bulldog about powered drive kit # BD1824180100. He said that you can use it with the Bulldog 2-speed manual jack # BD183802. All you have to do is to disassemble the gear box to remove the handle that goes through the jack because the powered drive kit has one that replaces it.

  • Recommended A-Frame Trailer Jack for 7000 lb Trailer
  • You will need to choose a jack whose capacity exceeds the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. Typically trailer tongue weight is 10-15 percent of the weight of the trailer. This means that when loaded to maximum, your tongue weight would vary between 700 and 1050 lbs. I recommend the Bulldog A-Frame Jack, part # BD1550101344. A foot is available, part # PS1400700340. A caster is also offered, part # BD500245. Keep in mind that once a caster is added the capacity...

  • Which Bulldog Powered Drive Kit Works with 2 Speed Bulldog Landing Gear Trailer Jacks
  • A 2 speed jack will have a second gear set attached to the jack. It would either be operated by taking the handle off of the first speed and moving it to a separate spot on the jack for the second speed or, more commonly, the crank handle will be pushed in or pulled out to engage the second gear set. Take a look at the Bulldog 2-Speed Jack, # BD183816, as an example. It does matter between single and 2 speed when you are looking to add a powered drive kit. The powered drive, # BD1824200100,...

  • Low Profile Trailer Jack Recommendation for Better Tailgate Clearance
  • Sounds like you are looking for a lower profile jack for your trailer so that the tailgate of the vehicle does not interfere with it. I went to our warehouse and was able to locate an a-frame jack that measured less than 12 inches from the bracket up. The Bulldog Round A-Frame Jack, # BD155032, comes in just under 11-1/2 inches which included the handle. I have attached a picture to illustrate the measurement. This a-frame jack has a lift capacity of 5,000 pounds and mounts to any...

  • Comparing Bulldog Powered-Drive Jack Kits # BD1824200100 and # BD1824180100
  • The difference between the two Bulldog powered-drive jack kits you referenced, parts # BD1824200100 and # BD1824180100, is that the first one is for a single-speed jack and # BD1824180100 is for a 2-speed jack. Both are rated for 12,000-lbs jacks. My research did not reveal any photos or specs for the Towmaster THD214 dump trailer so I cannot state whether these kits are suitable. If you can confirm that the trailer uses a 12K Bulldog jack and confirm if it is a single- or 2-speed type...

  • What is the King Pin Diameter on the Bulldog Gooseneck to 5th Wheel Hitch Adapter
  • The standard king pin dimension for a semi-trailer is 2 inches diameter, where the fifth-wheel jaw wraps around the king pin. I went out to the etrailer.com semi-trailer on our lot, see link, and produced a short video showing both of the king pins in close proximity to each other for you to see. The king pin on the Bulldog Gooseneck-to-5th-Wheel Trailer Coupler Adapter, # BD0289580300, is an industry standard 2 inch king pin and will work in a semi-tractor fifth-wheel hitch, as long...

  • Powered Landing Gear Recommendation for Trailer Weighing 14,000 lbs
  • The Bulldog Powered Landing Gear part # BD500161 have a lifting capacity of 10,000 lbs which would work well for a trailer that weighs 14k. The lifting capacity of the jack is for the pin weight. Pin weight is typically 25 percent of total trailer weight. So your trailer is going to have a 3,500 lb pin weight capacity which would be easy work for the 10k capacity of the jack.

  • Difference Between the Bulldog Wedge and the Collar Lock Couplers
  • The distance between the center of the ball hole to the center of the circle used for A-frame jacks on the part # BD44125W0317 that you referenced is 12-1/2 inches. I confirmed this with my contact at Bulldog. The advantages between the latching styles of the wedge latch in the # BD44125W0317 and the collar lock like in part # BD028499 is largely personal preference. But the wedge is easier to lock with an anti-theft device. The collar lock style is more rugged and crude design with...

  • Which is Better, a Side Wind Trailer Jack or a Top Wind Trailer Jack
  • You would choose a side wind or top wind jack based on several factors. Each has its advantages. If clearance is an issue for the radius of a top wind, then you would choose a side wind. The opposite is also true. It is my experience that a side winding jack is easier to turn. However, if the tongue is low to the ground a top wind would be a better option because you would not have to bend down as much and it would not be as awkward to turn. A side winding jack normally has inner components...

  • Will Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear, part # BD500161 Fit Without Welding
  • There are a couple of things that need to be considered for installation of the Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear, part # BD500161. The welded stops that are on the legs of this landing gear are in specific locations, and require the brackets on your trailer to be attached in corresponding positions so that the landing gear does not shift when installed. I have attached a drawing that shows the dimensions needed for this landing gear. Please note that the brackets are placed in...

  • Replacement Follower Leg for a Venture VMC900L Landing Gear Set
  • The only follow leg I can recommend you use with your Venture landing gear would be the part # LC179014. Stromberg Carlson makes the Venture landing gear, that is the brands are different but the jacks are the same. I cannot recommend you install a Bulldog motorized follow leg to go with your Venture lead leg. This leg has 29-9/16 inch tall outer tube and 15 1/2 inches between mounting brackets. The only other option would be to replace your current landing gear with the landing gear...

  • Landing Gear Recommendation for a Heavy Toy Hauler Fifth Wheel
  • Sounds like your 2007 33 ft. Weekend Warrior 5th wheel toy hauler is pretty heavy if it has caused the landing gear of your trailer to fail twice so far. Between the Bulldog Landing Gear part # BD500161 and # UF17-943010 that you referenced I would go with the Ultra Fab as it has a 12k capacity and the Bulldog has a 10k capacity. Also the Ultra Fab has more positive reviews from the customers we have that have used them. The Ultra Fab set will require you to weld on new mounting...

  • Powered Landing Gear Motor Recommendation for 20K-lb 5th Wheel Trailer
  • We do offer several brands and models of replacement 5th wheel landing gear motors, including the Atwood 75391 that you referenced. This motor is rated for applications up to 5000-lbs tongue weight. We also offer Stromberg Carlson's # LG-217884 Motor and Switch Kit, rated for 6000-lbs. The motor alone is also available as part # LG-142178. Pricing for all is available on each product page and both Stromberg Carlson motors carry a 1-year warranty and 2-years for the Atwood.

  • Wedge Style Latches Vs. Trigger Latches on A-Frame Couplers
  • The main difference between the wedge style latches and the trigger latches is in the capacity of the coupler. The lighter capacity couplers will use a trigger latch, whereas the higher capacity couplers will use wedge latches. For example, the Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler w/ Wedge Latch # BD44125W0317 that you referenced uses a wedge latch and has a capacity of 12,500 lbs. An A-Frame Coupler # CA5100B uses a trigger latch and has a capacity of 5,000 lbs. Either style will...

  • Replacement Landing Gear for a Keystone Laredo 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Bulldog Tandem Landing Gear Set # BD500162 is a great option for a manual set to replace the landing gear on your Keystone Laredo. I have linked a video review for you. The handle is not included so use # BD500203 to add the crank handle. For an electric set you could use # RVLG-8HDL and add motor # M1230 and, if you don't already have one, a switch # LC145236.

  • How To Maintain Charge In Trailer Battery That Will Run A Powered Trailer Jack On A Pace Trailer
  • You will want to use a standard 12 volt deep cycle trailer battery to operate the Bulldog Powered-Drive Trailer Jack, part # BD500200. You will NOT want to use a trailer breakaway battery. The breakaway battery is not designed to power other trailer accessories or lighting, it is just designed to operate the breakaway system. To keep the trailer battery charged you will need to run a 10 gauge power wire like the, part # 10-1-1, from the 12 volt power pin (# 4 terminal at 11:00 position)...

  • If you are needing a lock for the Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ Low-Profile Latch, part # BD028287, and a lock for the hitch receiver on your vehicle that are keyed alike you can use the Deadbolt brand lock. For your Bulldog coupler you would have to use the Deadbolt Trailer Coupler Lock, part # 28012. This is a coupler lock with an inside width of 3-3/8 inches. I pulled the Bulldog coupler from our warehouse and measured the size of the lock pin that goes in the coupler. It measured...

There is an option for converting the Bulldog Square Jack - Drop Leg w/ Non-Spring Return - Sidewind - 12-1/2 inch Lift - 12,000 lbs, item # BD182400, to an electrically operated jack. The Bulldog Powered-Drive Kit for Single-Speed Jacks w/ 12,000-lb Capacity, item # BD1824200100, can be used with the # BD182400 jack. The final option that we have that may...

  • How to Lubricate the Bulldog Top Wind Round A-Frame Jack # BD155032
  • According to the installation instructions for the Bulldog Top Wind Round, A-Frame Jack, # BD155032, the only maintenance needed is applying a light machine oil to the stem that the handle attaches to. The installation instructions also recommend thoroughly rinsing the jack with clean water before lubrication. I went out to the warehouse and looked at one of these jacks and there is no point in the top of the jack for insertion of grease. You could insert grease from the bottom of the...

  • Are the Spring Returns of Bulldog Jacks Repairable if the Spring Return Function Stops Working
  • It sounds like you have a spring return Bulldog landing gear jack that has a broken spring and now won't retract when you activate the release lever. I spoke to my contact at Bulldog and he said the springs aren't repairable so you would need to replace the jack with something like the part # BD182701.

  • Lock Recommendations for a Collar-Lok Style Trailer Coupler
  • It sounds like you have a Collar-Lok coupler such as # BD028244. For that type of coupler you could use lock # BLTL-23. The body is aluminum but the pin inside that goes way up into the coupler is steel. It fits 2-5/16 inch Collar-Lok couplers. For 2 inch models use # BLTL-22. Another option, if your coupler has the pin behind the collar to keep the collar from sliding back, is to use a lock such as # 28012 in place of the pin. This would prevent the collar from opening all the way....

  • Replacement Trailer Jack for 10 Foot Moritz Dump Trailer
  • The Bulldog # BD182701 that you chose would likely work well for you, but I have a feeling the jack has WAY more capacity than you need. The capacity of the jack only needs to exceed the fully loaded tongue weight of the trailer, not the GTW gross trailer weight, which is the total weight of the trailer plus its contents. I don't know the GTW of your trailer, but from what I saw online, think you could probably get by with a smaller capacity jack. The Bulldog # BD182701 jack doesn't include...
