Expert Answers about Lippert Components

  • Lippert Ground Control Leveling System Shows ERROR, LF Jack
  • On the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 # LC358590 the error you are receiving indicates either a problem at the left front jack, a hall signal issue (open ground/short, or other malfunction) or an unexpected high amperage current stall (meaning the battery stopped providing power for some reason). To clear the error you can either fix what is causing the error such as a loose or damaged wiring harness, or follow this method: Extend all jacks at least 6 inches. Then press and hold the...

  • Lippert Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack Stopped Working
  • When an electric trailer jack of any kind stops working there are a couple of things to check. First, the jack may or may not have an in line fuse that you can check and replace as needed. Some jacks also have an internal circuit breaker which should reset by itself. But if it doesn't then there is likely something wrong with it and the jack would need to be replaced. A ground interruption can also cause the jack to stop working. If there isn't an obvious ground wire to check then the...

  • How To Manually Operate Jammed Electric Trailer Tongue Jack
  • It is likely that the interior gears have stripped when the jack over-extended. If you have the manual crank that should have came with the jack, use it by removing the rubber plug at the top of the jack, insert the crank and fit it to the override nut. Turn handle counter-clockwise to lower the trailer. If you no longer have the crank, we sell a replacement as part # JCH-1. If manually cranking the jack is unsuccessful, you will probably need to replace the jack, as the jack manufacturers...

  • Recommended Awnings For 2017 Riverstone Legacy Slide-Outs
  • For your 2017 Riverstone Legacy, I'm happy to assist with getting your the correct awnings for your slide outs. You are correct in measuring from flange to flange of each box/room as that is how they determine the correct fit. However, I am really glad you are asking so we can get you the correct parts as the # LCV000165062 you asked this from is not a fit for any of your slide-outs. Your first slide-out is 88.5 inches from flange to flange, so I recommend the Solera 8' Slider (Slide-Topper)...

  • Best Automatic Leveling System for 5th Wheel RVs
  • For a set of automatic levelers that would work great on your 5th wheel trailer I would recommend the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System w/ Touchpad and Remote # LC358590. With this system you can automatically level and stabilize your fifth-wheel RV. Precise, motorized jacks can be operated by either the included touchpad or the touchscreen remote. The motorized leveling legs eliminate the need for labor-intensive, manual scissor jacks. And the auto-level...

  • Lippert Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack Keeps Blowing the 30 Amp Fuse
  • What is probably occurring on your jack is that it has been extended too far at some point and has become stuck. Trying to move it in either direction draws too much power as the motor tries to push the leg free. This cause the fuse to blow. What many electric jack manufacturers will do is to smash or otherwise distort the end of the screw that turns to move the leg up and down to prevent it from extending to far. If it does end up extending too far the threads will become permanently...

  • Recommended Lifting Bracket And Crane For Removing 5th Wheel Hitch
  • I reached out to PullRite and they said you can definitley use the trailer to remove the hitch from your truck, but you don't want to leave it hanging there. They suggest lowering onto saw horses or another sturdy surface. That is a lot of weight to leave on your pin box and king pin as well as the jaws of your hitch. I know that there are people that will use the MaxxTow Hydraulic Pickup Truck Crane for 2" Hitches - 1,000 lbs # MT70238 along with the Demco 5th Wheel Lifting Bracket...

  • Availability of Replacement Motor for Lippert Stabilizer Jack
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert and he said that based on your description it sounds like you will need to replace the motor on your Lippert LCI 113407 stabilizer jack on your 2011 Keystone Montana Mountaineer. Sometimes road spray gets inside the motor assembly which can damage the springs holding the commulator brushes causing them to rust. It also sounds like the semi tire tread may have damaged the motor. The part you will want is # LC138445. This part will come with complete installation...

  • Trailair Air Ride King Pin Replacement for a Lippert 1116 Pin Box on a 2008 Montana 5th Wheel
  • The Trailair Air Ride King Pin, # LC155943, is an air ride replacement pin box option for your Lippert 1116 pin box on your 2008 Montana Fifth Wheel. We also carry the more economical Fifth Airborne Premium Fifth Wheel Coupler, # 5AB-S500-700, as a replacement for your pin box. Both pin boxes are rated for 21,000 lbs. You should check your trailer weight capacity before purchasing a replacement pin box.

Raise trailer and jack up the axle to release pressure on the springs. 2. Remove old u-bolts and tie plate. 3.

  • Can an 11 inch Fifth Wheel Lube Plate be Used with a Curt Fifth Wheel Hitch
  • Sounds like yesterday you were recommended the use of the Curt 10 inch disc part # 16721 with your Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch and now you want to use the # LC286160 instead. There really is no reason you couldn't use the # LC286160. It has the same thickness as the Curt and would just be a little bit larger in diameter.

  • Comparing Lippert TrailAir and Reese 5th Airborne Replacement Pin Boxes for 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If your trailer gross weight is under 18,000 lbs you might consider the TrailAir Flex Air, part # LC328492. The TrailAir pin box you were reviewing, part # LC158778, is a 21,000 lb-rated replacement for a Lippert 1621 pin box. The comparable item from 5th Airborne is part # 5AB-E1621-610; this is also a replacement for the Lippert 1621 and is also rated at 21,000 lbs capacity. (But again please note that the TrailAir is not for use with any type of gooseneck adapter.) I have linked...

  • Recommended Tandem Axle Travel Trailer Shock Absorber Kit for 2015 Open Range Roamer RT316RLS
  • The Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit # LC281281 should be installed on both axles on your 2015 Open Range Roamer tandem-axle travel trailer so you'll need two. I confirmed this with my technical contact at Lippert Components. This kit requires that you have at least 2-1/2-inches of space between the inside of the tire and the frame I-beam; this clearance is required for the upper bracket that holds the top of the shocks. Kit # LC281281 works on 3-inch diameter round axles and...

  • How to Determine the Proper Amount of Air Pressure for the TrailAir Pin Box
  • There are a number of factors that affect the amount of air that you should put into your TrailAir Pin Box, # LC155930, such as the hitch you are using, the pin weight of the fifth wheel trailer, and altitude or temperature where you are traveling. The air pressures for this pin box can range between 20 and 120 psi depending on your situation. Once you have the pin box installed, hook the trailer to your tow vehicle on level ground. There is a decal sticker on the front of the shock...

  • Replacement Electric Steps for 2006 Newmar Kountry Star Motorhome RV
  • RV step assemblies are usually off-the-shelf items that are often interchangeable so long as their size and mounting dimensions match. You can see all 3-step units we offer, both manual and motor-powered types, on the linked page. We carry Lippert Kwikee Series 23, 24 and 25 electric steps. You will want to note your existing steps' mounting dimensions as you review these options. We list the mounting hole dimensions for the steps to help you select a match. For example, part # LC3658373...

  • Fixing Error Messages on a Lippert Ground Control 2.0 Leveling System
  • I was able to find the following information on errors for the Ground Control 2.0 leveling system: If an error occurs before or during operation, the error will be displayed in the LCD and a “buzzer “ will sound. The errors that will be displayed are: A. “EXCESS ANGLE” - Unit is beyond 5 degrees front to back or 3 degrees side to side. Relocate unit on site. B. “BAD CALIBRATION” - Bad zero point. C. “FEATURE DISABLE” - Hitch Recognition feature inoperative. Operate system in manual...

  • Out of Stroke Error Code on Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System
  • If you get the Out of Stroke error message on the Lippert Ground Control system, such as # LC358590, then that indicates that the jack has extended as far as it will go and cannot go any further. You might be able to solve this issue by raising the jack back up and placing some sort of leveler under it, such as # UF48-979051, so that the jack does not have as far to go. The other possible option is to move the coach or trailer to a different, more level location. To clear the error you...

  • Comparing TrailAir and TrailAir Tri-Glide Replacement Pin Boxes for 5th Wheel Trailers
  • Lippert makes the TrailAir and TrailAir Tri-Glide replacement pin boxes but they have both been around for about the same amount of time. The difference is that the Tri-Glide models have 3 steel rods which act as rollers, letting the bottom jaw glide forward and back during towing. This helps further reduce chucking. Because of this I recommend a Tri-Glide model. To determine if there is one that will fit your trailer I will need to know the manufacturer and model number of pin box itself....

  • TrailAir Pin Box for Lippert 1621HD and Locking Plate for Demco Hijacker 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
  • I believe you have a Lippert 1621HD and if that is the case then you can use Trailair pin box # LC158778. Then, for a Demco Hijakcer 5th wheel trailer hitch you would need locking plate # DM6095. I have included some links to videos and installation details for the 2 products for you.

  • Electric Trailer Jack Light Comes On but Motor Does Not Run
  • I do not think the fuse is blown because the light still comes on. It sounds like the motor has gone out. This could happen from over extending a jack or overloading it. If the jack is connected to a battery mounted on the trailer, the battery may not have enough juice to power on the motor but just the light. Take the battery off and have it tested. For a battery charger, use # CTEK56158. This charger works much better than a trickle charger and can revive a battery unless it is completely...

  • How To Determine Which Pin Box I Have and What Replacements Are Available
  • I spoke with my contact at Trailair and from your serial number we were able to determine that your trailer came with a 1621 HD pin box which is a long pin box style. I was unable to obtain the exact part number for your Trailair pin box but from the picture that you provided, it looks as though someone may have replaced the original long style pin box with a medium style. In order to determine this you will just need to take a quick measurement from the back row of bolts to the center...

  • When it comes to the proper placement of shocks like the Lippert Components Bolt-On Shock Mount Kit w/Heavy Duty Gas Shocks, # LC281255, you will want the top of the shock to point away from the center equalizer which would look more like this, \ center equalizer /. I have attached a picture for you, as well as a snapshot of the installation instructions.

  • Replacement Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack for a 9,000 Pound Dutchman Travel Trailer
  • A 9,000 pound trailer should have a tongue weight of 900 to 1,350 pounds, maybe a little more, so any jack that has a capacity higher than the tongue weight would work. But the higher the capacity of the jack the easier it will be for it to lift the trailer and the longer it will last. That is why I recommend going with the Husky Brute, # HT87247. It is rated for 4,500 pounds and has 18 inches of lift. And with this jack it will shut off before it can over extend which can damage a regular...

  • How to Remove Old Motor and Install New Coach Step Motor for Lippert Electric Steps

The motor and gear assembly can be replaced by first disconnecting the two pin connector from the module to the motor. Next, remove the p-clamp holding the wire harness to the motor mount. Then, remove the ball joint linkage from the gear followed by the self-tapping screw that holds the ground wire. Next, remove the 3 bolts that hold the motor mount to the step base. Care should...

  • Where is the Fuse Located on the Lippert Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack
  • The fuse for the Lippert powered A-frame trailer jack, # LC285318, is in its power wire, see picture. If the fuse is not blown then it is likely a ground issue. The jack grounds through the mounting hardware and if there is corrosion build up that would cause it not to work. You would need to remove the jack, clean out all the corrosion, and then reinstall it.

  • How to Remove the Housing from Lippert Electric A-Frame Trailer Tongue Jack
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Lippert jack # LC285318. Based on what I saw there are screws that enter from the bottom half of the housing and hold on the top part of the housing. These very narrow holes will require a long and thin phillips head screwdriver. I made a video for you showing the locations.
