Expert Answers about Lippert Components

  • Slide-Out Awnings (Slide-Toppers) for 84, 90, and 156 Inch Wide Slide-Outs
  • The 84 inch slide-out will use a 90 inch awning slider length, 90 inches will use a 96 inch length, and 156 will use the 162 inch length. So for the 84 inch slide-out you can use # LCV000165062 for black or # LCV000163287 for white. For the 90 inch slides you can use # LCV000168106 for black or # LCV000163288 for white. And for the 156 inch slide you can use # LCV000168109 for black or # LCV000163300 for white.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 Adjust the Height of a 5th Wheel Trailer Pin Box
  • When adjusting the height of a pin box such as # LC1191191 it is important to support the pin box when removing the bolts. I recommend 2 or 3 buddies to give you a hand and make sure no one is beneath the pin box while raising or lowering it. With the pin box supported unbolt it, raise or lower it as needed, and then put the bolts back in and tighten them down. According to Lippert use the following torque specs: Torque 1/2” bolts a minimum of 110 ft-lb. Torque 5/8” bolts a minimum...

  • Replacement 5973820 Motor for Kwikee RV Steps
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert regarding your existing motor/gearbox model 5973820. He stated that the correct replacement motor is the Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Replacement Kit # LC379608. This is a direct replacement for the motor that originally came with your assembly and will work perfectly with the existing control unit. This kit includes everything needed to replace the motor. The Kwikee Motor # LC379147 referenced in your question is designed for the newer Kwikee...

  • Converting From Manual To Electric Awning On RV
  • The Solera Plain Power Awning to Speaker Head Conversion Kit, White # LC351863 does not include everything you need to change from manual to electric. For that, you would need the Solera Manual Pull Style to Power Awning Conversion Kit, White # LC329250 or the Solera Manual Crank Style to Power Awning Conversion Kit, White # LC337727. Once one of this conversion kits is installed, you can convert from plain power to speaker head if you so choose.

  • Recommended Shock Absorption for Keystone Montana 5th Wheel with Tandem Axles
  • Trailer suspension uses different components for the air systems than the frame mounted suspension you are looking at. For your tandem axle Keystone Montana, I recommend the Lippert Components Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 which will give you adjustable air pressure in the form of an equalizer for your leaf springs. If you want a trailer with air suspension, this is the way to go with adjustable air springs that can use manual valves or...

  • Air Ride Pin Box for an 18,000 Pound 5th Wheel Trailer with Lippert 1621HD Pin Box
  • For an air ride pin box that will fit in place of your 18K rated Lippert 1621HD pin box you have a couple of options. You can use the 5th Airborne unit # 5AB-E1621-610. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. You could also use the 21K rated FlexAir pin box, # LC328492. Both of the above pin boxes feature both an air bag and a shock to reduce chucking and provide an overall better towing experience. But if I was choosing one I would go with the new FlexAir....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • How Does Lippert SolidStep part # LC678027 Install
  • I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions for the Lippert SolidStep part # LC678027 that you referenced. Basically as long as you have room for the step assembly they get drilled on with self-tapping screws. The overall width is 26-5/8 inches.

  • 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 Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Boxes For Lippert 1621 Pin Box Replacement
  • The difference between the Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box - Lippert 1621 - 18,000 lbs # LC328492 and the Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box - Lippert 1621 - 21,000 lbs # LC369535 is only in the weight capacity. The air spring and shocks are stronger on the unit designed for 21,000 lbs. The Lippert 1621 pin box allows for either weight, so I recommend the one that is most compatible with the trailer GVWR. Either one will give you a smoother ride, but you do want to make sure your...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Ground Control Leveling System Error
  • The Error Code on your Lippert Ground Control # LC358590 is not one of the errors listed in the manual, so I reached out to my tech contact at Lippert and they said that the system must have malfunctioned at some point. To clear that code, you can press the retract button and the enter button simultaneously holding for about 3 seconds and it will clear the error code. It may function fine after that, but if not, you probably need to have it looked at.

  • I will be happy to explain how to install the shock kit # LC281281. In addition to the instructions below I have also included a picture of the actual instructions. 1. Raise trailer and jack up the axle to release pressure on the springs. 2. Remove old u-bolts and tie plate. 3. Install new tie plate with the longer side facing outward and torque the u-bolts to the specs in the instructions. NOTE: Do NOT reuse old components. 4.

  • Display Not Working on Lippert Ground Control Leveling System
  • The good news is your system is working. That lets us rule out 2 of the 3 possible components. Before replacing the third one, I recommend unplugging the connections on the panel and cleaning them prior to reconnecting. If this doesn't solve your problem, then I recommend the Replacement Auto Level Control Panel for Lippert Ground Control Leveling System # LC234802 to give you the working LCD display.

  • Replacement Motor and Gearbox for Kwikee RV Step Using Motor 151332 and Gearbox 151320
  • If your RV step's motor is dead (no operation even if you bypass the switches and directly apply 12V power to the motor terminals) then it will require replacement. Your gearbox may still be okay so long as it has not made bad noises when it last operated. If the step gearbox made any unusual mechanical noises like popping or grinding sounds then it too may be damaged. Thank you for the part serial numbers you provided. My contact at Lippert Components, who makes the Kwikee steps, advised...

  • Replacement Kwikee Control Box 90950600 for Electric RV Steps
  • The Kwikee Control Box #909506000 has been discontinued by the manufacturer. Unfortunately, if your steps were manufactured prior to February of 1999, then there are not replacement parts available and you'd need to replace the entire step. If it is between 1999-2005, you will need an update of all the electronic components and can use Lippert Components Kwikee Step Motor Conversion/Upgrade Kit for your series 22 steps, # LC379145. This kit includes the controller, motor, curved linkage,...

  • 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.

  • Installing The Replacement Motor On The Solera Power Awning
  • The Solera Power Awning Replacement Motor # LC266149 does not have an installation video at this time. However, the installation is not difficult. Before removing the motor, you want to open the awning about 12 inches and support the arms. This will remove the spring tension in the awning roller for an easy removal. You disassemble the protective housing, remove the bolts that hold the motor in place and then disconnect the 2 wires. To install the new motor, you simply reverse the...

  • Recommended 6-Point Landing Gear Leveling System for Trailers
  • The Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System w Touchpad and Remote - 6-Point Set # LC675817 has been the manufacturers choice for a long time and the system I recommend for your 2017 Forest River Blue Ridge Cabin Edition. It is a very well made system that will support your trailer well and also give you the automatic leveling option that makes setting up your camper so much easier. I've attached the installation details which state if your max capacity is...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Pin Box Recommendation For Lippert 1116
  • The Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box, part # LC328492, is designed to replace the 1621 pin box, but is not designed to replace the Lippert 1116. The replacement pin box we offer that is a direct replacement for the Lippert 1116 is the Ultra-Fab Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box, part # LC155943. This pin box reduces the jarring and chucking, and has an internal air bag that cuts down on bouncing from road shock. I have attached a product review video for this pin box you can check...

  • 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...

  • How To Select The Right Awning Size For Slideout
  • When choosing the slider you want to measure the outside front of box width including the flange. Then you need to select a slider that extends a minimum of 2-1/2 inches beyond each side of the box width. For example, the Black Solera Slider # LCV000165061 is 156 inches wide and is designed to fit a box that measures 146 to 151-3/4 inches. I have attached a link to the awnings we offer.
