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 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 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,...

  • Using Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Leveling Kit # LC358590 on Montana High Country 305 RL
  • Lippert Components' bolt-on 4-jack automatic leveling kit # LC358590 is an advanced general-application system for use on most 5th wheels, including your Keystone Montana High Country 305 RL. Chances are 90-95-percent that the frame of your 5th wheel was made by Lippert, so the compatibility of this system with your trailer is virtually a sure thing. I do not have any confirmed data for how many of these system have been installed on trailers in the Montana series. This system offers...

  • 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...

  • Benefit of Using 5th Wheel Pin Box Rated for More Than Trailer Actual Weight
  • The Lippert TrailAir Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Boxes # LC328492 and # LC369535 are both bolt-on replacements for the model 1621 OEM pin box. Their difference, as you noted, is in their rated weight capacities; 18K for # LC328492 and 21K for # LC369535. Either one will be fine for use with a compatible trailer with a GVWR of 16,500-lbs. But yes, safety margin in the form of extra capacity is a good thing. The relatively low incremental cost for the 21K pin box over the 18K makes a pretty...

  • 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...

  • Cushioned Pin Box Recommendation for Toy Hauler with Lippert 1621HD Pin Box
  • Since we know you have a Lippert 1621HD on your trailer we can easily pick you out a cushioned pin box. The Flex Air part # LC369535 will be what you need. It has a 21k capacity plus has two forms of cushioning for the pin box which will work great to smooth out your ride quality.

  • Will Trailair Air Ride Pin Box LC155943 Fit 2015 Keystone Fuzion 345 with Lippert 1116 Pin Box
  • Thank you for the photo of your Lippert pin box. You have their model 1116. I confirmed this with my contact at Lippert. The Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC155943 that you referenced is a direct bolt-on replacement for the 1116. It comes fully-assembled. After you bolt on the Trailair you can use the arrows on the yellow stick on its front shock as a guide for inflating the internal air bag. With the loaded trailer hitched you'll inflate the air bag until the upper part of the...

  • 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. If you want to send me the measurement of your box or boxes and what color you want I can make...

  • Replacement Upgraded Pin Boxes for a Lippert 1621 Pin Box
  • Trailair Flex Air 5th Wheel Pin Box # LC328484 is actually not the correct model to replace the Lippert 1621 pin box. Instead it fits the Lippert 0719 pin box so it will not work with your trailer. For your 1621 pin box there are more options: # LC328492 rated for 18,000 pounds # 5AB-E1621-610 rated for 21,000 pounds # 5AB-E1621-16K rated for 16,000 pounds # LC158778 rated for 21,000 pounds # LC328330 rated for 18,000 pounds # LC328329 rated for 21,000 pounds # DM8250008 rated...

  • Weight of Lippert Electric Ground Control TT 5-Poing Leveling System # LC672136
  • The Lippert Electric Ground Control TT 5-Point Leveling System # LC672136 referenced in your question has a total weight of right around 480 pounds. This leveling system features 5 motorized jacks that can be operated by the included control panel or your iPhone/iPad and will work great for travel trailers with a GVWR up to 10,000 pounds.

For that you would want the part # LC305340 . The part number for the rear would be # LC344792 for the right and part # LC305339 for the left.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Replacement 5973820 Motor for Kwikee RV Steps

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 that you referenced in your question is designed for the newer Kwikee...

  • Recommended Lippert Trailair by Center Point Air Ride Trailer Suspension for Jayco Pinnacle 36fbts
  • The Lippert Components Trailair by Center Point Air-Ride Suspension Upgrade - Tandem Axle # LC1565391 will give you the smoothest ride of any of our comparable suspension systems. It will give you an extra 2 inches of trailer rise, so your trailer would most likely not have any tire rub if you were to upgrade. Your current system is more comparable to the Dexter E-Z Flex # K71-652-00 or Lippert Equa-Flex which both use rubber springs to cushion the ride. These are all really good...

  • 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...

  • Does a Cushioned 5th Wheel Hitch or Cushioned Pin Box Give Better Ride Quality
  • If it were me I would go with a non-cushioned hitch and the upgraded pin box for the trailer. The reason for this is the amount of cushioned and chucking prevention on the pin box is greater than what would be on a cushioned hitch and would provide a superior ride. For a 14,000 pound 5th wheel trailer I recommend the Reese hitch # RP30047. This is the old workhorse for Reese. Its been around a long time because it is a quality design and a reliable hitch. For the proper replacement...

For that you would want the part # LC344792 for the rear right leg and the # LC305339 for the rear left leg. The part number for the front leg will be # LC305340.

  • Troubleshooting Blank Display on Auto Level Control Panel for Lippert Ground Control 3.0
  • Remove the panel and unplug it from the back. Leave it unplugged for at least 15 minutes so that it loses all of the residual power and is completely shut off. After that plug it back in. This should take care of the issue. If it doesn't and you still have a blank display then the control panel is defective. If you need a replacement the part number is # LC234802.

  • Best Fifth Wheel Pin Box Replacement to Reduce Chucking
  • Your correct set-up would depend on the length of your truck bed. If you have a 6-1/2 foot bed and a sliding hitch, the Ultra-Fab Trailair you referenced, part # LC179879 would dramatically improve your ride quality. This pin box is a direct replacement for the Lippert 0179. If you had the Lippert 1621 king pin, you would need part # LC158778. If you have the 5-1/2 foot bed, you would need to use a 5th Airborne Air Ride with Sidewinder to provide additional clearance between the fifth...

  • Troubleshooting Power Tongue Jack That Stopped Working
  • The first thing I recommend doing is check the wiring inside your Lippert Jack # LC285318 to see if there are any damaged wires that caused the electrical arcing. If you do not see any damaged wiring check the inline fuse to see if it is blown and needs to be replaced. If the fuse checks out you want to make sure it is grounded securely and corrosion free. The # LC285318 is grounded through the mounting hardware. If you over extend a jack it can burn out the motor and will need to be...
