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.

  • 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 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...

  • 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 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...

  • Is a 4-Point or 6-Point Lippert Leveling System Recommended for a 36 Foot 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Lippert Ground Control leveling system # LC358590 will work well for you. The 4-points of stability and leveling are going to provide a more stable feeling when you are in the trailer without the additional expense of a 6-point system. I usually suggest the 4-point system because you could easily add additional stability or leveling items later as needed. The Lippert system is by far the most sophisticated system that we carry and it isn't overly complicated to use. The touchpad...

  • 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 Choose Between the 4-Point and 6-Point Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Leveling System
  • If the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer is less than 15,500 lbs and the distance between the center of the landing gear foot and center of the rear landing gear jack foot will be less than 20' then you will want to use the Lippert Ground Control 3.0 Electric 5th Wheel RV Leveling System part # LC358590 (4-Point). If the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of your trailer is 15,500 lbs or greater and or the distance between the center of the landing gear foot and center...

  • 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...

  • How to Determine Middle Jack Placement of Lippert Ground Control 3.0
  • I spoke with a representative of Lippert concerning the installation of the middle jacks on your Lippert Ground Control 3.0 - 6-Point Set # LC675817 and was told that there is not a set distance. What you will need to do is run a string line like in the directions (see accompanying photo) and the middle jacks when retracted must be above that line. So depending on the measurement of that string it might be possible for you to mount the middle jacks 48 inches forward. I also asked about...

  • 4-Point Ground Control or 6-Point Ground Control for 2018 Keystone Cougar 338RLK?
  • I have added a photo of the manual from the Ground Control unit which will explain which of the systems, the 4-Point # LC358590 or 6-Point # LC675817 you need to use. From my research it looks like your 2018 Keystone Cougar 338RLK has a 12,490 lb GVWR so unless the center of the landing gear foot and the center of the rear jack foot is 20 feet or greater it is not recommended to use the 6-Point system.

  • 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 Much Does a Lippert 1621 Pin Box Weigh
  • Lippert 1621 5th Wheel Pin Box - 15,500 lbs Item # LC1191191 weighs approximately 100 pounds including the wings the pin box bolts to. Lippert 1621 5th Wheel Pin Box - 21,000 lbs Item # LC1387882 weighs approximately 115 pounds including the wings the pin box bolts to. The 20K Reese Goose Box # RP94720 that fits in place of the Lippert 1621 pin box weighs 170 pounds and the 16K version # RP94716 is approximately 159 pounds. I have linked review videos of each of these Goose Box adapters...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • It sounds like you have the Lippert Ground Control Auto Leveling Landing Gear 3.0 part # LC358590 and are looking for replacement rear landing gear legs. 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. The front legs are sold in a quantity of one and can fit either the left or the right side.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What is the Correct Pin Box for a 2018 Grand Design Momentum 376TH
  • According to my research, your 2018 Grand Design Momentum 376TH should use a Lippert 1621HD bolt pattern. Therefore, any of the pin boxes that are designed to replace a Lippert 1621HD should be correct for you. I have attached a list of these for you. If you are looking for a Trailair Air Ride 5th Wheel Pin Box then part # LC158778 should be correct for you. With that being said, trailer manufacturers do not provide us with information on the pin boxes they use so you will need to look...

  • 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....

  • 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 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...

  • 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.
