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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Measurements and Installation of Manual RV Pull-Out Steps
  • I have included a picture that shows the measurements of the manual folding step, # LC341501. Because of the way the steps are designed, you would not be able to pull out just 2 steps. You would have to pull out all 3. On the top the center to center distance between the mounting holes is 26 inches. For a 2-step version use # LC341500.

  • Comparison Between Dexter E-Z Flex Suspension System and The Lippert Equa-Flex Equalizers
  • Both the Dexter E-Z Flex Heavy Duty Rubber Suspension System, # K71-652-00 and the Lippert Euqa-Flex Cushioned Equalizers, # LC1594011, are upgrades from the traditional leaf spring suspension equalizers. Both the Dexter and Lippert systems use rubber shock technology that will deliver smoother towing. The Dexter E-Z Flex has a spring end spacing that runs between 5-1/4 to 6-1/4 inches. The Lippert Equa-Flex dimensions on the spring end mounting holes is 5-1/2 inches. The Dexter E-Z...

  • 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 Landing Gear Motor for Venture M-9000-PK Motor and Replacement Aluminum Gearbox
  • To replace your existing Venture motor, the Lippert Components Venture 5th Wheel RV Landing Gear Motor # LC142178 is the correct replacement part for you. For an aluminum gear box, you are correct that you can use part # LG-179015. The # LC142178 motor does not have a weight rating. I spoke with my contact at Lippert and she confirmed that landing gear motors do not have weight ratings, but the system is limited by the overall system weight capacity.

  • Which Air-Suspension Pin Box to Replace Lippert 1621HD on 18,000 Lb 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The HD designation on your Lippert 1621HD pin box does indicate that it is a heavy duty model. Based on your estimated 18,000 lb gross trailer weight you can use the TrailAir # LC158778. I did confirm with my contact that the LC158778 will work in your application. Or you can use one of the other replacement pin boxes such as the Reese # RP61421, which is a sidewinder pin box without air suspension.

  • Removing the Top Cover on Lipper Trailer Jack LC285318 to Replace Switch
  • There are 4 screws on the bottom of the bottom cover holding it to the top. And if you remove the cap on the very top of jack # LC285318 you will see 2 more screws. With all the screws removed you should have no problem with the cover.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Air Ride or Sidewinder Pin Box for Lippert 1621
  • The # LC328492 Trail Air Flex Air Air Ride Pin Box you mentioned is not an extended pin box. When installed, the center king pin to first row of bolt holes in the turret would be right at 17-3/4 inches, as you can see in the provided diagram. I've also shown the bolt hole spacing so you can compare it to your existing pin box. If you're looking for some extension to provide additional distance between the front of the trailer loft and the rear of the truck cab, you'd want to use a Sidewinder...

  • 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....

  • My contact at Lippert confirmed with me that the replacement step for LCI model 168367 will be the Lippert Kwikee 34 Series Double Tread Electric Step, # LC3722862. The Lippert Kwikee step features an automatic shut-down is step interacts with an obstacle. The step is made of heavy-gauge steel and sealed wiring connectors will help keep the weather elements out to provided for longer use life.

  • 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...

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

  • Yes, the JT Strong Arm Stabilizer System # LC191023 will work with your LCI Level Up System. I checked with Lippert and found that you can use the JT's Strong Arm Jack Stabilizer Kit # LC191023 with the adapter lugs # LC314592. For your LCI level up system will need a quantity of 6 adapter lugs, these are sold as a quantity of 2 on our site. The manufacture also provided me with instructions I will be sending you in a separate email. I have linked the adapter lugs to this page...

  • Recommended Landing Gear For 1993 Holiday Rambler 36WBRK
  • For your 1993 Holiday Rambler, the dimensions you gave were not standard. We don't have anything that is a replacement for this size. The best I can do is recommend a replacement for your landing gear set. I recommend replacing your landing gear completely to have a compatible system. For that replacement you can use Lippert Components Universal Mount Power Landing Gear Kit - 6,000 lbs, # LC333964. This system will have the power front landing gear that is standard on most RV's produced...

  • 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.

  • What is the Difference Between the Trailair Air Ride and Flex Air for a Lippert 1621 Pin Box
  • Even though both the Trailair Air Ride # LC158778 and the Trailair Flex Air # LC369535 look similar and incorporate the air bag and shock to help improve your towing experience, the Flex Air has a few upgrades that the Air Ride does not have. The 2 things that separate these 2 5th wheel pin boxes is that the Flex Air has a rubber compound that is built into the head assembly which really helps to absorb road shock. The Flex Air also has a pivoting head which gives you controlled back...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Which TrailAir Replacement Pin Box for 18K Toy Hauler with Lippert 1621 OEM Pin Box
  • There are two L05 replacement pin boxes, as you have found. The # LC158778 is the standard air ride pin box that uses an airbag to reduce bouncing and jarring. The TrailAir Flex Air, part # LC328492 has the same air bag, but also adds a cushioned pivoting head to reduce road shock and limit chucking. If the fully loaded weight of your Toy Hauler does not exceed its 18K capacity, you can use either pin box. If you are right at 18K, I would recommend you go with the standard TrailAir with...

  • 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...
