Expert Answers about Stromberg Carlson

  • How to Determine the Difference Between the New and Classic Body Styles for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The easiest way to tell the difference between the 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic and New Body Style is the tail gate or the tail lights. The new body style will have a large Chevy bow tie emblem in the center of the tail gate. It will also have red tail light assemblies. Take a look at the parts I have linked that show the new body style and the classic body style. If you have a classic model, you will need to use # VGM-99-4000. I do not believe the new body applied to the 2500 and 3500...

  • Replacement Landing Gear Drive Leg for a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Replacement landing gear leg # LG-179013 fits landing gear set # LG-1 and # LG-183708. The size of 5th wheel trailer landing gear is pretty much all the same. Some install differently than others. This particular type requires brackets welded directly to the trailer frame like in the picture I included. A set like # BD500161 on the other hand has brackets that get welded to the frame. If you are unsure of the brand you have it is possible that if you get a replacement leg of a different...

  • Troubleshooting Landing Gear Not Lifting 5th Wheel
  • Any powered landing gear or powered tongue jack will draw less power as it legs descend down toward the ground and much more as soon as they make contact and encounter resistance. This is a normal occurrence. In the same way, any jack - even a manual hand-crank type - requires less power (or force) when lowering the trailer than when lifting it. The cause for your powered landing gear losing steam could be any of several possibilities. These include the trailer's battery not being rated...

  • How to Tell the Difference Between 2007 Chevy or GMC Silverado or Sierra Old and New Body Styles
  • To determine if your 2007 GMC Sierra is the old or the new body style all you have to do is look at the back of the truck. If it is the old body style (Classic) then it will have amber turn signal lenses at the rear tail lights. New body style models will not have amber lenses and will also have a large logo in the center of the tailgate. I have included a picture showing old and new body styles side by side. The trucks are Silverados but the same differences apply to the Sierras. If...

  • How to Wire Up and Install Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack, # JET-3500
  • The Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack, # JET-3555, runs off a 12 volt battery. The best source for power would be from a 12 volt battery (like a car battery) mounted on the trailer. The red power wire on the Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack, # JET-3500, is the power wire and it will attach to the positive battery terminal on your trailer battery. First, remove the fuse in the in-line fuse holder on the red wire. Mount the jack to the trailer and tighten it down. The jack grounds through the mounting...

  • How to Carry a Bike Rack on the Front of a Trailer with Two Propane Tanks
  • The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer # CC-275 that you referenced would be a great option for allowing you to carry a bike rack above the dual propane tanks of your trailer. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this carrier is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info. You could use a strap like the part # SR18679 to secure...

  • Comparing Lippert and Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Landing Gear Lead Leg Kits
  • The Lippert Components 29-1/2-Inch Lead 5th Wheel RV Landing Gear Drop Leg # LC179013 and the Stromberg Carlson Replacement Lead Jack with Drop Leg # LG-179013 are virtually identical. If one fits your landing gear the other will too. Lippert Components is the OEM maker of almost all trailer frames and also of many trailer accessory items like jacks and landing gear. They also make the products as OEM items sold under other brand names like Stromberg Carlson.

  • Is the Stromberg Carlson # LG-179013 the Same as the Lippert Universal Fit Lead Jack # 179013
  • I spoke with my contact at Stromberg Carlson and the Replacement Lead Jack with Drop Leg, # LG-179013, is the same part as the Lippert Universal Fit Lead Landing Gear, # 179013. The only difference between the two products is that they are sold through different companies so the part numbers are slightly altered. If you were interested in a replacement follow jack with drop leg you can took at part # LG-179014 or the entire assembly is available with part # LG-1.

  • Availability of Replacement Lead Jack and Parts for Stromberg Carlson 5th Wheel Landing Gear # LG-1
  • The jack with the motor is referred to as the lead jack, while the other jack is called the follower. Since the jack on the motor side is in need of replacement, you would need the lead jack. The lead jack is not terribly difficult to replace. You would need to disconnect the drive rod that connects the two legs, remove the lead jack, install the replacement lead jack, and pull the motor and gearbox off the defective jack and install on the replacement. If you were using the Stromberg...

  • Troubleshooting Electric A-Frame Trailer Tongue Jack, # JET-3555 Blowing Fuses
  • You should be able to manually crank the Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack, # JET-3555, up and down by removing the rubber plug on the side and inserting the manual handle or a properly sized socket wrench. Turn clockwise to extend the jack and counter-clockwise to retract it. I spoke with one of our installers about the fuses blowing. He stated that the power wire could be shorting to ground or there could be an internal component that is shorting out. Make sure all ground connections are...

  • Difference Between Stromberg Carlson and Lippert Replacement Landing Gear Follow Legs

  • Recommended Dual-Motor Landing Gear To Replace Single Motor Landing Gear On Arctic Fox Fifth Wheel
  • With the measurements you said you have on your system the landing gear I recommend for you is the Stromberg Carlson Venture Landing Gear. You will need two of the lead legs, part # LG-177202, two gearboxes, part # LG-179015, two motors, part # LG-196308, and two switches for the landing gears, part # LG-145236. We do not have a dual-motor landing gear kit that would be a replacement for your landing gear.

  • Recommended Replacement Motor For Landing Gear With Atwood 75721
  • It sounds like the clutch in the motor may be failing on your Atwood landing gear. It may be slipping which is causing the clicking sound. Since you said helping the motor with the manual crank helps the gear box will not be the problem. The replacement motor you need is part # LG-142178. This will attach directly to the gear box you have and would be a great fit. I called my contact at Atwood and they told me the legs of the landing gear are what the weight capacity is based off...

  • 5th Wheel Landing Gear Motor Makes Loud Clicking Noise and Will Not Raise Trailer
  • It could be the motor but it could also be the screw/nut inside the jack leg that is causing the problem. Since you mentioned that it is hard to crank it manually I suspect that it is likely the screw and/or nut. On jacks that have an ACME screw the nut is fixed inside the jack and screw turns which raises or lowers the leg. On most screws the ends are crimped to prevent over extension causing the screw to come out of the nut. If the screw reaches that crimped part of the threads it...

  • Scissor Jack Recommendation to Replaced Damaged Ones on R Pod Trailer
  • For a pair of stabilizer jacks that would have more than enough capacity that would work well on your R-Pod I would recommend the Stromberg Carlson Trailer Scissor Jacks part # JSC-24. These have a 5k capacity per jack and would do a great job as long as you just use them for stability like you said you would. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Based on the part numbers you listed to replace the motor on your landing gear you can use part # LG-196308. Replacing the gearbox would be optional and for that you can use part # LG-179015.

  • Repair Kits for Venture Landing Gear Lead and Follower Legs
  • You should need repair kit # LG-146059 for the lead leg and # LG-146060 for the follower leg. Both Venture and Stromberg Carlson landing gear are made by Lippert and most if not all parts are interchangeable.

  • Recommended Spare Tire Carrier for 75 Pound Class C Motorhome Dually Wheel
  • I do have a solution for you, however as you referenced, the Stromberg Carlson Folding Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-2 will not work for Class C motorhome tires or dual rim wheels. In order to mount your 75 pound Class C tire, I recommend looking into a hitch-mounted carrier like the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # C31006. This is compatible with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and will provide the capacity needed to safely secure your dually axle wheel and tire....

  • Stromberg-Carlson Replacement Follow Jack for 5th Wheel Landing Gear Models LG-1 and LG-183708
  • The Stromberg-Carlson Replacement Follow Jack for 5th Wheel Landing Gear, part # LG-179014, is a replacement for the non-driven side of the # LG-1 powered landing gear and # LG-183708 manual landing gear. Both of these landing gear products use weld-on installation and both have a 6000-lb weight rating. According to my research on the Forest River website, the Cardinal 35-foot 5th wheel trailer model 3030RS has a dry tongue weight of 2,550 lbs. A set of landing gear rated for 6000 lbs...

  • U-Bolt Recommendation to fit 4-Inch RV Bumper
  • The Bumper Mounted Tire Carrier # TR-1 that you referenced is designed to fit 4 inch bumpers, the u-bolts that are designed to fit this carrier are available separately. For that you would want the part # TR-2200. This should work well for you.

  • Backup Camera Compatibility with 5th Wheel Tailgate
  • For a 5th Wheel Tailgate like # VGD-10-4000, I recommend the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System with Flush Mount Camera # RVS-7707721 or the Rear View Safety Backup Camera System - Mirror with Monitor # RVS-772718 with this same camera. This is one of the more rare flush mounted cameras that will allow you to run the wires through the tailgate to give you a really clean look. You can mount the camera inside the composite tailgate or attach it to the outside. The outside lens diameter...

  • Replacement Landing Gear Legs for Set with Number VMC900R

  • Recommended Slide-Out Stabilizer Support for a Large 5th Wheel Slide-Out
  • The Ultra-Fab slide out supports # UF19-960003 will have a combined weight capacity of 1,400 pounds and an adjustable height between 26-47 inches. I like the quick-release handle for extremely easy height adjustment. You simply press the button to release the inner tube and adjust as necessary. I think these will be just fine for your large slide-out. The Stromberg Carlson slide-out support # JB20 or # JB30 both have a 10,000 pound weight capacity per jack. The # JB-20 can adjust between...

  • Can a Single Motor Venture Landing Gear Set be Converted to a Dual Motor System
  • To make the single motor landing gear into a dual-powered landing gear you will need to replace the existing follower leg with a lead leg # LC119102, add a new gear box LC276602, motor # LC142178, and switch # LC145236. It would be easier and cost less to just replace the whole system with a dual motor system such as # UF17-943010 rated for 12,000 pounds.

  • Replacement 3-Step Manual RV Steps with 4-Step Manual RV Steps
  • Manual RV steps # SMFP-4400 could work for you. This is a 4-step unit that is 27 inches wide overall and 12 inches deep (front to back) and 18-1/2 inches tall. None of the other 4-step options are as close in the measurements of what you have now. the 4-step model will hang down at least 4 inches more than the 3-step model when the steps are extended.

  • Converting Single Motor Stromberg Carlson Landing Gear to a Dual Motor Set Up
  • To upgrade a single motor Stromberg Carlson landing gear set to dual motors, you would need a replacement lead leg, # LG-179013 (the two legs would not be attached to each other in a dual motor set up), a gear box, # LG-179015, and the motor, # LG-217884. With all that you start getting close to the price of a complete kit with dual motors such as # UF17-943010.

Check out the install video I attached for the part # VGM-07-4000 to see how it's done.

I have attached a picture of the measurements for the bracket placements. If your current Venture landing gear uses these dimensions then you will not have to weld the brackets to your trailer.
