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...

  • 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.

  • 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 Pick Out RV Landing Gear that Will Bolt Up to 2011 Keystone Cougar 291RLS
  • To pick out landing gear that will bolt right up to your 2011 Keystone Cougar 291RLS will require you to measure the distance between the mounting brackets (underside of top bracket to top of lower bracket as shown in the diagram). If that distance is 17-1/2 inches then you would want to go with a Bulldog set like the part # BD500161. The jacks would be the correct replacement for Lippert, Venture, and Atwood landing gear, as well as those from a few other manufacturers. If your frame...

  • Replacement Landing Gear Legs for a 2002 Fleetwood Terry 5th Wheel Trailer
  • How are you measuring the weld stops on the landing gear legs, inside to inside A), outside to outside B), or center to center? If the outer tube C) on your existing landing gear leg measures 33-1/2" long then the inside to inside measurement should be 19-1/2" and the outside to outside measurement should be 21-1/2". If this is the case then you will want to use the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set part # LG-4. If your weld stops do not match the above then it is not a common...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Landing Gear with 17-1/2" Between Mounting Brackets!
  • I have the perfect solution for you! The Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set # LG-2 has the same 17-1/2" measurement between the mounting brackets and the legs measure 33-1/2"! The only thing that you need to check is the weight capacity of 5,500 lbs for the whole unit and the total lift of 34-7/8". If this lets you level your trailer then this is exactly what you need!

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Landing Gear for 2010 Open Range 5th-Wheel Trailer
  • For your 2010 Open Range 5th-Wheel Trailer, I recommend looking at the Stromberg Carlson Electric Landing Gear Set # LG-4. Each leg on this set is 33-1/2 inches tall and provides up to 19-7/8 inches of travel. It has a combined weight capacity of 6,500 pounds and the direct-drive motor will reduce strain on the jack for easy stabilization. To determine if this will fit with the brackets you already have welded to your trailer, you will want to take a measurement between them. The distance...

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

  • 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.

  • Replacement Landing Gear Follow Leg for 2003 Keystone Everest
  • We can get you un-stranded! The correct follow leg for your landing gear is going to depend on how long it is. If your leg measures 29-1/2" (see attached photo), you would need replacement # LG-179014, which can be used with most landing gear sets Atwood, Venture, and Lippert models. The same is true of replacement # LG-177201, which you would use if your leg measured 33-1/2". I've attached a link to a video review for you to take a look at as well.

  • I recommend going with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Carrier for A-Frame Trailers, # CC-275, and the Swagman Original 4 Bike Rack, # S64400, for your 2014 Airstream Sport Bambi. The Bike Bunk, # CC-275, mounts to the A-frame trailer tongue to allow you to carry any 2 inch hitch-mounted bike rack and has a 100 pound weight capacity. The Swagman Original, # S64400, was designed to provide lasting toughness and has a carrying capacity of 35 pounds per bike. Please...

  • Will a Bumper from a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Fit a 2002 Silverado 2500HD
  • The first generation of the Chevy Silverado includes latter half 1999 to 2006 models as well as 2007 Classic models. So a 2002 Silverado 2500 and a 2006 Silverado 2500 will have the same body style and should be able to use the same bumper. We also carry bumpers for your 2002 Silverado. I have included a link to them for you. I recommend the Perfect Match in chrome # 31013 but we also have it in black, # 32013

  • Stromberg-Carlson 5th wheel tail gate # VG-97-4000 does not have provisions to remount the factory back up camera on a 2013 Ford F-250 so it will have to be removed to use this particular tail gate. To remove it there are a couple of methods depending on the location of the camera.
