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...

  • Generator Sliding Tray Recommendation for Enclosed Trailer that Hauls Race Car
  • The Stromberg Carlson Tray Slides for RV Cargo Compartment # KV-36 that you referenced has a 300 lb capacity and should work well for you as long as the cargo hold of your RV is large enough for the dimensions of your generator.

  • Recommended Replacement Landing Gear For Keystone Cougar 285 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The Venture brand was made by Lippert Components, so it is very likely that a Lippert landing gear jack will work for you. Based on the weight of your trailer, you will want the # LG-1 landing gear set, but we will want to measure to be sure this is the right size for you. The two things you will want to measure will be the distance of the black outer tube of the jack and the distance between the frame clamps (this measurement can differ depending on where the weld stops are located)....

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Landing Gear Motor, Gear Box and Switch for Model 1A065012-02-01

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Tongue of R-Pod With Electric Tongue Jack
  • To mount a bike rack to the tongue of your R-Pod you will want to start out by using the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275. This will give you a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening for you to use a bike rack with. From the top of the A-frame of your R-Pod to the top of the cross tube is 33-1/2 inches, which should clear your electric tongue jack, and it has a weight capacity of 100 lbs. The bike rack that I recommend using with...

  • Recommended 5th-Wheel Tailgate for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • For your 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty, I recommend the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Lock # VG-15-4000. I confirmed with Stromberg Carlson that this is the correct fit for your truck. This tailgate features a cutout for towing a 5th-wheel trailer as well as a keyed center release mechanism so you can lock the gate in a closed position. It will come with 2 keys and all the necessary installation hardware is also included. I have attached a video demonstration...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • How Does the Stromberg-Carlson RV Ladder Install to the Back of a Flat RV
  • Looking at the instructions if your RV is straight up and down in the back you simply will ignore the bold part of step G. basically the ladder will remain straight up and down like in the picture I have included. Basically you cut the the inner tube to length at the bottom, drill holes to reattach it to the upper portion and then the bends that curve in towards the RV get secured as per the instructions.

  • 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...

  • Are Replacement Parts For Scissor Jack Available
  • I spoke with my contact at Stromberg Carlson about replacement parts for the scissor jacks we offer like part # JSC-24-IND, and they told me they do not offer any replacement parts. I recommend replacing your current jack with the # JSC-24-IND. This is a 5,000 lb leveling jack that has measures 4 inches when retracted and 24 inches when extended. The required crank handle can be ordered separately and that part number is # JCH-1. If you choose to use a power drill to raise and lower...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Airstream Sport
  • 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...

  • Does the Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate # VGD-02-100 Use the Factory Cables
  • The Stromberg Carlson 100 Series 5th Wheel Tailgate # VGD-02-100 that you referenced uses the original cables that held your stock tailgate horizontal when open on your 2005 Dodge Ram. I attached a picture that was submitted by one of our customers that shows the cables being used with this tailgate.

  • 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.

  • How to Pick Out RV Landing Gear that Will Bolt Up to Trailer
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Forest River R-Pod
  • I'd recommend you use the Bike Rack Bunk adapter part # CC-275 to allow you to carry a bike rack over the propane tanks of your R-Pod. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this adapter is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Repair Kit for Venture VMC900R Lead Leg Which Will not Move
  • If the pin on the lead leg of your Venture VMC900R is sheared, you would need to use Lead Jack Repair Kit # LG-146059. Should you wind up needing a new leg, you would only need to measure the outside tube; I've added a photo showing you the length of the outer tube of Replacement Lead Leg # LC119102, which is what you'd need to measure. That would be the correct replacement for your landing gear if your current leg was 29-1/2". If it measured 33-1/2" you'd want to use Replacement Lead Leg...

Husky also offer their tailgate # HL15250 that can be upgraded later on using the add-on camera kit # HL15258.

  • 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...
