Replacement Powered Tongue Jack for A-Frame Trailer


Jack no longer working. I have been using the crank for about two weeks. Now the crank wont work. Anything I can do?


Expert Reply:

If initially your Husky powered trailer jack's motor stopped working, and now the jack's manual crank mechanism no long works either, then it sounds like at least the gearbox is damaged. The motor could be salvageable if it still seems to function (e.g. make some sound and rotate) but to eliminate any risk of having the jack fail on you again I suggest replacing it. This will be far easier than trying to re-build the gearbox.

The linked page will display all of our powered a-frame trailer jacks from brands like Husky, Atwood, Lippert and others. All use a standard a-frame mount.

I suggest you select a jack rated for no less than half of the trailer's gross weight. Using a jack rated for more weight than you really need it to handle usually means a longer working lifespan for the jack. You'll also want to note how much lift height you need from the jack. Our range of jacks offers lift from 14-inches up to 25-inches.

For a value-priced option you might consider the etrailer jack with footplate # EJ-3520-WBX. This jack is rated for 3500-lbs and provides 25-ionches of lift.
