Availability of Replacement Parts for RBW Landing Gear on 1989 Fleetwood Prowler 5th Wheel

Question:

1. What model landing gear do I need to look for regarding parts for a 1989 Prowler 5th wheel? 2. is it possible to get the inner nut or screw with nut inside for inside the leg? 3. Can I order the one side ?

Helpful Expert Reply:

I contacted Fleetwood RV, the maker of your 1989 Prowler 5th Wheel. Due to the age of the trailer they no longer have much information on it, but they advised that the original landing gear was electric (powered) and made by RBW. They could not tell me the weight of your 1989 5th wheel trailer nor the particular model nor weight rating of your landing gear.

AL-KO no longer manufactures replacement parts for RBW landing gear, but there are companies offering some parts. In order to identify correct replacement parts you will need to know the model number and capacity of your landing gear. Usually, you can find the model information directly on top of the jack or landing gear, or sometimes it is near the bottom of the outer tube. A third place to check would be the housing that covers the gears. If you cannot find it in any of these places, it may be in the owners manual literature.

To determine if you can just replace the inner parts and use your existing jack, you will want to inspect the whole jack to make sure everything is structurally sound. Replacing the internal components in landing gear is not very hard if you have some mechanical ability.

The set of Atwood landing gear you reviewed, part # 75333, is a set of manual (crank-powered) landing gear rated at 6000 lbs. An optional motor can be added to this, part # 75391, but note this reduces the jack capacity to 5000 lbs. We offer individual replacement driver-leg and follower-leg assemblies for this jack, parts # 71488 and # 71415.

I have included a link to our product page for landing gear jacks where you can review various items in a range of capacities.
