Ways to Power an Electric Trailer Jack without a Trailer Battery  


I saw a post on your website that explained how to convert a Bulldog electric jack to using a 7 way connector. Im interested in the Atwood product and wondering if it could be converted similarly to either the 4 flat or 7 way connector. I called Atwood tech support and the lady there said I dont know how you would go about doing that - ask a dealer.

Typically we recommend running a powered jack like the Stromberg Carlson Electric Trailer Jack # JET-5000, from a 12 volt battery, but if you wanted to run it to a 7-way you would need to run the power wire to the 12 volt accessory circuit of your 7-way.

There would not be a way to run this product to a 4-way since there isn't a 12 volt power source on 4-ways. If you have a 4-way you would need to convert it to a fully functional 7-way first. For that you would want to use a 4 to 7-way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions for the product for you to check out also.
