Expert Reply:

According to the installation instructions for the Bulldog 2-Speed Tandem Landing Gear Set, # BD500153, this jack is to mount directly to the load-bearing member. Before mounting the jack confirm that there will be no interference from the tow vehicle, tongue, ground, or any other mounted accessories while stationary or in motion. Bulldog states that all welding must be done by an AWS certified welder. Three, 2 inch long, 1/4 inch fillet welds must be placed on both sides of the jack along the contacting surface. The welds should be as far apart as possible to maximize strength under load. If mounting in a tandem application, align the jacks carefully so they raise and lower together and share the load equally.
