etrailer Camper Jack - A-Frame Jack - EJ-3527-BBX Review


Today, we're going to take a look at the etrailer A-frame electric jack with the foot plate, the seven-way plug and a 3,500 pound lift capacity. Now, this electric jack lets you raise or lower your A-frame trailer. The drop leg on it allows for increased lift and it'll save time when you're raising or lowering. It allows you an extra lift of about five and five eighths inches.Basically, there's four holes in the drop leg and you can remove this pin and clip, and put it in whatever desired location you need. The holes on it are about one and seven eighths inches between each hole. So, with four holes, it'll give you a maximum lift of about five and five eighths inches.On the front of this jack, there's two toggle switches right here on the front of the housing.

Let's you operate the jack. Over here is an on and off switch which will control this LED light right down here. The switch right over here, this will help extend or retract the jack itself, controls the up and down movement.Now, at the end of this video I am going to hook this up to some 12-volt powers and I'll show you the light and the switch, how it operates.The light is an LED light and it does illuminate at a downward angle to help you focus on the coupler. So, if it's at nighttime, it'll give you a nice, bright light to show you where to couple up to. Has this nice seven-way RV style plug, which will pull power from your vehicle's trailer connector.

It's a nice feature because you don't have to manually wire for power. A lot of your jacks will just have some pigtail wires coming out that you have to manually wire them up. This one just has a seven-way you plug into the trailer connector.It does also come with this nice emergency crank handle. This will allow you to manually operate the jack if needed if you don't have any power and you do have to raise or lower the jack. The crank has a three eighths inch size socket on the end here.

All you have to do is remove this cap at the top of the jack, take that socket, drop it in on the bolt, and then you'll be able to crank it up or down, whichever way you need. Now, when you're done, just take your cap and put that right back on, tighten it up.Now, the outer tube on this jack is a nice black powder coat finish on it. The inner tube and the foot plate is a zinc finish, so it helps resist corrosion. It's a very simple bolt-on installation. It's a standard three bolt installation, standard pattern that you'll see on your A-frame trailer.Few measurements on this.

The bracket height which will be- Now, this jack is in the fully retracted position, so the bracket height from the bottom here to the bracket itself, it's going to be right at nine inches when it's fully retracted. Now, the screw travel in this jack is 19 and a half inches. So, if we fully extend this, it'll get you extended measurement of 28 and a half inches.Now, the clearance which will be from the bottom of this bracket here to the very top of the jack, that's going to be right at 20 and a half inches. The total lift on this is going to be 25 and one eighths inches, which is basically the 19 and a half inch screw travel, and then if you fully extend the drop leg five and five eighths inches, it'll get you 25 and one eighths inches for a total lift.Outer tube diameter on the jack is two and a quarter inches. Inner tube diameter is two inches. Foot plate diameter is five and a half inches, and the lift capacity again is 3,500 pounds.So, what we're going to do here is I got some 12-volt power. Get our seven-way and we'll go ahead and hook our 12-volt power up to our seven-way. Make sure we got it connected. Let's try the light here. There we go. You can see the LED light turns it on, turns it off, and as I mentioned it's at a downward angle so it'll light up everything in front of the jack.Then, the jack itself, if you hit the fixed end, that'll be pushing the button up and you'll see it'll extend it. And again, as soon as you leave your finger off the switch, it automatically shuts it off. So, you can extend it how far you need it, and then if you need to retract, just push the button down to go retract the jack back down.Nice, smooth running jack. But, that should do it for the review on the etrailer A-frame electric jack with the foot plate, the seven-way plug, and a 3,500 pound weight capacity.
