Rear Lippert electric jack

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2017 Keystone Laredo 298 SRL.  I have noticed when the rear power jack (Lippert) is in the up position, it is still very low and would easily drag if not on a flat level surface.  Any ideas?  All help is appreciated.  Thanks everyone.

  I am just guessing here, but I think you can raise the jacks by removing the bolts lifting it up and re bolting it.  You may need to use blocks under the jack foot because it may not touch the ground. I made jack blocks with wood 2x4's. I cut them one foot long. They are 3 boards wide and three and four boards high. You put 3 one way and 3 the other way. I use 2 1/2 in wood screws to attach them. The shorter the jack ram go out the more stable the trailer will be.

I had the same problem on a keystone outback. Specs from Lippert was minimum 7" when hooked up. I towed it about 12000 miles over 4 yrs had know problem. Did drag a couple times but no damage

Thank you.  I found I can gain some height by adjusting the 5th wheel (which needs to be done anyway).  My concern is driving into areas, off pavement, where the road is not as level or smooth.  I do appreciate your response, it makes me confident that the set up is actually done the correct way.

I have a 2016 Montana 3820FK with lippert jacks. I had to move them up to the top holes in the mounting brackets was very easy to do.

Good idea.  It was my first thought, but found there is not enough room from the top of the jack to the bottom of the frame to raise it.  Thank you for the reply and happy travels.
