Video Transcript for Lippert Offset Cable Spare Tire Winch Review

Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer. Today we're gonna be checking out the Lippert Spare Tire Winch What this component is going to allow you to do is bolt it up where you're trying to put it and give you a spot to hold your spare tire. And it's one that a lot of people are probably familiar with. It reminds me of ones you see on regular passenger cars and trucks for the most part. You're gonna have a rod that gets turned which will get to that in a minute. But when you turn it, it's gonna lower down.

Then obviously you put this through the hole on your spare tire and then you're able to crank it up and keep it in position. And it seems like people use this in a lot of different applications. Today we have a medium sized motorhome and they actually had a spare tire here originally but it was kind of just a chintzy bolt and they had some issues with it. Rusting and everything else, and they wanted to do away with it. And I could definitely understand that anyway because there's no way to lower the tire down.

It's something, it used to be a piece like that that essentially just unscrewed. And then the tire came flying down. So good luck getting it back up and taking it down safely. So now if they do happen to get a blowout or need to change their tire, they can go out back, lower this down safely, pull it out, put the old blown tire up here until they can go get it repaired or whatever. So pretty convenient.

But this is gonna work in just about any application really. And obviously there's things you're gonna have to look out for so it works properly, but you can bolt this up to your trailer, your regular utility trailer. It looks like someone used to one on a kayak trailer, a boat trailer. I mean, just about anything where you can bolt this to and you need a spare tire. As long as you got the room, you'll be in pretty good shape.

Something that's worth noting is it feels like it has a decent gear ratio. So one turn actually lowers the cable down a decent amount. So you're not gonna have to turn it for hours to get the signal lower. I know I've come across some of them where they just keep turning and turning and turning and nothing ever happens. Now, this one's about perfect, honestly, about how I'd want it. Low enough gear to where you can get the tire up easy, not have to fight it, but not take forever either. It is a steel cable there. With that said, this is going to handle up to 150 pounds. So every spare just about, you should be in pretty good shape. i\If your spare weighs over 150 pounds, you need to look at something else or that's a really, really heavy spare tire. So generally speaking, this should be good for just about any application. Something that I do wanna mention that I wish was a little bit different, especially in our application is the fact that our rod here that turns it is below our mounting points. And so whenever I bolted this up, I come to realize whenever you put the tire up that the tire would normally sit against these metal portion, these metal supports. But obviously with this rod here that's not gonna work 'cause the tire would hit it and pinch it. So I did have to change that up a little bit and put these pieces of steel here to give me the clearance I needed. And granted that's just any type of design. Every design is gonna be a little bit different, but just keep that in mind wherever you wanna mount this up where your spare tires gonna sit flat, it has to be below this portion there. If they could have put that up a little bit higher, changed things up a little bit, it might make it a little bit easier in some applications. But it's just gonna depend on what you're needing and what you're trying to do. And in order to operate this, you are going to need this rod as well. And this just uses a cotter pin, just clips onto the end of it. The cotter pin and hardware and everything else don't come included. You'll have to get that yourself. But by putting this on, that'll allow us to use a tool to actually turn this from the back of a motorhome and get our tire either down or up. Other than that though, I mean, not really a whole lot to it. It's just a winch really. The sides are made from metal. This piece here is plastic. It feels well-built. Everything feels tight and solid. And from here, it's really just trying to figure out if this is gonna work for you or not. So we'll go over some measurements and stuff. I pulled the cable out completely. If you're wondering about the length of it, it's about 45 inches, believe it or not. So comes down a pretty long way. So I feel like that ought to be good for most people. And if you're wondering if you're tire, if the center hole is really big and wondering if this will catch it, we'll grab that measurement real quick just to be on the safe side. Again, this'll probably work for just about all of them. So that's about seven inches there. Obviously, if it's smaller than that you're fine. You can do this to work it up through there. So it really don't matter how big the center hole is. This will more than likely fit through it there. And in terms of, if you're trying to figure out where to mount it or anything like that, the overall length of it. So from end to end is going to be about 6-1/4 inch. And as far as the width goes, we measure that again, that is going to be about 1-3/4" wide. So relatively compact and you should be able to sneak this thing quite a few different places and we'll get a height measurement too. I kinda forgot about that one here. So from the top to the very bottom, that's going to be about 4-1/4 inch. So just wanna talk about how to actually operate the spare tire winch. So I talked about that adapter tube that you're gonna need to put onto it, cotter pin it, and that's gonna run back to where you're trying to get to it. In our case, really the only thing I could do is put it behind our license plate and I drill the hole. And just like how you would do it with your car, you'd take your spare tire tool, put it in there and rotate it. So you can pick up this guy here. But honestly, if you had a four-way, like a regular tire iron or even just a socket set, a large socket set. All this is is a 3/4 inch, 6-point socket essentially, just welding onto this rod. But it's nice to have a complete package. You know where it is. So if you want this, you can grab it at etrailer, but I'll line that up there and perks no different than any other spare tire. You can just crank it up and down. And that'll finish up our look at of our Lippert Spare Tire Winch..

by:

The part is great it was the service that was very bad. Part was lost and etrailer did not help or understand the problem. They do not know usps tracking system or the rotten service usps provides. As long as they use usps my business will go elsewhere.



by:

This is the second winch I have purchased from etrailer. Great product and great company. I use them to move the spare tire from the rear bumper of the camper to under the tongue.



by:

Shipped right on time and appears to be of very good quality. I mounted it on the other side of my factory installed spare tire holder which had a mount bar going across the entire width of the bottom frame. Now I have a double spare.



by:

Holds spare tires up under travel trailer great after I fabricated a mount. A lot better than the nut and bold attachment that coachman had given me from the factory. Highly recommend this as an upgrade



by:

Spare tire winch seems well built. I got a little creative with the install.



by:

It was more heavy duty than what came with the trailer. All I had to do is some miner mounting adjustments.



by:

My wife and I love it.



by:

When I took our Class C to etrailer, they used their ingenuity and installed my spare tire carrier in a way that I could raise and lower it from the back of the unit instead of having to crawl under it. That was incredibly ingenious and I was totally thrilled!!! Great job etrailer!!!



by:

Still sitting on the floor of my garage



by:

Great idea but it drops down on bumpy roads, vibrations or any other time. had to put two eye hooks and a rachet strap to hold tire up. its sad that this quality is being pushed when there are lots of other models that work perfect. the price is to high for this quality



by:

Very good product. I would recommend it to all by my RV friends. I installed the spare tire winch under my Coleman 22 foot travel trailer.



by:

Looks well made and I have it installed. Need to attach a mechanism to raise and lower the tire

by:

This was perfect to get my spare tire hidden and out of the way for my kayak trailer

I purchased this a year ago and installed it under my RV. I have functioned it 3 times over the year to take down and replace a spare tire. Every tie it functioned as well as day one! Any one with concerns, dont have any this product works well.



by:

Fast shipping Great service as usual.



by:

Great item. Thanks



by:

Product was as described and easy to replace the one on my 2021 trailer that failed after using it twice. Praying this one lasts longer worked great storing the spare.

This product was ideal for my applicati on.



by:

I made a custom rack for the tire it works great

Still working as expected



by:

Spare winch and handle is good. Just need to add all the parts that are needed to complete what the customer needs.
Never seen any info on a LC1315411 adaptor which is needed. But Thanks to Tori she got me all lined out. Thank you Tori.

Wade

Very well



by:

The winch works great.



by:

Worked as planned



by:

The crank arm on my broken spare tire winch was welded to the shaft so, I ended up disassembling the gear body and installing the new gear and cable system to the old assembly to make it useful. May be a problem if you are not handy!

    I do have a recommendation for you as you will not be able to fit a Lippert Underchassis Double Bin Storage Unit w/ Spare Tire Carrier # LC125460 under your 2022 Entegra Odyssey 24B due to its low ground clearance.

  • Spare Tire Hoist for Motorhome
    The Lippert Components Spare Tire Winch # LC159056 that you referenced is currently the only item of its type that we offer.

We do have other types of spare tire carrier like hitch mount # C31006 and bumper mount # TR-1 but I realize neither of these replaces the convenience of being able to stow your spare under the coach.

This would make the tire sit offset on your A-frame. It will be harder to put on and remove the spare when that time comes due to the style of the carrier.

If you don't have one installed, you could use an adjustable width receiver hitch like # 13703. The hitch can be adjusted for frame widths ranging from 22-72 inches wide, so there isn't much it wouldn't fit.

  • Trailer Tire Offset vs Height of Winch Plus Tire Bracket
    Thank you for the details and the photo! I went out to the warehouse and found that the measurements you're asking about for the Lippert Spare Tire Winch with Offset Cable # LC159056 are 3-3/4" and 6" when it's wound all the way up. Your tire will be pushing against the trailer frame on that shorter end so I don't think you'll be needing any kind of spacer to keep it stable. Attached is a review video and photo of the requested dimensions for you to check out.

I recommend installing a beam in-between the crossbars to mount this spare tire winch.

  • Could Lippert Tire Winch Mount Fit 2020 Coachmen 240 FS
    It's possible the Lippert Spare Tire Winch with Offset Cable # LC159056 could attach to the studs you have under your RV frame but the studs would need to be 5-1/4 inch apart on center as this has mounting holes that are 5-1/4 inches apart. The width of the mounting bracket is 1-3/4 inches so the channel this would fit into would need to be at least that big.
