Trailer Valet

When the time comes to move or align your unhitched trailer, the Trailer Valet 5X is at your service. Instead of driving your vehicle to your trailer, use this heavy-duty jack to drive your trailer to your hitch. This saves you the time and frustration of having to repeatedly back up your vehicle to align the hitch ball with your trailer's coupler.


The Trailer Valet 5X also makes it easy to park or move your trailer into tight spots and to position it in a garage. And it allows you to take corners and make slight adjustments in steering while the trailer is moving. No more attempting to back the trailer in with your vehicle.


After hookup, just flip the Trailer Valet 5X up to store it alongside your trailer frame. Then swivel it back down for use when you arrive at your destination. Simply use the jack function to raise the trailer so you can unhook it from the ball, then lower the Trailer Valet 5X to get your trailer level and into position.


How to Operate the Trailer Valet 5X


Trailer Valet 5X Diagram

  1. The jack crank raises and lowers the trailer tongue.
  2. The hand crank powers the chain drive system and can be positioned on either side of the unit in either high or low gear.
  3. The steering handle allows you to navigate the trailer to exactly where you want it.
  4. The gears allow you to switch the hand crank to adjust for inclined and flat ground.

Chain Drive System

The Trailer Valet 5X is easy to operate. The hand-crank-powered chain drive system can be operated in either high gear or low gear, depending on the terrain. You can make operation even easier by adding a drill attachment (TVDA - sold separately), which allows you to use a cordless drill (not included) instead of the hand crank. The drive system activates the dual positraction wheels. Both wheels are engaged while the Trailer Valet 5X is moving straight - in either forward or reverse. When you need to make a turn, one of the wheels disengages and freewheels, allowing the other wheel to move the trailer. All you have to do is turn the crank that powers the drive system and direct the Trailer Valet 5X with the steering handle. When you straighten the steering handle back up, the other wheel reengages and the Trailer Valet 5X drives straight again.


Brake Positions

The Trailer Valet 5X also includes an auto-brake function that acts as a wheel chock to keep your trailer in place. When the steering handle is raised up, the drive system is engaged. The handle automatically falls down when it is released, bringing the wheels to an immediate halt. This safety feature prevents your trailer from running away from you. The handle also locks when down, keeping your trailer level and secure for storage. Wheel chocks should still be used.


How to Install the Trailer Valet 5X


Bracket

A heavy-duty bracket clamps the jack to your trailer's tongue with the included mounting hardware. Multiple holes in the bracket allow you to adjust for trailer frames up to 6 inches tall, and the bolts are long enough to accommodate frames up to 2-3/4 inches wide. Just tighten the bolts and you're ready to use the Trailer Valet 5X.

Faulty out of the box but easy fix. My unit would only drive backward with a horrible clicking sound and could not go forward at all. I took the front cover off and found the brake post was not clearing the brake clutch even when the brake handle was held fully up. I used my Dremel to shave about 1/8th inch of metal off the corner of the brake post. Now it goes smoothly forward and back without clicking and brake still works. Nice solid unit, but I'd have to hope that basic function should be tested before shipping out a product like this!

I received the Trailer Valet in a heavy duty oversized box that protected the product box extremely well. Everything was well packed. The mounting bracket didn’t match up with the original 1992 Four Winns factory bracket, of course, but turning it sideways, it fit right over the original mounting plate. This presented the proper height and clearances. I used shorter bolts(10 mm) for the mounting. It is a perfect fit! The Valet works very. It is strong and very well built. Moving the 19’ boat is so easy to move!


Comments
Fantastic problem solving device! I have no more than 2 inches of “slop” to place my boat in my garage. The Valet allows a very unforgiving fit with little work.

Worked for a heavy Airstream(28’) on a hill. I was impressed. Also was impressed with Paula, who I spoke with on the phone. She helped me zero in on exactly the right product. I highly recommend etrailer and if you need to move around heavy trailers in tight spots, this wheeled jack should do the trick. I used it on a driveway though, so I’m not positive on the off-road capabilities.

I am 70 years old and needed an easier way to back my Bass Tracker Pro Team 175 boat into it's parking space on the side of my home. Backing the boat in using my vehicle was difficult. Sometimes I could do it on one try and other times I needed several tries to get it in position. I decided to buy the Trailer Valet and see if I could use it to maneuver my boat the last 20 feet into it's parking space. My boat parking area is paved and level. My boat is about 17 foot long and weighs about 2300 pounds with the trailer and gear. The Trailer Valet works very well with my boat. I also now use the Trailer Valet to position the trailer hitch over the ball when I am connecting the boat to my vehicle. I have used both the manual crank handle and a 14.4 volt cordless drill to move my boat. They both work well, but you have to be careful when using a cordless drill that you don't twist your wrist. You need a fairly level paved surface for the Trailer Valet to work well. I once tried using it on a rough dirt parking area and the drive wheels would just spin in the dirt. The Trailer Valet is well made and I have not had any problems with the equipment. When my boat is stored, I use a jack under tongue of the boat trailer so that there is no weight on the Trailer Valet wheels.

I recently purchased a dual axle 16 foot trailer to haul 2 quads and 4 dirt bikes. My hope was that the trailer will be stored in my backyard without paying storage fees at some storage lot. Unfortunately, my alley is quite narrow, my gate is not too wide, my backyard is grass, and there is a hill down to where I need to store the trailer. Trying to drag the trailer with a quad was scary at best. There is no way that I can drag the trailer around with some powerless trailer dolly at my age. The Trailer Valet came to the rescue! Installation was fairly quick and simple. I did follow the directions and placed the mounting bracket low on the trailer tongue and the mount clamp connector on it low as well. I did make a quick trip to the neighborhood hardware store for proper length bolts and nylon lock nuts. The provided bolts were too long for my specific needs. They should be fine for a full size RV trailer. The high gear is good for going downhill. The automatic brake works well as I soon found out. The low gear gets the trailer back up and out of the yard, even over grass. I did have to crank the trailer tongue up higher to get better traction in the grass, but was expected with a dual axle. Simply put, there is no way that I could get that trailer in and out of my backyard in a safe and easy manner without the Trailer Valet. I do the job all by myself, and I did not spend a pile more for some powered unit to do the job. I will be getting another mounting bracket to use the Trailer Valet on my RV Trailer. In my opinion, there is no better solution at that price level.


Comments
Pete, I am looking at purchasing a trailer valet. You stated in your reviews that it worked on a grassey incline is that true?. I dont want to purchase it if it doesnt. I have about a 125 foot strecth between front and back of house. I have a 14 aluminum boat and trailer

Yes, I have a fairly aggressive grassy incline in my yard that I must go up or down due to irrigation. I have found that when going up, I crank the tongue up to put more pressure on the Trailer Valet tires, then they get traction. Check the tire pressure when you are going to use it, and check the tires on the trailer, too. Please note that the valet tires may not work well in mud, but reasonably dry grass is fine. My trailer comes in at around 900 lbs, so I have to use the lower gear most of the time when going uphill, and for manipulation around the truck. Take the Valet off when not in use, or it will rust a bit outside. Use your trailer tongue jack instead of the Valet when not in use. I take the rig off while driving. I want the better clearance, and I do not want to donate it when I go for gas or a meal on the road. Biggest issue I have is that the trailer tires start to sink in the grass and soft dirt during storage outside. Getting it going at first can be an issue due to the trailer sinking down a bit from irrigation and weight, but that is not the valets fault. Hope this helps.

Yes I'm happy. A product that does what it advertises. Hesitant to spend the money, video's found on Etrailer and youtube convinced us. Chronic back, knee and shoulder issues from 30 years of fire department work slowed our boating down due to the issues with hand pushing the trailer. No more! I understand the theory behind step-down gear advantage but was still shocked at how non-stressful and smooth it is to use the Valet up our slope to re-park in the garage. We opt to keep the regular tongue jack installed and remove the Valet (the trailer bracket stays in place of course) to reduce envious eyes when the trailer is parked at busy marina's...glad the option is built in, attaching it to the bracket when we return home is a snap. Its a solid unit, construction and welds show quality workmanship. Changes? A bit of an expanded instruction manual with a larger print....it is pretty tough on old eyes. Would I buy it again now that we've used it a few times? YES.

No changes to the reviewed offered a year ago, it works as well as I had hoped and has given me confidence to do what had been a daunting job of garaging. A shot of lube to the chain has been the only maintenance required over the past 12 months.

I have an extremely narrow area that I cannot back up my boat between the side of my house and fence. My truck cannot make the turn required and it is slightly uphill. With the drill attachment and my 18 volt brush less drill moving the boat into place using the Trailer Valet is an easy task that I could not do without this device. It was the deciding factor that allowed me to purchase the boat.

Still works perfectly. Very happy with my purchase.

The Trailer Valet was installed and works perfectly for my needs. Since my car hauler is a Featherlite aluminum trailer with a deck that covers the frame, I had to attach the unit by drilling holes in the frame and installing the mount with nuts and bolts. I did make measurements to make sure of proper placement of the mount so that the unit could be stowed when not in use. So far it works great. I have not tried to use the Valet with a car loaded on the trailer but I have no reason to believe it would not work as advertised.

The trailer mover works but with my 20' Tige is significantly harder to move than the video reviews I saw before ordering it. The tires didn't move well at all in dirt and gravel but that should be expected by looking at the tire tread. I definitely worked up a sweat moving my boat but this works so much better than just pushing the boat around on the flimsy wheeled jack stand that was on the trailer.


Comments
Funny, i have the exact same DHM boat trailer as you and was doing research on what to replace it with. I ran across this thing and it seems like a great idea. Thanks a ton for posting those pictures! Im pushing the published limits as my boat is a 23 and total weight is 5,000lbs. Hopefully there is engineering safety factors built in!

It is a little early for a product review as I have only owned it for 2 days. Initial thoughts: Install was VERY easy and only took 10 minutes start to finish. I had our 2011 Z-8 in the back which is loose gravel, the twin wheels hold the weight with ease without sinking in. However, when I tried it for the first time the wheels dug themselves into a small hole and would not move the boat. Pretty sure it was all on me and where I had last parked the boat but it was getting dark and I did not feel the need to hook up and move it to solid ground because I am pretty confident it will perform as advertised once I do. I will at that point follow up with a more accurate review........


Comments
After a year I am still impressed! I read the reviews before purchase and the only flaw was moving with the jack extended there was a tendency to bend the jack. I always lower it which only takes a few moments before moving it and have never had a problem. I does however lack traction in gravel if you have it mounted on a heavy trailer like I do, Blacktop and concrete is where it shines. Simply back up in the vicinity of the hitch and finish the hookup with the jack. No more in and out of the truck until the ball is lined up! Definitely worth the money and would buy another without hesitation!

First had a steel plate welded to [email protected] trailer frame to close 3 sided channel into full rectangular box and strengthen frame to prevent distortion from weight of jack. Attaching mount to frame really needed 3 hands, particularly to ensure level mounting, but nothing too difficult to accomplish. Blocked up frame and removed old worn wheel jack. Put mount on frame side closest to old wheel jack. Trailer Valet provides good support and mobility on pavement. Have not tested on gravel or dirt yet. Only downside is that built-in braking mechanism does not have a lock for release. You must apply force to steering handle at same time. This actually makes it more difficult for one person to guide and move [email protected] for fine maneuvering/clearance because you cannot see around the trailer while turning the crank. This is a small inconvenience which requires pauses and checking clearance. The clips and cotter pin security are convenient and secure - very good design. Because my [email protected] has a recommended tongue height of only 16 inches, had to place jack mount "upside-down" on frame to get good clearance for jack wheels but with light tongue weight, this is not a problem. With reinforced trailer frame mod, there is no deflection or distortion. Finally, used a utility knife to trim the plastic trailer jack/brake cover to fit around new jack mount and set it back in place for the sake of appearance.

With a tight fit in my garage I was looking for an easier way to move the boat in and out. The trailer valet solved my problem! Quick install and easy to use, you can rotate and leave on the trailer for travel however I will just pull the pin and toss it in the truck. Product is heavier than I expected around 40 lbs so it's not light when you remove it, but not terrible. Easily moves my 17' boat and trailer with minimal effort cranking!!

I have not had the opportunity to use it yet, but it appears to be very well made. I’ve done business with etrailer in the past and everything I’ve purchased from them is very high quality and at an affordable price. I have no doubt this will perform as stated and expected.

Excellent add-on to my travel trailer. No longer do I need to back up my trailer into my driveway (I pull right in and turn it around using the trailer valet). No longer backing my car up multiple times to line up the hitch to the trailer ( I use the trailer valet to move the trailer to the hitch and even to nudge the trailer to secure the ball to the trailer tongue). I have also used it to move the trailer tire onto a leveling block at the campground. My trailer is ~3000 lbs with a tongue weight of ~300 lbs. Have no trouble moving it on my concrete apron, however at the campground, I had to use a board under the tires to get the required traction the on gravel/sand. Before each use, I confirmed 85 lbs pressure in the tires by connecting a small 12V compressor with an integral pressure gauge and it works fine. While towing it stores fine on the trailer without interfering with the weight distribution bars, however, I do have to remove the bar support bracket in order to mount the Trailer Valet in the configuration required to move the trailer (the support bracket has 2 nuts that need to be removed), a small inconvenience compared to all of the above benefits.

Trailer Valet allows me to move my 4800 pound boat & trailer with ease. It not only allows me to backup into my tight angle parking spot but now I can move it forward without hooking up the pickup truck. I can Valet forward 15 feet and keep the parking spot clean. What a nice investment. I use the Drill Attachment with my standard 3/8 electric drill. I might invest in a cordless drill since this works so well

2 year review: I purchased the Trailer Valet 5X from etrailer two years ago. I have been pleased with the product and use it several times a week to move my 3500# double axle bass boat in and out of my garage. I believe it is one of the safest ways to move a trailer of this type. I only use it on a concrete surface with minimal grade. I do have to turn my trailer at some pretty sharp angles which requires the use of a thick mil plastic sheet on the garage floor. I always use the drill attachment and the low gear driveshaft. Unfortunately, this has led to a problem that I believe has resulted from a design flaw. I suspect anyone that uses there Trailer Valet as much as I do with the drill attachment will eventually have the same issue. The issue is that the bushings on the driveshafts are made of soft brass and the surface they rest on in the bearing housing is steel. As the bushings spin, they eventually are cut by the sharp steel edge of the housing. With enough use, the steel cuts completely through the bushings and the driveshaft begins to wear the bearing housing. I hope the folks that make the Trailer Valet fix this design flaw because it really is a great product otherwise.

Super for being able to move my trailer around without having to hitch it up to the truck. Good for tight parking spaces too - easier to maneuver than when it's attached to the truck and trying to back it into a spot without enough room for the truck. I'm using it on a dual-axle 8x14' enclosed trailer at about 3500lbs.



- STC-V211
by:

Appears to well built and works great as advertised, You can see I was able to place the trailer in a very tight spot so as not to take up any more room than needed. With a double axel I need to use the top wind on the trailer mover to lift the front axel high enough off the ground, almost free wheeling, to make tight turns, otherwise the tires on the front axel grab the ground and wont let you do any sharp turns, but lifting is easy with the trailer mover. I did have to mount the hardware far enough forward so that the front trailer door could swing open. When Im not using the trailer, I just pull the stow pin and remove the trailer mover to indoor storage! Also the product was shipped promptly and received incredibly fast as if I ordered it from [other online retailer], so watch out [other online retailer] you have some competition!

I've recently installed the STC-V211 Trailer Valet on my bass boat trailer. I ordered this to ease moving my bass boat into and out of the rear corner of my shop. To say the fit is tight is an understatement, there is 2 inches clearance for the prop and a scant 1 inch between the ball mount and the front bumper of a fully restored classic car. For years I pulled it in and out by hand, but I'm not as young as I used to be. The Trailer Valet gives me so much more control, I can pass within 3/4 inch of the car bumper without fear of collision. It does the work of moving the trailer that my back used to do. I did fabricate a mount for my trailer that is smaller than the supplied mount purely to satisfy my own sense of aesthetics. That's the good, now for the not so good, the crank handle socket split on the corner on its very first use. (see photo) I was a bit disappointed as the rest of the unit seems to be well built. I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come. Overall a bit spendy but does a good job.

I use this product on a 21’ bass boat trailer with tandem axle. Unfortunately the boat will not fit Square in my 2 car garage. I checked some alternatives and found this product in an issue of a fishing magazine. After 1 year, I’m very pleased with how well it moves the load in and out. The previous owner pushed this boat into his garage due to a basement garage with no access of backing it in with his truck. He now has neck and back problems and that’s probably why. Most people are unaware of this product, but they’re always curious of how it works. I always recommend it to anyone that asks about it. Just check it regularly and make sure everything is tight and lube the chain annually. Great product and I’m glad I made the investment.

I like the functionality quite a bit, but I'm not sure this is a great choice for boat trailers. Especially of exposed to Salt water. The chain is pretty rusty already and getting harder to crank. Also the powder coating is flaking off pretty badly and rust is creeping in at a fairly rapid rate. Could just be a salt water exposure issue so if you don't intend to use it in salt water, you might fair better. If it wasn't for the rusting issues, I'd give it a 4 star for sure.

Just installed this item on my boat trailer, and ordered an additional bracket for my cargo trailer. Trailer Valet 5X solves my storage problem.... do not have enough room to back trailers in to the parking pad without damaging trailer, truck, or fence.

Pros: Mechanical advantage, relatively easy maneuverability. Cons: - Tire sidewalls tend to fold over some when turning (see picture). Increasing tire pressure helps. - Squeals like the brakes on a city bus. Even though always stored indoors. No good way to lubricate without taking the whole thing apart. Overall: Works as advertised. I move around a dual axle boat trailer with a total weight of just under 4400 pounds.



- STC-V211
by:

Because my trailer’s parking spot is perpendicular to the alley, and limited maneuvering room for my truck, the Trailer Valet is the perfect way to turn parking the trailer from a difficult ordeal to an easy exact maneuver. It was a very worthwhile investment.

    I went to our warehouse and took some measurements of the Trailer Valet 5X, part # STC-V211 for you. I have attached a photo of the # STC-V211 with the dimensions noted. From the top mounting bolt on the mounting bracket to the top of the handle it measures 9-1/2 inches. From the top of the mounting bracket to the top of the handle it measures 8-1/2 inches. From the center of the crank handle where it attaches to the top of the jack to the outside edge of the crank handle, it measures...

  • How to Install Trailer Valet # STC-V211 on Car Hauler Trailer with Weight-Distribution Hitch
    Trailer jacks like the popular Trailer Valet # STC-V211 install on the sides of the trailer frame in the same area as the lift brackets for a weight distribution (WD) system - please see the linked photo. Since the WD system cannot be re-positioned (there is only one right way to install it) you will need to find a way to create space for the jack to mount. If there is simply no room for it, you may need to have a new steel crosspiece welded to the frame to create a mounting point for...

  • Could Trailer Valet 5x Be Used on 5,000 lb Trailer
    That's going to be really close to the capacity for the Trailer Valet 5x you referenced part # STC-V211. This jack has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity which your 5k trailer could have a tongue weight between 500 and 750 lbs so you would need to first determine that. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight as well.

  • Trailer Valet 5X Maneuverability On Gravel Pad
    The pneumatic tires on the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover - Topwind - 15" Lift - 500 lbs # STC-V211 will be able to operate on gravel without assistance if the gravel is packed. If the gravel is loose, you can use plywood or any other material that will allow the tires to get traction. The maneuverability will not be an issue as long as the tires can grab onto something. Normal gravel shouldn't be an issue unless there is uneven ground or extremely loose and dense stone.

  • How to Correct Air Leaking from Tires on Trailer Valet Trailer Mover STC-V211
    If the pneumatic tires on your Trailer Valet # STC-V211 are needing to be aired up each time you use your trailer I suggest either using a tire sealer product like Slime Tire Sealant # SLM10007 or if that does not solve the issue replacing your tires' inner tubes with part # TVIT. The tire on my wheelbarrow used to leak slowly until I applied some sealant. Since the sealant option is less costly I suggest trying that before replacing the inner tubes. The main reason solid tires are...

  • Trailer Dolly Recommendation for 1,000 lb Boat on Trailer
    Before swapping out dollies you may want to try to see if putting more tongue weight on your trailer would give you better traction for your Trailer Valet 5X # STC-V211. Since it sounds like you have a bit of weight at the back of the boat it could be that there isn't much pressure on the tires which is why you're having trouble. The only other option, aside from using one of the Trailer Valet remote controls like part # TVRVR3, is to use the manual CE Smith Heavy Duty Trailer Dolly...

  • Can the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack # STC-V211 Work in Gravel
    Most people don't have great luck with the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack # STC-V211 if the gravel is loose. If it is very tight packed gravel and the driveway is mainly flat you would probably be fine. Otherwise you are going to need a large piece of plywood.

  • How to Install the Security Bolt on the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack Part # STC-V211
    It sounds like you are referring to the security bolt which is part 21b in the attached diagram. The security bolt was designed to keep the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211 in place when the device is rotated to the stow position, and as an extra safety precaution to prevent theft. It does not inhibit the device from being used properly. If you plan to remove the Trailer Valet after every use then you have the option of not installing the bolt and keeping it somewhere safe. Should you choose...

  • Can Longer Bolts Be Used for Trailer Valet 5X to Fit 3 Inch Wide Trailer Frame
    I spoke with my contact at Trailer Valet and he confirmed that you can purchase longer bolts to fit the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 around your trailer's 3 inch wide tongue. I recommend using Grade 8, 1/4 inch, stainless steel bolts to install the Trailer Valet 5X. I confirmed with my contact at Trailer Valet that the bolts included with the Trailer Valet 5X # STC-V211 are 1/4 inch diameter by 4 inches long. It could be possible that these bolts would fit...

  • Jack with Drive Wheels Recommendation for a Trailer in a Grassy Area
    It sounds like you are looking for something like the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211. This is a jack that also features a handle that can be cranked which will turn the wheels of the jack (which are rubber), to allow you to move the trailer around in a controlled manner. Since your trailer is 3,600 lbs this jack should have enough capacity as it is rated for up to 500 lbs of tongue weight. The only issue is that our customers who have tried this jack on grassy areas have had mixed results....

  • High and Low Gear and Slipping Tires On the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover
    On the Trailer Valet, # STC-V211, the top gear is the high gear and requires less effort to turn the handle but moves the wheels slower. The bottom gear is low gear, requires more effort to turn the handle, but moves the wheels faster. If the tires are slipping then first go to high gear to move the wheels slower. Having more tongue weight would also help. This is similar to the idea of adding weight to the back of a truck in winter time to lessen the chance of the rear wheels sliding...

  • Could the Trailer Valet Be Used with a Weight Distribution System
    The swivel assembly of the Trailer Valet part # STC-V211 would allow it to swivel either forward or back if needed. If you have a weight distribution system most likely you would have to install this jack behind the system or you would have to only use one system or the other as they would most likely interfere.

  • Will the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 Fit a 2011 Jayco Pop-up Camper
    The installation bracket for the Trailer Valet # STC-V211 that you referenced takes up to 8 inches of space to mount on the trailer frame. If you have enough room to mount the unit, you should be fine being able to swivel it into position to travel because you should not have anything else extending over the side-rails of your trailer. In the picture I have attached are the measurements from the actual # STC-V211 we have on site. From the bottom of the wheel to the top of the unit while...

  • Dimensions for Mounting Trailer Valet # STC-V211
    As you noted, the mounting bracket on the Trailer Valet Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 requires 8 inches of space to mount. If the crossbeams on your trailer frame are roughly 5 inches apart, not including the width of the beams as shown in Image #1, it would be a very tight fit for the installation bracket. Another consideration. Based on your photograph (image #1), it doesn't appear that you will have enough space to be able to swivel the trailer valet into travel position....

  • Bolt-On Swivel Jack Options for 6" Tall Trailer Frames
    The only bolt-on swivel jack we have that works with 6" tall trailer frames is the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover part # STC-V211. The Trailer Valet has a 500 lb tongue weight capacity and works with frame rails up to 2-3/4" wide x 6" tall. In addition to featuring a bolt on tongue jack, the Trailer Valet as the name states doubles as a trailer dolly which will easily allow one person to move their trailer around. The dolly has integrated brakes which keep it from rolling....

  • How to Access Chain Drive and Gears for Inspection on a Trailer Valet Jack and Trailer Mover
    There are 2 chain drives in the Trailer Valet # STC-V211. You can see if there is any damage, broken teeth on a gear, loose parts and so on by removing the side cover, part number 9 in the included illustration. To me it sounds like a broken tooth on a gear but once you have the cover off you will be able to determine that. When you are inspecting it the weight has to be off of the Trailer Valet so you will need to support the trailer another way such as having it coupled to a vehicle.

  • Trailer Valet 5X on Trailer With Propane Tanks on the Tongue
    The Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack and Trailer Mover # STC-V211 can work in terms of jacking your trailer up and moving it; however, it is highly unlikely it will be able to be mounted in the horizontal position as there probably won't be enough room on the frame. You can take a measurement of the room you have on the frame, and compare that to the Valet 5X, which measures 28" tall x 18-1/2" wide x 12-1/2" long.

The appearance will vary depending on how the photography was done and on the size and type of viewing device (PC screen vs. Smartphone). The 5X is rated for 500-lbs Trailer Valet also offers higher-rated versions, parts # TVXL2 and # TVXL25, each of which has a 1000-lb tongue weight rating. These units are indeed finished in black powder coat.

  • Can Trailer Valet 5X Be Used On Either Side of Trailer Tongue
    The heavy-duty bracket for the Trailer Valet 5X Swivel Jack # STC-V211 referenced in your question can be mounted to either side of the trailer tongue. There is no need to specify a specific orientation when ordering the jack, as the same unit will work for either application. In fact if you check out the attached installation video, you can see that our installer initially wanted to mount the unit to the driver's side of the trailer but had to put it on the other side due to clearance...

  • What Voltage Drill Should be Used with Trailer Valet 5x
