How to Determine the Lift Capacity You Need in a Jack

A trailer jack is designed to lift the tongue of your trailer so you can connect the trailer coupler to your hitch ball. To do this, you'll need a jack with a lift capacity high enough to handle your trailer's tongue weight.

Tongue weight is the amount of weight that your trailer applies to the back of your tow vehicle. Typically, your tongue weight should be 10-15% of your total trailer weight (trailer + cargo). In other words, a 10,000-lb trailer would have a tongue weight between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs. For a trailer this size, you would need a jack with a lift capacity of at least 1,500 lbs.

It's okay to have a jack with a weight rating that is higher than your trailer's tongue weight. In fact, a jack with a higher lift capacity should operate more efficiently, allowing you to spend less time cranking and more time camping.

Trailer and Camper Jack Lift

Every jack offers a certain amount of lift or travel. Screw travel is the distance the jack extends when you crank it (or toggle it to "extend" on an electric model). Some jacks include a drop leg for extra adjustability. On these jacks, you'll see the maximum extension of the drop leg listed in the specs as well. Adding the screw travel and drop leg travel together will give you the total lift. The total lift listed above can help you determine how high this jack will be able to raise your trailer.

This JXC A-frame trailer jack features a manual hand crank, but can also be powered by any 18-volt to 24-volt compact drill when using the included attachment. Great for boat or cargo trailers. Comes with footplate.


I struggled with a decision to purchase an electric version which I originally had. Now I don't have worries of draining the battery, wiring shorts and relying on the battery to lift. Having drill assist with this model clinched the deal. I haven't used it camping yet but did a few test runs with my truck and it works great. I really like the various mounting holes for positioning the crank. I decided to put the crank directly in the front so I can access from either side of the hitch. Fit and finish seems excellent. I think I'll be happy with my decision.

I just commented to my wife on our last camping trip how happy I was to make the decision to purchase this style of hitch jack from Etrailer. Works so well using my cordless drill and also manually. Since I pack the cordless drill in our trailer for using it our stablizer pads I always have it. And it actually seems to raise and lower the hitch faster than a standard electric jack. It was a great choice.


It arrived today, just got done installing it.
Installed on my 26' Vintage Outlaw race car trailer.

This piece is beefy, feels really well made, made my original factory installed top crank, manual jack feel like a toy holding them one in each hand.

The new Trailer Valet Installed in seconds, took me longer to get the jack stands and tools.
I tried it with both the manual crank handle and the drill attachment.

The manual crank handle is pretty short, not much leverage, but still seems to require less effort than my super basic factory manual one. The internal gearing is pretty complimentary.
The drill attachment is very slick. Its a great idea.
Works really well using my 18v Milwaukee drill.

The design of this jack also has the top part (that faces up at the rain) a solid piece of metal, so water, ice, snow doesnt want to just run right down into the mechanicals all year long like a basic top crank jack does.
That flat solid piece of metal on top was a good idea.
The crank comes out parallel to the ground and unlike the basic models the factories install it has a grease fitting for servicing.
The slotted base plate allows you to rotate it to multiple orientations.
I currently have it facing straight forward. We will see how that works out.

The only offending thing about the whole thing is that it would have been so, so, SO easy for them to just make the tang for the drill attachment a standard size like 5/8 or 3/4 hex, or 16 - 17mm.
Instead they machined it to be some proprietary size that requires you to use their then proprietary socket attachment.
That almost offended me once I saw it in hand how simple it would have been for them to make it something "standard". Its still bordering on annoying me that they did not go with a standard hex size.
Other than that rant, it seems great. All jacks should be built this well.
I look forward to using it going forward and I'll post updates here as I get to use it more.

Still very good, I think I made the right choice, as I stated in my original review I wish they did not have the goofy proprietary drill adapter. Drills do not have much torque and it really loads even an 18V Milaukee drill down alot to raise the trailer up to connect to the ball. It would be much better if they had an adapter for something more hi torque like an impact gun or maybe it could just use more gear reduction internally. I also think the supplied hand crank could also be a little larger for more lever arm. My trailer is a 26 enclosed car trailer, fully populated with cabinets and spares, etc so maybe its a little larger than what they intended. I have not discounted that my trailer might be on the heavier side of the design intent. Its really only going up that requires a little work. Going down is easy and fast. Other than that its been a quality unit and I am pretty happy with my purchase.


I just installed the jack the original Bulldog jack is a year old but I need the space to mount a toolbox to be used for multiple tie-downs. I have a question: I purchase this Trailer Valet JXC Trailer Jack w/ Footplate and Drill Powered Option - A-Frame - Sidewind - 5K
It has a zerk fitting next to the gear box to grease the top of the jack how much grease and how often do you add grease ? Does it grease the top gears and rod and lift nut ?

The Pro Series Round 5,000 lbs. A-Frame Trailer Jack Topwind 15" Lift w/ 6" Steel Caster Wheel & 2" Zinc Footplate Stand has a steel wheel thats rated for 5,000lbs do you have a Steel Wheel for a Trailer Valet 5,000 rated jack ?

You had some good questions and so I reached out to Trailer Valet about greasing the gears. To grease the gears, the gearbox must be opened and grease applied directly. The rod and lift nut will be greased via the grease zerk. It is recommended to grease the jack every three months or so. As for the caster wheels, part # TV89FR will work with these Trailer Valet jacks.



I installed the new Trailer Valet JXC Trailer Jack w Footplate and Drill Powered Option - A-Frame - Sidewind - 5K and removed the 1-year-old bulldog jack. The new Sidewind jack gave me room to install a toolbox for tie-downs and straps that will be used to keep the side-by-side secure on the utility trailer. The sidewinder crank also helped with the location of the toolbox. Was able to move the box forward to access the emergency brake battery box in the original location from the trailer manufacturer. With the toolbox in place was able to add a solar panel to keep the emergency brake battery charged. See the pic as to all of the items that were added to the 22ft trailer.


I am very happy with this tongue jack. I took off my old one and installed this in about 10 minutes. It operates so smoothly and is so nice-looking and the handle very comfortable. It will be nice to use a drill on those 96 degree or 10 degree days when I don't feel like hand cranking. And the removable handle will make it easier to open my tailgate. Delivery was quick too.


Trailer Valet JXC Jack works well. We had to alter the A-frame on the 1967 Airstream to allow clearance for the mounting tube. Overall, jack works fine. We did not want to replace with electric jack as they go out and then it is a pain to lower trailer onto hitch. This may manual will always be ready to operate. Thanks for a satisfactory replacement.

Wendy W.


The jack is working fine thus far.


The jack works great. Quick with a healthy cordless drill with low and high range settings. I gained access to the top gears and made sure everything was well greased. The grease fitting helps too. Bottom line; best trailer jack I have used yet.


Great replacement for the aging trailer jack on my camper. Fit perfectly, easy to install. Works great with either my power drill or with the manual crank.



Still works great after a year. Great investment.


Use in my car trailer love it year later no rust on jack!! Use drill attachment more often than not and still jacks up and down as smooth as day one. Very impressed!


Does not work as advertised. Haven’t found a drill that can make this work. Using an impact damaged this jack beyond repair.

Etrailer Expert

Katrina D.


Uh oh, that is not good. I have looked into this a bit more and it seems that the reason the impact drill damaged it beyond repair is probably because the increased torque that the impact delivers could put too much tension on the jack and dramatically shortens the lifespan of the unit. Because of this, Trailer Valet recommends using a standard drill. I do believe that using an impact driver no longer makes it eligible for the lifetime warranty. Lets go ahead and get you the information to contact Trailer Valet anyway, just in case they can do something else for you. They do prefer to handle all of their own possible warranty cases.


Funny thing is I fixed the old one just before this one came in but decided to install it anyways. I am really glad I did....the drill option is totally awesome! The finish on this gives it such a quality feel and look...even the footplate is thicker and has a larger pin that my other one. I really considered electric but since I use a drill for my levelers, this just makes it cool and my drill makes fast work or lowering and raising. While it would be nice if the crank had a 3/4 drive on it, I think it would be difficult to lose the proprietary one that came with it. I put a few rounds of red electrical tape around it to make it easier to see if I drop it in the grass. I like how the crank itself removes so easily too. Really glad I chose this.



Over the past year, we have used the camper well over a dozen times and I have yet to use the crank. My 12 cordless dewalt 18V makes quicks work of lowering and raising. I like that with those off, you get some added security to go along with my ball lock. Would certainly buy this in the future should the need arise.


Really really love this landing gear! Easy to use and wow it looks good Improved the look of an older travel trailer.


Easy to raise and lower with cordless drill.
no handle I can fully open and close the tailgate with the trailer attached.
With no handle it make it more difficult for thieves.
I fully recommend this product.


The jack is great with one huge exception. The bushing holding the drive shaft wore out very quickly, so there is a lot of play in the shaft and I have to press the shaft forward/backwards with the drill to compensate and keep the shaft centered. This has to lead to wear/tear on the drill over time.


great quality product,all hardware to install and good price.


This is a minimalistic take on a powered tongue jack.

Benefits: (1) Cheaper than a self-contained unit. (2) No worries about tailgate clearance (and no worries about having to take apart the jack/turn it for clearance.) (3) No need to be hooked up to truck wiring to operate.

Concerns: (1) Not all of my battery-powered drills had the torque to drive the jack. No "cheap-out" drills need apply. (2) Along those lines, be aware that a firm grip and reasonably strong hands are required.

Bottom line: I would buy it again--but don't expect to need to :)


So far this has been a great jack. No issues at all. Being able to use my cordless drill is a great, much quicker than any electric. Just have to slow down when you get to the end or all the way up, it will jerk right out of your hands.


A year after installing and it's still clearly the best trailer jack I've ever owned and/or operated. I'll never buy anything else and several friends liked it so much, they replaced their jack with the same.


What a pleasant surprise and epic upgrade this trailer jack is. It took all of 15 minutes to remove the old janky jack and install this one. It fit the mounting holes on my R177 RPod perfectly and was no more difficult than old bolts off, position it in place, three new bolts on. Broke out my battery opp Ryobi drill, chucked up the supplied driver, and zipped it down, then up, then down then up. Even made my wife come out and take a look (she digs trailer upgrades almost as much as I do). Pretty sure she'll be all snuggly with me tonight for an upgrade well done. Will be posting a vidi review on YT. TY eTrailer!


Nice, heavy jack. I've tried converting other jacks to drill-drive but they did not hold up. I like the lower gear ratio for use with the drill but imagine it would take a great deal of (easy) cranking with the hand crank. Easy bolt-on installation using exiting holes on the old Airstream. One complaint; the drill adaptor should have the option of using a 3/4" socket since that is what most manual camper levelers use. The box of the adaptor claims it "Works with all 3/4" hex drive jacks" but not so. I'll be fabricating an adaptor. Overall, very pleased.

Better since I modified the drill attachment so I can use a 34 socket like the rest of the RV stabilizers.


Fantastic product! My trailer originally cam with an electric jack, but soon the sun baked and cracked the buttons. After watching a fellow YTer, I decided to buy this jack and boy am I glad I did. Almost a year of ownership and the quality and functionality are jut as good as the day I installed it. Thanks to the removable handle, it provides a level of security (from theft). All hardware is included to install. We are extremely happy with the jack and recommend it. We installed it on our 2018 LGMax 21ft travel trailer!


I purchased this trailer jack to replace the old nonfunctional Atwood jack on our 1988 Mallard Sprinter travel trailer. While the outer tube of the jack fit fine through the upper hole in the A-frame, I did have to enlarge the lower hole of the A-frame, from 2 1/4 inches to slightly more, using a curved file and drill-powered grinder, in order for the jack’s outer tube to pass through it so that the faceplate would lie flush with the frame. The included bolts with washers fit perfectly and secured the circular faceplate solidly to the trailer frame. I used a 20V Dewalt drill, with the included drill attachment, to easily raise and lower the tongue of the trailer as well as the handle which worked well, too. Overall, very happy with this jack and would highly recommend. However, I would advise measuring BOTH upper and lower holes of your A-frame since, as in my case, the lower hole was actually 2 1/4 inches (same exact size of the jack’s outer tube) requiring some slight enlargement of hole for proper fitment.


I thought it was pretty stout and robust when I put it on, but even after I made sure all of the bolts were tightened and torqued, it still left me wondering how long it'll last. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.


The Trailer Valet JXC is a high quality jack. Installation was SO easy and it cranks so smoothly. Best purchase we’ve made in a long time.


We got this to replace an electric jack that stopped working on our travel trailer. This is PERFECT! It took all of about ten minutes to install and only ten seconds to lower it with a cordless drill! This is SO much better and lighter than the "smart" jack we removed (last photo). The shipping was FAST and the price was GREAT! Thanks etrailer!


We love this jack! Having the ability to use a drill makes this jack go up and down so much faster then hand cranking and it’s also much faster then any electric jack we have seen while camping. This was one of the best upgrades we made to our camper!
