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.

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.



by:

Very high quality jack. I had put an A-frame tool box on the tongue of my trailer. And the jack set back from normal location from ball hitch so I could drop tailgate without hitting the jack. So I was limited on how tall jack could be so it wouldn’t be in the way of tool box latch. Fit perfect, love the removable crank handle and socket to use with power drill. I will need to remove grease fitting and put a right angle grease fitting in. But that’s not a problem.



by:

I put this on a 1992 basscat trailer. Even with all the slots, it still wouldn't line up with the existing holes so I had to drill two new ones. It also doesn't come with nuts, not that the bolts are long enough for that anyway. Intended to be screwed into threaded holes on the trailer? I just used the bolts from the old jack. Also had to file the center hole to get the clearance for this jack. So installation was a bit tricky, but otherwise it looks great and feels stout



by:

First off I have to give props to etrailer. They have never let me down and they are my go to. Have ordered many things and not one mess up and the trailer jack is great to. On my set up it took my 16 yr old about 10 minutes to switch out. Brand new trailer so we were working with rusty bolts. I have been using my cordless drill to lift and lower my trailers for years. I normally would just modify the existing jack to work with drill but for the price what the heck. Nice looking has nice size foot. Like the chuck and handle. The only thing that I would change and this has nothing to do with etrailer but the jack itself. I would make where the handle/chuck attaches (nipple) be recessed into the top portion of the unit. This would add a little bit of security (along with coupler lock) to the jack so if the handle is not attached it would not be as easy to put a pipe wrench or jam a socket onto the nipple and lower the tongue on to a receiver. That's just a mod I would make to the jack if I was the manufacturer. Great jack though.


Comments
Jack is working working great as it did from day 1. 6 months out of the year that jack is raised and lowered 6 days a week. No complaints yet and dont foresee any either. To follow up on my previous review I havent figured out a way to secure the jack nipple but I have increased the security of the trailer by putting the jack in its lowest position once the coupler lock is installed. Too heavy to pick tongue up by hand and would be cumbersome at best to raise jack leg with a hand tool of some sort and then have to get coupler lock off. Im pretty sure they would move on to and easier target...

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.


Comments
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.

I just received 2 units and installed. They are great so far. Much easier to unhitch cargo trailers than with the factory 2,000 pound jacks.



by:

Just got this jack. So far it is excellent. Fast, strong and easy to install. I put it on my boat trailer and will follow up with another review in 2 or 3 months to see if it holds up. Right now i give it 5 stars.


Comments
Excellent. Still works great. Highly reccomend.

Love this new tongue jack. Excellent construction with nice heavy duty finishes that should last well without rusting. Was super easy to install and I love the extra security of not having the handle on the jack when the trailer is parked. My drill is not quite powerful enough to lift the tongue at full 5000lb tongue weight but more then does the job to lower the trailer and retract the jack which is very convenient.

Only issue I had with this install was the 3 mounting bolts were a bit too short! They were about 1/2 the length of the old jacks bolts and really only extend into the nuts by about 3-4 threads. This is a bit short in my book so I'll be replacing those with some longer ones.

Other then that it's a great jack at not a bad price.



by:

We use a 1/2 drill to raise & lower the tongue on a 10K landscape trailer fully loaded. Works like a champ. Keep the jack greased & you'll never have any problems.


Comments
It’s been a few years & this model has been a success. Make sure you grease it. If you don’t you’ll figure it out pretty fast.! Regressing worked fine.

excellent jack well worth the price, extremely easy to use, much faster then an electric jack

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.

It broke after the third time I used it

Can you please elaborate on how it had broken and what was wrong with it?

I was just cranking the Jack down and it snapped

I was suspicious of this product at first since I worried that the 18v Ryobi I use to activate this was not going to be enough. After a year it still works, although I will say that raising it requires bursts from the drill instead of constant power to prevent overheating. It is a 1K tongue weight though, so I can accept that. I really like the product, it makes hitching, unhitching, and leveling the travel trailer much easier. The fact that it requires a specific size socket to work is a benefit, because with no handle it is a good theft deterrent on top of everything else. The fact that it has a manual option makes me prefer this over the electric jacks, and I don't have to worry about wiring or a motor exposed to the elements. I recommend it.



by:

Was thinking of getting an electric hitch for my 8.5x18 for a while. We do production work and easily transport 7k pounds of gear for events. This thing is awesome! Install was a breeze especially with the drill attachment. I think I am going to find a socket that does what the one it comes with does to attach to my impact. Also love this thing comes with a grease fitting.



by:

this thing combined with a big drill is a huge time and energy saver. I can unhitch a fully loaded trailer with ease and in seconds.



by:

This jack appears to be a perfect replacement for the one that failed. The mounting plate has holes that allow for multiple mounting hole patterns and the drill attachment works flawlessly! So far I’m very pleased with it! I’m using it on my 20’ car hauler trailer and it only took about 15 minutes to change it out!



by:

I was very happy with the purchase of this jack. I have had zero issues with it. It is much easier to crank than the old one it replaced. I don't use the power adapter that came with it much, other than to show the option to people. It works well enough by hand that I don't bother.



by:

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.



by:

It works as advertised. I tow with a Jeep Cherokee. The reason I bought the jack was in hopes that it wouldn't interfere with the Jeep's lift gate. No such luck so I'm looking for a way to either raise the jack off the trailer tongue by a few inches or to turn it sideways.


Comments
To gain better access to your liftgate area of your Jeep Cherokee, I recommend using a ball-mount with a longer shank. I have attached a link to the longer ones we have available. You will also need to keep in mind the rise of these ball-mounts, as you dont want to go outside the 3 inch safe zone.

I'm Happy with the service you provided and the quick response in which you shipped my product. I have it installed and it works perfect."But" a suggestion, A diagram with the size of the mounting flange and location of the location of the mounting holes from the center would have helped me. I did have to make some modification to my trailer as all the mounting holes did no match my trailer.
Other than that I love it.
Thanks



by:

Solid jack. Operator sticks out when handle is removed which interferes with lowering the large tailgate on my truck. Tailgate is little tall because it’s an avalanche. This requires included proprietary adapter to use drill so don’t lose that.



by:

I need to say that I believe the Trailer Valet JX is going to be a good investment unfortunately the package arrived in terrible condition and the hand crank, power drill attachment and mounting hardware weren't in the box, hence my low rating.
I notified customer service and they are sending out a whole new jack and return label for the one I received so when it arrives and I can actually use it I will update.


Comments
I apologize for the missing items. Your new product has been shipped.

superior speed and ease, though so far only tested on empty 18' cargo box that weighs 3k empty (10kgvwr) with almost 6' tongue. works way better, smoother and faster than I'd thought, slick!. current model has round base plate with multiple holes that fit standard a frame (no longer just a 3 hole triangle) so you can "clock" the handle any which way. sidewind handle beats top crank any day. I added a standard 5-hole drop leg. on and off the pintle in seconds with ease. and peace of mind (read on...)

an added safety feature of a side crank clocked left/right is your cranking forces line up "down the road" instead of doing the Watussi. that, and you can stand farther back from the danger zone and see much quicker if things start to go sideways. i had a few close calls in my younger, dumber impatient days. this absolutely reduces the "pucker factor".



by:

The Trailer jack was delivered without the screws, handle and drill socket. After communications back and forth, I received the items yesterday, Thank you



by:

Perfect!! love the drill attachment makes lowering and raising easy
