Recommended Power Jack for Use With Lippert Jack-It Bike Rack


Which A-Frame power jack is suitable for this bike rack, is it a Lippert model A-Frame jack? But which model, Im not sure. Thank you.


Expert Reply:

The Lippert Jack-It bike rack, part # LC429756 fits most jacks as long as they have an outer tube up to 2-1/4 inches in diameter and 22-1/2 inches of clearance above the trailer frame.

The # LC285318 would be a good choice for a trailer jack. With its 3550 lb capacity, the jack will have plenty of power for even the heaviest trailers. Using a jack that's higher in capacity than what you actually need is a good idea for several reasons. The extra reserve power will come in handy if you're using a weight distribution system and the jack is used to raise the rear of the vehicle to take the tension off the spring bars. The high capacity also means that jack won't need to work so hard, which will lead to less wear and tear on the jack.
