Jacks for Lifting and Lowering 5th Wheel RV Camper


I have a 2014 KZ Durango 336RE 5th wheel with Reico-Titan electric Jacks and a Lippert control panel. The leveling system is frequently inoperative. Would a set 4 of these scissor jacks be a suitable alternative? My primary concern is that they allow lifting and lowering the front end enough to connect and disconnect the 5th wheel hitch for towing.

The Lippert Scissor Stabilizer Jacks # LC285326 are only stabilizer jacks that should not be used to try and lift or lower your 2014 K-Z Durango 336RE.

For lifting the front for connecting and disconnecting the camper there are a couple options to help you with that. The jacks will have a manual override on the top of the jack. You will remove the access cap and use a ratchet to move the jacks. You can also disconnect the wiring on the jack and operate it remotely by powering the jack directly to a battery. To reverse directions you will simply reverse the 12v+ and 12v-.

You can also use a Powerbuilt Unijack Bottle Jack with Built-In Jack Stand # ALL620471. Each of these jacks will have a 6,000lb capacity and 11"-21" height range.
