etrailer Camper Jack - Electric A-Frame Jack w/ Footplate - e69ZR Review


Ellen: Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com and we're taking a quick look at the etrailer Electric Jack. This is for your A-frame trailers and it gives you a great way to lift and lower that trailer, so you can make sure that you get hooked up and disconnected quickly and easily from your towing vehicle. The cool thing about this is that it does come with a remote key fob, so you can operate this from a distance. And it also is going to plug into your seven pole wiring on your towing vehicle, so you should always have power to be able to run this, but if you want to just step away from the Jack or don't have to worry about being right up on it the whole time you can hit the buttons here, get it to go up as high as you need it to go. You just have to press and hold on the button while you're using it.

As soon as you let go, it'll stop and then same thing for retracting.You can also turn the light on and off with the remote as well, so you can see that there, and turn it off. Of course, all these functions are also available up here on the panel itself, so if you want to use that, that's totally fine, but you do have the option of using that little key fob and I think that it's a pretty slick option, it just makes it a little bit more flexible. You can easily put this on your key chain, store it in your vehicle, whatever you want to do with it. But again, we've got our buttons here. So with these, whenever you press on the up or down, it'll just keep going.

So you don't have to stand there and hold the button the whole time. So again, if I run it up, you can step away. You don't have to hold onto it. I like that, so you're not just having to hold onto the thing the whole time.And then you just press the stop and same thing for the reverse. Now, if we look at our light again, I'll turn out the studio lights so you can get an idea of how bright that is.

So nothing that's going to illuminate the whole night. It's not really a working light, or a work light per se, it's just going to give you a little bit of illumination so you can see what's going on to get hooked up and disconnected in those early mornings or late nights when you're trying to tow. We'll turn that off. Now, as far as measurements with this, again, it does have that foot plate included, which has a diameter of about five and a half inches. The distance or the height of our Jack, whenever it's fully retracted all the way down, it's about 28 and a half inches, whenever it's fully extended.It's about 46 and a half, now that's just the travel of the Jack itself, that does not include the drop leg.

That gives us an additional seven and a half inches of distance, so we have a total of 25 and a half inches of lift, so that's something to keep in mind there. As far as whenever it's fully retracted, the distance from the ground to the mounting spot is about nine inches. From that same portion to the top, it's about 18 and three quarters, so just to give you some clearance measurements there. All in all, it should be a great Jack for you. It does come with a manual override wrench, so if something should ever happen where you need to run it up and down manually, you can just pop that on in there and then crank away.You got the cap to go over that to keep out any dirt, dust, debris or water, so you shouldn't have to worry about that. You can also usually put some grease in the top for regular maintenance just to make sure that everything stays nice and lubricated. But yeah, that's pretty much it. One last thing I do want to tell you is that it has a 3,500 pound weight capacity. So you want to make sure that you don't exceed that, but that's pretty much all we have to talk about today. I hope that this video has been helpful in deciding if this is the right Jack for you. We do have a lot of options available here at etrailer.com. Along with all kinds of accessories and parts for your trailers and towing setups in general, so be sure to check them out. Thanks for watching.
