Power Caster PC3

For those of you using one (Power Caster PC3) -- how do you fasten it to your trailer?[LIST]
  • Did you drill the frame and attach an adapter
  • did you have the adapter welded to your frame?
  • Do you attach the PC3 to your Jack
  • do you use some sort of ball attachment

lastly do you like your Power caster PC3

My trailer is a 2017 Flying cloud 27FB - and is about 7,000 lbs loaded

I use a power caster with a propride hich and not the ball. I had to make my own adapter to immobilize the hitch. After that it works great. Have used it on a number or trailers. The box trailers I just used the jack without a foot.

Hope this helps.

Power Caster or other Dolly

Was aiming for similar dolly setup for our 25ft dual axel 5300/6300 Intl CCD. Chance found PRE owned 4 in-line tire electric "Power Mover" brand courtesy local Craigslist.

Available through dolly dealers but Fashioned a custom stout welded down tube bracket per our local hitch shop to attach just behind LP cover. Allows for proper clearance of dolly motor L+R swinging under battery box. Mount using long u bolts to avoid welding or piercing the frame. Also gives easy adjustment (never had to) or removal.

Wonderful combination. On Flat paved driveway performs effortless 2 point 180 with no backlash, springback tension as warned by some. Be sure to get proper rated dolly version for your tongue and GVW for proper control and stability. Good luck with your brand choice as there are a few out there.

Forgot to add, single wheel row dolly manufacturers recommend @ 2ft setback from ball hitch to mount the down tube bracket.

They say Increased traction, stability and keeps mount out of the way.

Originally thought the ball would be the way but then you'd create a 750lb + unicycle. 🚑 !
