How To Replace Powered Jack

I have a 1992, 25 foot Airstream (Weighs 6000-7000 lbs.)and the powered jack may be getting to the end of its life. Please provide some information on replacing the jack:
- Types of jacks, capacity etc.
- Do all jacks have the same three bolt pattern?
- How do you install them?
- Does camper make matter?
- Suggestion on where to purchase powered jack

Thanks for your help, LCP

Certainly don't know a lot about jacks, but I will tell you that most all have the same bolt pattern, especially if you stay with the same weight rating. To remove, first jack up the front of the trailer, let it down on blocks or a jackstand, remove the three bolts at the top holding the jack in place, disconnect the power wire, and remove the jack. Installation is of course, the reverse. Don't be shocked at the price of a new one, as they are rather pricey. A friend of mine did recently replace his jack with one that he got for a good price at Harbour Freight, but I don't know the price, or the quality of the jack.

Do you know what is wrong with your jack? Suppose it's repairable?

you can also try ebay. they have a lot to chose from.

i recently bought a new barker hp3000 at a good price.

it was super easy to install - really easier than removing the old jack.

note: make sure that there is full metal-to-metal contact between the new stand, the 3 bolts and the AS frame. this will ensure that the electrical system will run properly/ground properly.

also, you might have to buy some toothed washers. these are also recommended for a good contact between the jack and the frame.

good luck
