The motor fits on loosly. No need for a solid fit. The loose mounting lets any misalignment problems move around. My rig has a motor on each leg for leveling.

I guess I don't have landing gear on my 5th wheel. I would like to see a picture of a set of landing gear on a 5th wheel that cranks down. I have front and back jacks that come down when I get it level side to side. Is the landing gear the tripod that holds the king pin?

If I'm not totally in the dark (which I am from time to time), the landing gear is the two legs (jacks) in front on your fifth wheel that you use to raise the trailer from your truck hitch and for front-to back leveling. The king pin tripod is for stabilization purposes only, as are the rear jacks.

Yes the legs that comes down to support the camper when you pull away with your truck. I need to find an adapter that will fit that crank for the 2 front legs so I can hook it to my impact or figure out how to mount a motor in.

Travis, can you get a picture of your driver's side landing leg? Preferably from the inside view so I can see the cross tube?

The gear box and motor would be added to the inboard of the driver's side leg, where the gearbox is now. Those kind of look like Atwood legs, but I'm not 100% sure.
