1996 Carri-Lite Cashay 28RK Landing jack failure

8200 lbs, landing jack driven side died.
not sure on replacement but the Ultra-Fab is a bit of overkill
obviously probably need to replace both for proper gear ratios

i replaced the ones on my Cruiser, I ordered them from etrailer.com for around 325 dollars and they paid freight. I believe they are rated at 8200 lbs...Jack up and block the trailer using concrete blocks, takes about 2-3 hrs. Not a hard just, but a pain getting in and out of the front storage unit...

When I replaced mine on my previous 5th wheel, I too ordered them from E-Trailer.
Easy to work with on getting the correct length, capacity etc.

Landing gear measurements

I ended up ordering a set of the Ultra-Fab electric landing gear. I donít think the tabs are going to fit quite right, so some welding is in my future. Ultra-Fab states 19.125in.

Does anyone know what the direct replacement is? Removing it was a bear. That 1996 28ft has a small door and that driven jack with motor is HEAVY for this 69yr old.

Your original post said one jack died, so I am assuming that each Jack has its own motor? I am trying to help a recent widow get her 5er up and running for the year and her system is one motor with a connecting rod between the two legs. In her system, in addition to the gears you show in your photos, the top of each leg has two gears, the main gear is literally on top of the jack screw, turning the jackscrew up or down. The other gear is a tear drop type gear that pushes down onto the other, turning both. This other gear is attached (driven) by one of the gears you show in your photos. My issue now is that the system will not Extend if there is normal tongue weight pushing down. If I use a floor jack and release the pressure on the front weight, then the jacks work fine. I'm thinking this system is 18 years old and maybe just worn out? BTW, the trailer has two 12 volt batteries, one is brand new and the other is fully charged. Thinking I may need to go with the two motors and replace the single system, but would love to hear any suggestions. Thanks
