It's 1400lbs, here's the rest of the warnings from the install manual.


Read entire instruction manual before using this product. Failure to
do so can result in serious injury or death.

• Never exceed max 1,400 lb. tongue weight rating.

• Do not use to support trailer parked on grade greater than 3% (1.72°).

• Chock tires on both sides while supporting trailer with jack foot.

• Do not support trailer with jack foot placed on un-level ground or
debris. Jack foot base plate must be in complete contact with ground.

• Support tongue weight with jack foot in vertical position only when
attachment bolt is resting at bottom of guide slot.

• Replace worn or faded safety label immediately.

• Install only on a 2-1/4” jack with a 2” outside dimension inner jack
tube.

My tongue is about 1100 when towing. By the time I put our clothes up front and add our weight to the bed we would prob be closer than I would have felt safe. But I only wanted so I didn't have to crank so much. The electric jack fixed that well!!!

I just got one of the red cones. Seems like it has 1200 lbs capacity. I like this because it's plastic, not wood. Wet dirty wood does not go in my camper if I can help it. Same reason I never used wood for leveling, even with the popup. I've used the same set of Lynx levelers for 9 seasons now. None have cracked.

I do recommend the Fastway ZIP Breakaway Cable:
4' ZIP Breakaway Cable (Universal Replacement) [80-01-2140] - $12.49 : Fastway Trailer Products Store

No more straight cable getting tangled in the chains. It self-coils and clips to the breakaway switch when not in use.

Electric jack would be awesome, mostly to eliminate the up/down exercise when installing the WDH bars. Just not enough financial priority (yet).

My BIL just put one on their Spree this weekend. Pretty neat but I'll stick with my pads I made out of 2x8's as I have to throw the stablizer blocks out of the truck box anyway for DW to put under the stabilizers so I see no gain other than the larger hole in my wallet. But he likes gizmos so more power to him. Also with my homemade pads they can be any thickness I need as I have 3 different ones depending on where we are parked.

Bummer.

I bought one of these last week in Jacksonville. I went to put it on yesterday and it doesn't fit. My powerjack leg is about 3/8th of an inch to large I'm bummed, I was really looking forward to using this flip jack. Now I have to go back and fight the RV dealer to keep them from charging me a 20% restocking fee.

I also bought the breakaway cable and it works great.

Well, I got to thinking about this when I got home and decided to look at this again. When I went into the RV dealer and saw these on sale I got to looking at them and asked the counter guy if it would fit and he said the 2 1/4" should fit my TT. So I bought that and the breakaway cable. Out of habit, and since I live over 2 hours away from the dealer, when I went out to the truck I decided to check the contents of the box and sure enough it was missing some parts. So I went back in and the counter guy gave me a new box. With my tunnel vision now of making sure there were no missing parts in the new box I didn't notice he gave me a 2" version So good news is I will exchange it for the larger version, bad news is I have to drive over 2 hours to get it Live and learn!
