GREAT INFO!!! Thanks a lot, Mike. I'll go out there tomorrow and set the limit switches, if it has them. Forest river never sent any of that info you found when they shipped my unit! Thanks again, Randy

You could always mark you limit area with RED paint or magic marker so you or spouse will know when to stop.
I have a Barker power jack and love it. Any time the trailer isn't going down the road I have bucket turned over the jack head with the chain hooks hanging from the bucket handle to keep the wind from blowing it off. Sure beat a jack head full of water.

This works well for me on my Ultra jack. Not real sure it would fit on a Lippert which seems to have a slightly larger head. Check their site for a comparable product.

Good news...Called Forest River and they are shipping a new power front jack to the local Flagstaff dealer that will replace the seized jack. When I took the jack off the tounge, I found it was loaded with water which was why it seized in the first place! Good to know that people at Forest River stand by their products.

Be sure to cover the jack motor when not in use.

UPDATE !!!! Forest River sent a new power jack to a dealer near us when we were camping. 3 days later, the dealer called me on my cell phone and asked if I would like to have them install it (at no charge) or pick it up so I could do the install. I opted to do a pick up and install it myself. Upon arrival, I noticed this new jack was a little different and seemed to be better sealed against the weather. Jack works like a charm...if this one goes bad, I will go back to a barker jack...never had a problem with them on my 2 previous TTs Attached is a picture of the new Lippert jack.

I know this is an old thread, but I was looking for some information about the Lippert power tongue jack. My unit was transported to Forest River for warranty work, and in the process the tongue jack was damaged. They replaced it with an LCI unit that looks exactly like the one in the picture above. My first impression is that it is much louder and slower than the one that was damaged. I am looking for reviews on the long term performance of the LCI unit. At present I am thinking I want the same brand as my old one (the brand name escapes me), but if the LCI is a good unit I may decide to keep it. Any response is appreciated.

Mine looks exactly like that one, and it just quit working after about six months. A bought it new from a third party who couldn't use it, so warranty is probably out of the question. Anyway, I'm taking it to the shop tomorrow to let them look at it. Because the hole for the manual crank is on the top, it is very difficult to raise the tongue and rear end of the truck high enough to get the equalizer bars on and off. Trying to turn that crank when it's at eye level becomes very awkward. FYI, the Stromberg-Carlson website says they manufacture this unit, though they show it with the LCI logo on it, just like the one shown in another post here.

That's the one I have, and so far--no issues. By the way, is that a flag holder attached to the LP gas tank cover? Nice idea!

Thy flag holder is indeed attached to the bottle covers with a few screws. I have also had problems with the second jack that was sent to replace the original jack. It was another lippert jack that was a different style but still the same old problems! It was so slow that it took about 5 minutes to fully extend.I think part of the problem is that these lippert jacks are rated for 25,000 lbs but seem to struggle with my 831FKBSS which is very tounge heavy due to the front kitchen. I finally called forest river on 6/6/10 and told them of these power jack issues and was told to send it back and they would send another to replace it. I didn't want another lippert headace and went out and purchaed a Barker jack and sent the lippert jack back to forest river and they are sending me $140 as that is the cost of these cheap power jacks. As of yet, I haven't received the money but a call to forest river on August 27th revealed that Josh Tackett is no longer in charge of the Ultra lites and has gone to the pop-up division. I have been told that a check for the $140 will be in the mail by next week...we shall see as we all have heard that "the check is in the mail"
