Electric Jack for Rockwood 2604

Does anyone know the brand name for the "electric Jack" that is installed on the Rockwood 2604 trailer? The Jack I am referring to has two switches, one switch is for the light, and the other switch is to be used when you "retract" or "extend" the Jack.

Also does anyone where to buy a "cover" for this jack?

Thanks,

It sounds like you are talking about the power jack on the front of the camper, is this correct?, if so I cover mine but I don't think you have to. As far as a brand, dealers put different manufactures on. At this point in time I do not know what brand I have, but the top is white, my camper is at the dealers and I am waiting to hear what the problem is with the slide out, if it wasn't for that I would go out side and check.

Most are Lippert. Do yourself a favor - have your dealer put a different jack on there. The Ultra Fab isn't much better - It's noisey and in my experience has a lot of design flaws such as no warning when it gets to the top/bottom of the stroke (it just blows the fuse). I like the new Husky Brute personally, or the Barker. The Lippert jack has some parts on it that are NOT AVAILABLE to replace. On the shroud, for example. The top is available, but the bottom part is NOT AVAILABLE, EVEN TO DEALERS!!! The service support on the LCI jacks from the factory, however, is pretty good.

That is the one, I haven't used mine enough to know if it is a good jack or not, but sure would have liked to have known about all the problems with the jack as well as the Concertone Stereo DVD system before I bought the trailer. Somehow my RV dealer forgot to mention these problems and customer complaints. Oh well, as unlucky as I am "If I had a duck, it would drown".....

Thanks for your help, the advise in this forum is sure helpful.

Had the lippert power jack on our 2605 Rockwood...worked great other than blowing a fuse once. Regardless of the manufacturuer, you need to measure/mark the jack so you know that you're approaching it's extended or retracted limit otherwise you'll blow the 30A fuse (mounted internally on this unit), break the shear pin or damage the gears.

The unit is waterproof and shouldn't need covering. If you feel the need, a plastic bag and cable tie does the trick (hey, were campers!).

I have run the Lippert on my 2604 to full extension with no damage. It was a heart stopping moment when it started a loud clicking when it reached full extension. I may have been lucky with no damage or blown fuse. I now have the shaft marked and am more careful.

Our brand new 8315BSS which we just brought home yesterday, has a Lippert tongue jack and I almost immediately discovered that at full retraction it has an auto-stop feature. Never the less, I am going to mark the tube with a black marker so that I know when I am nearing full retract.
