What model & year is your trailer? They are not all the same.

Are they electric jacks?

That's not a jack ... it's a stabilizer. Stops the trailer from rocking, side to side. Your Jack is on the tongue... keeps the trailer level, fore and aft. You can buy stabilizers at any camping store but they may have to be welded to the frame.

I suspect it's made by Lippert. It would be funny if you weren't in quick need, but here is a Lippert manual. It lists ALL the parts, EXCEPT the leg you need. You might try calling Lippert.

Camping world will be the closest to you. You might want to try WestWind Mobile Rv repair. He might be able to help you.

You might want to add your year, make and model of trailer, in your profile.
That way members can see what it is, without you having to post it every time.

These electric stabilizers are hella expensive. You canít buy parts and have to replace them entirely. A member here has unmounted them and rebuilt/reinforced the legs to be better than new. You could probably find pictures and take it to a local fabricator. In the meantime, a pair of manual scissor jacks are a quick and inexpensive stopgap fix.

X2 what ependydad said. Look into repairing this one, or just remove it and use scissor jacks until replacing it. This won't impair your moving the trailer, only stabilizing it when you park.

The Big downside is the "QUICK" part! Most/ALL of these Elect.Stabs have "Universal Plates" where they attach to the frame,regardless if "Front or Rear"! The Salvage Yard near Goshen,IN has several,but a LONG way to meet your Quick request! Youroo!!
