Ultra-Fab Introduces All-New Electric Tongue Jacks

Elkhart, Indiana-based Ultra-Fab Products, Inc. announces the introduction of Zerk technology (patent pending) that dramatically increases the life of the jack by five times over competitive products.

“As the industry evolves and travel trailers become larger and heavier with slideouts now the norm on most, RVers need a reliable, long-lasting tongue jack that will withstand the rigors of the camping lifestyle, and with Ultra-Fab’s new innovative tongue jacks with Zerk technology making it the strongest and most reliable tongue jack consumers can buy,” said Ultra-Fab president Craig Searer, in a news release.

“We’ve conducted side-by-side cycle bench testing between our tongue jacks and all of our major competitors products, and our jacks continually perform long after the competitors products failed.”

“Now, with the addition of the Zerk feature where the RVers can lubricate the threaded rod that raises and lowers the trailer, the test results show that Ultra-Fab’s tongue jacks last a minimum of five times longer than any competitors’ products,” added Searer.

Zerk technology is essentially a valve that opens under pressure to allow lubricant to pass through a channel and be forced into the voids of the threaded rod.

Grease fittings are permanently installed by a threaded connection, leaving a nipple connection that a grease gun attaches to. The pressure supplied by the grease gun forces a small captive bearing ball in the fitting to move back against the force of its retaining spring.

When the pressure ceases, the ball returns to its closed position. The ball excludes dirt and functions as a check valve to prevent grease escaping back out of the fitting.

The new Zerk technology is available on the following Ultra-Fab tongue jacks:

  • Ultra 4000 Electric Tongue Jack (Mfg. Number: 38-944014)
  • Ultra 4002 Electric Tongue Jack (Mfg. Number: 38-944016)
  • Ultra 3502 Electric Tongue Jack (Mfg. Number: 38-944017)
  • Ultra 3502-7 Electric Tongue Jack with 7-Way Plug (Mfg. Number: 38-944037)

  • Super strong jacks featuring 3,500 to 4,000 pounds of lifting power
  • 2.25-inch outer tube (38-944014)
  • 2-inch outer tube (38-944016, 38-944017, and 38-944037)
  • 18 inches of travel; travels 10 inches in 40 to 50 seconds
  • Water resistant motor and gear housing

Ultra-Fab Introduces Eliminator for Rock Solid Stability

“Rock’n Roll” is great when taking a nostalgic journey back in time to the teen years, but it’s probably not what most people dreamed about when they decided to purchase their travel trailer or fifth-wheel.

“It’s unsettling to be sitting in your RV at the campground after a long day of traveling or sightseeing to feel that swaying feeling every time your spouse or children move around inside the RV,” said Chad Vannauker, Ultra-Fab Products national sales manager.

“But don’t despair, Ultra-Fab Products has a solution for you.”

The Eliminator , as the name suggests, eliminates that rocking and swaying motion and gives any RV rock-solid stability by eliminating front-to-back and side-to-side motion, he explained in a news release.

The Eliminator is the perfect complement to manual stabilizer jacks, helping eliminate front-to-back and side-to-side motion and comes with all mounting hardware for use on travel trailers and fifth wheels.

The Eliminator is boxed in packages of six and can be set up in minutes once it is permanently installed by bolting them on.

They attach to the RV frame and jack for maximum stability.

Ultra-Fab Offers Slide-out Supports

The idiom, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is as true today as it was when Ben Franklin first wrote it more than 200 years ago.

It simply means that it is better to try to avoid problems in the first place, rather than trying to fix them once they arise—and that’s especially true when it comes to RV slide outs.

Ultra-Fab’s Ultra Slide-Out Supports not only keeps slide outs level and stable, they also prevent damage to the RV’s extension tubes.

Ultra Slide-Out Supports come with a one-year manufacturer’s warranty and are available in three models to ensure the right fit for your RV.

Two supports come in each box. Two different models are available:

  • The QS 2647 (p/n 19-960003) is the largest support, extending from 26 inches to 47 inches.
  • The QS 2137 (p/n 19-960002) extends from 21 inches to 37 inches.
  • The QS 1628 (p/n 19-960001) is the smallest support, extending from 16 inches to 28 inches.
Ultra-Fab Products slide-out supports

“Unlike other slide-out supports, these feature quick release adjusting buttons, to eliminate twisting,” said Chad Vannauker, Ultra-Fab spokesman.

“And unlike competitive products, the Ultra-Slide-Out Supports adjusts and installs in seconds. Just pull, adjust and lock in place to the length that you need.”

Ultra-Fab’s Ultra Slide-Out Supports features heavy-duty steel construction ensuring durability and performance and helps save wear and tear on slide outs by reducing sag.

And it is sag that puts the slide-out mechanism and chassis frame under stress that will eventually send RV owners to the repair shop resulting in a costly repair bill, according to Vannauker.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
