Rules for Raising and Lowering Your
Northern Lite Truck Camper


One of the benefits of owning a Northern Lite truck camper is the ability to quickly and easily load and unload your camper in just about any location. In order to help raise and lower your camper, every Northern Lite truck camper comes equipped with 4 electric HappiJacs. Even though HappiJacs make the loading and unloading of a camper a fairly easy process, care is needed to ensure that everything is done safely to avoid personal injury or damaging equipment.

When loading and unloading your camper, you are moving a dynamic load weighing over 2000 lbs. No one jack has the ability to support the shifting weight of the camper exclusively if a disproportionate load is shifted onto it, as such it’s critical to always keep the load evenly distributed throughout the process.

The following are HappiJac’s “Golden Rules” that everyone should know when loading or unloading your Northern Lite truck camper.



When loading and unloading your Northern Lite truck camper using the HappyJac lift system, following the Golden Rules listed above will keep you and your camper safe and sound allowing you and your family many years of happy adventures with your Northern Lite!
