Facing the manual end, turn the crank clockwise. It is pretty hard to turn as the motor has a gearbox and you are going against the gearbox.

Clockwise- ok, opposite to what I thought. But it was tough either way. I'll try again after dinner.

If you have a Lippert jack you have a place to put in a hand crank opposite side of the motor. Give it a crank both ways to see if it breaks loose. Something could of bent and jammed up. You might need to get rough to loosen it.

Pop the motor off first.

It will make troubleshooting the screw a lot easier.

Agreed. Remove the motor, lube the worm gears with WD-40 and work the legs down.....carefully. I would use a pry bar and give them a gentle shove. I had mine hang up due to extending and weighting the legs on a slope. That small twist locked one of them up. Doug, they have to come down....or off...else you'll be having a very wobbly camping trip come July.

When you get the motor off, you are going to have to have someone pry the legs down while you manually try to lower them. You evidently jammed them in the up position the last time you retracted them.

I'm annoyingly slow, but I was able to disengage the motor. The jacks were still stuck and required some forcing to break loose whatever was.

Now to look under there and see what/how to lube this thing and see if I can find anything that is bent or mishaped.

It took some force but they popped out and then the crank turned easily.
