Electric rear stabilizer jacks - stop immediately

My rear jacks worked on Friday and Saturday but stopped working on Sunday. I'm trying to lower my electric rear stabilizer jacks. They make noise like they're going to work, lurch and then stop. The switch is then dead for some period of time (I'm assuming a fuse is automatically resetting). The jacks aren't lowering at all.

I've verified that the t-bolts on my JT StrongArms knockoffs are not tight.

I have this manual that wmtire posted a long while ago:
http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/E...lizer_Jack.pdf

I'm going to go through the troubleshooting steps and see what I can see. I'm also thinking of disconnecting my JT's from the electric stabilizers to see if they're binding things up in some way.

I'm open to other ideas.

I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that we have that exact setup. The auto-reset breaker seems to be exactly what is happening. My question is "why"/"what's binding it"? (It's worked flawlessly since new in July 2012.)

I'll try them manually.

It might just be "jammed" little overtravel, too long on the push button......you'll see..and I would lubricate it again even if you have done in a few months ago.

I know in the service manual it says not to lubricate components, but I do and use a dry silicone lubricant as posted below.

Blaster 11 oz. Dry Lube Silicone Lubricant-16-SL at The Home Depot
