From the pile of dirt in your picture, like some of us, you forgot to raise the jack.

I have seen that and always wonder-- could I take the shaft out of a manual tongue jack and replace the irreparable one. Or if you just have replace now,can you stick a manual one on then take this apart at home. I would swear the 3500 Atwood I put on our old trailer had a parts list and order form. I bet a dealer's shop has manual jacks laying in a scrap pile from upgrading. Are you in SoCal? I have the factory manual jack laying in my garage.

Where you at??? I have the manual one in a garage in Ontario, CA. If you need help and aren't too far away, I'm game to help

Could you have installed a manual jack temporarily until you got home and either order parts or get the one from Amazon?

From what I've seen, the manual and electric jack screw mechanisms are the same. Just an acme threaded rod and the nut either welded or staked to the inner tube.

His 1st post says he's in Rancho Santa Margarita. That's about an hour due south of you (as the crow flies, anyway).

Thought that would be where he is based. Out using the trailer and broke somewhere was how I read it. But he is not answering so I am betting Mike Thompson took him for the big buck already and he has his hands full installing it. Boom Pricey, but problem solved.

TOM48 thank you for the offer, we are out camping and I won't ask you to drive. But you and others are correct, had I thought about it, could have gotten the manual first then fix it at home. Instead in a panic, paid the big bucks. It went in smooth and quick. To answer how it happened, I did remember to raise it, just not all the way thinking it would clear as I repositioned the trailer from as less than perfect first back in attempt (slide hit hook up pedestal). What a learning curve.

Electric trailer tongue jack repair or replace?

Keep your old one, that inner tube can be replaced.
