Unhappy I bent my left rear jack

I parked my 378 in my driveway in the same place as I did since I owned the coach. This time when I went to leave I pressed my retract button and my jacks down light eventualy went out as has happened right along but this time the left rear jack was still down which quickley was bent as it hit a high spot on my driveway. I guess I won't leave untill I get out and look. I guess the only fix is going to be a new jack $$$$

Sorry to hear about your bent leg.
I sometime skip the visual myself. No more.
Here is a link to your replacement leg. I think they are all 8,000 lbs.

Iggy, thanks for the info. I'm going to order the new jack and have it put on at the truck repair place near me. A $700 mistake.

The Lippert site instructs you to measure the jack cylinder, they look the same just about 1.5 inches longer on one. Our coach has the 12,000 lbs jacks but they aslo have 7 and 8 available.

I don't think you need to buy a new one. I bent the two rear pedestal pads up on my 2006 Georgetown (34ft) when I lower them on a concrete parking bumper. They were bent about 45 degrees on one side, the other side was still flat. The hydraulic piston was fine. When I got home I got my air impact wrench and unscrewed the pads. There is one large bolt underneath that holds the pedestal on. Either take it to a machine shop or pound it out at home using a sledge hammer. I did the latter and it went back flat....re-attached it using anti-seize compound. Without an air wrench it would have been hard to get off.
A machine shop would probably charge one hours time.
