Mine was the same. You may have rust inside the electrical motor. I took mine apart and cleaned the rust off the rotor. Been working as normal since then.

Good Luck.

I had the same issue from water damage- tapping it would get it barely moving, took it apart, cleaned rust off, re-lubed it, it's worked since. 5 gallon bucket now protects it from further damage.

Do you drive down the road with the 5 gallon bucket on? I can see if you are parked but what if it is raining while towing?

A little water won't hurt it. It's when it sits outside uncovered for months on end. I just tie a plastic grocery sack over it. It's not completely water tight, but it does the job. I wouldn't worry about running down the road.

Found a motor and gears on eBay for $53. That is a lot better than $238 for a new jack.

Well my new motor and gear box will be here Saturday. Took the old one apart. Was not water in it. Just thinking maybe it went bad. There was water in the very top of it. But not the motor. But anyway this one will be covered up. $66! Shipping and all. A lot better than $238 for a new jack lol.

Barker

Been researching tongue jacks the last two replies settled it I'm ordering a Barker Monday. Looks like I can order direct. I'll make sure I get a cover. Is the cover tight enough to drive with it on?

I keep meaning to cover mine - thanks for the reminder!

Recently Dawn upgraded her kitchen canisters. I brought the old ones down to the workshop - turns out the largest one makes an ideal jack cover.
