not familiar with the retaining clip. usually the pin is an interference fit. I would go to FR with a vin to get the jack make. looks like atwood HD but the clip thing baffles me. both jacks were stressed when the attempted lift of the tow vehicle was made. just because the nut will freetravel on the shaft doesnt mean it will do the same during a lift while loaded.

If it won't free travel without a load, it will sure be put under extra load on the mechanism (powder metal gears) with a load on it and binding/burred threads!

what I was saying...even if the nut free travels unloaded, under load, deformities may still exist that cause the worm/nut to deform again to previous or worse state. triangular files may not fix this...

The chances of deformities being present if the nut travels free are a lot less possible than if you do nothing as you suggest. I said a knife file or a fine tooth bastard file, no mention of a triangle file.

Ok gentleman, you have both made your points. Please go back to being civil. Do not take every opportunity to express your disagreement, incite argument, insult each other, or fan flames. Voice your opinion respectfully and then let it go. I have done a clean up on this thread. The mods are going to watch this, please don't make us have to clean it up again. Thanks.

One of my favorite saying is "I know a guy that knows a guy", usually either smarter then me or able to assist. So, were headed to the Quad City area, Illinois, area (Hampton/Illiniwek Forest preserve) this week. Possible manufactures are now Bull Dog or Pacific Rim. Outside chance are Holland and Ultra Fab (will need more research here). Venture/Stromberg Carlson and Atwood are out for now. Two sets of Venture/Stromberg Carlson (no good), Atwood's repair manual shows only one replacement kit for all four types of their landing gear. If doable I will just replace the gears by themselves. All spacers, bushings, pins, and shaft appear to be in good shape. I'll try not to do the vertical press to the TV rear axel again. Stay thirsty my friends.

Job completed. Of course after talking to a guy that's knows a guy I didn't find new gears (of course). Lippert supply department emailed me back finally (complete leg required). I now believe that a once used subcontractor that supplied to Lippert for a short time is no longer available. Any hoot, I ordered a complete lead leg from my favorite RV dealer (you know that Cheyenne Camping Center in Iowa) ships without payment?), can't say there are many around anymore. The replacement was really easy (2 of 5 stars) and it sounds great. One difference is the Transmission collet spacer is retained differently. A screw is used instead nut & bolt. I think it will do ok. At least I don't have to listen to the clunk, clunk, clunk every operation (3 teeth together missing now). The last picture shows the manual operation shaft doesn't seam to align with hole? Hope I won't have to use it. "Stay Thirsty My Friends"

silly question...did you try rotating the gear reduction box 90 degrees to get alignment?? Im glad you went new but I know its a hassle. At least you got a better chance of closure with this problem and hopefully a rest before the next one
