I tried to lift the rear tires of my TV while attempting to disconnect my 5r at a precarious angel last year. The front landing gear locked up and I have to get the manual crank out and un-stucked it.
For the last several connects and disconnects I have had an increasing chunking noise. Last week I had a strange wiggle to the 5r while sitting in my favorite chair that was just not right. After investigating I saw the left front clevis pin at the landing pad vibrating while the DW was cleaning inside. Not good.
I watch several videos on jacking gear replacement that included replacement of the bevel gears. So last week I hooked up and disassembled the landing gear and did the inspection. I found several pieces and missing teeth on the horizontal bevel gear but the screw jack looked good. The local RV dealer sent (A Lippert gear set) via UPS.
All parts in the package look the same but when I tried to slide the bevel gear on the jack shaft it was to small.
This in the Navy is called a dry run.
After taking pictures, cleaning and reassembling I called the parts department. They didn't understand why but sent an Atwood set FEDEX.
This Atwood set has several parts that are foreign to what is installed and the bevel gears are to small also.
Called the parts department again and although very prompt and courteous their not sure why.
Guys, got any ideas?
