Landing Gear Help

I have a 2004 Wildcat 5th wheel and upon lowering the camper to level it after unhitching the non motor side landing leg popped and pretty much stopped supporting the camper on that side. Now it's about 2" higher than the motor side leg. It won't push up or pull out but it does move up and down with the other one. It has a little up and down play when you push it up and down. Is this repairable or is a replacement in order. The other thing is the landing gear is painfully slow. When you hit the button to go either way the motor doesn't even start turning right away. It takes off but really slow and you can actually help it out by gripping the tube that connects the 2 legs together and help turn it. I saw a youtube video with what looked like the same setup and his motor had a lot more authority. It looks like a new leg is about $220 and the whole works with a motor can be had for $425. I just don't want to send more than necessary.
