LG Power Jack Model 1817941

Ok so I was getting ready to go camping over the weekend and it was the first trip of the season, the power jack blew the 30a fuse so I tried to manually lower it and the nut under the rubber cap broke in half when I used an impact driver on it. (never do that again) I sprayed with WD40 and put in a new fuse and it worked fine but now I have no manual over-ride if needed. Seems the rust froze up the unit in the first place.

So my question is where can I get replacement parts for this unit? The nut does not screw on the shaft it has a flat spot where an Allen nut screws up to the shaft. I've looked on Google and can not find that part at all. I've found replacement switches and a replacement top cover but no NUT.

Any help is appreciated.

Amazing this is - - I just got off the phone with Hecht Trailers in NJ and they don't sell this brand of jack but they could sell me a brand new jack because they don't have a nut. I guess LG made one nut for each jack.

Problem solved: Lippert who makes this jack doesn't have a replacement nut and evidently had a clutch problem with this model - so they are sending my dealer a brand new jack and my dealer is then going to send it to me at no cost. It's a nice feeling when something good like this happens. If anyone else has this model it would benefit you to contact your dealer.
