Loose electric/gear motor on leveling jacks

I just noticed on our trip this last weekend while putting down my front jacks the motor was wobbling on one of them! I went around to all 6 jack motors and 3 of them seemed very loose. I also noticed when leaving and the jack was in the up position, it wasn't as loose, but still had play in it. Is this normal ? Or do they need to be tightened ? It's hard to see how they are attached to the jack to tighten them, any help would be appreciated! It's a Wildcat Maxx 313RE. Thank you!

On my Rockwood the motor 'floats'.....must be for an alignment problem....hasn't given any problem.

Thanks Bob, I was thinking it may be something like that, just wasn't sure! They have probably been like that all along and I just now noticed.

Also, the shaft on the front landing gear is a 2 piece affair, 1 inside the other, and sometimes it rattles when using.... might have to smash the outer tube a little, but not enough to keep it from sliding back and forth. Mine, for some unknown reason , sheared one of the 1/4" bolt that pass thru that tubing and the motor shaft.....carry a spare or two now.
