I am the person who commented that I had a seized up motor. The seals on the motor ruptured and the motor filled with water from driving in the rain. It was not repairable so I took it off completely and pulled the wires back up into the shell so that if I wanted to install a motor later I could. I am not sure what lippert meant by "detente" but using the crank works great and I actually get a more stable trailer using the hand crank than I did with the motor (when it worked.. not long)

I think the next trailer I get is going to have manual jacks. I'll add a couple of center ones as well.

Much much simpler and faster.

Over the years I have have had motor and shear pin issues. Plus they are expensive.

If the motor is Not locked up you can use the Socket on the other end of the assy! It will now be (Direct Drive) and turn very (Easy and Fast) in regards to Jack movement! I let a Alligator take my Motor and Gearbox off! Youroo!!

Was Lippert Saying (Detent)? Unless they are saying that the (Motor/Gearbox Assy) is a Detent thru the Gear Reduction? Youroo!

And Herk and I profited from your mishap. I thank you every time I deploy my axle jacks. Thanks Gary!

Y'stone Bill, my experience was the same as yours. Crank wouldn't turn. Took motor off and cranked worked easily. I think the "detente" is the resistance in the motor that holds the jacks up. I wired mine in the retracted position to be sure. Oddly enough, when I removed the wiring for the rear jack the front quit working but I could easily crank it down.
