2015 hemisphere back stabilizer won't extend

Front ones came down fine. Went to extend back one and it sounds like it wants to come down but there is no movement. Tried to manually bring down but little nobs broke off. Any idea why back stabilizer won't extend. All the fuses are fine.
Thanks

Which model do you have?

How long has it been since they were operated?

It sounds like something is rusted and/or binding in either the stabilizer framing or the lead screw.

Which 'nobs' broke off?

I had my electric stabilizers bind a few times until I could lube them a couple of times. Unfortunately, my fix was to manually deploy them with the crank- but it sounds like you tried that and broke the little nubbins off. I'm not sure what else to try. You need to somehow deploy them an inch or two and then the motor can take over.

The 'nobs' were a roll or shear pin through the lead screw. You can punch it out and replace it.

I kinda agree with GS, tap it in a few places with a hammer may loosen it up enough to operate. I'd crawl under it and see if I could see anything binding and maybe spray some lube on it while I was there.

I know my rears have been stuck a few times. Insert a small bar between foot pad and frame. I good snap and I have been back in business each time. Good luck.
