Power stabilizers

Last couple times I have been out to the trailer, I have hooked up the battery and could hear a "clunking" from the rear of trailer. Upon inspecting, I noticed the motor for rear stabilizer clicking and clunking but the actual arms would not move. Seems to be an electrical issue of some sorts. Anyone else ever experience this?

I noticed mine making a similar noise when they bottom out being pulled up. Motor flexes on the rubber mounts as the stabilizers clunk up against the frame. That's normal....doing it constantly when you connect power to it isn't. I would say it's a short in the stabilizer switch.

Had a similar experience; the switch was sticking and had to be replaced.

You change it out yourself or have dealer do it? Those switches appear to be really touchy...

Ours are easy to access/change; did it ourselves. There are two screws, and wires simply plug in.

I had the same problem, I took some contact cleaner (NAPA) spayed the switch all around and it ended my problem. It use to get stuck. Didn't even have to unscrew it.
