Power Jacks

I have the electric jacks on the front and back of my 2014 Wildwood X-lite. Anyone have issues with the sheer pins actually sheeting more than once? I have gone through 4 sets of sheer pins...I follow directions as per the Lippert Manual. What the heck???

I know there piece is missing in the photo, I'm talking about the little pins that go through the threaded portion...

If it were me, I would drill the threaded rod and coupler out to 1/4" and install a 1/4" gr 8 bolt. Making sure the coupler was on the threaded portion and the holes aligned.

My problem has been with the pin falling out. installing a bolt with a nylon lock nut would be my next go if this continues.

Prick punch the pin or slightly peen the middle of the pin with a hammer to elongate it.
