Lippert Rear Stabalizer

Just finished winterizing and went to retract the rear stabalizer (Lippert). Nothing happens, no noise either. I hit the extend button and that works though. Did it for a quick second as a test only, since that is not the direction I need.

This is on my Flagstaff 28BH 5th wheel. Any suggestions to troubleshoot. Also, if I canít get it, is it ok to leave through winter or should they not be extended during the winter? I donít want to make it a more severe issue come spring.

Thanks for any advice provided!

Have you done any electrical testing at the switch?
Often times if the jacks go one direction and not another there could be switch/wiring connection issues.

Do you have a multimeter/test light and know how to use them?

Lippert Rear Stabalizer

No electrical testing whatsoever. It was actually raining pretty hard at the time, so I left it as is for now and will return in a few days to troubleshoot.

I have both testers and will add to my to do list.

I posted in hopes that I will get many pieces of advice. Armed with the right info, will make my troubleshooting more efficient.

Thanks

My Lippert rear stabilizer did the same thing, turned out to be disconnected wire on the back of the switch.

It turned out to be the switch. It wasnít disconnected but severely impinged by a poorly drilled hole. I shaved the opening, reset the switch and everything worked as expected.

Thank you!
