rear stabilizer jacks don't work at times

Hi - I am having a problem with my rear stabilizer jacks. At times they do not work either extending or retracting. The switch does not work either way. If I manually move the jacks a bit they will work again with the electric motor. However if I take my finger off the switch they will sometimes work and sometimes not. I am planning to sell the 5th wheel so would like to get this fixed before I put it on the market.

Thanks for the help

Rear stabilizer jacks

I had the same problem with my rear jacks, it was the switch. Rockwood replaced it. No more problems.

Without doing some electrical tests with a multimeter, we are simply guessing.

When the jacks do not work, is there voltage at the switch or at the motor?
