The crank attaches on the opposite end from the motor. Don't have my TT here and only did it once so I don't remember the detail but there is a place there to attach the crank.

You might want to look at that again. The crank for the tongue jack is unique. It's a socket welded to the end of the crank. The crank for the stabilizers is typically dual purpose - manually actuate the stabilizers (with power disconnected) or manually crank the slide motor.

Don't do it this way! Motor and Gearbox were broken off by a (Alligator)! Simply go to other side of unit and use the (Supplied?) Socket Crank! Youroo!!

Down here in Louisiana, we have plenty of both kinds of gators. I am taking it, that yours was of the rubber variety and black.

Hey! I learned something today. Too cute. Interesting little tidbit re NHTSA data on tire failures. Who knew?

Help me understand this. If the switch is not being pressed while the jacks are being manually turned, is there really a need to disconnect the power? Isn't the switch effectively disconnecting the power anyway?

My rear jacks won't go down and I don't have the proper socket to manually extend them either. Heading out to get a VOM to troubleshoot.

Those jacks are still being used after a few minor adjustments. Thanks Herk and Gary.

Provided the switch is functional, it should effectively cut power to the jack. The caution assumes that you're cranking the jacks by hand because something is wrong with the motor/s or electrical. In that case, and without knowing what's wrong, you'd want to remove power. Too easy to pull the fuse at the converter - should be 20-amp.

Good point. No idea which fuse it is though.

Off to probe...
