Failing front jack on windjammer 3001

We had a front electric jack just quit working, so I used the manual wrench provided and within four or five turns the whole thing colapsed, very unerving, any one else experience this,,,

Yes our (LCI) white,space alien looking,jack stopped working on the second week of our 2 month fall trip. No F/R dealerships near so we purchased a (Barker) jack and carried the (LCI) untill we returned home to go thru the warrenty process for replacement . When you hook & unhook every day while traveling it is no fun to crank up a trailer to set the (W/D) bars. Even if you have a class A (M/H) with toad there is hook & unhook involved when traveling. As a bonus I can lower the tailgate of the truck with the (Barker). I had to turn the (LCI) head to the side for tailgate use. Youroo!!

My black LCI died this summer after 3 or 4 months of camping. My dealer said the gears were chewed up. We replaced under warranty with a Barker VIP.
