We hooked up this past Sunday at the campground we had been camped at for a week. Everything worked fine. We had a six and a half hour drive home trough several rain storms. When I tried to used the jack it would not work. I used the crank to unhook.
I checked the jack with a meter and had power into the jack and through the switch.
On Monday I called the dealer and they told me to either bring the camper to them and they would take care of it or take the jack off and bring it to them. I took it off and did the fifty mile drive on Tuesday. Without any problems they gave me a Husky 4500. The old one was a 3500.
Since I have the diamond package I will have to paint the new one black.
Has anyone else had problems with their tongue jack?
I had a problem with my jack as well. What i found was that water would enter pass the level bubble on the jack. The water would then get into the gear assembly and then get into the motor. I found this out when my jack wasn't working when i was setting up for a weeks stay in Lancaster PA. I ended up taking it all apart including the motor and cleaned it. I reassembled and was back up and working. Since then i keep a cover on it and haven't had a problem since. Just a bad design over all i think. I would invest in a jack cover to protect the new one.
I started putting a 5 gallon bucket over my jack with the chains holding it down. Not sure who posted this idea first, but its alot cheaper than buying a jack cover
A bead of silicone around the bubble level works also...and there's no bucket to mess with. The only time you ever need to open it is for greasing the jack once or twice a year and all you have to do is twist and pull. Peels right off. I just started doing that on mine.
