Water-logged tongue jack
Rain water got past the access cover (hole) on the top of the jack, filled the gear box with water which drained out through the motor.
I e-mailed Laurie McCullough at RVWholsalers who then called Forest River. My new jack arrived yesterday and I installed it today. The new jack has an "O" ring on the access cover, but I'm getting a jack cover to protect it further.
So far on my new Rockwood I have replaced a stove igniter (broken shaft), stabilizer motor (water damage) and now a tongue jack (also water damage). I still need to find out why the front slide window won't catch fully open. RVWholesalers has been quick to resolve all these issues and I have no complaints with their service.
