It looks like the mystery crank may have been added to my trailer accidentally. I've searched the motor pretty thoroughly for a port for the crank and/or a port on an extension rod coming from the motor and I can't find either. Just the 3/4" adapter the tech told me about during the walkthrough. I even removed the 3/4" adapter to see if the slot for the crank was behind it and it wasn't.

That said, I should give the ratchet a try to see what I'm in for.

Thanks again for all the replys.

Paul

I have a '09 235 and don't have the one crank. I believe you have power stabilizer jacks? The u shape is what i have for the manual jacks, does the other fit your electric jacks in case of a power failure. The slide is manually operated by the adapter that you found already.

Happy camping,

I have one like the lower one and it is for lowering my spare tire down from under the frame of the trailer.

My electric tongue jack crank is much shorter but looks very similar to the mystery gold crank.

The top crank is the same one I used to lower or raise my stab jacks when not using the drill.

I'd assumed it was a backup for my power awning but the manuals don't mention it.

I've included a picture of the 2 cranks. If anyone can find a use for the long gold one I'd be eternally grateful.

Thanks
On mine, the top one lowers the spare, the bottom one works the rear stabilizer.
