Front stabilizer leg motor

We had a problem with one of our front stabilizers. First we began to notice that the leg did not look straight. It had a buckle in it. We were told it was our fault and not a warranty issue. We sucked it up although we have no idea how we could bend it. They sent a new part but would not pay for the install. We had it fixed. Three weeks later the right front stabilizer (same as before) will not go up. Luckily it was pretty high up and we could move the extension up and drive it home. At home when lowering the stabilizers both went all the way down. Thought the problem fixed itself....wrong! Now it will not go up at all and is stuck too far down to move the camper.

Has anyone seen or had this problem??

If the other side still raised and lowers, it sounds like a shear bike on the linkage shaft may have snapped. Something is binding. On my Sabre, the landing gear is not straight either. I haven't taken the time to try and fix it yet, but have read about others with similar situations.
