Middle ones will not retract by themselves to my knowledge

Not sure if it would help but hit retract and rear and see if you can get it to work. May have to run them out and then back in to get the right position.

I assume it is one of your middle Rams that you lost a part on? Let's assume it is on the left side. Go to you level up panel and push the up or down arrow until 'manual' is on the screen. Then press 'enter'. You are now in the manual mode. Now push the left button. The left Rams will start to extend and get them to where you need. To get them to retract, push the 'retract' button and then push the 'left' button and they will begin to retract. If you want them to go down again, press the 'retract' button again. Whenever the retract LED is lit the Rams will retract, otherwise they will extend.

Not sure if this help but it is how you manually control your Rams. You can't control the middle or rear Rams but you can control one side at a time...

so the short answer is No.

there are basically 3 systems on the 6 point. This is what i have seen on mine which is hydraulic

Front Landing gear - front 2 jacks
Street side - 2 jacks in-front and behind axles
Curb side - 2 jacks in-front and behind axles

so to work on any of the rear jacks you would have to retract them. I would hook up your truck while doing the work just encase you loose pressure on the whole system

I want to thank everyone for the reply. I will be hooking up the truck to the fifth wheel today and replacing the leg that I lost on the Highway. Once again thanks for everything

Yes, you can. It was the day I picked it up on the way home. I lost one of legs and when I got under the trailer. I could see that the pin that held the legs in was sheared off and that what happened

Are they electric or hydraulic jacks? Must be electric as I don't think there are pins holding the ram in place on hydraulic. My earlier post about using manual mode was for a LCI hydraulic system. I not sure how the electric system operates...
