Bent stabilizer leg

Hello. I badly bent the stabilizer leg on my 5th wheel. I think I can get someone to straighten it if I can get it off. Do you know of any instructions or videos on how I can do this? It's a PSx1, model LCI 337199.

Better off replacing it. Even if you get it bent back it will always be weak.

Thanks for the reply.
1. How do I find a part number for the replacement part? I've googled everything I can imagine and can't find it.
2. How do I get the old one off? A link to written instructions or a video would be great - can't find that either. That's why I'm here.

The assembly is listed here:

...however "not all parts are available for individual sale". The parts component list does not show a part number for just the leg.

As Greywater said above, you can't buy just the arm from the factory, but you may be able to get it a an RV salvage yard.

You also may be able to get the bent one fixed by straightening it and having some stiffeners added to it. It'll be easier to pull the whole assembly and fix it while assembled than to try to take an arm off.

If you do want to remove that arm, you have to disconnect the lead screw in the middle and remove the holding plate at the end. You may even have to remove the motor if the bent arm is on that side. The trick then is to 'sync' both sides when you put it back together.

Here's a link to the service manual for them. Lippert Electric Rear Stabilizer Jack Service Manual

I think an experienced welder / fabricator could repair that. It might be an option to consider.
