Stablizing Jacks Switch doesn't work

I have a 2016 Salem and the electric switches for the stablizing jacks don't work. Is there a way to manually extend and retract them? My remote still works, but I would like to know I can operate them without power.

Yes, on the opposite end from the motor. I would pull the switch and check and make sure you have 12v to the switch. Switches do go bad and connections come loose.

Both of mine quit within a month of each other on my Heritage Glen 299RE. Called Lippert and they mailed me a new one, free of charge. Dealer replaced second one, also free. New design on new ones.

If your remote still works the stabs, it sounds like a switch problem.
As OC said, pull the switch and check for voltage.

Dealer replaced both of mine. They said all the original switches caused problems. I've had new switches for a year with no problems.

Sabilizer Jacks

Our rear one went out twice, dealer fixed and found the connector from switch to the motor had come loose. We used the handle that came with to lower and raise on our 3 week trip. I had read that could back feed the board and cause trouble but it didn't.

Powerless Stabilizer Jacks

My 2014 Wildwood came with a crank for the jacks, and another for the slide. On one occasion, I had to use the stabilizer crank. For some reason the switch didn't work. But the crank worked just fine.

My 2015 Wildwood also has a handle for manually winding jacks and slideouts, been used a few times too, when batteries die. The DPDT switch used on the front jacks and rear stabilisers can be replaced easily with a unit you can get at a Radio Shack type store (or online). A lot cheaper than paying a techo to do the work, and you learn a little more about that big expensive maintenance nightmare (but fun home-from-home) thing you bought.
