Does anyone know where the manual crank for the leveling jacks would be located just trying to find it before I really need it?

Those are NOT leveling jacks.
They are stabilizing jacks ONLY.

Do not use them for leveling.
You need to level side to side, by blocks or wedges under the wheels. Then front to back with the tongue jack.

Not there either. My dealer hasn't been able to help. I don't think was ever put in or it was taken out and never put back in.

I got lucky and noticed it was missing on mine as well during the walk around. Dealer tracked one down and put it in. Maybe there is issue from the factory?

Mine was missing well. Had to have the dealer ship one to me since I bought 160 miles from home.

I genuinely think that the "manual" crank for the stabilizers is to take out the faulty motor and do it by hand via a socket.

I havenít done it ďmanually,Ē in part because I donít have a crank, but it does reason that it would come with one, in case something happens and the motor(s) fail.
