Salem hemisphere lite rear stabilizer problem
I have a hemisphere lite 5th wheel. It is a 2013 and has been used twice since we purchased it. I came home today and found the entire rear stabilizer assembly destroyed and the rear of the trailer shifted about 10" from its original location. It appears that the switch that powers the motor that drives the rear stabilizer malfunctioned. This caused the stabilizer to run up all of the way at which point the right side stabilizer ran out too far and ripped itself out of the worm gear assembly. The switch appears not to be rated for outdoor use as it is totally corroded and now in two pieces. My question is has anyone else experienced the switch activating the drive motor due to what appears to be a short in the switch? This switch is located at the rear of the trailer and is exposed to the road grime and whatever water hits it. It is not sealed at all.
