Scissor jack issues...take note.
Our 2011 Cruiselite 26BHXLT has given us a ton of pleasure this year and some issues that came up got quickly solved at the dealership under warranty.
One new issue we just had solved was the scissor jacks on three corners failed because of a design flaw and I'll explain for those who might want to be aware of it.
On our trailer, the jacks are a certain design(forget the name), but not all are the same so I understand. Ours have a small crimped screw set on the long thread and is meant to allow the jack to rotate up and down. Problem is when bringing the jack up to the final travel position, if you give it that "final" snug, the crimped screw lets go and all is good when rotating the downward. The big problem then comes when you try to rotate it back to the up position that the main bolt(you're turning it with the lug wrench) begins to rotate out of the jack while the jack will NOT go up.
Because the little crimped screw has let go, the jack will not go up and you are forced to remove the jack completely from the frame in order to move the trailer.
The shop fixed this issue by spot welding the crimped screw to the thread eliminating the problem.
I thought I post this here in hopes that other owners are aware of it and check all jacks on their trailers and look for the crimped screw and make sure everything is in working order.
Some of you might not have this issue as my bro-in-law tells me his has a cotterpin thru the screw/thread making it not an issue on his unit.
