Well I figured out my problem. UGHHH
As some of you are probably familiar with. There is a hole in the fender to fit the crank that came with the trailer to lower the spare. Which is of course what I was doing.
But! Forest River in their infinite wisdom
Did not use that system! WHAT!!!!!!!! You say?? The hole is there. The rod that the crank plugs into is there. But they do not do anything! Why you ask?
There is an entirely separate spare tire system under the trailer made by NORCO. That system uses the same crank as my Leveling jacks. And is accessible by crawling under the trailer. Which you have to do anyway to pull the tire out.
I wanted to call and ask Customer Service.........but
Have fun all.
