At first I was going to say shouldn't be an issue but in reality blocking it up, or having the truck under it is way smarter. If everything is external to the actual jack it shouldn't matter but it's hard to qb it from my lazy boy. One advantage to having it blocked up is you can test it and make sure there is no binding going on running the jack up and down.

I replaced the Atwood gearbox with a metal one - Stromberg Carlson LG-179015 Fifth Wheel Landing Gear Box, Aluminum. The only issue with replacing is trying to lay sideways in the front compartment. The landing gear top gears looked great and properly lubed.

The unit seems to go up and down smoother now.

Etrailer has the parts to convert the front landing gear to a two motor system.

I would not be doing any work on a jack that was in use. Back the truck under it for safety.

Camped this weekend and tried out the new gear box. It moves a little slower because I assume it's the heavy duty model. But it was steady and sure and I think a little quieter.

has anyone had a problem with the switch sticking in the retract position or the switch returning by itself to the retract position? my 2011 36reqs has done it twice now. second time it sheared the nub on the gearbox retract side and also the cross shaft screw on the opposite leg. got it working again with an interim repair on the gear box and a quick connect on the power wire to the motor just incase the switch acts up again. thinking about the Lippert 276602 or Stromberg Carlson LG-179015 gear box, both are aluminum, any preference? looks like their all made by the same manufacture.
