Electric stableizer jacks

:zombieH: While on our first trip with our new 29 rlds eagle we had a bad experience with our front stableiser jacks. While stopped at a rest stop we heard the moter running on our front jack set. It had started on its own going up thank God and sheared the drive key in the shaft. What if had started down instead and hit the pavement. This could have been a real problem.:zombieH::zombieH:

That could have been really bad. Personally I like manual items, as I know who is in control.

Wow, never heard of that happening. Did anyone ever figure out why it happened?

Probably a bad electrical switch.
I don't know if there would have been a catastrophe or not going down the road and the jacks starts lowering. Electric stab jacks are not that fast and probably they would have hit the pavement and bent backwards toward the trailer frame. You certainly would hear it when they hit though.
I remember one time out West we stopped for lunch at a rest stop and slide the dining room out. After lunch we jumped in the truck and started for the entrance ramp. I look out my side mirrors and ( you guessed it) I forgot to retract the slide. I sure would have been a sight going down the Interstate!!!
Happy trails,
