RE: Electric jacks manual crank

^I’m pretty sure disconnecting the wires won’t make a bit of difference. Or am I missing something. It does make a huge difference, Grit Dog ... personal experience. It sounds like it's turning the jack motors - some kind of friction thru the wires maybe, I don't really know. I do know it is much less taxing on the drill when the wires are disconnected. I just pulled the plug out of the camper for each jack and the spin rate on 18v Mikita drill greatly increased. 2008 Lance 845 ... Well yeah, the motor is acting as a generator and you're trying to power something when they're connected. does that mean I ruined the jacks by leaving them plugged in during extension and retraction??

Electric jacks manual crank

My 20 year old Atwood electric jacks finally died, I have tried numerous replacement of parts to try to get them to work again, but no good. I’m using a drill and an attachment to crank up It takes about an hour real PIA my question is, is there any kind of switch on the jack that has to be activated in order to crank down jacks manually, if so, I hope I did not damage anything. If anybody can help, please reply thanks.

LP Gas Detector

Anybody know if there is a way to test these, I pulled out my refrigerator for a repair and the LP detector kept going off ,it might have been residual gas since I disconnected gas hose from back of fridge ( telling me it works) or a low battery causing it . I just want to be sure Thanks
