I folded over the lower jack tube on my Atwood power jack while moving my travel trailer around with my skid loader tonight. Are these lower tubes replaceable or do I just buy a whole new jack? The model number on the front is Atwood Heavy Duty 86065, but not much comes up in searches for parts.

For the couple hundred it will take to replace it I would go with new and improved.

I did the same thing with ours. I don't think it was an Atwood though. I was able to find the parts, but by the time I figured up the parts cost and shipping, I was within about $50 of just replacing the whole thing and not having to fool with the complete disassembly it would have taken to effect the repair.

I would just replace it. Cost is likely to be close, so might as well get a new one.
