Rear stabilizer jacks for 2007 Excel

One of the rear stabilizer jacks on our 2007 Excel Classic will not extend. Activate the switch and I hear a racketing sounds like stripped gears. The motor appears to be fine. I assume it's an issue in the jack's gear head.

I think this is Barker product, anyone knows?

Does anyone have experience trouble shooting these jacks?

Thanks,
Fred

Tom,

Thanks once again. I had already found that thread you linked, but it is about an electrical issue. I was hoping for some experience with servicing the drive train system (gear box). I am waiting on a return call from Barker Mfg. But frequently there's nothing like hearing from an end user about solving a problem.

Fred, you missed this part of the post.
"P.S. If the outrigger motor has total power failure or ever fails completely, you can always remove the the power head by loosening the 1/8" allen (2) screws and one 9/16 bolt. Once the head is removed, turn the shaft with a big screwdriver or the like clockwise to lower jack or couterclockwise to raise. Just FYI. Takes about 2 minutes to do"

If the motor runs and the clutch rachets, and the jack mechanism doesn't move, you can do the above and I suggest lubing the worm gear while you are working on it. Also suggest not retracting the mechanism until it bottoms out or rachets. Just bring it up to where it's retracted and not "wedged" to prevent it from happening again. HTHs.

Tom,

Thanks, I got to it today. Pulled the gear head, inspection of the gears and a test spin on the bench showed it to be good. At first having trouble getting the screw drive to turn. Finally used a 12" pry bar to turn the screw and it popped and started turning. All is back together and working great. Now I understand one more piece of hardware on the rig.

You mentioned lubing the screw drive. Not totally clear where to add grease? Is that what the other two larger Allen head screws are for? Do you know where to get a copy of the owner's/service manual for those outriggers?

Fred,
Glad you got it. IIRC, I think I just sprayed with some silicone due to limited access to the worm gear. Remember not to retract the gear all the way, to prevent it from happening again. Bet I had mine apart a half dozen time before I got it. I did have it down to about a 4 minute job!!! That was a long time ago. My last 2 Excels had the hydraulics on it. They have issues all on there own! Ha. Not aware of where or if they had a manual on the outriggers. Maybe someone can chime in.

Rear stabilizer jacks for 2007 Excel

Here's a copy of the Barker Outrigger Manual. More of an installation manual, there is not a lot of troubleshooting information. Barker still sells replacement jacks if needed.

Thanks for the link. I try to maintain as complete set of manuals as possible. You're right about it being short on trouble shooting, but the parts list is always good.
