I have a 2007 Damon Outlaw with the Lippert jack system. Have been very happy with the Damon unit, but just got back from the repair shop with a bill for over $ 800. I couldn't figure it out either, although I did download the Lippert trouble shooting manual. Seems the fuse which blew WAS for the motor. That's because the motor was not sealed enough and allowed moisture to get into the works and short out. Motor lists for $ 580 but dealer got it for me for $ 550. Jacks had only been used 6 times. I will try to get Lippert and Damon together to see if either or both will step up to the plate. If they won't, of course, the next time I am negotiating a purchase and the unit has Lippert jacks, I will ask if there is a discount if I take the unit with them!

Hi folks!

I'm new to the forum but thought I would add my two cents. You know what that's worth

Our Lippert Jacks wouldn't retract this weekend. The tech tracked the fault to an 80 amp breaker in a power supply module located in the front access port (on the nose of the coach) on the driver's side. It is the opposite side from the pump. We pushed it back in and have had no trouble since.

The Lippert documentation leaves a lot to be desired.
regards
Tim

Tim,
When I bought my rig I was told that the current draw was very high and to leave the engine running. I haven'y had a problem since I started doing that. I also carry a box that has a 1/2 inch reversible variable speed drill and the proper bit so that I will never be caught in that situation again.

Good advice KCI. In the few times I have used the jacks since my incident, I have kep the motor going as well. Thanks for the tip!
