Update on the jacks. They were working then and they worked when I got to the campground this weekend. Got home and went to jack up to rinse out my tanks and all they do is click ?????

try running another battery cable as a ground from that pump to the frame. there is a threaded opening on the side of the alum pump body for that. its where the valves are normally grounded. the only real ground the pump has are the two bolts that hold it to the mounting bracket. its sufficient in almost all cases. there is a service bulletin on the hwh website about bad grounds on some systems. it may apply in your situation. it sounds like the same problem you had to start with. which refreshing the ground temporarily cured.

Pulled the motor out and hooked up to power all it wanted to do was humm. I ended up ordering a new tank, pump, motor assembly from "A Campers Paradise" $563.00. The motor by itself was $328.00 and the relay was another $100 or so. My thinking was if I did that, the pump would go out next so just get everything new.

Had a similar situation, on a friend's unit, sorry I didn't think of this sooner.
Corrosion, on the brush plate, the rivet that grounds the brushes to the motor end plate caused high resistance and stopped the motor. Replaced the rivet, got the resistance to zero, and the motor worked fine . This may not be your problem but you could check it out and maybe carry the motor for a spare if it's repairable.
