Unhappy It's late, I'm tired

Just got back from a nice weekend trip, but I need to know, please: how do you remove the landing gear foot off a LCI leveling system jack? Do you just remove the large ( about 15/16") bolt from the bottom center of the foot? Thanks guys I'll explain later.

That's how mine are removed.

I put one down on an uneven surface and made it look like a taco. I just removed it, beat it back close to flat and reinstalled. Seems to be OK. I did locate replacements for about $40, if I remember correctly.

Their website (Search by List) has pretty good info regarding their various leveling systems.

Waiting for the explanation.

Take care,
Stu

Yes, thanks Stu for the response, I got up this a.m. and got the foot removed with a 15/16" socket. What happened is I came off my dumb plastic leveling pads too fast when retracting the jacks and the frt passenger one got bent about 10 degrees to the curbside. It fully retracted, so I thought I would be fine for the 190 mile trip home yesterday from the White Mtns.

However, when exiting the camp to the main road with a sharp right turn a horrible sound came from under the chassis. The foot was now in the way of the tire when I turned hard right

So I continued on, figuring as long as I avoided hard rights, I would be ok. I planned my route into Phx so to eliminate the dreaded turn, the only one being the one onto my residential street. Unfortunately I had to fuel up during the trip and that was not fun with every station super busy with the holiday crowds, and me not wanting to turn right.

So we made it back safe and sound, and now I need to see about getting that Lippert bracket replaced or repaired. Has anybody had to have this done? Thx for reading.

I joined that club last year! Really irritating at the end of a great trip to discover that error!

Mine pads don't come off that easy so I lowered my landing gear to the ground and placed a bottle jack between the frame and landing gear and pumped the jack until the pad was flat again.

I now use 2 X 12 blocks under the landing gear.
