Power Gear Jacks

My son on his Fleetwood has "Power Gear" electric jacks and one jack has broken the shear pin and it appears to have siezed the screw in the jack. Does anyone know where just the jack frame is available ( the motor is fine ) or have any ideas on how to remove the broken shear pin to see of the jack screw will still function ?

Thanks for any input

PS delete the above message as a small amount of heat and large vice grips got it unstuck now he needs to drill out the sheared pin out and replace

I have Atwood jacks which look very similar to the Power Gear. Because the pins are very hard, you probably won't have much luck drilling the pin out. They are very hard and don't drill. Use a punch and clear the pin. I couldn't find an appropriate roll pin or solid pin, so I used a proper size drill shaft (the smooth part) and cut it off with a Dremel cut off wheel. Been working fine ever since.
