Smile Powergrear Jack Repair

On the way to South Texas from South Carolina this past December I suffered damage (pitting from stones) on my front jacks when they did not fully retract the morning we departed Tallahassee. Didn't realize the problem till we got down to the Rio Grande Valley and the front right jack starting leaking around the seals and hydraulic fluid began pooling in the jack pad. I called around and no one would attempt a repair - only a full replacement of both jacks (very expensive). I finally found a gentlemen by the name of Jose Angel Trigo who would do the repair. He came to my RV site and removed the jacks from the motor home. I have power gear model 500456 jacks. He took them to his shop to work on. He disassembled the jacks, replaced the cylinders with new stainless steel cylinders, replaced all the seals with heavy duty seals and then returned to reinstall the front jacks on the motor home. An outstanding job. If you are in the RGV and need this kind of work I highly recommend him. His phone number is 956-457-7079.

He charged me $742 to remove jacks; replace cylinders and seals; and replace jacks. He came to my rv site to remove and replace jacks. Noted he was also a good welder where cylinders were new cvylinders were reattached to base plates. At a dealer they would have replaced jacks and cost would have been around 2k.
