Heads up on powered supports

When I was recently pulling my Cougar X-Lite travel trailer home from the shop, my front powered support bracket lowered itself while I was driving down the freeway. I was fortunate that someone passing me noticed it and motioned for me to pull over. The metal pads were making contact with the pavement and were very hot. I had to manually crank the front support back up. It turns out that a storage box in the front storage area had slide forward and hit the power switch that lowered the front support while I was driving. After cooling down everything is working fine and no damage was done except for some paint loss on the bottom pads of the front support. Wanted to let RV'ers know what can happen when items can come in contact with switches in the front storage area. I now either have the master power switch off or have a piece of wood that keeps items from getting close to the switches.
