Lance Truck Camper Jacks

I'm getting ready to buy my first truck camper. A friend of mind mentioned to me that I should be aware of the potential problem of the jacks coming out with time. Anyone here on the forum have/had bad experiences with the jacks on their Lance campers?

Usually, this is caused by operator error, such as not retracting the jacks before moving.

We've owned three Lance campers a Lance 815 , a Lance 845 , an a Lance 881. Two had electric jacks one had manual jacks . None have given us anything to worry about . The Lance 881 is the one we presently have and by far the one we have enjoyed the most .

No problems

Had a 2003 Lance 9:15 for 11 yrs. Jacks were still as tight as when we bought the camper. We sold it 2 months ago to a fellow heading to Alaska to pan for gold.
