Help needed w landing gear on 2011 Jayco 25.5RKS

I just bought a 2011 Jayco Eagle Super Lite 25.5RKS last Saturday. I hauled it from Vegas to Pahrump NV and unhooked it and set it up fine.

This morning I headed out to Beaver Utah where I'm spending the weekend with friends before heading up to Seattle for a new job starting the 12th.

When I tried to unhook it, it would unload the bed, but the motor would start clicking every quarter turn and wouldn't pull it up off the ball. I thought I'd over extended the gear so I brought it up and put down blocks, but still, it would unload the bed the would not raise it off the ball.

I'm absolutely certain I had the Camco gooseneck adapter properly disengaged. I even checked when it was down and the L lever was free.

The motor would slow down as it raised and took on weight but it did that when I unloaded it in Pahrump too.

I'm afraid the gear is stripped, but then why would it raise at all?

This isn't an emergency yet, although it certainly limits my mobility. I did get it level and load on the landing gear and stabilizers so I can easily stay here five or six days, and I could put off starting my new job a week if I have to.

I'm living in it full time and have limited funds so I can't leave it at a service center for weeks on end to pay $150 an hour and 150 percent markup on parts. I'm hoping its something I can repair or replace.

I've included a few pics for reference. If someone has an idea of what I can try I'd greatly appreciate it.

Namaste
Kate

I figured it out!

As I was replaying it in my head last night after I went to bed I realized I had NOT had the disengage lever in the correct position! I went out this morning and sure enough, I'd had it wrong even though I was absolutely certain yesterday.

An abject lesson about making lessons during HALT... Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. I was tired and hungry and made an obvious mistake. Duh!

Hopefully I didn't damage something!
