It is electric. And I'm hoping on fixing it myself. I have two car jacks and some concrete blocks holding it up now.
Someone told me it may be the shear pins but not now to fix them. I am medical smart and 5er dumb!

The legs are a simple mechanical device. Look first to see what is wrong.

The motor works but the legs dont go up or down. I can move them up and down with my hand but they won't stay locked into place that is why I thought it might be the shear pin(found that word in the manual) . However,I don't know how to take it apart to find the place the pin goes or the broken one. Thanks for your help.

Post a digital picture of the landing gear below the bottom of the trailer so we can see if you lock pins are in place.
