Need help with rear electric jacks

I have rear electric jacks (Lippert) on my Forest River Fifth Wheeler (Palomno Sabre) that do not respond to ether extend or retract. All the 12 volt CB's are O.K. None of the CB's are indentified specifically for the rear electric jacks. BTW, the fiver is on only five months old. Bought it new but I'm on the road and can't take it back to the dealer. Any thoughts please. Thank you.

If you are using a remote, check the batteries. That is about how long mine lasted. My remote had a screw under the label for removing the back.

also follow the wiring from the battery to the motors. there may be an inline fuse that is causing an issue. I had a similar issue once with my landing jacks and there was an inline fuse blown.

Check at the motor for power when trying to use? If no power, then back-tracking the wiring to find where it stops. Also, check and re-check ground connections.
