One of my outrigger won't go down; is just clicks. Any ideas how to trouble shoot it.

To make things worse it's the first day of three week trip.

If it's mechanical just give it a whack with something it is jammed and the electric motor can't move it, it probably just needs a love tap...

NormPete, please tell us what kind of rv you have. It is easier to get help when we know what kind of rv you own.

if u r in the 5th wheel blog you have a 5er. i had a front landing gear go out on my montana. the top gear was spinning on the shaft of the worm drive. there is no way to fix it w/o a machine shop. i ordered one from lippert and they sent it to me at a site i was going to be at for 4 days. took me about an hour to put the new one in.
