Leveling jack problem

I have a front jack (electric) manufactured by Atwood that will not fully retract manually. It will retract electrically but when I remove the pin and attempt to push the landing leg fully upward to pin it in the highest position it binds. Has anyone removed the landing leg and can it be done by extending the jack fully or does the complete jack have to be removed from the top? I don't have access to my 5th wheel to work on it except when I move it to a campground or someplace othe than where I have it stored. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can get you an answer from one of my techs but im a bit unsure as to what is binding. Does it seem to be an obstruction insode the tube or the lower portion (the leg itself) bent? I can see if you can replace the inner tube with the foot or maybe a whole jack? LEt me know so I can try and get you the right answer first shot. Any pictures or model numbrs will help if convenient to pass along.

It sound like the lower landing leg might be bent and you might be able to remove it from the bottom. You will have to support the frame with a jack, pull the pin and remove the lower section.
You can then try to straighten the leg or get a replacement piece. If you do not have enough room to remove the lower leg, you will have to remove the whole landing leg from the trailer.
