If you have a part number try Fleetwood parts 800 322 8216. I bought Power Gear jack motor brakes and shear pins from them. They may not have the gear but you never know till you call.
Good luck.

Most any RV dealer can get the part for you.. Just get the part number to them.

And... Fill up your checking account.. You'll need it. Since there is no other source than Power Gear, the price is.. High.

That said, with gears you might try for alternate suppliers. Now the one I needed was metal, not plastic, but some years ago I had one go out in the house (a device I used there) the factory did not sell it,and there was no other source, they wanted to sell me an entire "Transmission" for like $180.00

I local machinest made me one for 25 bucks. And gave me five off for cash on delivery no less.

That hand made part outlasted the OEM part by ... a great amount.

Can't help you much unless you may go to a RV repair facility and find something in the junk pile. Power Gear jacks, for me, have been nothing but trouble since i bought the rig in'07. Any feed back from anyone?

Here is a thread with 624 posts re: Electric Power Gear Jacks. Power Gear jack problem .If you care to read them ,you will be able to solve all of your PG issues as most of us have.
In there you will see statistics of other brand name jacks that are far more troublesome than PG. The grass is not always greener is what I gather from all this. If you do go to this thread and have any questions, A few members will be there to assist. Good luck and welcome to IRV2.
