JC, if you look to your right in Ads by Google you will come up on PPLMOTORHOMES with any number of jacks for sale. I have ordered from them and they are very helpful and fast shipping. Dependent on your jack #number could be cheap.

You said it needs replacing. If you can take the motor off, look in the yellow pages for a electric motor rebuilder. Maybe even a starter/alternator rebuilder. You should find at least one in every reasonable size town. The starter guys are often near major truck stops too. They can get the motor going for not a lot of dough or offer a replacement option if it is totally kaput. If the problem is in the jack mechanism itself, that may be a different story. But, ask the rebuilder about that too. You never know what they can fabricate.

I've ordered from pplmotorhomes too. Excellent service/response and the prices tend to be on the lower side.

You Said it...

PowerPlus doesn't make the model any longer... wanted $450 to "refit" the existing jack to fit the new motor/gears or $650 for a new Jack. I had to give it a try.
