Lippert "level up" base

.Well how this happened I have no idea. We are on our cross country trip in a rented Forrest River FR3. I couldn't extend the steps in front of my home when loading so I auto leveled the rig and the steps went out fully. When we departed I did the "all Jack's up" function and we took off.
So arriving at our first camp ground I "auto leveled" again but thought there was a leak in the compartment where the pump is. So my wife started the process and I observed. Seeing no leak the leveling went on. It was dark by now and the jack system just kept on pumping so we shut it down.
So this morning when we retracted the Jack's the passengers side rear jack pad or foot was GONE !
Does anyone know if this foot just bolts on? I can see a bolt head and now assume it ripped away some how or rusted........I guess
They are lippert "level up" Jack's. Thanks for any help. Chris

It's probably the same jacks as on the Georgetown. If so, it's this one: https://store.lci1.com/9in-foot-pad-...emblies-324269

Yes, there is just a big bolt that screws in from the bottom. It cannot be super-tight because the foot needs to swivel a bit for uneven ground. If people don't try to manually spin the jack feet periodically then it's not unusual at all for the bolt to work loose and a jack foot to fall off.

For now, you could put a thick wood block under the jack piston for it to push on.

Thank you NXR. You nailed the part I ordered from e-trailer. I'm meeting my brother in a week so I had the part shipped to him. I can see the bolt head and yes I've been using a block of wood to push against. The video I found said to use lock tight and a torque wrench.

Interesting. While a new bolt was supplied with the jack foot no torque was specified. I contacted LCI Support and they told me there is no torque.

What did that video say the torque is?

DO NOT use Red Loctite. It is astonishingly easy to bend those jack feet and you'll need a torch to heat the bolt to try and loosen Red Loctite. Blue Loctite may be OK.

Of course, if this is just a rental, go ahead and use Red Loctite as revenge.
