Landing gear only works on 1 side

We have a 2006 raptor 3712ts and the front passenger(also the side the lang gear motor is on side jack has stopped operating, it was banging before once lifted to a certain point but now will not do anything... Any ideas? Currently have it sitting back on my truck to support it. Thanks!!!

Well the gears look ok. Have you tried using it while looking at the gears to make sure everything that you can see turns. Maybe a gear lose on one of the shafts.

If it was "banging" at hitting the limit(s) before it quit, I'd look for a gear engagement issue. In your second picture, the horizontal rod bevel gear appears to be backed away from the vertical bevel gear. It may just be the picture angle, but something like that would do just what you have described. If that bevel gear isn't fully seated against and engaged with the mating gear, check the allen set screw for looseness, and if it is not tight, back it off a little, pry the bevel gear up against the mating gear, and tighten the set screw. Then again, maybe that is just a roll pin and not a set screw? If so, what keeper holds it tight against the other gear?
But, if that banging was a gear hopping a cog, then eventually the two sides are way out of sync.
I'd check both sides while you are at it.

Yep ...those gears are NOT engaging

See how they engage in this pic



Suspect the shear pin thru the horizontal gear is broken

Everything seemed to run smoothly when I did it by hand, going to put it back together and just try the one side up and down a few times before connecting the following side. Maybe just something loose?? All the noise came from the motor side tho. Following side is super hard to get to as the generator and propane tanks are both in the way. Thanks all for the tips I will let y'all know more when I know more

I agree that it sounds like a tooth jumping because it is not fully engaged. I would look for a shear bolt or a roll pin being sheared off and the gear slid over so it does not engage like it should.

Thanks all I adjusted the roller pin and it seems to be working fine now. I'm going to order the rebuild kit just in case it happens to us on the road somewhere, as well as a couple of roller pins
