Gears for my electric jack?

Hello. I'm a new member and this will be my first post.

I recently purchased an 1990 Excella 34'; and my wife and I love it. We are able to pull this puppy with our 2004 Dodge Dakota (a big bonus as we did not want to have to buy a new truck).

I currently have a problem with the electric jack. The large drive gear inside the box (connecting the motor to the shaft) is stripped. Looks like it's just a fiber gear.

Can anyone tell me where I can get a new gear? Does Airstream stock them from 1990? Are there third party Airstream parts suppliers I should contact? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Chances are good that it's an H&H Engineering (Division of Barker) jack. Call them at 269-965-2371. There s/b a model # on the case so they can identify it. My experience has been excellent with them for a vintage jack, either parts or clutch rebuilding.

Hey Jimmy, thanks for the response. I gave H&H a call and they do carry those fiber gears. And better still; they actually have a local representative here in Waterloo, Ontario. I called him and he has the part - I will pick it up tomorrow.

As a new member with his first post, I'm super pleased. These do work - I'll be using these forums a lot in the future.

Again, many thanks Jimmy. You've solved my problem.

Dave.

You will need to set the limit switches to prevent it from stripping again. I haven't done it in years so don't remember the details.

I have attached a pdf of the H & H Superjack Manual. It has drawings of the jack as well as instructions on setting the limit switches (re-timing).

Thanks for posting this. I recently replaced mine, but didn't retime it, and now it doesn't retract fully.

Howdy and welcome to Airforums.com, Dave! As you have already seen, no question goes unanswered here for long

The only comment I would add regarding the jack is that when you read the manual, you will see that another reason the gears might strip is a lack of grease in it.

OK, so now the all-important question: where are all the photos of your trailer!?? Inside outside, all over, if you don't mind. I'm totally jealous of those three extra feet you have over me.
