Just find an auto parts store, get a hacksaw, and cut the post off. It sounds like it's no good anyway.

Nationwide RV Sales in Grain Valley MO near Interstate

Googling I came up with this possibility -- Nationwide RV Welcome to Nationwide RV

According to their web site, they have a maintenance area ... they may be on the way for Steve. Their address is 3001 NE Jefferson, Grain Valley, MO 64029. Telephone 816-847-8888. Toll Free number 888-727-8878. They appear to be on the north of Interstate 70 on a frontage road between Adams Point Golf Club and the East Kansas City Airport (on the south side of the Interstate).

manual jack ?
get the cover on top off.
There is a small pin that is holding one of the wheels in place.
this pin might be broken
I had the same problem I just replaced the pin with a nail even a hairpin or paperclip will do to get the jack up.

remcolent, they did try that and it did not work. It is stuck but good! But thank you for the suggestion!

Nancy, thank you for the great information! He thinks he is about 2 hours from Kansas City, so it may be an alternative if he does not find anything before then (service departments are closing as we speak).

Terry--he had thought of that but says his arm is not that good, to cut through that thick steel. He is hoping for a shop with a torch or something.

He is about 50 miles north of St. Joseph, which is where Brad broke down before, so I know there are repair shops there and encouraged him to stop there to see what he can find. I'll report back when I hear from him.

Thank you all very much!

Susan

That's a good idea! Home Depot or Lowes would be open later hours, and would hopefully have one. Do you think it would also cut the foot inside the jack?

Thanks!

Susan

If not, he can get a cutoff wheel and a grinder, and use that. The only problem with that is he would need electricity, if he doesn't have a generator with him.

Good point, too! He could probably find a gas station or other place with electricity he could use.

Thank you!

If he hasn't already passed it, "The Next Exit" says there's a Lowe's and Wal-mart Supercenter at exit 50 outside of St. Joseph.

I just talked with him again, and he says he thinks he will try to drive on in with it. He has gone 120 miles so far with no issues from it, and is hoping that will be the case all the way. I will keep you updated as I hear from him.

Thank you all again for your quick responses and willingness to help!

Susan

Following this thread I feel so helpless

Steve will pull it off
(But not the tongue jack, that will need to be cut off)


PS, great to have Steve home.

Less than 75 dollars for a cheap sawzall--and a pack of blades. Good tool to own.
