This is perfect timing for this post. We had the umbilical cord hooked up to our tow vehicle, but had the kill switch engaged for the trailer battery. The jack (original to our 1966 trailer) would not work. We turned on the trailer battery - nothing. We hooked the trailer up to city power and then the jack would work???

I'm thinking it may just be wise to replace the jack (particularly like the ones with a built in light), but don't want to get in over my head.

Thoughts?

I just ordered new switches for my Barker jack. 6 years old and at the end of this season, it was getting temperamental on the ups/downs. If those donít work, Iíll replace the whole jack system. Cheap stuff first

Good morning all. My problem turned out to be the 30 amp fuse. When I first removed it it looked intact, but put in a new one and it worked. May have blown due to light left on when last parked. Will keep a supply of fuses!

Before you replace the jack, you should make sure you have 12V power to it.
Changing the Jack is pretty easy, but I wouldnít change it I didnít have to.

SSM, i took your lead...new switch a handful of the rubber toggle covers that seem to last only one winter and...woohoo..drum roll...a new vinyl cover to keep the moisture out. First cabin ��

Temperamental...no up, but down would work...then up would work...some times. It was a crap shoot. Never had to get the crank out on the 3 month trip but figured it was only a matter of time and certainly sure to happen at a time that was not of my choosing or convenient.

I bought it from Barker

https://www.barkermfg.com/accessories.html

Not a big cover but sufficient to cover the likely h2o intrusion points...toggle, bubble and light crystal. The latter was showing moisture and Barker instructed me to remove, dry and install. I think mine was a bit loose and leaking at the edge vs from the top at the bubble. I went with the cover to protect the toggle covers which seem to last maybe a season, maybe not.

I changed jacks when the Attwood left me hanging, literally.
It went up but not down. The crank would not budge. (except up).
So, out with the Attwood 4000, in with a Husky 5000.
It's a dream!

here ya go. Nice, reasonable heavy duty. Big enough but not too big that it flails in the wind.
