How to crank the tongue jack?

Along the same lines, we have a question. How do you work the jack manually if it burns out? We just bought an older (1986) SOV and we can't see where you would attach a crank or anything. Any suggestions?

There should be a rubber plug on top of the jack. Look under the plug, there should be a spot to put a manual crank. That is where the light switch for the jack may be, too.

Depending on the model of electric tongue jack that you have, access is slightly different. Basically, you need to remove the top of the power unit to expose the top of the driver shaft. At the top is a bolt head that can manually raise and lower the tongue foot with a long handle wrench or ratchet.

Should be a rubber cap on the op and that is where you insert hand crank!

If you have an older Atwood Jack then you will also need to remove the jack motor to access the manual mechanism.
