I was on my way home from camping this weekend, and I was about five miles from home, and I heard this grinding noise coming from the hitch area. I first thought something was wrong with my hitch, since I had seen the posts regarding the issues with the suburban hitches welds coming loose. So I put on my my flashers and crawled down an off ramp. When I got out, the hitch was fine, but the post for the jack had some how came down while I was driving.
I have been camping for years, this is the first power jack I have had, but had never seen or heard of the post coming down while driving.
Needless to say, I think it might be shot, the goods news was I was able to pull over and take the jack completely out, so that I could continue home. Has this ever happend to anyone else, or was it just a freak occurance?
