Probably it's a ninety-nine percent chance the problem is with the raise/lower switch. Those switches handle huge, high-current voltage spikes when in use, and the contacts don't hold up to that.

This happened to us just yesterday when we picked up our trailer after a quick service. Fortunately for us it was just a fuse that blew. No matter though because you should be able to raise and lower the jack with the hand crank so you're never stuck somewhere.

If it were a blown fuse, then 'scroon' wouldn't have the light function on his power jack. The big money bet is still on a failed switch... the switch is the Achilles Heel of the power jacks; everybody should carry a spare.

We had a tool for hand cranking the jack provided to us with the delivery of our trailer. It looks like the tool for the stabilizer legs only smaller. I'll have to take a photo and share it.

Great it looks like the power jack has a slotted fitting as opposed to the hex head on the stabilizer legs

The switch in my '13 FC was failing randomly this summer. Before tracking down a new switch I disassembled the head and flushed out the switch with contact cleaner. Lot of fine debris came out with the fluid, and it's been fine since. Even though it appears to be sealed, looks like road dust still makes it in and coats the contacts.
