Tongue Jack issue

My jack will lower the trailer but it will not raise it. I took off the cover, disconnected the switch, ordered a new switch, installed the new switch....and the same problem exists. Any suggestions, beside getting a Husky?

Mine did the opposite, it went up but not down, leaving me with the coupler hitched and the truck rear in the air and no way to unhook!
Since yours goes down, you have power.

Assuming you're not stranded, try getting the weight off the jack. Use a bottle jack or in a pinch, the tow vehicle's jack. Once the weight is off does it move? Mine did, but I didn't trust it. I think mine got in a position where the shaft was torqued against the sleeve and it didn't move. Why it went up but not down is still a mystery. Using the hand crank didn't work. Same problem.

Are you connected to shore power or using batteries alone? If the latter, whatís the state of charge on the batteries?

I donít recall seeing the type of Jack you have, but if itís one that uses limit switches, a bad limit switch is another possibility. The Atwood jacks supplied these days donít use limit switches, however.
