Stuck how? Does it blow the fuse? Make bad sounds? Have you tried cranking it with the emergency crank handle? The handle fits on the square shaft that sticks out the top.

It might just be gummed up and need servicing. Please elaborate,

@John E Davies I'm concerned about your stabilizer jack.  What is that hole in the center of the side (silver part - whatever that is).  Looks like it is drilled as there are shavings under it.  Just wondering.

That hole is not in my jacks. It appears that it has been drilled and tapped.

Sharp eyes! You are the first to comment on that. I said a bad word when I first saw them. The jack is the front one, it has a plastic rain/ switch cover. The screws are self tapping and when the factory built it, they did not care that shavings were going everywhere. They don’t hurt anything. There were no shavings inside the gearbox. ... the drilled holes do not pass all the way through.

I wasn’t trying to hijack the thread, I just wanted to show what the drive shaft looks like. The two in back have no plastic covers.

Sometimes when you run the jack up too far, the torque converter in it will get jammed/cross-threaded/buggered (pick a term you like). At any rate, the motor is unable to make the internal screw turn up or down. This happened to me several years ago. I put the jack handle on it and really had to push/pull hard to break it loose. But, once done, it operated normally and has ever since. Remember, it may be hard to break loose.

How to fix a stuck stabilizer jack in 2016 elite II?

More details would be helpful.  I had a rear jack stuck in the up position, like Steve did.  I removed the mattress to access the top of the jack and used the supplied jack handle to lower the jack until the gears caught and then it worked fine.  I try not to raise the jacks to the click-click-click position for that reason.  Mike

Years ago, we painted a line on our Jacks so I could see where to stop them before the click clack noise .

I don’t worry about clack clack clack. I run them all the way up until they make that unpleasant sound, but then I run them all back DOWN a fraction. I suspect that the rare times that these jacks freeze up is because the clutch has stopped in mid-clack and it binds up somehow ..... I have no idea if this is true. I have never read this. I am probably just wasting your time. If mine ever jam I will come back and post an update. 😀

FYI there is no way to lube the clutch, it is sealed tight.

This is exactly what we do.  I found that the paint would wear off so I now use some thin white tape to mark where to stop.

Parkervet, what's your battery level? Are you plugged in? Our jacks won't operate if the voltage on the battery is too low. They might start, then quit.

Fuse? Bad ground?
