5er Front Stabilizers

Wow! Getting those feet up and down is a lot of work.

Has anyone suggested remedies for this?

Maybe electric anything?

Solution!

I learned from Scamp that the landing gear is made by Atwood. I found a motor for Atwood on eBay for less than $125.00.  I have it ordered. We will see what happens when it arrives.  Keep you posted.

Thanks!
Perry

Success!

Well I order an Atwood motor since I learned that our landing gear is Atwood.

Got it on Ebay for about 123.00.

Installation was tricky. The motor took 2minutes to mount but the swithch was the tricky part.

I installed it upside down in a double sided kitchen box to keep it moisture free.

Other than the box which is fairly hidden, it looks original...and it works!

Yippie.  No more cranking!

 

Thanks!

Perry,

You the MAN!!!!

I think the line from the old TV show "A Team" was, "I love it when a plan comes together!".

Here Go the Photos!

Here are the photos showing the installation.  The box was required in order to not cut multiple holes in the unit.

Thanks!
