Lippert Auto leveling system

Helpful information.
I have a 2014 A.C.E 30.2 and recently my leveling jacks stopped working, after some diagnostics found that the pump motor was getting hot but not turning. since out of warranty, I removed the motor and disassembled and found that the brush's had burnt up and fallen apart.
the cheapest I could find a new motor was $770 and I searched the internet for the parts and just happened upon Eurton Electric in Santa Fe Springs Ca. Web sight and called them up and just so happens that they are the company that rebuilds the motors for most RV manufactures. The keep the parts on hand and are very fast and helpful, I was able to order just the parts I needed and they arrived in just a few days. The $770 dollar pump motor I was able to repair myself for $38 dollars.

Thanks Eurton Electric

Wow! This is one of the reasons RV repair is so expensive. They don't want to fix things, they want to replace entire units....
