Really sorry to hear that has happened to someone else. Fortunately no damage or injuries? We were sleeping when it happened to us. We thought it was a earthquake.

Man that sucks, our trailer didn't fail that bad but I DO feel your pain!!!
Defiantly get a hold of Lippert though
Yes definitely feel your pain and helplessness.
Everyone has different levels of experience and expertise so be very cautious in what you attempt to remedy your situation.
A local dealer transported a fork lift from their lot which had a hitch plate attachment, along with some sturdy cribbing materials. A well equipped wrecker service will have some equipment also. I've also heard of a tilt-bed wrecker being used.
Swapping those jacks can be a chore too. Those original suckers are very long. The new style required new mounts welded to the frame etc. not for the faint of heart.
We were diverted to a Lippert auth. agent in N. Cali. and they flew in a tech from IN for the retrofit...
Please update us and above all be safe!
