    Fleetwood Yuma..swing down stabilizer jack has extended beyond the point its suppose to. In trying to push it back up, I noticed an obstruction... which looks to be a little tab in the sleeve to keep the bottom part of the jack from coming out, which somehow it did. I've tried finagling it, pounding on etc., figuring if it came out it must go back...nothing! Anyone have this issue and resolved it??? Really don't want to replace this jack! I'm guessing they are $$$$$ :(

    Exactly that! Got a bigger hammer, hiking stick with a rubber tip to hold the release flap thingy steady, and 3 good wacks got it back in position.
