Hi guys, on a recent trip I had my jack wireless remote stop working, and green light stayed on the remote.Luck was on my side only had a couple inches to retractmanually. Manual says, " Receiver needs reset", "insufficient power at receiver to operate jacks,(Red light on receiver panel)". I can't see where there is or would be a light, or a reset. Had to remove battery from remote to shut it off. Next day all was well. Can't get through to Lippert (new owner),leaving messages, waiting. I can't find a model or part # on jack,remote, receiver, or in manual, (3 pieces of loose paper) lol. TC is a 13' Northern Lite 10-2 cdse, does anyone have same and know the HJ's model #.... Also searching for the MALE socket for a drill, 6 sided 1/2", all my searches are to no avail, where did you get your socket. Thanks, K Mac.

Cant help with remote issue. Hex driver bits common, but likly be 3/8 or 1/2 sq drive so adapter would be needed also common (assuming 1/4 cordless hex drive)
The 1/2" male hex x 1/4" hex isn't that common. Close would be a pipe plug remover but they arent cheap for single bit, about $30.. Proform 67447 Pipe Plug Removal Tool.

umm...This popped up HAPPIJAC Hex Drive Camper Jacks [image] amazon.com/Lippert-182912/dp/B01GP5BSGS/

To run the jacks up and down with a drill, all that you need is a bolt with a 1/2" head. Any hardware store.

Do you mean the camper batteries are new, or the remote batteries?.... my jacks quit working one time and remote did strange things. I tried the cord plugged into the jack control box and still would not work. I replaced the remote control battery and that turned out to be the problem. Everything worked fine after that.

camper, they can be drawn down by the jack power demand to the point of calling for a reset

Did you try one leg motor at a time to reduce amperage draw on the batteries?
They use a lot of power, and when batt is low will not work. I always plug in when I can when lifting the jacks, so it does not pull from the battery,well, mine are wired directly to the battery I think, not the panel, but the charger is providing power to the same wires...
