Front landing gear binding

We have a 08 cruiser and the front landing gear will only extend a few inches before it it binds up. The motor slows down then pops but it won't extend further, it will extend manually but it's extremely hard. How do I fix this?
Thanks

Is this something that just started? Are the legs bent?

It has been getting worse this time was the 3rd time I've used it. It make a creaking sound on the drivers side

Check

Check to see the shear pins are intact on the drive link bar ( from motor side to idler side legs. Check to see they are both in sync / hit the ground at the same time. Check to see you haven't sheared the mounting rivets off the motor / gearbox chassis to landing gear leg. Check condition of the gearbox drive gears.

Lube everything with silicone spray, NOT WD40 it only attracts dirt & make things worse, if you couldn't tell, not a big fan of WD40 except on rusty bolts.

Have you checked yet to see if they are bent. Did they work OK when you first got the camper? Have you inadvertently moved the camper, either forward or back a little with the legs still down?

We have an 08 Cruiser also and there is a grease zerk for each leg. It's toward the the top of the post facing forward. (inside the front compartment)
