Does anyone know if I can buy a replacement bracket and leg like the one in the picture.
I've read every topic on the forum I can find about these brackets. I've read about the broken bones and more.
No one ever says who made this or where to get another.
My retractable leg works well, it's just that the leg is all rusty.
Appreciate ANY good leads!

I have found the brackets and leg available in years past at an RV supplier. _________________ Patrick Byrd "Byrdman"

If it is just rusty, clean it up, sand it with wet and dry sandpaper, to get rust off, coat with "Naval Jelly" to stop any rusting--converts to an inner coating, and then spray paint with Rustoleum. You can even get "chrome" if you want. I would do a brown, similar to the teak trim.
Topline: (FL3400-305) 30-1/2" Locking\Folding Leg gas a similar mechanism--but not identical, and is available on Amazon for about $30.. Be sure that the 30 1/2" is the size you want.
Vintage Trailer Supply has a square tube 30 1/2 folding leg--again slightly different mechanism on the top for $20... _________________ Bob Austin
