Very loud landing gear motor

I just added a motor to my landing gear crank on my 19' Scamp, which works fine but is pretty loud. Anyone else experience this? Any ideas on how to insulate or otherwise dampen the noise?

I wouldn't know. I'm 72, and have two "bum shoulders," and I have never had anything but hand crank tongue jacks all my life. Never saw a need for a powered one.

I'm glad you're robust enough to keep using a hand crank; I hope you continue to be so. Meanwhile, not all of us are that fortunate.

Well Paul, I can't say that I'm hardly robust anymore. Even into my mid fifties, I could lift 438 Lbs. Then, along came a couple of bouts with major cancer experiences, I am now just an empty shell of my former self. I used to have 19" biceps, now my upper arms are no bigger than my forearms. My wife can beat me at arm wrestling. I am not strong at all anymore. I have trouble even get up if I kneel on the floor unless I have something to grab to pull myself up with.
