Does this have two gear tracks on the bottom connected by a cross shaft?

to two gear tracks and cross shaft
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 10 months ago

M​ost of the time when this happens, one side has lost the bolt that holds that shaft in place OR the roll pin on the gear has sheared. Not expensive to repair, but if you are hindered in the use of one arm it might be tough.

Do you have a good mobile tech in your area that can come and give you a hand or even a friend that has some experience with tools. I can describe how this is repaired. The parts are only a few dollars. Let me know. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.

I just wanna know, how can I close it?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Nobody close by
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 10 months ago

It will take a large Crescent wrench to help turn the shaft or a few people to push on that side of the room while you use the motor. Care has to be taken not to put the room in such a bind that it gets damaged. I would find a good mobile tech to come and assist you. Most shops know of one and so do most RV parks. You can't do this yourself.
