Howdy from Tennessee, I'm Chris aka Moose. I'm glad you've come here to get help. I will do my best to give the answer you are looking for. I help many customers, sometimes my replies are delayed, I will respond once available. I try to be online at 1-5 pm and 10 pm-5 am every day. Who am I helping today?

When you press the lift or lower button do you hear the motor spinning at the lift strut?

Thanks Moose got it fixed while waiting, gear fell off on re assembly, reapplied and is working.
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

That is good news.

In the event, this occurs again. You can set up this camper manually. It is harder but 2 people can do it. You would disconnect that electric lift strut then push up on the top from both sides.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know so I can mark your question complete. Moose
