1996 era manual crank handle

Hello Everyone

I have a 1996 Jayco 3310 RLSS 5th wheel with 2 slides. The smaller one (bedroom slide) works great, the large living room slide is another matter. In order to get it retracted so I can get it home to work on it I need to crank it in. The problem is I don't have a crank handle and I can't seem to find one anywhere. Jayco no longer stocks the tool and every dealer says basically the same thing, "Sorry, I can't help you" followed by, "I'll sell you a new motor and remote manual drive (now a hex) for $$$$$...

The manual drive opening on the opposite the slide of the trailer has a "D" section rod that I assume I'd fit the crank over and wind it in.

Does anyone know of a source for this crank handle or an alternate means to get the slide retracted? And before you ask, I've trouble shot the electric system, motor, etc... I need the tool to crank it in.

Thanks in advance for your help

If you lived near here is recommend a friend who has a blacksmiths shop. That said I'd look for a blacksmith, there are a few who do it as a hobby that might be able to fabricate one for you.
