It's very very slow going if you use this to lower it at first I thought it was not moving at all that's how slow it is

Thanks Bailee21. I guess I'm running out to Sears tomorrow. I'm not too impressed that the dealer couldn't tell me that. Enjoy your weekend!

Cheers,��

I got stuck last year when my battery went dead on my 1007. It was said before, it goes so slow, I didn't think it was working.

I wound up jumping the battery from my pickup in order to use the power lift.

For the convenience, I'd almost not have it just for this reason. I'm a redundantcy kind of guy, and this makes me feel naked.

Just got to experience the "manual override" this past weekend as the roof wouldn't go down. When we bought our 2015 Jayco 1207 last year I was most nervous about the remote/electric raise and lower feature. And unfortunately, my fears have been confirmed... twice. Shame on me for not being prepared (my Boy Scout leaders would have scolded me), but since it was "new", I didn't bring along the drill, extension and 1/4" bit in case I had to raise/lower the roof due to electronic failure. So I was doing this with a ratchet. FYI; the motor is geared to move the roof 1" for every 80 rotations. That equals a long time and sore shoulders. My dealer (Burlington RV in SE Wisconsin... who have been great) DID explain the need for a drill to manually raise and lower the roof. Unfortunately, I assumed that Jayco was smarter than me and the system was solid. I've been bit twice now and am awaiting a call back from Jayco to see if I can have my 2015 1207 retrofitted with an old school crank.


Anyway, that's been my experience. Good luck to you!

Thanks to all for the responses. The lift system on our 2016 1007ud is located on the front on the tongue and does not have a fob like the earlier models. The Dutton-Lainson winch is enclosed in a plastic cover where the rocker switch is located, and the power unit is external. Attaching photos.

The dealer tried to locate a hand crank but was unable to find one. A socket will fit over the extension, but it is very hard to turn. I was hoping for a manual crank handle but not sure we can crank it without a strong power drill which we don't have. Anybody found a manual solution for this configuration?

So, after 30 minutes on hold with Jayco this morning finally got through to level 1 support. She took my info and referred me to level 2 who will call me back.

Didn't expect to need my VIN number when I called, thank goodness we were registered!

Hello WVBonnie,
What did the tech tell you regarding the hand crank. I have a 2016 1007UD that failed to work....on my inaugural trip with the camper. I had to hand crank it with a pair of vise grips.
