Question Power lift system override?

Our new 1007 has a power lift system. Is there a way to override the power winch to manually raise or lower the roof? Good to know just in case.

I would imagine there HAS TO BE a manual override feature. Too many things can go wrong. Is there a hole in the back anywhere? I say you crawl under that sucker and trace the cables. They have to lead to a cammed lift somewhere. Check where the lift motor is too. Alot of times, manual overrides are located at the lift motor.

I have the same problem on my 2015 Jayco 1209SC. On the rear of the trailer is a small access door for raising or lowering the roof manually and the dealer told me there was a crank in the under seat storage for doing this but when I got home there was no crank and nothing obvious inside the access door to connect a crank to. I went back to the dealer who says he will have to check with Jayco and call me. He has still not called and has avoided my calls to him.

The view through the access door allows you to see the motor with a small nut on the rotor. Is this what you are supposed to connect a drill to to raise or lower the roof? If so does anybody know what size nut this is and how long an extension I would need? The trailer is in storage right now so I am not able to measure.
