Camped this past weekend and while lifting the roof, the cable of my remote got caught in the manual crank shaft. The lift stopped and I soon realized what happened and figured out that by binding up, I may have pulled the wires from within the silver XLR connector. I had to manually crank it up, then down 2 days later. I found on a facebook group that I can (should) disconnect the wires of the electric lift to make hand cranking easier. It was also said (but contested) that I could discussed the 12V battery to achieve the same result. My fear came with the roof crashing down if I disconnected the wires (which are taped together). Is my fear unfounded? Also, is the battery method valid? Lastly, can I purchase a socket that has the notches already in for use in an electric drill, should this happen again? I'm going to try to take the XLR connector apart and resolder the wires to it. If anyone knows of the wiring mapping for this, I'd love to see that too. I found the part online, but just would rather try to fix it myself than pay for a new one. I've enjoyed learning how to work on and fix my pop-up, and I'd love to conquor this!
