I just wanted to make a quick post in case someone is looking for answers on whether or not to replace a power winch with a manual. The quick answer is YES. I have always been a little concerned with power winches since the one in my first popup went bad while on a week long multi location trip a few years ago. Then we bought a brand new popup in 2018 and recently the power winch has been giving me some issues. I checked the other day and the pawl gear, and ratchet arm, are super worn causing the roof to drift down. I contemplated buying the new parts and fixing the power winch but we are getting ready for another long trip and I just have been super nervous about it. I pulled the trigger on a manual winch from Goshen stamping. I called them on Tuesday, it arrived today. The switch out took me about an hour as I was having problems getting the cable the way I needed it. I did not have to replace the cable, but I had them send me a new one just in case. 37 cranks...that's the number of times I have to crank the manual winch to fully raise my roof. 37 cranks...that's the number that gives me piece of mind that the switch or some other electrical component won't go out on us while camping. So to recap, in my opinion, if you are considering replacing your power winch with a manual, go for it. At least for me I think it was the right choice.
